Apex Legends Season 10 Emergence introduced us to Obi, better known as Seer, a cursed child born from a woman bearing the mark of the moth. If that wasn’t ominous enough, Obi’s grand entrance into the world came just as a meteor hit the moon.

If you’d like to learn more about Apex Legends’ Seer, then you’re in the right place. Having been in one of the best battle royale games for quite some time now, we know all there is to know about Seer.

Apex Legends Seer release date

Seer was added to Apex Legends on Tuesday, August 3, 2021, which coincided with the launch of Apex Legends Season 10 Emergence.

For a quick rundown of the unique hero, Seer possesses “microdrones and an artist’s eye”, giving him the ability to spot “other opportunities that other legends might miss”, and seize them “in the most beautiful way he can.”

Apex Legends Seer abilities

Seer’s abilities are as follows:

  • (Passive) Heartseeker: While aiming down sights, Seer can hear the heartbeat of nearby legends, helping him discover their location.
  • (Tactical) Focus of Attention: Seer releases several micro drones and after a delay they mark all enemies in front of him, interrupting their use of healing items/revives and revealing their locations and health to Seer and his allies for eight seconds.
  • (Ultimate) Exhibit: Seer throws out his heart chamber, which releases hundreds of mini drones that form a sphere. Enemies that move quickly or fire their weapons in the sphere are marked, revealing their location and footsteps to Seer and his allies. Enemies can destroy the heart chamber by shooting and destroying it, in a similar manner to stopping Crypto and Horizon’s ultimate abilities.

Apex Legends Seer lore and story

An unspecified amount of time prior to Obi’s birth came the origins of his power. In The Moth and the Flame teasers posted to the official Apex Twitter account before the character was released, we learned of a doomed romance between a blind princess – who was locked away by her parents to protect her from the world – and her lover. When the princess’ lover was imprisoned by her parents for trying to steal her away, she struck a bargain with a cursed moth.

In return for freeing her from the confines of her room to be with her lover, the princess swore an oath that the moth would be reborn as her child, freeing it from its curse. Unfortunately, the princess, moth, and mystery man all perished before the oath could be carried out, passing the moth’s curse down to those who bore its mark – such as Seer’s mother.

Apex Legends Seer teaser locations

Prior to their full reveal, Respawn played it cheeky by teasing players about the latest hero to hit the roster. There were a total of 11 teasers for Seer scattered between the Olympus and World’s Edge maps. In each location, you would have to keep an eye out for Seer’s golden chest piece, as interacting with the shiny lump of tech would make it yield its secrets.

You can see the complete rundown of each teaser location below:

How to unlock Seer in Apex Legends

Just like any other legend, Seer can be unlocked at the cost of 750 Apex Coins (you can buy 1,000 Apex Coins for $10.00 or £7.99) or 12,000 Legend Tokens. If you’ve been busy clearing up kills and picking up wins, you’ll most likely already have enough Legend Tokens saved to snap up Seer.

Apex Legends Seer voice actor

Seer is voiced by Nigerian-born voice actor Iké Amadi. Amadi has worked across the videogames industry for over a decade and is best known for voicing Knack in Knack and Knack II. He has also voiced Prowler in Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Atrocitus in Injustice 2.

Outside of videogames, Amadi has lent his voice to the character Angor Rot in the Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia Netflix series (alongside its videogame adaptation, Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia).

As an extra fun bit of trivia, Amadi also appeared in Love, Death & Robots – which Passion Pictures – the studio which animated the Metamorphosis short – also worked on.

So, that’s all you need to know about Apex Legends’ Seer, one of the many great characters you can dominate the arena as.
