Apex Legends’ developer Respawn entertainment has made one thing very clear this season: The game’s plot is taking center stage. Season 18 kicked off in an entirely unprecedented manner, with no new legend being added. This also happened in Season 16, but this time around, there was a twist: Players weren’t gaining access to a new character, they were gaining access to Revenant, an old character who recently developed a brand-new set of abilities–and a brand-new look.

This gave Respawn the perfect opportunity to create Kill Code, a new animated series that’s separate from Stories From The Outlands (which typically deals with a legend’s past), and thus finally gives players a chance to catch a glimpse of what it’s like to live on a dropship with a bunch of deadly bloodsport participants, two of whom are literal murder robots. When we last left off in Kill Code: Part 2, we saw Revenant attempting to strangle Crypto, mistakenly thinking Crypto was the one behind the odd glitches he was experiencing. Of course, it turned out that Revenant’s transformation was actually the result of the manipulative machinations of one Torres “Duardo” Silva, Octane’s grandfather.

Kill Code: Part 3 sees the legends coming together for the first time in a long while. After discovering where Duardo has run off to with Revenant’s source code (which, for some reason, is inside a Futurama-esque head in a jar), Crypto, Loba, Valkyrie, Lifeline, Mad Maggie, and Revenant himself agree to infiltrate the facility on Malta to try and retrieve Revenant’s source code. Despite their differences, they all agree that Revenant may be dangerous by nature, but he is far more dangerous when he’s being controlled by someone else. Unfortunately, Lifeline is spotted and identified almost immediately after the group enters the facility, resulting in the building entering lockdown and security forces swarming the area.
