How To Play As BANGALORE
Use Bangalore For Straight-Forward Shootouts
Bangalore's skills & abilities give her an infantry-type role with a heavy emphasis on artillery. She's best used in straight-forward shootouts which will have her raining bullets down on her opponents.
Speed Burst & Smoke Attack Allow Ambushes
Bangalore can throw a smokescreen and activate a speed boost when taking fire, allowing her to jump right behind an opponent, easily taking them out in an ambush.
Ultimate Ability Has Wide AoE
Bangalore's Rolling Thunder has the widest area of effect in the game. She calls in a barrage of rockets onto a wide area, making it easy to damage & sweep enemies down.
BANGALORE - Character Ability
Tactical Ability - SMOKE LAUNCHER

Best Used Defensively
Bangalore's Smoke Launcher is a useful skill to have when your team member or yourself is caught in a pinch. The smoke screen will blur the enemy's vision, allowing you to make a quick run towards safety or when reviving a fallen teammate.
Use Smoke As Cover
There are plenty of open spaces in the map which can leave you open to enemy fire. Use the Smoke Launcher as cover as necessary to avoid damage.
Use For Reviving Allies and Looting Death Boxes
The Smoke Launcher helps in providing cover while performing time consuming actions such as looting Death Boxes, and reviving allies. Make sure to use the smoke while doing so to keep you and your team safe.
Bloodhound's Beast Of The Hunt Can See Through Smoke
Be careful of Bloodhound's Ultimate Ability as it allows him to see through smoke, which can nullify the smoke's effect. The attachment Digital Threat can also see through smoke, so watch out. Conversely, having Bloodhound and Digital Threat sight on your team will be a powerful team combo.
Low Cooldown Allows Frequent Use
Smoke Launcher has a very short cooldown time of 32 seconds, which allows you to use the ability frequently.
Ultimate Ability - ROLLING THUNDER

Activate To Finish Off Retreating Enemies
Rolling Thunder has one of the widest area of effects in terms of damage in Apex Legends. It's a great way to finish off enemies that are retreating or deal some heavy damage towards mobile targets. It's also a good move to start off your attacks when spotting enemies in the open.
Use To Force Enemies To Move
With the ability's high AOE, the Rolling Thunder ability forces enemies to move out and scatter to safety. This is best used for drawing out enemies, or force enemies to move away from advantageous positions.
Slows Down Movement For A Few Seconds
Rolling Thunder also slows enemy movement for a short duration, allowing you to throw a grenade effectively, or ping enemy positions.
Use Only Outside Of Buildings
The ability will only work outdoors, so make sure to use this ability on open spaces only, and not inside buildings or areas with multiple structures.
Passive Ability - DOUBLE TIME
DOUBLE TIME - Overview
|Taking fire while sprinting makes you move faster for a brief time.|
Effective In Pushing Forward Or Hasty Escapes
This skill gives Bangalore a brief speed boost when sprinting while under fire. It's effective when pushing for getting in and out of hot situations, whether to do quick kills or making a hasty retreat.
Improve Fire Fight Survival
The burst of speed that Double Time grants can also improve your performance in firefights. The skill allows you to strafe quickly and make your moves more unpredictable, improving fire fight survival.
Ability Will Not Activate Unless Sprinting
Double Time will not be activated unless Bangalore is sprinting, so if you're shot while standing still, ability will not activate. Make sure you're sprinting especially in a fire fight.
BANGALORE - Tips
Survive And Reorganize Team
Bangalore's Smoke Launcher and Double Time allows her to increase her and her team's chances of survival, and be able to reorganize the team and recover quickly from a fire fight.
Use Smoke Launcher On The Entire Team
Make sure that you use the Smoke Launcher on your entire team, especially in many key situations such as withdrawing from a fight, or moving your team to safety. This will increase your overall team's chances of survival compared to using the Smoke Launcher just for yourself.
