Apex Legends players have uncovered an interesting tactic where Rampart’s minigun can team up Caustic’s gas traps to make a pretty powerful pairing in tight spaces.
With the start of Apex Legends Season 6, Rampart was finally introduced to the battle royale’s roster of Legends – bringing some unique abilities with her.
While she can throw up Amped Cover to protect herself and team, as well as starting with increased magazine sizes, Rampart’s biggest weapon – literally – comes in the form of her Emplaced Minigun, Sheila.
Though, as soon as you start using the minigun, the trap will activate – covering you in a cloud of Nox Gas. This means while you’re spraying down the sights with Rampart’s ultimate, anyone who tries to get close will suffer damage from the gas.
Obviously, this could be pretty deadly, but the gas can also obscure the vision of the player using the minigun too. Plus, if an enemy has a deadly accurate shot, they can easily dispose of the gas trap by shooting the base of it.
It remains to be seen as to whether or not the devs will also have to address the way her minigun interacts with the Nox Gas, or if it’ll be left alone given that it shouldn’t really be as powerful as the Gibby dome combo.
Apex Legends Season 7 is on the horizon, which means a new Legend, new weapons and even a new map. So, here’s everything we know so far.
Since releasing back in February 2019, Apex Legends has cemented itself as one of the premier battle royale games around.
Season 7 has been moved up a week, now starting on November 4, cutting your time short to complete the battle pass, if you’re still grinding through it.
The new Legend added to the roster, Horizon, will no doubt be the biggest talking point, but fans are eagerly awaiting the new map, Olympus, the vehicle, Trident, weapons, and more. So, here’s everything we know so far about what Season 7 could have in store.
Rampart joined the party in Apex Legends Season 6, but the countdown is on to Season 7.
Apex Legends Season 7 legend
Horizon is set to become the new Legend in Season 7, joining the roster after her teasers in the Firing Range and most recently in the Ascension trailer. However, Respawn hasn’t as of yet confirmed her abilities, but the trailer showcased a fantastic peek into her skills which will no doubt be a great way to secure the win against your enemies.
The map is bright and highly saturated, full of pink and red-hued trees, lush grass, and gigantic sprawling architecture that will make for a refreshing change from the already fantastic maps available to players in the past.
The Trident, a hovercraft-style vehicle appears throughout the new Ascension trailer
We have also been treated to a new peak at the Trident; a new vehicle that seems to resemble a hovercraft and can take multiple passengers. This is sure to be a fantastic addition to the arsenal of options available to players in how they traverse the map and get that edge over their enemies.
The official Apex Legends website also confirms Clubs are arriving, which as of now are only described as being a way to “find like-minded players, build a community, and rise together.” It will be interesting to see how these Clubs are developed and what it will mean for those that are in them.
Apex on Steam
With the launch of Season 7, Apex Legends will become available for the first time on Steam, with even greater news: player progress will carry over if you were playing on Origin before. Playing on Steam in Season 7 will also give players special Valve-inspired gun charms. This is a fantastic addition for those who like to utilize Steam as their centralized hub for their gaming.
New weapon type: Gadgets
It has also been suggested that a new weapon type – Gadgets – are also set to appear in Apex Legends in the future.
