Apex Legends players have found a simple trick with Gibraltar and Season 6 Legend Rampart’s abilities, making them quite an overpowered duo in-game.

Season 6 of Apex Legends saw the introduction of a new character Rampart, who has a unique playstyle and game-changing abilities, namely her mountable minigun called “Sheila.”

Apex players have already found that Rampart’s abilities synergize well with the Shielded Fortress, Gibraltar, and revealed a clever trick that makes the pair almost unkillable when teaming together.

A new trick with Rampart and Gibraltar’s Dome of Protection could soon take over Apex Legends matches.

The trick allows Rampart players to dish out plenty of damage with the Legend’s ultimate ability, with the added protection of Gibraltar’s tactical shield to keep them safe.

Normally, players are unable to shoot outside of the “Dome of Protection” once they are inside, but Reddit user u/Trans4mer123 shared just how Rampart’s turret could be an exception.

The Apex Legends player revealed both perspectives of the exploit, highlighting that the player on the turret was completely immune to any bullet damage.

The trick can be done by simply placing Sheila at the edge of Gibraltar’s Dome, although it might be difficult to set up in a live match with enemies shooting at you.

While it will probably take a few tries to master, you can gain a huge advantage over your opponents after doing it correctly.

However, this trick is not without its counters, as perfectly placed grenades can still deal damage to the turret, meaning that you will still have to be wary when trying it out.

It is unclear whether or not Respawn intended on this to be a feature in Apex Legends, however, it can be quite devastating to any unsuspecting opponents and will likely lead to more Rampart and Gibraltar picks in-game.

Apex Legends hints at removing World’s Edge in Season 7

Apex Legends players are patiently waiting for Season 7 to begin and explore all the new content coming with it, but fans of World’s Edge will have to be patient to go back to Talos.

The map was added to Apex during Season 3 all the way back in October 2019 and was the second map in the game after King’s Canyon.

While it certainly mixed up the battle royale, it seems like World’s Edge will be on the way out when Season 7 gets going on November 4, 2020, based on what we’ve seen from Respawn.

In a tweet on Oct. 27, the official Apex Legends account hinted that “with World’s Edge on the verge of collapse, the Apex Games need to find a new home.”

It doesn’t take a genius to pick up on what Respawn is putting down here, as it seems the map will be removed from the game, at least for a while, with the start of Season 7.

This wouldn’t be without precedent either. Back in Season 3 when World’s Edge was first introduced King’s Canyon, the game’s original map from the release was removed until it returned in April of 2020.

With Ranked being broken into two splits for the new Season, Respawn plans to introduce players to Olympus, the new home of the Apex Games, before sending players back to WE later in the Ascension update.

In fact, Kings Canyon is already going to be completely nixed from Apex Legends’ ranked playlist in Season 7.

It seems likely that the Legends will board the giant rocket that appeared recently on World’s Edge and set off somewhere new to battle it out for the top spot.

As for what will happen to the train and everything else, there was a black hole showcased in Horizon’s Stories from the Outlands video, that certainly seems like it would be able to swallow the entire map, and even the planet it’s located on.
