Valkyrie in Apex Legends
Valkyrie is the newest addition to the Apex Legend’s roaster and her abilities are perfect for both recon, tactical and just getting to the zone. This article intends to talk and explain in detail about her abilities and how you can use them in your game.
Recon – This ability helps her to survey beacons to find out the next circle’s location.
VTOL Jets– This ability enables her jetpack and players can activate it by pressing Space while in mid-air.
Missile Swarm – This ability launches a series of tactile mini-rockets that inflicts damage and disorients enemies in its contact.
Skyward Dive – This is her ultimate which prepares for a launch when pressed once. During that time, fellow teammates can join her launch by interacting with her. This engages her into a verticle ascend, similar to a balloon launch, and then Valkyrie can skydive her way through.
The ultimate use of her Abilities
One of the most interesting thing about Valkyrie’s abilities is that her skill to detect enemies. This all happens in mid-air after the dropship launch but helps to pinpoint the enemy team’s launch. Most of the time being careless about opponents costs a match early, this should help you avoid that.
The Missile Swarm, on the other hand, deploys a set of mini-grenades in a small area. Players can select the area of deployment and it is short to mid-range navigated. This should help you draw out enemies that are in cover, inflicting damage and concussion which should help your teammates that may push.
Her ultimate is something that will be very helpful in various cases in Apex Legends. For example, if you had a bad landing and there’s no decent loot anywhere while multiple enemies hunt you down for easy kills, you can just vent to a different location with your entire squad.
