With Season 6 now live across all platforms, players are cracking the code of Apex Legends to find what secrets about the future of the game are being kept from players.

One legend that has popped up in the past is the mysterious character 'Valk' first appearing back in October 2020.

This new legend has yet to be seen since and will have to wait another full season before potentially arriving as Season 6 was occupied by Rampart.

So who is Valk? Here's everything we know about her.

It's believed that the VTOL Jets are inspired by the Hover and VTOL Hover abilities in Titanfall 2, which allow Pilots and Titans to hover in the air, respectively.

An older datamining attempt uncovered an ability called Afterburners which, after the initial drop, allowed Valk and her team to skydive faster.

Valk Release Date

It's possible Valk may release as part of Apex Legends Season 9, if a new tease in the latest Apex Legends trailer is anything to go by.

Valk Skins

Respawn has revealed the Valkyrie skins, including the Legendary skins.
