Apex Legends trailer takes a closer look at Rampart’s abilities
A new trailer has been released for Apex Legends by developer Respawn Entertainment that focuses on upcoming Legend Rampart.
“Rampart is a blue-collar, private business owner who just needs a big gun and a backpack full of scrap metal to get by in the dangerous, wild west world of the Outlands,” her bio on the game’s official site reads. “Before opening her popular modding shop on Gaea, Ramya Parekh (Rampart for short) made a name for herself in the underground gauntlet circuit. Parekh climbed to the top showcasing pure skill using her custom-modded gear. She began taking jobs from smugglers, Syndicate members, and everyone in between. Some say it ain’t great unless it’s got “Rampart” written on it.”
Rampart’s Tactical Ability allows her to deploy a full-cover amped wall that will block all incoming shots and amp up all outgoing bullets. While her Ultimate is a mounted minigun called Sheila which can be used by any Legend and has a high ammo capacity, but a long reload time.
Finally, Rampart’s passive works similarly to the recently introduced Graffiti mod from the Always Be Closing LTM by increasing magazine capacity and reload speed when using LMGs and the Minigun.
Apex Legends Season 6 begins at 10 p.m. PT tonight and will include the introduction of Rampart, a crafting system, a new Battle Pass, World’s Edge changes, and more.
