    BLOCKADE – The Staunch Defender – Defender

    Big. Lumbering. Moody. BLOCKADE is the master of protection. The Paladin of the Apex Games. You want to take out his squad? You gotta get through him first. 



    * Passive Ability – Defended: BLOCKADE starts with a white shield. When it breaks it breaks permanently. 

    * Tactical Ability – Blast Back: BLOCKADE stomps the ground sending a forceful wave in a 360 degree radius. Deals knockback and slow to all enemies caught in its wake. 

    * Ultimate Ability – Energy Blockade: Lay down a turret with a massive energy shield. (think a much larger Lifeline barrier) that slowly moves in the direction placed. It cannot be climbed or shot through (from either end). It continues until the drone hits an object or is shot for 50 damage.

    Joshua asks, “Can we talk about the gold standard of battle royale games? I see so many apex legends “fans” upset about no bug fixes, no content, no community feedback based-progress. But i don’t see any other games doing it better at all. What is this supposed standard that everyone is judging apex against?”

    NIKOLAS – The Butcher – Support

    Nikolas comes from a long line of high end chefs. His father, grandfather and all his aunts tried to show him the nuances of cooking, but Nikolas seemed to only be fascinated by the butchering of animals. Soon this became an obsession and he now has a bloodthirsty desire to butcher animals and feed them to the legends of the Apex Games. He will feed them at any cost…and if there are no animals…well…



    * Passive Ability – Fresh Meat: When NIKOLAS kills an enemy (killed not downed) chunks of meat are spawned. These chunks heal HP of NIKOLAS and his squad when picked up. They vary from 5hp healed to 30hp healed and 1 meat chunk to 5 dropped.

    Listener Questions (Tweet Us or Email Hello@OKBeast.com):

    Bryan Lords writes in “what’s you updated fav character? I started getting into octane which I didn’t think would happen. What sort of striking distance to you try to maintain?  being a less skilled player I have to play a bit up close and tight and hope to get the drop on people. I have to avoid distance/g7/charge rifle gameplay. “”

     

    Bobby Muldoon asks, “Season 3’s meta, to me, was largely based on sniping. I really loved this because I am not that great in close combat, but was able to drastically increase my average damage and kills by focusing on ranged combat. I believe they’ll aim to change up the meta in season 4, so what are your expectations?”

    News:

    Respawn will punish players who dashboard out of ranked Apex games

    Champion Chat – Holo-Day Bash Review:

    Limited Time Mode – Winter Express

    Three squads compete to capture the World’s Edge train, decked out in its holiday best, as it moves from station to station. For Winter Express, the path of the train is fixed to a smaller radius in order to ensure you’re never too far from all the action.

    In Winter Express, each Legend comes with a custom, pre-determined load-out – no looting necessary here. Want to try something different? Eliminated players will respawn every round and can select different Legends to play mid-match. Explore different squad comps based on what your opponents are doing to hold the capture point. First to three captures wins!

    Load-outs rotate daily, so log in often and play new combinations.

    Listener Questions (Tweet Us or Email Hello@OKBeast.com):

    Josh Gallegos (@videogamebard) writes in,

    “Much has changed with Apex Legends as Season 3 begins to twilight, but most importantly is the game’s incredibly rapid rise in popularity. I recently heard a report from the Giant Bomb editors that Fortnite has in fact begun a decline in popularity over the last few months, whereas Apex Legends has in fact grown immensely, and even looks to be gaining on Fortnite. Such a shift will surely change Respawn’s own focuses, and perhaps even stranglehold any plans they may have had for future games (like Titanfall 3, though certainly Star Wars Jedi is still coming).

    My question is, do you think Respawn will capitalize on the popularity and increase the content and modes in Apex going into 2020? And would you prefer they do that instead of focus on potential new games, like a Titanfall 3?”

    Isaiah (@emulizer2) asks,

    “What weapons from Titanfall 2 do you all think should be brought over to Apex that have yet to be brought over?”
