Apex Legends Mobile – Ash Legend Guide
Apex Legends Mobile Season 3: Champions went live last week, launching a new one overcome the battle and Seasonal shopalong with a lot Limited time event. But the star of the season is of course Ash: a morphing girl who first appeared in Titanfall 2, then joined the Apex Games in Season 11 before moving into the mobile realm.
You might think you know this lore inside and out – especially if you’ve played Titanfall 2 or Apex Legends – but playing Ash in Apex Legends Mobile vs. play her on console or PC These are two very different experiences. This is partly due to her abilities, which have had to be tweaked a bit to fit the needs of the mobile game. But there are other factors when it comes to tailoring your gameplay strategy specifically to suit Ash on mobile. Follow this guide to get the scoop on the malicious mastermind and learn how to use her mobile-specific perks to your advantage.
Call sign: Ash
First and last name: Ashleigh Reid
Formerly a human scientist and assistant to outstanding people Dr. Mary Somers (AKA Horizon), Dr. Reid is known for his work on branthium, a rare but powerful fuel source that can only be obtained from outer space (black holes are also involved–It’s so complicated). Branthium was used for the purpose of saving the Outlands from a deadly energy crisis. But unbeknownst to her colleagues, Dr. Reid’s participation in the research (known as Project Iris) was a ruse. After faking an accident that sent her mentor into a black hole, Dr Reid later rejected her other colleagues (including Pathfinder) and tried to reroute brandhium shipments elsewhere for unknown reasons.
She finally faileddie in the process before being bring back “life” like a simulacrum. After her memories are restored, her personality splits into two halves: the ruthless, bloodthirsty Ash and the horrifying remnant of her human consciousness, Leigh. Now, she has joined the Apex Games in an effort to destroy all remnants of the human faction so that she can take full control and destroy Leigh – who she considers a kind of person. personality defect or weakness– good. Meanwhile, Leigh is desperately trying to cross the surface and regain control of her body before it’s too late.
Like the other mobile game adaptations, Ash’s three main abilities are technically the same as on console and PC. But they work slightly differently in Apex Legends Mobile. Ash’s abilities are as follows:
Passive: Mark for death
Ash’s map shows the locations of recent death boxes and marks surviving attackers. Unlike the console and PC versions of the game, Ash will automatically ping any surviving enemies, so you don’t have to toss your Data Knife into the death box after manually killing them.
Strategy: Arc Snare
Ash throws a spinning trap that deals damage and ties the first enemy that gets too close.
Final: Phase Breach
Ashes tears open a one-way portal to a targeted location.
The perks are unique to Apex Legends Mobile, and they’re a great way to tailor each legend’s abilities to fit your individual playstyle. As you continue to play Ash and progress through her skill tree, you’ll unlock nine perks that can be equipped to further power Ash’s arsenal. Privileges are of three types: Standard Privileges. Finisher Privilege and Ability Privilege. The Standard Perks are indicated by triangular blue icons, while the icons for the Finisher and Ability Privilege are purple and red, respectively. You can only have one of each type of privilege equipped per load
Ash has the following perks:
- The spoils of war: Each death box symbol that appears on the map has the same color as the highest level looted item inside it.
- Revealing the red hand: The first time an enemy uses the scanned dead box, their location will be pinged.
- Advanced Hunting: After three deadbox interactions, your Data Dao will reveal more information. After six hours, you’ll periodically see the killer’s group on your map (assuming they’re still alive).
- Battle adaptation: Using a finishing move will add 100 points to your EVO Shoild.
- Deadly time: Using the finishing move reduces Ultimate’s cooldown by 30%
- Register Mag: Using an ending move will reload your active weapon and increase the reload speed for eight seconds.
- Durable Traps: Arc Snare persists after being thrown, but can be destroyed by enemies.
- Accuracy of instigator: You can adjust Ash’s Arc Snare’s throw trajectory, but its speed is reduced.
- Ball step: Phase Breach can be reactivated within seven seconds of first cast, but its distance is halved.
Learn to aim your Arc Snare. Throwing Ash’s Arc Scare is similar to throwing a grenade, but with a few differences. When aiming, you’ll see a line showing the trajectory the Arc Snare will take when you throw it, along with a blue dome showing the area that will be affected when it lands. But this blue dome can be a bit misleading, and you may notice enemies trying to step around the Arc Snare despite being within its range.
For this reason, you should increase your Shooting range and practice bombing to better understand when you can and cannot hit enemies with Arc Snare. The good news is that, compared to consoles and PCs, the Arc Snare of mobile games tends to stick to the ground better instead of dashing away like some kind of useless, useless frisbee.
Consider before you take the leap. Ash’s Phase Break is extremely powerful, but it’s easy to jump right into an ambush if you’re not careful. If you’re used to rewinding Wraith’s portals, remember that when Ash comes to life, there’s no going back. Whether you’re playing as Ash or simply interacting with one of her tear-jerks, remember this is a one-way trip. Make sure you know what awaits you on the other side.
Cheer! freshen up. Perks are extremely important in Apex Mobile, but it’s easy to forget to equip them. Make sure you top up your load as quickly as possible so you can compete with your enemies on an even playing field.
The more you play Ash, the more Perks you can unlock. Since Perks are so important to mobile gameplay, we’ve detailed our favorite downloads below.
Standard Perks: Red Hand Reveal is our favorite Standard Skill, as it’s great for determining enemy action when you’re looking for a skirmish. It effectively turns Ash into a lean and meaningful ping machine. (Okay, to be fair, she’s skinny and mean from the start.) That’s great for tracking you, too – if an enemy Bloodhound is tracking you and interacting with any death boxes. for which you are responsible, you will know it immediately and avoid letting your guard down.
Perk Skill: Shadow Step great for maneuverability, but the reduced distance means it’s hard to get far enough to get out of combat. However, being able to dodge damage every seven seconds instead of every 120 seconds is an amazing perk that allows Ash to glide back and forth between gunfights. It also makes Phase Breach’s one-way travel a little less claustrophobic, as you can quickly turn around wherever you go.
Finisher Perk: Battle Adaptation almost always the best perk to go with because ending moves are a lot easier to do in the mobile version of Apex Legends, but in Ash’s case, Deadly Momentum is one of those moments. close by. Obviously, cutting down on Phase Breach’s cooldown is beneficial, but combining Deadly Momentum with Shadow Step means that Ash’s Phase Breach ability is available almost any time you need it. If you don’t use Shadow Step as your Skill, use Battle Adaptation to get the free EVO Shield boost it will grant you. But if you have a serious need for speed, combine Deadly Momentum with Shadow Step and get ready to run around Wraith and Octane.
Of course, if you find another set of Perks that suits you better, you should stick with it. That’s the beauty of Apex Mobile’s Perk system: It lets you play the game by your own rules.
