Apex Legends player reveals more ways to use Revenant’s Ult

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 leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
