How to counter Revenant’s Ultimate in Apex Legends with Caustic trick

Apex Legends has been hit with a long-awaited update – Season 4: Assimilation. One of the biggest talking points of the new season is the latest Legend, Revenant, and players have already found a neat trick to counter him. 

Revenant is a unique Legend that comes with both a ‘silence’ ability as well as a way to defy death through his ultimate, Death Totem.

This ability allows players to survive an otherwise killing blow, as they return to the totem if they lose all of their health, rather than being downed. However, some fans have already figured out a great counter to this and here’s how to do it.

How to counter Revenant’s ultimate in Apex Legends

If you want to counter Revenant and his ultimate you’ll only need one thing – Caustic.

Whenever you see an enemy throw down their Death Totem simply place a gas trap right next to it, and as soon as anyone teleports to the totem they will be instantly downed.

This only works with Caustic because players under the effect of Revenant’s ultimate only take health damage, so they will still have their one health and shields up when they teleport back, meaning they can still act. However, Caustic’s gas trap will instantly do one hit point of damage, rather than shields, knocking them down.

Of course, it can be rather difficult to get close enough to the totem to actually place a trap, but if you attempt to do it, it’s likely to be well worth the risk, especially as many players still aren’t used to the Legend, never mind his counters.

Now that you know this trick, playing against the newest hero on World’s Edge will be easier, and you’ll have the satisfaction of getting one over on him.

Respawn Entertainment has announced that they are delaying the official release of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, after announcing their launch on Steam for PC players.

The news that Apex was coming to Switch was first shared during the EA Play Live event on June 18, where they revealed the next stages of the game’s development. It finally put a host of rumors and leaks to bed since Apex’s debut back in 2019, as players wanted to immediately take the Arena with them on-the-go shortly after launch.

The news would have opened the game to expand its player count by millions, but Switch players will now have to wait a little longer after further delays were announced.

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date

Respawn confirmed that the new Switch port has been delayed until early 2021 after it was expected to arrive with the Steam version of the game.

“For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time,” Apex Game Director Chad Grenier confirmed, on October 23.

“This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out,” the Respawn dev continued, “Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year.”

Apex Legends will be on all the major consoles in early 2021.

While it is being delayed, he confirmed that it still arrive with all of the expected features, “of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.”

This won’t be the first time a major battle royale comes to Nintendo Switch. EA and Apex Legends are going to compete against Epic Games and Fortnite for the many battle royale fans on the platform.

The initial announcement was a longtime coming. Reports for a Nintendo Switch port have been around for about as long as Apex Legends has been released to the world.

In a 2019 interview only months after Apex’s release, Project lead at the time, Drew McCoy, said that the company knew a Nintendo port was on many people’s wishlist. Since then, it’s been a waiting game for Nintendo fans who have been waiting to get into the Arena.

There were a lot of questions revolving around the technical limitations of the Switch that would be a hurdle for a port, but the developers are now committed to releasing it early in 2021.

It’s unclear what the download size for the Switch version will be, so stay tuned to Dexerto for all the latest information on the upcoming Apex Legends port.
