Forge and his Abilities

'Apex Legends' Season 4 starts February 4 with a new Legend named Forge. He's a melee-focused brawler. 'Apex Legends' is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Respawn Entertainment/EA

As a Legend, Forge is much more of a melee brawler when compared to Season 3's distance-focused Crypto. He's a five-time Hyper Federation fighting champion sponsored by Hammond Robotics. His abilities, then, favor power and being up close. Here's a quick recap of the abilities that have leaked so far. As with all leaks, these may not be representative of Forge's final version.

  • Pull Shot: Short-range grapple that pulls enemies into you or can be used to launch yourself into the air.
  • Ground Slam: Press crouch while airborne to slam into the ground below.
  • K.O. Punch: Jump forward in a direction. Press crouch while airborne to slam into the ground below.
  • One-Two: Bull rush in a straight line. If you hit an enemy along the way, press again to do an upper-cut launching you into the air.
  • One The Ropes: Enhances your melee to do more damage the lower your health is. Dealing melee damage gives you temporary overshield.
  • Victory Rush: Killing a player with a melee attack restores your health and gives you a 30 percent speed boost for 10 seconds

The Sentinel Sniper

The new Season 4 weapon is a bolt-action sniper rifle Unlike other snipers, this one has a charge mechanic that favors risk-reward scenarios for shot timing.

Season 4 Ranked

Ranked play gets overhauled in Season 4 as well. Here's what we know.

  • Master Tier: This new tier is the new Apex Predator tier awarded beyond 10,000 RP.
  • Apex Predator: Limited to the top 500 players per platform. You can be bounced out of predator if other players get more RP than you.
  • Ranked Splits: This time there will be two splits in the Battle Pass instead of one. Your rank will reset between splits, and each split will be played on a different map. So Kings Canyon is coming back, but it may be relegated to ranked play only.
  • Rewards depend on the highest rank you got in either split. If you have the same rank in both splits, you'll get a special animated rank badge.

Apex Legends is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Season 4 is set to begin February 4.
