Lore[edit | edit source]

Chapter 2, Season 1[edit | edit source]

  • At the tail end of the season, furniture in Eye Land slowly turned to gold. This is most likely Midas' doing, preparing to take over the little island.

Chapter 2, Season 2[edit | edit source]

  • At the start of the season, Midas took over Eye Land and formed The Agency, the headquarters of GHOST.
  • At around halfway during the season, Midas began creating a device. It's intentions were unknown. Later throughout the season, it was given the internal name DoomsdayDevice.
  • Midas began powering the device through tubes which would connect to the device. You could see them in the lobby, Battle Pass screen, and in his room.
  • On June 15th, Midas used the device to break the storm, removing it altogether. However, his plans failed and created a massive tsunami in the storm's place, which ultimately led to the map changes that occured in Chapter 2 Season 3.

Chapter 2, Season 3[edit | edit source]

  • At the start of the Season 3 cinematic trailer, Midas is seen stranded on a floating wood floor piece in the water.
  • Midas is then ran over by a shark, destroying his piece of wood. Ironically, Meowscles was riding the shark. His whereabouts are unknown.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Midas' name and Golden Touch originate from the King Midas from Greek mythology.
  • Midas was the leader of the GHOST organization. After the Device live event, he has become a new member (and possibly the new leader) of SHADOW.
    • Midas could've been working for SHADOW while pretending to be a GHOST agent, explaining his change of faction.
  • Midas can be found in The Agency as a Boss NPC. When eliminated by a player, he drops his Drum Gun.
    • When appearing as a henchman boss, he is voiced by Matthew Mercer.
  • Midas is confirmed to be a reactive outfit because of his Golden Touch, which turns any weapons, items or vehicles he touches into gold for the rest of the match, overriding and ignoring other players' Wraps.
  • In the Chapter 2 Season 3 cinematic trailer, Midas is attacked by a shark. It is unknown on whether he survived.
