It hasn’t been that long since season eleventh of Apex Legends titled “Escape” came out. To be more precise, it was launched on November 2, 2021, and will conclude on February 8, 2022. Although it’s still ongoing, fans are ecstatic and extremely looking forward to the next instalment of Apex Legends which is the twelfth season called “Defiance”.
Needless to say, Respawn has been teasing about who the succeeding legend will be and it appears like gamers assumptions were right on point as Mad Maggie is confirmed and heads her way into the Apex world.
Mad Maggie is an old companion turned foe of Fuse’s as both of them share the same history on Salvo. They were both raised in Salvo and later Maggie whose actual name is Margaret Kohere came to serve as a ferocious defender all for Salvo’s freedom while Fuse chose to join the Apex Games, the two eventually had a fallout. Out of vengeance, Maggie blasted off one of Fuse’s arms and a portion of King’s Canyon.
Maggie is more or less described as “a cutthroat punk-rock warlord and the Outlands’ meanest mad-lass.” However, her specific equipment is yet to be disclosed. Let’s find out what the upcoming Apex Legends season 12 Defiance has in store for us.
