The newest Season 6 character in Apex Legends will be getting a brand new ‘Custom Finish’ skin along with an exclusive weapon charm, and Rampart has never looked better! Let’s take a look at the game’s Twitch Prime rewards for August and how to grab them for free.

As players should know by now,  Twitch Prime subscribers receive free cosmetic drops in Apex Legends, similar to other rewards for games like GTA Online, FIFA 20, and other popular titles.

The new Rampart outfit is neon green, purple, and features a blonde recoloring of her hair, quite different than the skins we’ve seen so far for the new Legend.

The skin and charm are available to Twitch Prime members for free as of August 21, and will replace the previous offerings of the Swimming Buddy Pathfinder skin and Mix Tape gun charm. So, let’s take a look at how to get the latest drop.

Here’s the new Rampart skin included in August’s Twitch Prime rewards. Soon enough, a ton of Apex Legends players will have it equipped.

This is the ninth drop in the Apex Legends Twitch Prime rewards series, with the likes of Caustic, Revenant, and Pathfinder coming before Rampart.

Now, though, it’s the newest legend’s time to shine. Below is a step-by-step guide on how to get the latest exclusive skin and “Finely Tuned” charm.

  1. Visit the Apex Legends page on the Twitch Prime website.
  2. Log in with a Twitch account that has an active Prime subscription.
  3. Click the ‘Claim Now’ button above the Rampart Custom Finish skin and the Finely Tuned Gun Charm.
  4. When prompted, then click to link your EA account with your Twitch account.
  5. Once your accounts have been linked, the item will be claimed and added to your in-game inventory – ready to use!

The Finely Tuned gun charm is the perfect accessory for all the new Rampart mains out there.

Rampart has just arrived in Apex Legends as well with the Season 6 update on August 17, and Respawn is obviously wasting no time beefing up her portfolio with cosmetics.

A true defensive legend, the “Quick-witted Modder” is able to build her own barricades with her Amped Cover Tactical ability, which deploys a full-cover amped wall that blocks incoming shots and amplifies outgoing shots

Combine this with the Modded Loader Passive, which gives her increased magazine size and reloading speed with LMGs, and the new character is already looking like someone to be taken seriously right out of the gate.

Rampart has finally joined the Apex Games in Season 6.

Her ultimate, affectionately called “Sheila,” summons a turret-like minigun that’s fixed in place, which Rampart and her teammates can all operate and rain down damage on any enemy team within range.

With the new Twitch Prime skin, you’ll be building and throwing down turrets in style. But if you want the exclusive cosmetic to be sure to claim it when it releases, because once it’s gone, it’ll be unavailable for good.

Respawn Senior Game Designer wants more “non-BR” modes in Apex Legends

Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Z. Klein is a big fan of Apex Legends’ non-BR modes, and would want the studio to experiment with a few more concepts after seeing how successful the Winter Express has been.

Admittedly, Klein isn’t a part of the game modes team at Respawn, but the senior developer gave his preference on which direction the battle royale could take from here. Previous modes like Hunt and the Winter Express tweaked Apex’s typical formula, giving players something different to get their hands on.

The team at Respawn has proven they can make modes that don’t feed into the normal BR format but still create products that resonate with their players. Klein would like to see more of this out of Apex in the following seasons, though has said there’s not much to reveal on that front as of yet.

“I really want us to try more non-BR things; I think Winter Express was a wonderful proof of concept that Apex can be super fun in non-BR modes,” he said on Reddit. “I think something Mario Party-like, like (League of Legends’) Nexus Blitz, would probably be a bit too much for a game like Apex, but there are LOTS of cool things we could do.”

He isn’t wrong on that final point. Aside from being a solid battle royale in the bustling genre, Apex Legends has something unique that not many games can boast about: it’s incredible characters.

Respawn have injected a vast amount of lore and personality into their cast of 15 Legends, meaning they can produce nearly any mode they want without struggling with how it logistically fits into the game.

We kind of got a taste of that type of ingenuity with the Fight or Fright Collection Event, that showed Pathfinder teleporting into a night version of Kings Canyon which introduced the Shadowfall mode.

Now that there’s vehicles and loads of new gameplay mechanics in Season 7, non-BR modes like races, new PvE concepts, and more can be a frontrunner for possibilities to explore.

Like Klein said, there isn’t anything Respawn are ready to announce for Apex Legends as of yet, but players have loads of content to hold them over until they do.
