Handy Apex Legends tip makes finding Rampart’s ultimate much easier

Ever been caught out by a Rampart ultimate while rotating to the next safe zone? Well, there’s a simple tip that every Apex Legends player should know about being able to spot it on the map. 

With the start of Season 6, Rampart was finally added to Apex Legends’ ever-growing roster of characters – adding some unique abilities to the battle royale. 

The defensive legend has a passive that increases magazine size by 15% and decreases reload time by 25%, a tactical in Amped Cover that lets her through down a small wall and shoot through it to give her weapons a small boost.

However, it’s her ultimate – the mini-gun she calls Sheila – that really packs a punch. The deployable mini-gun can rip through enemies who step into its crosshairs, but if you don’t want to get caught, there’s a simple tip to keep in your back pocket.

How to find active Rampart ultimates in Apex Legends

Whenever a Sheila is placed throughout a match – be it on World’s Edge or Kings Canyon – a small icon will appear on your map that indicates where it is. 

It’s only small, yes, but you can see the outline of a white minigun – as Reddit user Ornography points out. That means that you can plot its position on the map and find a way to either avoid its line of fire or head there and see if there is a team to take down. 

There’s no way of telling if a team is still in the area of the minigun, so you will just have to chance it. But knowing where Sheila has been placed should help make few decisions a little easier for you. 

Obviously it’s not a tip that will guarantee you wins, but it’s better off being able to know if a Rampart is waiting for you at a chokepoint than going in blind. 

Respawn could tweak the way it works moving forward – saying removing the icon from the map after a set period of time – but as of now, that’s not the case.

Some of the rarest skins in Apex Legends are making a return for the annual Black Friday sale, including Wraith’s famous Airship Assassin skin, cosmetics returning from Legendary Hunt bundles, and more.

It was heavily speculated in the runup to Thanksgiving week that Wraith’s fan-favorite skin would be returning for the second year in a row, and the shop update on November 24 confirmed those leaks and rumors.

Wraith isn’t the only hero getting some of her old skins up for sale again though, Octane’s highly sought-after Jester look will also be back, along with several from the Legendary Hunt themed event all the way back from Season 1.

For those who don’t know, Wraith’s Airship Assassin skin is a recolor of the pink Void Specialist skin, so you’ll need to unlock both of them in order to rock it.
