Apex LegendsThe new season is almost here, and since Respawn demonstrated the new Arenas mode earlier this week, it’s Valkyrie’s turn. On Thursday, Respawn released a new trailer showing Valkyrie and her kit.
Valkyries passive ability is their signature jetpack. The jetpack gives her the ability – unique among legends – to fly high above Apex Legends Battlefield, but it has some limitations. For one, it has a limited amount of fuel and Valkyrie will have to return to the ground to recharge. Also, she can’t shoot while flying, but she can use her gun if she deactivates the jetpack – in other words, she can only shoot while falling. The jetpack itself is also loud and noticeable, which makes it a perfect target while soaring through the air.
Valkyrie has a second passive ability, Reconnaissance, which allows her to use survey beacons to mark the location of the nearest circle on the map.
Valkyrie’s tactical ability is called Missile Swarm and allows you to fire 12 missiles in a specific location. The missiles fall into a 4×3 grid, damaging and stunning enemies. Missile Swarm can also be used while Valkyrie is flying with her jetpack, so she can aim it at areas she may not be able to see from the ground.
Your ultimate ability is called Skyward Dive. With this ability, Walküre uses her jetpack to create some massive mobility options for her team. After a short activation period, Valkyrie can fly themselves – and any allies hooked on during activation – high in the air so they can jump back to the ground. This allows Valkyrie to reposition their entire roster, either to quickly exit Dodge or to play an offensive game if they dare.
Valkyrie will arrive as part of along with the new Arenas mode Apex Legends‘Legacy Update on May 4th.
