Respawn Entertainment has released yet another new video for Apex Legends season 6, and this time we’re looking at the brand new Legend that we get to play as. I’ll be honest, I didn’t hold out much hope based on the last trailer we got, but with this one I’m actually quite excited to step into the shoes of Rampart and give a few games a go.
The first thing I want to point out, is that I love Rampart’s accent. I’m also really on board with the idea of her being the best modder around. She looks like the kind of girl some Legends would underestimate, leading to their demise shortly after. But that’s enough about who she is, let’s get into her abilities.
This first ability is a type of cover that Rampart can place down around her squad. The cover can defend a Legend from incoming gunfire, but there’s something else to these pieces of cover as well. There’s a shield section at the top that you can stand in front of and fire through. This section will amp up any shots you fire through it, causing more damage to anyone you manage to hit. I love that this is a feature we’ll be able to use. It’s the ultimate passive buff for everyone on your team, but there’s more to Rampart as well.
When using an SMG or Minigun, Rampart can use this ability to increase her reload speed and magazine capacity. So if you see an enemy coming in quick, you can pull of an extremely fast reload, and lay waste to them as they approach your team from an unexpected angle.
Emplaced Minigun ‘Sheila’
Sheila is the minigun that Rampart can place, and she’s an absolute beast. This is a mounted turret that Rampart lugs around with her, and can use at certain key points in a match. I can see this coming in very handy towards the end of a match, when you’re one of the last surviving Legends and need an advantage that will put you over the edge.
Rampart is definitely going to mix up Apex Legends in Season 6. I can’t wait to get my hands on her abilities and destroy some Legends in the field.
