In Apex Legends Mobile, the developers added a new Legend named Fade. Also known as Ignacio Huamani, Fade can use his special suit to manipulate time.

His passive, Slipstream, gives Fade a short movement speed boost at the end of a slide. While this is a pretty good ability, there’s an internal cooldown, so you cannot abuse this to gain a massive advantage over your opponents.

Fade’s tactical ability is called Flashback. This is interesting because Fade uses his suit to phase him back to a previous location through the void. What’s more, Fade can leave the void at any time by pressing his Flashback tactical again.

Phase Chamber is Fade’s ultimate ability. When used, he throws an activator core from his suit, resulting in an explosion. Everyone caught in the blast radius, including allies and Fade himself, will be phased, making them unable to deal or receive damage. 

In addition to the new Legend, new features have been added to Apex Legends Mobile. One of the most notable is Team Fill, which automatically brings new players to fill the team if another player leaves prematurely. This is only available in Team Deathmatch.
