An Apex Legends player has revealed a pretty extensive list of different uses for Revenant’s Ultimate ability that can help you become a better teammate and score more wins. 

Revenant was introduced to Apex Legends’ roster of playable characters after rumors had swirled about the possibility of seeing Forge and even Loba/Rosie. The Synthetic Nightmare has quickly established himself as a part of the game’s meta — though not everyone is a fan of his ability set. 

The Death Totem Ultimate ability allows Revenant players an extra shot at being alive while in death protection mode, bringing them back with 1HP should they be knocked by an enemy player. However, some fans have found that you can actually use the ability to be a bit more tactical and stealthy.

Ripcityterp posted their list of tips to the Apex Legends subreddit, including some of the wider known ones like being able to pull off a revive or grab a teammate’s banner while they’re outside the ring. 

However, the Redditor had a few more sneaky ones up their sleeve. They noted that the ultimate can be used as a sort of decoy in tightly contested areas because of the noise it produces. With the noise ringing out and attracting enemies, Revenant can crouch walk around pretty undetected — allowing for better positioning.

There was also another idea to give teammates support while combining the Legend’s ultimate with throwables, so that you pop the ability when you spot an enemy team, throw a few grenades at them, and rush their position.

Other players pointed out that they had a few tips that they’d been used that RipCityTerp had missed out on including in their list.

One, STAALION, commented that it can be used as a scouting device, allowing players to check out the status of enemies who they could come into contact with. Another, AlfredosoraX, noted that the totem also has no vertical limit, so players could get into out of bounds areas with it.

Clearly, there are plenty of different uses for Revenant’s Death Totem and as time goes on, players will try and find more creative ways to beat their opponents with it.

For now, though, it might be best to just try and put these ones into action and see if they work for you.

Apex Legends Season 7 is almost here, and that means changes to characters. So, we’ve rounded up all the buffs that Respawn have confirmed so far.

With each new Apex Legends season, players are always looking forward to getting their hands on a new Legend as well as seeing what’s been changed to existing Legends, weapons, and items.

As Season 7 is on the horizon, Respawn have begun to roll out their teasers – with a familiar-looking UFO turning up on both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.

Aside from that, the devs have also been planting seeds about what buffs and nerfs are coming in the new season. So, we’ve rounded up the buffs that we know about so far.

Mirage

As one of Apex’s most popular characters, players have been desperate for Respawn to give Mirage a power increase, even after his abilities rework.

Those changes have always been on the horizon, as devs have answered numerous questions with positives answers about buffs, and those promises will finally come to fruition with the start of Season 7.

Daniel Klein, a game designer for Respawn, confirmed that they’ve been testing changes to his Life of the Party ult, so that could be the main change that the Holographic Trickster receives next season.

Octane

Octane is also confirmed to be getting some positive treatment, but Respawn say it will only be a “tiny buff,” so no indication exactly what it will be yet. 

Rampart

As for Rampart, while a buff has been confirmed, there haven’t been any hints as to what it could entail. Since her introduction, players have made a number of suggestions – including being able to move around while firing her minigun. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see on that front.

Pathfinder

Pathfinder will also be receiving a change to the cooldown on his grapple ability. However, the last time this was labeled a buff, it actually turned out to be a nerf

Audio

Not a buff as such, but Respawn have also confirmed that lots of progress has been made on audio problems, which have been plaguing the game for months, and these fixes will be coming in Season 7.

As for what else is coming in Season 7, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know here. We’ll just have to wait until November 4, when the new season starts, to see it all in action.
