Apex Legends Season 10’s Collection Event has finally been revealed in the form of Evolution and it revolves around the Amped Modder, Rampart.

Season 10 of Apex Legends is well underway, and it brought with it the lethal Rampage SMG, the brand new Legend Seer, and Ranked Arenas.

Now, as the mid-point of the Season approaches, the Collection event is dropping, and this time the spotlight is on Rampart.

Rampart will be bringing Big Maude to Worlds Edge in her Town Takeover, as well as taking over Arenas, and receiving her very own heirloom.

There’s a range of new content arriving in this Collection event including a Town Takeover, a new heirloom, Arenas features, and of course, balance changes.

So, without further ado, let’s rundown everything there is to look forward to in the upcoming event. Don’t forget you can check out the full patch notes for the event via Respawn.

Big Maude arrives in Rampart Town Takeover

Big Maude will be arriving on World’s Edge.

It’s Rampart’s turn for a Town Takeover and she’s bringing Big Maude to Worlds Edge, a mod shop in the form of a giant tank located near Lava City.

Fit with its very own paintball course and enough loot to fully kit out a set of squads, this is definitely going to be a hotspot following September 14.

Big Maude isn’t just a loot haven though, the mod shop is fitted with Vend-it Machines where players can purchase Rampart’s Custom Modded Paintball Weapons which all come in different tiers.

This is going to make the location a rotation option for teams in the mid-game that don’t feel they’ve got enough upgrades from just ground loot.

Not satisfied with just taking over the main BR, Rampart is going to have an impact on Arenas, introducing modded weapons at special discounts.

Keep in mind, these marked-down modded weapons replace their base version for the match, making lower tiers of that weapon unavailable.

Rampart’s new Heirloom: Problem Solver

Rampart is getting her very own Heirloom in Evolution.

As with any Collection event, there’s an heirloom to obtain and this time it’s Rampart’s Problem Solver. This wrench is certainly a hefty melee weapon, and players will need to complete the collection event to obtain it.

Evolution Collection Event & Reward Track

Players will need to complete the collection event to obtain Rampart’s Heirloom.

It wouldn’t be a collection event without new cosmetics to obtain and Evolution brings a fresh reward track for players to progress through. Simply complete daily and weekly challenges to work your way through the track and earn all of the exclusive rewards.

Not only that, if you’re looking to obtain Rampart’s Heirloom, you’ll need to collect all of the new event items before Evolution ends, so make sure you’re prepared for September 14.

Evolution Legend balance updates

Rampart

  • Reduced jump pad horizontal distance by 10% – 15%.
