As Season 14 comes to an end, the community's attention turns to Season 15. In the new season, players will have the opportunity to play Catalyst. Here is everything you need to know about the new Apex Legend!
Catalyst is an “experienced terraformer and defensive conjurer” whose real name is Tressa Smith. According to the EA blog, Catalyst “uses her remarkable control of ferrofluid to manipulate the battlefield.” Respawn revealed Catalyst as a new legend in season 15.
Catalyst is from the same planet as Seer, Boreas, where its moon, Cleo, has been shattered and is potentially going to fall. In her Story from the Outlands video, Catalyst attempts to save Cleo with her best friend, but the plan ultimately fails, resulting in her best friend’s death.
Now, Catalyst has joined the Apex Legends to protect Cleo on the frontlines, as it’s now home to the Apex Legends and will be the new map for Season 15.
Catalyst's abilities seem to be focused on creating structures for protection, so Catalyst could be a new defensive Legend. So, here are all of her abilities:
- Passive: Reinforce - Standing near your ferrofluid structures, doors will strengthen their integrity and allow them to take significantly more damage.
- Tactical: Ferro Shot - On impact, the shot creates a ramp of hardened ferrofluid that can be extended with more shots. Can also be used to create platforms on walls.
- Ultimate: Iron Tower - Ferrofluid rises up from below pushing you upwards while creating a tall solid column under you.
Ferro Fluid appears to be a new type of substance that we haven’t seen before in Apex, so it’s likely related to the new map as well.
For now, that’s all we know about the new Season 15 Legend, expected to be Catalyst. As more information about the new Legend is revealed, we’ll keep you updated.
