Only four of the five Apex Legends Season 16 classes are free for new players

Apex Legends Season 16 is changing the way character classes work. Starting with Season 16, playable Legends will be divided into five different classes, each with their own perks. If you’re a new player, however, you’ll only have access to four of the five classes from the start. You will have to buy the Controller.

The five new classes are Assault, Recon, Skirmisher, Support and Controller. There are 23 playable Legends in Apex Legends, but new accounts only start with six: Wraith, Pathfinder, Bloodhound, Gibraltar, Bangalore, and Lifeline. Wraith and Pathfinder are Skirmishers, Bloodhound is Recon, Bangalore is Assault, and Gibraltar and Lifeline are Support. This means that if you want to play games like a controller, you’ll have to buy one.
