Every Apex Legends Ultimate and Tactical ability cooldown
Knowing your character’s Ultimate and Tactical ability cooldowns in Apex Legends can be useful, and we’ve got a complete breakdown for you.
If you’re trying out a new character for the first time in Apex Legends then you should know what abilities they have and how long it takes for them to recharge, so we’ve listed every Legend’s Ultimate and Tactical ability cooldowns.
You’ll be able to choose from a wide selection of unique characters when jumping into a game of Apex Legends. All of them come with some cool Tactical and Ultimate abilities that you can use to dish out some serious pain, or to get yourself out of a sticky situation.
Respawn gave each ability a cooldown timer to prevent players from spamming it constantly. So, if you want to understand how each Legends’ kit works, we’ve gone over every Ultimate and Tactical ability’s cooldown timer below.
All Apex Legends Tactical ability cooldowns
You’ll use Tactical abilities quite often in a match since they charge faster than the Legend’s Ultimate ability. In some cases, a Legend’s Tactical ability can store multiple charges, but you’ll still want to avoid using them all up at once.
Here’s a breakdown of every Legends’ Tactical ability cooldowns:
|Bangalore||Smoke Launcher||33s (holds 2 charges)|
|Bloodhound||Eye of the Allfather||25s|
|Caustic||Nox Gas Trap||25s (holds 3 charges)|
|Crypto||Surveillance Drone||40s (once destroyed)|
|Gibraltar||Dome of Protection||30s|
|Lifeline||D.O.C. Heal Drone||45s|
|Loba||Burglar’s Best Friend||29s|
|Rampart||Amped Cover||20s (holds 3 charges)|
|Wattson||Perimeter Security||30s (holds 4 charges)|
|Wraith||Into the Void||25s|
It’s also possible for you to boost the speed at which your Legend’s Tactical abilities will recharge by 20% by equipping the Gold Helmet. You’ll be able to better plan out when and how often you should use them in the midst of combat if you know the time they take to recharge.
Apex Legends Ultimate ability cooldowns
While Tactical abilities are what you’ll be using most often during an Apex Legends match, you’ll find Ultimate abilities handy for getting you out of a tight spot. These are the most effective tool at a Legend’s disposal, and can take a while to charge up.
Here’s a breakdown of each Legends’ Ultimate ability cooldown:
|Bloodhound||Beast of the Hunt||180s|
|Caustic||Nox Gas Grenade||120s|
|Loba||Black Market Boutique||90s|
|Mirage||Life of the Party||60s|
|Rampart||Emplaced Minigun “Sheila”||120s|
Your Legend’s Ultimate ability can be the only thing that pushes your squad towards victory, so make sure you have you have it charged and ready in battle. You must only use it when the perfect opportunity presents itself.

If you happen to come across an Ultimate Accelerant, then you can gain an instant 20% charge to that ability. Just like with your Tactical abilities, you can speed up the rate at which your Ultimate will charge with the help of a Gold Helmet.
Respawn have brought a few changes to these abilities in the latest update, which you can read more about in our Apex Legends Season 8 buffs and nerfs guide. Keep these cooldown timers in mind the next time you’re planning a battle strategy.
