Apex Legends Mobile Gibraltar Ability Tips and tricks

  • The gun shield is deployed after a short delay when you ADS. The shield also has limited health and once broken, there is a cooldown period
  • You can decrease the gun shield's cooldown period by using Shield Cells, Shield batteries, and Phoenix kits
  • Gun shield can be turned off - Enemies can easily spot it, so if you don't want to grab the attention, make sure to turn it off
  • Fight around the edges of the dome. A fight inside the dome doesn't benefit you, but a fight where you can continually pass in and out of the dome will benefit you greatly
  • Anyone who is caught by Gibi's called strike is stunned, whether friend or foe. While teammates won't take damage, but he himself will so be careful
  • Keep in mind that Wattson's Interception Pylon can near-completely counter a Gibraltar ult.

How to play Gibraltar?

Gibraltar is a team player and should be played that way only. His abilities are all meant to be used to help the entire team. Always be on the lookout for any opportunity to use your tactical Dome and help your teammates. You can also move ahead of your teammates, soaking up the damage and protecting your allies.

Communication is very important when you are playing this character. Make sure to let your teammates know when you are going to use Dome or Defensive Bombardment. Bad use and you can ruin your team's chance of winning.

Lastly, in Apex Legends Mobile Gibraltar is pretty easy to learn. Just practice your dome placement a bit and gather experience taking fights around it, and you are good to go.
