Upon analyzing reports from scouts on an Apex production facility, I can conclude that Apex is trying to make a ranking system just like ours.
In one of the photos, there are is a 4x8 box of Apex soldiers, presumably for a drill practice, even though they aren’t needed; both Vertices and Apex soldiers know exactly how to get into position. Perhaps their leader does it for the hell of it?
In front of the drill, there is a unique looking bot staring them down. Said bot has similar visual qualities to myself: the body frame, neck, height. However, the differences between me and this “Commander” is that his head is shaped very differently. Like all Apex bots, they have a head with the face being dependent of a screen going down the middle, similar to the helmet of Guy-man of Daft Punk. However; the helmet of the commander seemed to be more of an older iteration. It looked like the rejected version of the “Hazmat Headcase” hat for the Pyro class of Team Fortress 2.
In relation to the Pyro, the Commander had a tank of (Either napalm or propane) on his back, with two cables running from the base to his hands. Judging by his design, he is able to use his cylindrical wrists as a flamethrower, with four faucets evenly spaced on each wrist.
After inspecting this new data, it is theorized that if the tank on his back is taken out, eliminating him should become simple. That is, until I saw him executing one of his own to make an example. He is very agile, and can use his ability to an advantage regarding movement. While showing to the Apex soldiers what would happen to any dissenters, the commander (promptly named “Nero”) showed that he could “throw fireballs” by simply activating and deactivating his flames on a quick timeframe, as well as doing a “fire uppercut” by having the flames at a low speed and height. It is unknown how many other techniques he has. More plans to study “Nero” more are to be done in the coming week.
To make things worse, he was painted red. Apex hates red. Either they were shooting to copy Babel that badly or for some other unknown reason.
