Apex Legends released Valkyrie as the new character addition of season 9. Nicknamed Winged Avenger, they listed the character under the recon category. Valkyrie is a flying legend with a passive ability to use jetpacks to cover a short distance. This is quite helpful during combat, as it allows the character to reset during the fight.

Apart from that, Valkyrie’s main ability is to take the team from one place to another, as she can instantly shoot up in the sky. Lastly, she also uses a missile swarm, tactically wrecking enemies with a sudden attack of missiles.
