Mysterious new spray-painted messages have started to pop up in Apex Legends, and all signs (literally) point to them being teasers for Season 6 the next new character – Rampart.

The name ‘Rampart’ was first mentioned in the very first leaks for Apex Legends, all the way back in February 2019. However, it was unclear what the character looked like or what their abilities would be.

Since then, many more leaks and information have come out about this shadowy legend from dataminers, who claimed back in July that spray-painted teasers reading ‘All Hail Sheila’, believed to be Rampart’s first name, would be appearing on the map before Season 6.

It seems that their predictions were correct, as Apex leaker Biast12 has now shared videos of spray-painted signs praising ‘Sheila’ found around the Drill Site on World’s Edge.

The first sign tweeted by Biast does indeed read ‘All Hail Sheila,’ further reinforcing the theory that this will be the Legend’s real name, and ‘Rampart’ is just a stand-in, a codename of sorts.

That name isn’t the only thing sprayed on the Drill Site signs though; there are also ones with ‘SHOP’ painted in green along with an ‘R’ symbol that’s become associated with Rampart from various leaks in the past.

Nothing is set in stone at the time of writing, but all of these clues put together definitely make a strong case for Sheila/Rampart being the next new legend to arrive in Apex Legends for Season 6.

There’s also the matter of the spray paint itself; numerous leaks have pointed to Respawn adding in a feature that’ll allow players to spray pre-set decals on the map, similar to other games that have that sort of mechanic.

While that’s still to be confirmed, this is at least in-game proof that something like that exists, but whether or not it’ll be added, and when, remains to be seen.

Whatever is going to happen in the game’s next chapter, we’ll probably be getting more information soon, as Apex tweeted out a cryptic teaser (surprise, surprise) for something happening on August 6.

The start of a season in Apex is usually when we see new Legends added to the game. So what do you think, will the mysterious Rampart finally be revealed to be Sheila?

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.
