Apex Legends’ The latest short, “Gridiron,” gave fans some answers about Bangalore’s past. The video shows fans a bit of her interaction with Jackson after she woke up in IMS Hestia and finally lets fans know exactly where she got her Heirloom.
The film begins at the end of the Border War. Bangalore fights against a cloaked enemy Pilot who crashed the legend. Her injuries took her straight to the hospital wing of IMS Hestia.
The video shows the final days of the Gridiron base, home of the IMC, surrounded by militia troops. The IMC coin ordered the soldiers to enter the attack formation. Bangalore’s brother, Jackson Williams, defied the order, believing the war had been lost. Instead, he told his crew to prepare for a super jump, taking them to the Outlands.
The Hestia crash landed on the Outlands, where Bangalore woke up. Jackson told her that the IMC was called a retreat and the ship was one of the few that made it through. Still clinging to its loyalty to its IMC, Bangalore believes that IMC will never give up on Gridiron. She sends an SOS to “any IMC friendly” requesting “immediate evacuation”. The system says there is no signal in range.
She received a response from the Commander of the IMC Scryer, who asked Bangalore about the condition of her commanding officer. Scryer probably told Bangalore how the War ended and how the orders were not to withdraw. The soldier confronts her brother about this, he says war is a cause of loss and he signed up to protect his family. An IMC ship landing interrupted the conversation.
Commander Scryer appears, telling Jackson that he is an “IMC traitor” and that his punishment for desertion is death. Bangalore told Scryer he promised leniency and the commander replied that he would give Jackson “a quicker death than he deserves.” Bangalore asks for a trial, but Scryer pulls out his gun. Bangalore drew a pistol of his own and the commander seemed to back away.
Instead of leaving, however, Scryer called an air raid on the village, then personally pursued Bangalore and Jackson. Using his jet propulsion, he followed Bangalore and grabbed her. The soldier took Scryer’s knife from its sheath and hurled it at the commander, causing him to drop her to the ground.
The IMC commander showed up, and Bangalore and Jackson stood their ground. The commander also uses cloaking technology, and Bangalore, reminded of his fight against the Cloaked Pilot at the short end, jumps on him and kills him with his own knife. This will become the Bangalore Heirloom, added during the Chaos Theory event.
After the incident, Bangalore and Jackson fled. As she explained to Wraith during the countdown in front of the cinema, there was another IMS Hestia — and it was probably the IMS Hestia from which Jackson went missing.
While “Gridiron” doesn’t have as many bombastic revelations as other installments in the Tales from the Outlands series, it still gives fans some much-needed lore about one of the Toporiginal myths — and one that went unnoticed until last year.
Stories from the Outlands are Respawn Entertainment’s usual way of conveying the lore of new and old lore alike. Wraith’s “Voidwalker,” Bloodhound’s “The Old Ways,” and Pathfinder’s “Fight Night” told the stories of the original cast in the game. They all come with an in-game event, meaning fans could see a Bangalore-themed event in the coming weeks.
