Apex Legends Season 15 New Legend – Catalyst

For Season 15, the new Legend is Catalyst, a Legend who relies on ferrofluid, which is basically just liquid that reacts to magnets. She has the ability to create traps with her special metallic goo, including a wall to slow enemies and spikes to…well, spike them.

Clearly, Catalyst is very much a control-type Legend, a character adept at controlling the battlefield with their special abilities.

With the ability to slow down your enemies using your ultimate and make certain areas uninhabitable with your tactical, you can really control how enemies are most likely to approach you.

Apex Season 15 New Map – Broken Moon

The latest map to be added to the map rotation for Season 15 is Broken Moon, a twisted landscape with a mixture of natural elements and heavily industrialized areas.

The devs broke down the new map in their dev blog, which details some of the excellent new features of the map. By far, one of the most incredible map features is the Zip Rails, bright yellow cables that you can use to zip around the map with ease. Eat your heart out, Pathfinder.

If you’re interested in the map rotation for this season, here it is:

  • Broken Moon
  • Olympus
  • World’s Edge
