Bangalore is one of the legends in Apex Legends.


Born into a military family where she, her parents, and her four older brothers all served in the IMC Armed Forces, 40138416 callsign Bangalore has been an exceptional soldier since she was young. She was top of her class at the IMC Military Academy and the only cadet who could take apart a Peacekeeper, equip it with a Precision Choke hop-up, and put it back together in under twenty seconds – blindfolded.

Three years ago, Anita and her brother Jackson were ordered to retrieve a mercenary fleet from the Outlands to aid in the IMC's fight against the Militia. However, their unit lost contact with IMC HQ and were ambushed on arrival. The squad scattered, but Jackson stayed behind to give his sister time to escape. Alone and with no way home, Anita put her training, extensive weapon knowledge, and competitive spirit to work by joining the Apex Games. Now, she fights to raise money for passage back to the IMC home base, where she hopes to reunite with what remains of her family.


Smoke Launcher[]

File:Smoke Launcher.png Smoke Launcher
Type Tactical
Cooldown 33 seconds
Description Fire a high-velocity smoke canister that explodes into a smoke wall on impact.

  • Bangalore has a max of two charges to shoot her Smoke launcher. Each charge launches a smoke canister that burst upon impact into smaller cluster smoke grenades that produce a thick cloud of smoke in an large zone. It can also be used to hit an enemy for about 10 damage.

  • Its range is quite moderate, about the same as a grenade
  • The Smoke Launcher can be used both offensively and defensively; to ambush an unsuspecting squad by removing their ability to see you and respond, or as a weapon of escape to obscure yourself and your team from enemies. Bangalore can also use the smoke canister while she is currently using a consumable item such as a Medkit or Shield Battery, as both only require one hand. Use this to your advantage to cover yourself while you heal.

  • Double Time[]

    Type Passive
    Cooldown N/A
    Description Taking fire while sprinting makes you move faster for a brief time.

    Being fired upon by enemies triggers Bangalore to pick up the pace and run with increased speed.

    • Bangalore's passive is a reactionary one that responds to enemies engaging you. Utilize the short term speed boost whenever you can either by running for cover or returning fire with the increased speed as it makes you a difficult target to hit.

    Rolling Thunder[]

    Type Ultimate
    Charge time 270 seconds
    Description Call in an artillery strike that slowly creeps across the landscape.

    • Bangalore's Rolling Thunder is a large scale area of effect explosive ability. It has a short windup to call down, which then drops around 20 small missiles, littering the area before exploding after a few seconds.

  • Rolling Thunder should be best saved for large team engagements or ambushes, or ultimately to cover your team while escaping. It can catch an unsuspecting enemy team off guard and have them running for cover.
  • This ultimate ability isn't independently powerful enough to be fully effective on its own, so it is strongly recommended to chase the enemy down as they get bombarded. However be careful, Rolling Thunder will hurt you and your teammates and can kill any knocked down teammates in its area.
