Season 13 Legend Newcastle

apex legends newcastle

Apex Legends Season 13 will bring a new Legend named Newcastle, who is suspected to be a Defensive Legend. This new Legend is also Bangalore’s brother, who was revealed in the Saviors trailer.

His description on the EA Saviors blog reads: “The hero of Harris Valley, Newcastle will need to protect his squadmates and their secrets in order to survive the Apex Games.”

Newcastle skills

Thanks to EA Blog and trailer, we also got a glimpse of some of his abilities. Although this trailer was not a game, it still provides a good idea of ​​what this Legend will do in the game. Since we had leaks about the abilities of this Legend, we also have an indication of the names of the abilities.

Passive: recover the wounded

  • Using his wrist-mounted Revive Shield, Newcastle can protect himself and his partner from incoming fire as he revives and carries his ally to safety. The Revive Shield works with Newcastle’s own Knockdown Shield, so finding higher levels of this item increases the strength of this ability.

Tactical: mobile shield

  • Newcastle creates a floating energy shield and can control its movement to adapt to the constantly changing frontlines of the battlefield. He advances the line, covers a retreat, or turns the shield to protect you against a sudden flank. The versatility of Mobile Shield and the shield’s over/under projections provide creative opportunities for the tactical defender.

Final: the castle wall

  • Pulling his signature shield from his back, Newcastle leaps into action and slams the shield into the ground activating the construction of a massive fortress to give him and his allies a strong defensive position. Enemies in its path are knocked back and those who try to pass through the energized wall are punished and slowed.
  • While Newcastle can jump great distances in a single jump with his Ultimate, he is even stronger when used to regroup. When targeting an ally, Newcastle can jump higher and farther than normal, allowing him to heroically reach his partner and turn the tide of a fight.

Storm Point Map Changes

Tropical Apex Legends BR’s Storm Point map is also getting some changes in Season 13. After leaks and teasers, the Saviors trailer revealed a battle between the Legends and a massive sea monster to which the Legends were victorious.

This sea monster will now be part of the map as the “Beast Taken Down”. Players will be able to get inside the corpse of the sea monster, as well as on top of it and the building around it.

Replicator Changes

Apex Legends Season 13 is bringing some interesting changes to the Replicator, changing some of the options players will have when crafting.

In Season 12, we saw weapons put on the Replicator for the first time, the Flatline and the Longbow. Now, in Season 13, we’re seeing two different weapons enter the Replicator, bringing the Flatline and Longbow back to floor loot.

According to an image of Blog about Storm Point map changes, the R-301 and Rampage will go into the Replicator for Season 13, which means players will only be able to get these weapons by crafting them, as they will be looted.

“Rise and fall through the ranks together in a reworked ranking system that rewards teamwork and skill.”
