“The pathfinder is useless!” Okay let me change your mind. I’m Brandon (aka D4Dedication) and today I’m going to quickly tell you why the pathfinder could quite possibly be one of the best tactical,  offensive legends in the game.

Tactical Ability: Grappling Hook
Grapple to get to out-of-reach places quickly.

Pathfinder has a very unique tactical ability called the Grappling Hook that he can use every 15 seconds to get in and out of different situations. The really cool thing about his grappling hook is that it plays and feels much like Spider Man’s web when he swings. This lets you get great momentum to rush injured enemies, move to the high ground or just help you get to the next zone. For someone who like to play aggressive, I would give him a shot.

Passive Ability: Insider Knowledge
Scan a survey beacon to reveal the ring’s next location.

His Passive Ability, Insider Knowledge, allows you to interact with different survey beacons around the map to reveal the rings next location. This ability actually holds a lot of value because the plays that you and your squad make can be predetermined knowing where the next zone will be. You would actually find this ability pretty handy in different situations close to the end game where things really matter.

Ultimate Ability: Zipline Gun
Create a zipline for everyone to use.

Finally his ultimate ability, Zipline Gun, lets you launch a zipline far distances for you and your team to then use. When you talk about an aggressive player you think about someone who is constantly moving forward with momentum and seeking enemies to fight. That is exactly what Pathfinders ultimate ability permits you to do. You can easily rotate in so many different creative ways or flank the enemy to get the drop on them. This ability is just great. Also note that this is useful for when the storm sneaks up on you to make an easy escape.

All in all Pathfinder is definitely at the top of my list for a Legend to try out if you haven’t already. His inimitable abilities gives you the movement factor that none of the other legends in the game have. I hope you enjoyed this rundown on Pathfinder in Apex Legends!
