The legend-specific Abilities you can use have three types: Passive, Tactical and Ultimate. These abilities allow for different playstyles for each legend and may alter the course of the game if used properly.

Passive abilities[edit | edit source]

These abilities don't have cooldowns and are always active or able to be used.

Ultimate abilities[edit | edit source]

These abilities are generally the most powerful in a Legend's Arsenals and so have slower cooldowns. These can be activated by pressing the Z button on PC's, the LB and RB buttons on Xbox, and the L2 and R2 buttons on the PlayStation 4. They can be charged by using Ultimate Accelerant.svg Ultimate Accelerants to speed up the process (in Wattson's case, fully charge it) or instantly with any legend when using a Charge Tower.
