Pathfinder is the picture of optimism, despite his circumstances. A MRVN (Mobile Robotic Versatile eNtity) modified to specialize in location scouting and surveying, he booted up decades ago in an abandoned laboratory with no idea who created him or why. With only his MRVN designation to hint at his identity, Pathfinder set off in search of his creator.
Pathfinder has learned much in his travels since then (like how to make a mean Eastern Leviathan Stew) but hasn't come any closer to finding his creator. Still, he's never given up hope, and has joined the Apex Games to gain a following—and hopefully draw the attention of his maker. In the meantime, he remains enthusiastic and helpful, always ready to make new friends (then shoot them).
Throws a grappling hook that will attach to the first solid object it hits and pull you towards it at a rapid speed.
The grappling hook can also attach to players, pulling the two of you together.
For more effective grappling, aim where you want to swing. Building momentum and swinging where you want to go. If thrown at an object while maintaining momentum in a different direction, you will swing while being pulled towards the object, allowing for tactical repositioning.
While being an extremely useful tool to reach high positions or just move faster on the map, it can also be used for flanking and evading opponents, which can often turn fights in your favor.
Keep in mind that both you and your grabbed opponent can keep shooting while the hook is in progress.
Creates a zipline between your current location and a target location, which you, your teammates, and enemies can use to move quickly between both points.
The zipline is very useful for getting to usually unreachable locations, escaping an unwinnable fight or just progress quickly on the map (to escape the ring, for example). Ziplines can be deployed to most surfaces, however certain structures (frame of the map) may not be used. You cannot use them to reach "out of the map" zones.
In an emergency, you can interrupt the use of a zipline by selecting any other item (weapons / healing) or ability (Grappling Hook).
Remember foes can use them too, don't get cornered or ambushed by your own zipline!
You can also use this ability to set up an ambush for an enemy squad after your escape, very quickly changing the tables dramatically
