Apex Legends kicks off today and Respawn Entertainment has provided a deeper look at the new Legend Wattson ahead of her official release.
The trailer gives a look at Wattson’s past with a narration of her connection to Kings Canyon as well as another look at her abilities.
Natalia Paquette’s is Wattsons real name, and she earned the name we know her as due to her love for electricity according to the video.
Her abilities look to be an interesting change to the style as she can line up her Perimeter Security pylons across from one another, triggering if players run through them causing damage and a slowing effect.
Her ultimate could be quite impactful, especially against Gibraltar and Bangalore as when used it will destroy “incoming ordnance” and also repair damaged shields.
- Tactical Ability: Perimeter Security – Connect nodes to create electrified fences that damage and slow enemies.
- Passive Ability: Spark of Genius –
Ultimate Accelerants fully charge your Ultimate Ability, and standing near interception pylons boosts your Tactical Ability recharge.
- Ultimate Ability: Interception Pylon –
Place an electrified pylon that destroys incoming ordnance and repairs damaged shields as long as it stands. (Max: 3)

- Improved battle pass
