Operators from different classes, which is a rarity, have no special feature alone, other than eye-grabbing skins, although they can further equip a specific BR class of specific ability. In contrast, legends from different categories have certain abilities in-built which they specialize in, like defense, attack, support, etc.

Operators of COD Mobile don't need to heal in Multiplayer mode, while in Battle Royale mode, they have to recover each bit of damage they have been dealt. In-game healing items include Medikits, Armor plates to heal armor, Bandaids, and Adrenaline shots to boost recovery.

On the other hand, Apex Legends features similar kinds of items for the Legends like Syringes, Med Kits, shield cells, and shield batteries.
