About Octane in Apex Legends Mobile
Octane used to entertain himself by performing death-defying stunts. One day, he had decided to set a course record for a nearby Gauntlet by launching himself across the finish line, using a grenade. As he lay in triage hours later, the doctors informed him that the damage done to his legs meant his stunt days were over.
Octane wasn’t happy about this, turned to Ajay Che, his old friend, for help. He had guilted her into forging an order, to replace his legs with bionic ones. After the successful operation, Octane decided to go for something very big, the ultimate Adrenaline Rush, the Apex Games.
Octane is a high-speed daredevil, which means that his role and abilities are completely based on faster movement. In this Apex Legends Mobile guide, we will look at the abilities of Octane in detail.
Passive Ability – Swift Mend
The Swift Mend is very simple to understand and beneficial at the same time. This ability helps Octane to regenerate his health by 1 HP per second. This is applicable when one is not in the middle of combat for at least 9 seconds, after which his health starts regenerating. This Passive Ability is extremely useful for Octane more than any other Legend, given the drawback of his Tactical Ability.
Tactical Ability – Stim
The Stim is a unique ability that lets Octane move faster by 30%, at the cost of his health. The players will lose 20 HP when the Tactical Ability is activated. This does not put Octane at a major disadvantage, since he can regenerate the lost health using his Passive Ability. But, when we talk about its advantages, it’s enormous.
The cooldown for this Ability is just two seconds. Therefore, players can keep using it, in order to, run away from their enemies. What many players may not know, is the fact that this ability will help Octane to move 15% faster, apart from the 30% already boosted, when running without holding any weapon. Players must note that a player cannot kill himself using stim, as this ability works only till the health goes down to 1 HP, after which the player has to heal himself in order to rock this ability again.
With Octane consisting of a number of advantages, it’s very understandable as to why he is being used by a number of players.
Ultimate Ability – Jump Pad
The best method to rotate around the map in Apex Legends Mobile is when Jump Pad helps Octane and his teammates rotate a lot quicker than running. On activating the Ultimate Ability, players must drop the jump pad on any favorable area, and run towards it. On reaching right above the pad, it launches the player high in the air.
Once the player is launched to the air, he will be able to use a technique named Double Jump, which lets the player jump even higher, thus giving more travel distance. To do this, players have to click on the Jump button, while in the air. This technique also allows the player to move towards a specific direction before the second jump, mid-air.
The player has to launch from the jump pad and then turn towards the direction needed to go. They must click on the Jump button as soon as the player turns towards that specific direction. By doing so, the player will move in the direction towards the side where he turned.
