Welcome to the SCUF legend guide for Mad Maggie in Apex Legends. If you’re new to Apex or just looking to learn everything you can about the various playable legends in Apex Legends you’ve come to the right place.

Apex Legends is home to all different kinds of playstyles, but Mad Maggie – The Rebel Warlord – is all about aggressive rushdown. If you enjoy the thrill of the chase for pushing weakened enemies, Mad Maggie is the perfect legend for you. Mad Maggie offers a mix of info gathering for scouting out player locations, and the raw movement speed and aggression needed to break down defensive fortifications.



Margaret "Mad Maggie" Kōhere was born in 2679. Raised by a family of engineers, her parents' untimely deaths left her with no choice but to turn to a life of crime.

Despite growing up in a difficult area without family, she found comfort in her childhood friend Walter "Fuse" Fitzroy. During one of their adventures, they found a golden hand grenade held by a deceased revolutionary and began exchanging it to symbolize their friendship.

Kōhere's mischievous nature was apparent from a young age, such as when she released the class's birds at Fuse's request. As they grew up, the pair engaged in various illegal activities, from theft and burglary to bomb disposal. However, their priorities began to diverge over time.

While Fuse was drawn to bloodsport and joined Salvo's notorious Bonecage, Kōhere became committed to Salvo's independence struggle and led a group of fierce fighters known as the Cracked Talon. Here, she carried out several acts of terrorism in the name of an independent Salvo.

As the Cracked Talon grew in strength, so too did Margaret Kōhere's reputation for ruthlessness on the battlefield. From the mist of battle arose "Mad Maggie." This moniker was born from her savage approach to combat. Her relentless grit and combat expertise earned her a reputation that struck fear in her enemies and inspired awe in her allies. Her brazen tactics and daring maneuvers became legendary as her ruthless efficiency dominated the battlefield. With each victory, her notoriety grew, and her reputation became legendary.

This unyielding spirit and battle prowess garnered her the title "Mad Maggie," a name that evoked both fear and admiration. Her legacy as a fierce fighter lives on, and those who dare cross her path would be wise to remember the name that strikes fear in the hearts of her foes — Mad Maggie.

To stop Kōhere's attacks, Fuse, Bloodhound, and Lifeline engaged her, but she attempted to persuade Fuse to return to a fight for independence. After some time, Fuse decided to stop Mad Maggie, and during their fight, both fell off a ledge after using explosives against each other. Fuse offered his arm to Kōhere to save her, but she refused and fell to her death. However, she would not die so easily and would later resurface attempting to build a resistance force in the Págos Fringe World.

Mad Maggie fled aboard her Goblin fighter and was eventually shot down in a dogfight. However, she was teleported away before her plane crashed and eventually captured on Olympus by the Mercenary Syndicate. Mad Maggie used her final request to write a letter to Fuse, reflecting on how individuals define freedom.

The Magistrate held a kangaroo court for her. During the trial, Mad Maggie argued that all her actions were justified in the name of freedom. However, the Magistrate was unconvinced and sentenced her to punishment.

In a shocking move, Mad Maggie, Apex Legends’ ever-rebellious fighter, spat a chipped gold tooth at the Magistrate, blinding one of his eyes. Before being sentenced to death, Eduardo Silva interceded and, instead of execution, forced Kōhere to participate in the Apex Games as punishment for crimes against the Syndicate.


Mad Maggie’s abilities are all about pushing enemies into unfavorable positions so your team can push forward aggressively. Using Mad Maggie’s abilities properly can help carve out an entry into even the most defensive setup.

Warlord’s Ire (Passive) - Enemies you damage will temporarily be highlighted for you and your team. Additionally, Mad Maggie gains 1.15x movement speed when walking or running with a shotgun.

Riot Drill (Tactical) - Fire a drill that burrows into an obstacle and fires a flare that burns enemies on the other side.

Wrecking Ball (Ultimate) - Throw a ball that will release speed boosting pads as it rolls, breaks down doors, and explodes upon contact with an enemy.

Maggie’s abilities are tailored towards being the entry fragger in a fight. Typically you will dump your abilities into a location where you know the enemy team is holed up. Typically your pre-engage will chip down the enemy’s shields, after which you run in with a shotgun and your Warlord’s Ire movement speed, finishing off any low health enemies.

Obviously, Apex Legends is a game where you will be playing different engagements in different ways. You don’t always have to rush, especially if doing so spells out a death sentence. However, you do typically want to use your kit to dismantle defensive setups, even if you are not able to run in aggressively for a follow-up.


Keep these tips in mind while playing Mad Maggie to make sure you’re getting the most out of this Assault legend in your games.

  • Bloodhound and Seer work perfectly with Mad Maggie, as their abilities reveal enemy locations, allowing her to quickly take them down with her Riot Drill. Additionally, Mad Maggie's ability to temporarily scan enemies she's harmed makes it easy to keep up with opponents' movements.
  • Bangalore and Mad Maggie are an unstoppable duo. Bangalore's smoke can often hinder teammates' vision, but not with Mad Maggie on your side. Even a single errant shot through the fog can expose an attacker long enough for Mad Maggie to track and deal heavy damage. Pair this with Mad Maggie's ultimate ability, and the confusion caused by the smoke can quickly lead to an opposing squad's downfall.
  • You can use your drill defensively, not just offensively. Shoot the drill through a nearby wall and use the flare effect as a deterrent for anyone attempting to push aggressively. This should give you the space you need to heal or refill your shields.
  • Riot drill pierces shields in the same way it would walls. When pushing into a Gibraltar, use your drill to prevent him from using his dome shield. This also works on other legends with defensive fortifications, like Rampart, but Rampart can remove her fortifications to stop the flare effect.
  • Mad Maggie’s ultimate is not a damage tool, but rather an initiation machine used for stunning and disrupting the enemy as you make a push. Make sure you use your ultimate in concurrence with your Riot Drill to destroy and expose any defensive setups before pushing in.
