Apex Legends fans are eager to learn what Seer's abilities will be when he becomes available in Season 10: Emergence.

So far, precious little data is available about Seer's utility in the actual game. Much of his lore has been revealed, including his name—Obi Edolasim—origin story of being raised in the Arenas, and even the Nigerian ethnic group he's a part of—the Igbo. We've been able to get a first look at his appearance via the Outlands short "Metamorphosis" as well as his official splash art and character model on the Season 10 webpage.

The biggest question left unanswered is, simply: "What does he do?"

Apex Legends Seer Abilities: Top Theories

Three ability icons have already been released for Seer ahead of his debut in Apex Legends. Originally, several outlets reported that Seer is a rebrand of the rumored legend, Pariah, but we don't believe that to be the case. Instead, the top theories surrounding the legend are coming directly from recently uncovered code.

According to credible Apex Legends leaker, @Shrugtal, Seer's passive ability corresponds to the icon of the eye surrounded by what could be his microdrones. In a video published to his YouTube channel, he drew a comparison to Bloodhound's icon and suggested that the two abilities may be similar. Could Seer's passive allow him to track legends in the field—and how? Several fans such as YouTuber Thordan Smash have their own ideas. Some allege he'll be able to listen for heartbeats while others instead think he'll be able to see health bars or armor type.

His tactical ability could be an area of effect based mechanic that has a set of color entries for whether he is in or out of range of a target or area. Shrugtal believes this has to do with the crosshair when highlighting an opponent. Regardless, it is most likely a ranged ability.

Finally, his ultimate icon appears to be his center-chest drone compartment opening—as seen in both his short and in his model's appearance on the webpage. It's unknown whether this will be an offensive or defensive ability. However, due to the rumors surrounding the rest of his kit, most fans believe he'll be able to blind other legends with the drones. After all, his theme is focused on sight and bright lights such as the drones and the moth's flame.

DBLTAP cannot confirm any of the theories listed above. Additionally, these abilities have yet to be assigned names. According to Respawn Entertainment, players will be able to learn more about Seer from the EA Play live event on Thursday, July 22.
