Respawn has revealed a narrative trailer for its subsequent Apex Legends hero through its “Tales from the Outlands” sequence. Ballistic is a washed up veteran of an Apex Video games predecessor who, would not you already know it, will get pulled out of retirement for one final job.

The trailer reveals a distinctly The Dude-looking Ballistic puttering round his mansion earlier than getting enraged by a 30 for 30 type documentary about his Thunderdome profession, which concluded with him getting his teammate and brother-in-law killed due to a “egocentric” and “crowd-pandering” fight type. 

Effectively, now his estranged son’s attempting to get within the game, so Ballistic sobers up, provides himself a Max Payne 3-style shave and haircut, and gently arranges (learn: takes a hostage and calls for) to take his son’s place.

Ballistic’s set for a extra full breakdown with the upcoming season reveal trailer on the twenty fifth, however I already dig his lore and look⁠—’punished, guilt-ridden gunslinger’ is all the time in. He additionally seems like my kinda character mechanically too⁠—he might need mellowed out a bit from his show-boating, hot-dogging type of Battle Royale gunplay, however not that a lot. 

His hot-headed hostage taking, Assault function, and “Refined Gunslinger” title all make me assume he’ll be an all-or-nothing glass cannon form of man. We’ll know extra with the April 26 trailer and subsequent season’s full arrival on Could 9.
