Apex Legends: Arsenal Trailer Details Ballistic’s Abilities and Ultimate

Equip a third weapon with Sling, use the Whistler to overheat enemy weapons, or go crazy with infinite ammo when unleashing Tempest.

Season 17 of Respawn Entertainment Apex Legends, Arsenal, starts next week. It adds a new Legend to the roster, new points of interest and changes to World’s Edge, and much more. A new trailer is available, detailing what players can expect with the newest playable Legend, Ballistic.

As part of the Assault class, Ballistic can access supply bins for High-Value Weapon Attachments and carry extra ammo stacks in each inventory slot. Whistler, his Tactical Ability, fires a projectile that heats an enemy’s weapon as they shoot it, damaging them on overheating. Holding the button allows for locking on.

His Passive is Sling, letting him store a third weapon. It can’t use Attachments but feeds into Tempest, Ballistic’s Ultimate. This grants faster reload speed to nearby teammates, faster-unarmed movement speed and infinite ammo. The Sling weapon is also upgraded to Gold rarity, making it much more lethal.

Apex Legends Season 17: Arsenal begins on May 9th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch.
