All of Newcastle’s abilities in Apex Legends

The best offense is a good defense.

Newcastle is a defensive Legend, and number 21 on the roster. He is the older brother of one of the original Legends, Bangalore. His playstyle and personality are both quite the opposite of his sister, and he is all about being a team player. Newcastle has three unique abilities, and all of them revolve around a type of shield. Each shield works a little differently, though. Let's take a look.

Passive: Retrieve the Wounded

Newcastle is able to both move downed allies by dragging them while he revives them, as well as protect them with his Revive Shield.

Perk: Fortified

Like Gibraltar and Caustic, Newcastle takes 15% less incoming damage due to the size of his hitbox.
