One day, Octavio Silva was bored. In fact, he was bored most days. Heir to the preoccupied CEOs of Silva Pharmaceuticals and wanting for nothing in life, he entertained himself by performing death-defying stunts and posting holovids of them for his fans to gawk over. So, this day, he decided to set the 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 daredevil days were over. That didn’t sit well with Octavio, who turned to an old friend for help: Ajay Che, who he guilted into forging an order to replace his legs with bionic ones. Suddenly able to repair his limbs at a moment’s notice, Octavio decided petty online stunts weren’t enough: the ultimate adrenaline rush, the Apex Games, was calling. Now, he’s going to become an Apex Champion doing the most incredible, death-defying moves anyone’s ever seen. Maybe in the arena, he won’t be so bored.

Type Tactical
Description Move 30% faster for six seconds. Costs health to use.

Move 30% faster for 6 seconds. Costs 10 health to use. While active, Octane is affected less by attacks that cause slowdown. 2 second recharge.

You cannot bring yourself below 0 health. It is not possible to kill yourself, but you are easier to kill. You may want to take care using this ability in fights - do not use it too much as you will weaken yourself substantially for enemies to pick you off.

It is easy to lose track of your health. Avoid running into new areas with only a sliver of health.

Swift Mend
