Apex Legends Season 5: Ash Titanfall Character Teased, Who Are They, Everything We Know So Far

Ben Sledge

Apex Legends is obviously set in the Titanfall universe, but a new character may tie the two together more than ever before.

Before we go any further: there are MAJOR spoilers ahead for the Titanfall series, Apex Legends, and especially the Broken Ghost Season Quest.

However, for those of you who want to be in the know, it looks like a huge Titanfall character could debut in Apex Legends.

First, we recommend playing through the Broken Ghost Season Quest until Quest Seven, and then a lot of this will make more sense.

Ash Could Be The Next Legend To Come To The Apex Games

If you complete all of the Lost Treasure Event quests you'll have collected all of the artifact pieces, which create the head of Ash from Titanfall 2.

Finishing the last quest will unlock a new mission.

In this you have to enter a bunker, once you get to the bottom you'll find a headless, damaged Ash.

The player replaces her head and she will boot back up, welcoming you to Olympus.

It's likely Ash will be the next legend and players will be fighting it out in Olympus!

The Idcoms Frame is the latest Artifact to be collected via the Season Quest.

It is a face mask-type structure that attaches to the front of the Simulacrum head we've been building over the season.

However, the newest piece could hold a huge clue to the puzzle of who - yes, who - the broken Ghost is.

 

The Devil Is In The Detail

Dataminer shrugtal was looking very closely at the Idcoms Frame when they noticed some lettering on the side.

The word "ASH" is hard to make out at first, but clearly visible when you know what you're looking for.

But who is Ash, and what do they have to do with Apex Legends?

 

Who Is Ash?

Ash Titanfall Apex Legends Broken Ghost

Ash is one of the antagonists - or minibosses - in Titanfall 2 (we told you there would be spoilers).

She pilots both Ronin-class and Reaper-class Titans as one of the Apex Predators, a lieutenant to big bad Blisk - who is also the mastermind behind the Apex Games.

However, after Ash's "death" at the hands of Jack Cooper and BT-7274, a company called Vinson Dynamics would rebuild her as another Simulacrum, transferring her consciousness to another robot body.

Sound familiar?

 

What Does This Mean For Apex Legends?

Obviously, the first parallel is with everyone's favourite murder-robot, Revenant.

But that doesn't explain why Loba is so intent on rebuilding Ash's head. It seems clear, however, that Ash is the Broken Ghost.

Loba could be intent on repairing Ash and unleashing her on Revenant in a Sim v Sim battle. But it seems equally likely that Loba could want to study Ash's decapitated head to understand how to kill Revenant herself.

There are other potential connections, for instance, Ash's legs look similar to Octane's, and her memory loss again links to Revenant when he was an assassin.

Fans have theorised for months that Ash was put into a human body after her last Simulacrum body was destroyed and that this body was Wraith - it would explain her memory loss, and why the two have the same ability.

We'll have to complete the Season Quest to find out what Ash's role will be in Apex Legends, but it certainly seems like she, and Titan manufacturers Vinson Dynamics, will have a key role in the future of the battle royale.
