Ballistic Release Date in Apex Legends

Ballistic is the Season 17 Legend in Apex Legends. Season 17 kicks off on May 9, 2023 and is expected to last until August 1, 2023.

Ballistic Abilities in Apex Legends

Ballistic brings a unique set of abilities to Apex Legends as a Refined Gunslinger. Here are the abilities Ballistic brings into the game of Apex Legends.

Passive: Weapon Sling

Ballistic is able to carry around three weapons in his arsenal. The catch is the third weapon cannot be equipped with attachments and is linked to his ultimate ability. The weapon can be used like any other weapon, but requires you to access it via the inventory or Character Utility Action.

Tactical: Whistler

Whistler is a projectile attack that can debuff enemies, causing their weapons to overheat with use. If debuffed players fire their weapon too much, it will overheat, dealing damage. Holding down the Tactical Button will allow players to lock on to a target to shoot the projectile.

Ultimate: Tempest

Ballistic's Ultimate buffs nearby teammates with faster reloads, faster unarmed movement speed, and infinite ammo. Ballistic will also equip and enhance his third weapon, turning it into a fully-kitted gold weapon.

How to play Ballistic in Apex Legends

Ballistic's abilities are a dream for players who love pure gunfights. Not only does Ballistic have a kit that will rival the gunfire strength of Vantage and Rampart, but his ultimate ability can benefit the team greatly.

Ballistic's passive gives him the ability to carry various weapon types, meaning you can expand your arsenal for different combat situations. While most players will have to stick to the standard two weapon slots, Ballistic's three weapon slots will give players the upper-hand in equipping the right weapon for the right situation.

His ultimate ability can be a game changer, especially since the third weapon gets a massive upgrade to fully-kitted gold, infinite ammo, and some faster movement speed. His ultimate can be used to quickly close distance and overwhelm enemies with tons of gunfire and the threat of an instantly gold-kitted weapon.
