Apex Legends level designer Alex Graner revealed what could be the first image of Revenant in the background of a series of visuals he uploaded.

There were a lot of teases for Crypto, the newest character in Apex Legends, and now that he’s in the game, it looks like Respawn already have their eyes set on someone else.

In a collection of images uploaded to his Twitter page, Graner gave us what appears to be our first look at the upcoming Legend called Revenant.

It’s surprising to see a new character introduced with little fanfare like this, but we’ll take anything we can get in terms of new information.

Apex Legends traditionally releases one new Legend per season, and with Crypto being the Season 3 addition, we have already reached that quota, so either we’re getting a second one soon, or this is being saved for a future season.

While this is our supposed first look at Revenant from an official source, we saw a leaked image of him as recently as October 6, which had a picture of him along with other unreleased characters.

At the time, it was hard to confirm if the leak was indeed accurate, but now it’s looking like it has some more weight behind it, though still unconfirmed.

Of course, now that we have a potential name and a face to this new character, we’re still missing is his abilities and release date.

With the Halloween event just right around the corner, that would be a perfect time for Respawn to introduce the new character, if they decide to go that route.

For a game that has no single-player campaign, Apex Legends has a surprisingly deep amount of lore baked into it.

We’re sure Revenant will have a complex backstory like Crypto, Wattson, Octane, and the others had before him.

Look for more information regarding this new character going forward and stay with Dexerto for more updates.

Apex Legends dev confirms Rampart buff coming in Season 7

Rampart has been a little underwhelming since joining the Apex Legends roster, but she’s in for a nice buff in the Season 7 update and fans have been trying to guess what it might include.

Apex Legends introduced Rampart back in Season 6, and although she seemed enticing at first, she quickly fell out of favor.

Players voiced their concerns on social media, describing her as ‘weak’ and ‘broken.’ “Am I tripping or is she seriously weak?” said a player in a Reddit thread. “She is one of the worst in the game,” said another.

Of course, it’s not all whining and complaining. One player took it a step further and tried to pinpoint exactly what he thought the problem was. “Her accuracy on the turret is broken,” he said. The list goes on, and on, and on. Most of the criticism seems to revolve around her ultimate. The consensus is that while her minigun makes her powerful, it leaves her vulnerable.

As a discussion took place over what players can expect in the October 22 update, a user on Reddit said they would “love to hear about Rampart’s buff.” They also wanted to know about potential Mirage changes.

Respawn game designer Daniel Klien, who focuses on Legend changes, responded, saying, “Both of those are in! Keep an eye out for the patch notes; I don’t wanna spoil stuff before.”

Nobody knows exactly what the buff will entail, but it’s fair to say that players would be open to just about anything at this point. Some of the suggestions have been great, so it’s possible that one or more of them will come to fruition.

Potential Rampart buffs?

It’s erupted into quite a discussion, and players have bounced around ideas on how she can be improved.

Some suggested she should be able to hold her minigun like a heavy weapon but with a small movement penalty. That way, she’d be less vulnerable and it would fix the issue.

Others thought that would be a bit much and potentially make her overpowered. Instead, they think she should be able to pick up and drop the minigun at will. 

Either way, Apex Legends players have made it pretty clear that Rampart needs a buff. Thankfully, their prayers have been answered.

Apex Legends Season 7 is set to begin on November 10!
