Octane (Real Name: Octavio Silva) is one of the playable legends in Apex Legends. He was introduced in the Season 1 Battle Pass and can be unlocked by using digital currency, with his cost being either 12,000 Legend Tokens or 750 Apex Coins.


One day, Octavio Silva was bored. In fact, he was bored most days. Heir to the preoccupied CEOs of Silva Pharmaceuticals and wanting for nothing in life, he entertained himself by performing death-defying stunts and posting holovids of them for his fans to gawk over. So, this day, he decided to set the course record for a nearby Gauntlet by launching himself across the finish line – using a grenade. As he lay in triage hours later, the doctors informed him that the damage done to his legs meant his daredevil days were over. That didn’t sit well with Octavio, who turned to an old friend for help: Ajay Che, who he guilted into forging an order to replace his legs with bionic ones. Suddenly able to repair his limbs at a moment’s notice, Octavio decided petty online stunts weren’t enough: the ultimate adrenaline rush, the Apex Games, was calling. Now, he’s going to become an Apex Champion doing the most incredible, death-defying moves anyone’s ever seen. Maybe in the arena, he won’t be so bored.[1]


  • Is widely believed that Octane's lore was inspired by a Titanfall 2 speedrunner, who used grenades to gain speed in order to complete the Gauntlet in just 12 seconds.[2]
