Apex Legends writer Tom Casiello has debunked rumors about Rampart’s previously ‘leaked’ abilities, noting that they’re pretty old.
Ever since the first season of Apex Legends, there have been numerous leaks and rumors about the new legends that Respawn has lined up – including their supposed abilities, concept art, and more.
As the hype is building for season six, fans of the battle royale are expectant of a new legend. Previous leaks have suggested that it would be either the ‘Valk/Nova’ character or the long-awaited Rampart.
However, if it is to be Rampart, the character won’t be coming with the previously leaked abilities that have had fans raise an eyebrow as Apex Legends writer Tom Casiello put those rumors to bed.
Rampart has been a part of Apex leaks since season one.
The writer had been tweeting with fans about the future of the battle royale – noting that there is some juicy Lifeline lore in the works and that the devs even have content that will be in the game in two years time.
After one fan was called out for interrupting his impromptu Q & A with the ‘leaked’ abilities for Rampart – which includes the eye-brow raising mounted machine gun ultimate – Casiello quickly fired back.
“He has the balls to reply with *old* leaked content,” the writer said. “Watch. Next, I bet he tells you Revenant’s original name was Nomad.”
He has the balls to reply with *old* leaked content. Watch. Next, I bet he tells you Revenant’s original name was Nomad. ???
What they would be, however, is anyone’s guess. Leakers have been spot on with finding out the abilities before legends are introduced – with Loba being the most recent example of that. So, it’ll be a case of wait and see if they can get their hands on more concrete files about the upcoming legends.
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.
