Apex Legends ability idea would make Rampart the ultimate camper

An Apex Legends player has got an interesting concept that would change Rampart’s current passive ability and help her become the ultimate late game camper. 

After plenty of speculation, Rampart finally joined Apex Legends’ roster of character with the Season 6 update – with her abilities certainly being a change from the way Respawn usually does thing. 

As a result, you can regularly find Rampart, her Sheila minigun ultimate, and her amped cover throughout both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge, but players have been begging for a buff of some kind.

Respawn have not yet confirmed if the legend will be receiving a boost at some point, but that hasn’t stopped players takings things into their own hands by devising a few interesting buffs – including one for her passive.

The new Apex Legends season has given fans the chance to finally play as Rampart.

The idea comes from Reddit user NakolStudios, who suggests that the modder could tap into her creative side by changing out the additional ammo and magazine sizes from her current passive for the ability to repair and modify doors.

Yes, you read that right, repair and modify doors. The idea would be that if Rampart upgrades a door on a building, it could withstand more damage than normal from melee attacks or grenades. 

Combined with her amped cover, this could make the legend pretty difficult to displace if she and her teammates are cooped up in a building.

While the idea is pretty interesting, and certainly something some fans might want to see, Rampart is more of a modder than a carpenter – so it might just be a touch out of her wheelhouse. 

Respawn have also previously stated that they are unable to flat out copy fan ideas so if they wanted to use the idea, they’d have to tweak it in some way – so you’d probably end up with something pretty different anyway.

Apex Legends makes big changes to care package weapons in Season 7

Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that they’re making some pretty big changes in regards to the care package weapons in Apex Legends Season 7, as the R-99 is set to return to floor loot. 

With each new season, Respawn Entertainment brings plenty of changes to Apex Legends. New characters are introduced, existing ones are changed with buffs or nerfs, there’s usually a new weapon, skins, and sometimes items. 

In Season 7, Horizon is joining the Apex Games, and we’ve already had a whole host of legend changes confirmed too – as well as a handful of skins being revealed for a few different characters. 

On the new weapons front, though, confirmed details have been lacking. There have been rumors about new weapons, and even a new item type, but the biggest change looks to be coming to the care package weapons.

Care package weapons are rotated each season, meaning that some fan favorites become hard to find. This includes the R-99, which was regarded as one of the top weapons in Apex in the last few seasons. 

However, when it comes to Season 7, the powerful light ammo SMG is coming out of the care packages and returning to being floor loot – and potentially the Replicator through crafting too. 

This was confirmed by Apex Legends dev Chad Grenier in a pre Season 7 media briefing, who noted that the Prowler should be taking its place.

As for changes to the R-99, there’s no telling if it’ll be nerfed significantly in Season 7, or if it’ll return to its previous form where it was pretty strong anyway.

We’ll just have to wait until the patch notes are revealed when the new Season update releases on November 4 and bring Horizon, Olympus, and a whole host of new content with it as well.
