The first Legend of Apex Legends' Octane, appeared on March 19 next to the Wild Frontier Battle Pass. Innumerable rumors and leaks marked the advance to Octane's entry into Kings Canyon, including the curious drop of the launch pads that appear in the Market area of the map.

According to his official biography, Octavio "Octane" Silva is the heir to the CEO of Silva Pharmaceuticals, who often succumbed to boredom. To entertain himself, he picked himself up, "he performed deadly stunts and posted holovids of it to his fans."
One of these stunts was drilled by the Gauntlet in Titanfall 2 . It seems that Respawn was inspired by the current world record holder in the Gauntlet, as Octane also threw grenades and used them to run faster and jump. Unfortunately, he has miscalculated the target and ruined his legs. Fortunately for him, his buddy Lifeline helped him with a bionic order fake order. The high tech legs gave him unique healing abilities and made him run faster. The 24-year-old knew he could succeed and decided to try his luck at the Apex Games.
Octane's abilities perfectly match his need for a constant adrenaline rush. Like all legends, Octane has a passive, tactical, and ultimate ability:
Passive: Swift Mend
Octane has one of the group's best passive abilities. Swift Mend lets Octane gradually regenerate his health as long as he is not harmed. However, it is a bit of a slow drop as you only restore one health point every second. The other advantage of Swift Mend is that you save inventory because you do not have to carry so many health items. You can also make your teammates who are not focused on health more available.
Octane's tactical ability is a perfect encapsulation of how prepared he is to go fast. Activating the stim increases the movement speed by 30 percent for six seconds. That may not sound like much, but you can quickly escape or flee yourself. Using Stim costs 10 percent of your health, so it's best to use it only when you are screened and not near death.
Ultimate: Launch Pad
Octane's ultimate ability utilizes a Startpad that you and your teammates can use to launch into the air. It does not send you as high as the red balloon ziplines, but you can skip relatively tall buildings. The problem with Octane's ultimate behavior is that it's not very practical. Wraith's portals are more versatile and useful, and even the Pathfinder Zipline lets you travel in a more directional and less conspicuous manner. It's fun to use, and Octane is all about stunts.
Octan's speed-focused abilities make him an ideal legend for those who prefer to do their damage close up. His tactical skills are incredibly useful in structures and building complexes. Let's be honest. It is quite difficult to give someone the upper hand if he moves faster than you. Octan's tactical skills do just that by hitting enemies off guard. The 10 percent sacrifice is worth it, bearing in mind that after the killing of the brand, you start regenerating anyway. Finally, the speed kills.
This means that Octane can be an absolute machine with weapons such as shotguns, SMGs, automatic rifles and even side weapons. Any weapon that is most effective at close range is ideal for the abilities of Octane. Octane's speed of movement through tactical skills and his health regeneration make him a great option for healing. No, he's not a substitute for Lifeline, but he does provide an interesting skill for your squad.
As for the Ultimate, you and your team can sneak an unsuspecting squad through the air, but Octane is Stim's best ability. When used effectively, you can gain a unique advantage.
