Apex Legends is one of the best battle royale games and was released back in February. Respawn Entertainment is behind the development of the game. The game was released silently without any announcement, but that worked in favour of Apex Legends as it garnered 50 million players in its first month.
However, its admiration has declined with time. Albeit the company is trying hard to keep fans engaged with the game by introducing new characters. Today, the details of a new character named “Jericho” have been leaked online.

The name of this legend was first surfaced online back in February at the time when the game was just released. However, during that time, it was unclear whether it was a character or weapon. The abilities of the new hero that have been revealed by ‘The Gaming Merchant’ have been detailed below.

Ballistic Shield

Armor that protects the player from fire damage. It looks like a Gibraltar shield, but it remains to be seen whether the character can use both the shield and weapons at the same time.
On Your Six (Passive Ability)

Ballistic Shield continues to protect the hero even when he does not use it.

Shield-Breaker Javelins

Jericho throws two spears, charged with electricity, that penetrates the armour of the enemy. This ability can be really helpful in situations where the opponents have higher-levelled shields.
You can also check out the video released by the Youtuber revealing the details of the leaked legend Jericho. For the past few weeks, many leaks and rumours have been floating around regarding the new Apex Legends characters.

Earlier, we had seen leaks regarding many unreleased characters, including Crypto, Rosie, Skunner, and Nomad. But it will be really interesting to see which new legend will be the first to mark its entry into the game. Many fans are predicting that Crypto will be added to the game during the start of Apex Legends Season 3.

Apex Legends Season 3 is expected to start on October 1, 2019. Season 2 of Apex Legends introduced a new character Wattson to the game. Following this pattern, Crypto or any other new legend will likely make its entry into the game in Season 3.

Respawn also added Solo mode to the game for the first time under the Iron Crown Collection event. The Iron Crown Collection event started on August 13 and the event will end on August 27, 2019. ‘Solo mode’ of the game was well-received by fans but Loot boxes controversy tainted its success.
