Ballistics abilities in Apex Legends

According to leakers, these are Ballistics’ abilities. While his abilities can change at any point until his release in 2023, their current state should give you a rough idea of how Ballistic works as a character.

Passive: Weapon Sling

Unlike other characters who are limited to two weapons, Ballistic can carry a third weapon and use it whenever he wants. The downside to this third weapon is that you can’t equip any attachments to it.

Tactical: Smart Bullet

Ballistic will fire a projectile that debuffs any enemy that it hits and holding it down will allow you to lock on to a target. The enemy that got hit by his projectile will suffer from their weapons starting to overheat as they shoot. Overheated weapons will deal damage to the enemy.

Ultimate: Weapon Enhancer

When his ultimate is activated, any teammates who are nearby will gain various buffs: faster reload speeds, increased unarmed movement speed, and their cap for their ammo being removed meaning they can store as much ammo as they like. In addition, Ballistics’ third weapon gets buffed and it will be automatically upgraded to its gold version.
