Amid all of the teasers for Apex Legends Season 7, one phrase has been on the lips of quite a few characters: Branthium. However, what is that this? A location, materials, or one thing else completely? Right here, we’ll put collectively all of the clues to resolve this thriller.
The primary time we heard the phrase Branthium in Apex Legends, it got here from Ash, on the finish of the Season 5 Damaged Ghost quest.
Ash is the villain from Titanfall 2, who was recruited by Kuben Blisk, earlier than she “died” by the hands of Jack Cooper, was put again collectively once more, her reminiscence wiped, after which her head cut up into elements and unfold all through Kings Canyon.
As soon as the Legends put her head again collectively, she spoke to them, and, as a part of an unintelligible message, stated: “all roads result in Branthium.”
What’s Branthium in Apex Legends?
After the point out from Ash, within the first Twitter teaser for Season 7, Horizon (expected to be the next playable Legend), repeated the phrase “Branthium” in amongst all of the static.
It later turned clear that Horizon was repeating what Ash stated – or, maybe Ash was repeating Horizon.
Undoubtedly seems like Horizon says “Branthium.”

Is Branthium a spot?
The saying, “all roads result in Branthium”, is undoubtedly a play on the frequent phrase “all roads result in Rome.” Sometimes, this saying refers to “all paths or actions result in the middle of issues” – it comes from Ancient Rome in the literal sense, when all roads began from the capital metropolis.
So, at first, most theories believed Branthium was a spot, probably associated to the planet Psamathe and its metropolis, Olympus. Ash completed her monologue by saying “Welcome to Olympus.”
However, a spanner was thrown within the works of this idea by Horizon. Within the newest Twitter teaser, Horizon says: “Simply acquired to determine how he can fuse the Branthium (or Brantium?) with out important mass.”
…Simply acquired to determine how he can fuse the Brantium with out important mass. A minimum of I did not virtually nuke my ship right this moment, there is a begin! Oh, what I might give to be residence… clear, and simply with him.”

So, is Branthium really some sort of ingredient, or gasoline, or materials? This stays unclear, but it surely wouldn’t make sense for Ash (and Horizon) to say “All roads result in Branthium,” if it was merely some sort of ingredient.
This idea might line up although with the involvement of Hammon Robotics. The Planet Harvester which launched in Season 4 is being utilized by Hammond “to collect treasured metals from the core of the planet for causes unknown.” Is that this metallic Branthium/Brantium?
Maybe, Branthium is each a spot and a component, with the latter named after the previous. Brantium could possibly be a metallic found on the planet Branthium? For now, we merely don’t know, however we’ll preserve this submit up to date as extra teasers emerge about this mysterious phrase, and what it might imply.
Season 7 is about to start out on November 4 – a week earlier than initially planned – so we should always study much more then.
