A new Apex Legends Season 13 leak has revealed some gameplay of Newcastle’s passive ability in action – check it out!
New seasons of Apex Legends don’t come around very often but they are almost always worth the wait.
A new Legend and Batte Pass, as well as map updates and weapon balancing changes, keep the game fresh and Season 13 will have all of these!
In fact, many players are especially excited about the new Legend joining the battle, Newcastle. This isn’t only because he’s the first new support Legend in a couple of years, but also thanks to his close connection to an existing Legend.
Luckily for all you impatient Apex fans, a leak has revealed the first Newcastle gameplay alongside his passive ability!
But first, who is Newcastle in Apex Legends?
Apex Legends Season 13 Leak Reveals Newcastle Gameplay & Passive Ability
With the Apex Legends Season 13 release date fast approaching, plenty of leaks about the new update have been surfacing.
A new gameplay leak shared on the r/ApexUncovered subreddit shows Newcastle’s passive ability in action.
This ability, supposedly called ‘Retrieve The Wounded’ will be especially handy for getting out of tricky situations.
Retrieve the Wounded lets Newcastle drag downed teammates while he’s reviving them and also protect himself and the person he’s reviving with a handheld shield.
It might not be quite as effective as Lifeline’s shield but this is just a small part of his moveset. Leaks also suggest that Newcastle will have a controllable shield drone as well as an ultimate that lets him create a small fortified stronghold.
With a strong movest like this, don’t be surprised if Newcastle rises to the top of the Apex Legends Pick Rate Rankings!
