Gibraltar is one of the free-to-play characters in Apex Legends.


Gibraltar is a gentle giant with a wild side. The son of two SARAS (Search and Rescue Association of Solace) volunteers, he has always been skilled at getting others out of dangerous situations that are common in the Outlands. However, he only began to understand the value of protecting others when he and his boyfriend stole his father's motorcycle, took it on a joyride, and got trapped by a deadly mudslide. His parents saved them, and his father lost an arm in the process. Gibraltar has never forgotten that sacrifice and has devoted his life to helping those in need.

The Apex Games didn't change that, but they changed what it meant. Many of Gibraltar's friends and colleagues have competed in the Games for extra money, fame, and glory over the years, and some never came home. Gibraltar joined to keep them safe and, for the first time, his skills as a rescuer and his rebellious nature worked together. He's now become an icon in the Apex Games, putting himself in the line of fire to protect his squad and send his opponents running for cover.

Personal life

Dedicated his life to helping others after his parents rescued him and his boyfriend from a mudslide while the couple was out joyriding on his father's stolen motorcycle.

Type Passive
Description Aiming down sights deploys a gun shield that blocks incoming fire.

While aiming, Gibraltar will have an energy shield in front of him with? health that protects him from incoming fire but still allows him to shoot out. The shield can be disabled by pressing {{#vardefine:console|}}{{#vardefine:key|{{{2}}}}}{{#vardefine:keyboard|h}}[[File:undefined {{#var:key}}.png|20px|Controls]]{{#var:keyboard}} while aiming.

  • The shield can sometimes make it easier to spot Gibraltar while he is hiding, so it may be worth disabling temporarily if you're pretty sure you're otherwise hidden.
