GOING UP?: Gravity Lift is a massively useful ability that can make big plays

When using the ability, Horizon can throw her Repulsion Star to an area where it will create a lift that will pull players upwards, boosting them outwards when they exit.


Gravity Lift will be an incredibly flexible ability with plenty of uses for allies and enemies alike.

For instance, if your team can get to a nice bit of cover up above, it's a perfect transport. And if your opponents are hiding in a good spot, you can use Gravity Lift to pop them up into the air for easy shooting.


Horizon's Passive ability is Spacewalk.

Spacewalk increases movement control in the air, and reduces fall damage/impact.

UNITY: Black Hole brings people together like nothing else

When using Black Hole, Horizon will throw her robot, N.E.W.T., to an area to create a black hole that will pull all players toward it.


This ultimate is devastating, completely removing opponents from cover and leaving them defenseless as the Black Hole holds them still for you.

Just be aware there is a small delay from when N.E.W.T. touches down to when the black hole is activated, giving players a chance to escape.


Apex Legends introduces each new legend with their very own trailer, covering their background, abilities, and giving some gameplay footage.
