Developers Respawn Entertainment have released another teaser for the second season of Apex Legends, giving players a hint at what they can expect. 

With the highly anticipated Season 2 of Apex Legends fast approaching, players are getting more and more excited about the flurry of new content and changes coming to the game.

Despite a lot of information about the new season having already been announced by Respawn, there is still much that’s been left unclear, giving the developers at least some things to tease and drop hints about. 

The latest teaser came on June 25, in the form of a tweet that contained some sort of ‘Service Report’ for the Repulsor Tower location on the map.

The teaser identifies an issue with the location, stating that there are “wildlife intrusions into arena. Standard wear and tear.” 

Around the same time that this teaser was tweeted out, the Repulsor Tower was turned on in-game, with its numerous wings starting to rotate at various speeds.

This is yet another hint that something big is likely set to go down at the location, although players will have to probably wait until the launch of Season 2 to see exactly what that is. 

What does this all mean?

Of course, in some ways, these teasers and hints raise just as many questions as they answer, with players wondering what exactly Respawn have in store for the start of the next season.

There are some definite parallels that exist between these teasers and leaks that have surfaced over the past few weeks, which also point to the Repulsor Tower being involved in some sort of in-game event.

According to game files dug up by data-miners and Apex enthusiasts, the Repulsor Tower will be ‘hacked’ at the end of Season 1, causing it to let a lot of water and creatures into King’s Canyon, leading to significant changes to the map.

These files suggest that a yet-to-be-announced Legend named Crypto will be doing the hacking with his powerful laptop, leading many to believe that he could also make his debut in Season 2, alongside the already-confirmed Wattson

Season 2 of Apex Legends is expected to launch on July 2, 2019, and will include a brand new battle pass, the newest Legend Wattson, the long-awaited L-STAR weapon, and much more.

Apex Legends Rampart buff would make her unbeatable in early fights

An Apex Legends player has come up with an interesting buff concept for Rampart that would change her passive ability and immediately make her one of the best legends in the game.

When Rampart was first introduced at the start of Apex Legends Season 6, many fans raised eyebrows at her abilities – especially the mounted machine gun, Sheila, as it was something the game hadn’t seen before.

After her initial burst in popularity, the defensive legend has slowly slipped down the popularity standings. You’ll still see her in matches, of course, but she isn’t as well used as she previously was. 

That comes, in part, to the tweaks made to other leagues with the Season 7 update. Rampart wasn’t buffed as much as, say, Loba was and fans would like to see her given a boost – with some coming up with their own, interesting, concepts for a buff.

Rampart’s arrival in Apex Legends was succesful right away, but she’s fallen away since.

The new idea of which comes from Reddit user Fetzenschaedl, who instead of changing of Ultimate or Tactical, instead focused on the character’s passive. 

In Fetzenschaedl’s idea for a buff, Rampart’s passive would go one of two ways. Firstly, she could extend her additional ammo carrying capacity to other types rather than just focusing on LMGs and Heavy ammo.

However, in the other part – and this is where it gets really interesting – the Redditor suggests that Rampart could be able to pick up a weapon that uses a hop-up, and have a hop-up attached right away. Say you drop in and pick up a Wingman right away, it would have either Skullpiercing Rounds or Quickdraw attachment right away.

The latter might seem incredibly powerful, but in terms of Loba’s character, it does make sense. She is all about upgrading and modifying weapons, after all. 

Yet, it might be a little too powerful for Respawn’s liking, especially as it’d make Loba a supremely powerful early game character. So, we’ll just have to wait and see as to what changes they cook up themselves.
