Apex Legends Has A Cute Overwatch Tribute

Like Overwatch, Apex Legends, the new hero-based battle royale game from the creators of Titanfall, contains a playable character who’s a bipedal robot with a heart of gold. He’s also got a bird friend, although I’m not sure how friendly they are.

Unlike Overwatch’s Bastion, Apex’s Pathfinder is a support instead of a living turret. He also has a bird. Reddit user Arzamar discovered that Apex Legends has an in-game banner pose that’s strikingly similar to Bastion’s bird-based victory poses in Overwatch. At least, initially.

In Overwatch, avian pal Ganymede gently lands on a patiently waiting Bastion. In Apex, Pathfinder waits with his arm outstretched, only for a bird to savagely claw at him until he flees into the camera.

But I guess it makes sense. In a battle royale, it’s every person (and robot and bird) for themselves.


    Don't you mean a ripped menu?

    The bird is in a few different legend's pages such as MIrage.

    I swear to God that could be cliffy b with that stack of cash in front of him in that taboola ad above
