Perfect Apex Legends buff would make Revenant even deadlier

Since Revenant’s explosive entrance in Season 4, the Synthetic Nightmare has been a somewhat underwhelming Legend in the Apex Games – but this buff could help him compete against the likes of Wraith and Pathfinder in no time.

Revenant made a dramatic entrance into the Apex Games, after assassinating Forge during an interview with Outlands Television host Lisa Stone.

After taking down Forge, the deadly simulacrum showcased a variety of abilities during the Assimilation cinematic trailer — hyping fans up for his debut in Season 4.

Revenant’s cinematic trailer hyped him up to be one of the most versatile Legends to-date.

However, fans were left disappointed when they finally got their hands on Revenant, due to his lacklustre ability set — which pales in comparison to some of the better ranked Legends.

Although, one Apex Legends player has drafted the ultimate Revenant buff which could allow the Synthetic Nightmare to compete with the likes of Wraith and Pathfinder.

The Reddit user has bumped the simulacrum’s Passive, Tactical and Ultimate ability while also swapping out one of their Passive perks.

After reading the feedback I got from my last post, I present to you some buffs for Revenant (Revised) from apexlegends

By swapping out Low Profile for Fortified, incoming bullet damage would be reduced 15%, while also not slowing Revenant down — a perk both Caustic and Gibraltar share.

Moreover, Dicephalon also recommended that the simulacrum’s ‘Death Totem’ Ultimate should be buffed significantly. Arguably the most important aspect of the buff, however, is the ability to spawn with 30 health points (as opposed to the current 1 HP granted).

This would counter the current Caustic meta, where the Toxic Trapper can place a Nox Gas Trap by the Death Totem to trigger when players respawn, killing any player that returns to the totem.

While the post received plenty of upvotes from the community, the ability to negate enemy pings (as part of Revenant’s Tactical buff) is something that wasn’t met with open arms.


Given that one of Apex Legends’ most attractive features is its non-verbal communication system, the ability to nullify that with the use of a Legend would be overpowered. And, as another Reddit user commented, would put players with microphones at a severe advantage.

That aside, Dicephalon’s Revenant buff concept would be a well-balanced adjustment and would give the Synthetic Nightmare a nudge in the right direction.

Apex Legends is adding a no-guns LTM in Season 7: Olympus Preview

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

New Olympus Preview LTM

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

The new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump into the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind. The first Ranked split will be on Olympus too, so if you’re a competitive player, this new LTM comes highly recommended.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously, that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
