With Apex Legends Season 6 on its way, and Respawn dropping some major in-game hints and teasers, it’s time to look at who is expected to be the new Legend: Rampart.

The name ‘Rampart’ was first mentioned in the original character leaks for Apex Legends, back in February 2019. However, it was unclear what they looked like or what their abilities were.

Since then, leaks and data mines have revealed much more, but only recently have we started to build up a full picture of who this Legend is/will be. First of all, this image that was floating around about Rampart has been pretty much debunked:

This was the image most often used for Rampart, but it’s unlikely it’s actually what they look like at all.

Who is Rampart?

Thanks to data miners including That1MiningGuy, Biast12 and Shrugtal, we now know a lot more about this potential new character.

And, in a twist, it looks like Rampart is actually a female character, rather than male. Our first teasers for her are related to the paintball hop-ups which are expected to be added to the Always be Closing Evolved LTM on August 11.

As explained by Shrugtal, Season 6 teasers are starting to appear on the current maps, with one spray-painted ‘All Hail Shiela’ – which could possibly be Rampart’s real first name. Shrugtal explains more in his YouTube video:

The icon previously thought to be another leaked Legend, Nova, Shrugtal now believes is “almost certainly Rampart.”

Nova was a totally new leak that hadn’t been seen before, and there was very little to go on, so possibly some confusion arose. This female character features a Bindi dot on her forehead, and combined with her complexion indicates possibly Indian heritage.

This could tie in with the paint theme for Rampart, as the festival of color, Holi, is a Hindu festival.

This image is now believed to be Rampart, not ‘Nova’.

Respawn has now started to release teasers of their own, sharing a voice message, on August 5, that is seemingly meant for this new character.

The brief audio clip was addressed to the “lovely lady Parekh,” which is a common Indian surname, and talks about a pistol that she has modded.

This modded weapon, along with many skins tagged with an ‘R’ in recent Apex seasons, have seemingly been teasing Rampart and Apex fans also suggested that the voice could be Lifeline’s mother. You can find the full transcription here.

The Apex Legends devs have also been sharing paint-themed teasers on their Instagram, adding to the hype ahead of the engineer’s eventual arrival.

What are Rampart’s abilities?

It’s possible these abilities have changed in development, but the most up to date leaked abilities we have for the character are:

  • Amped Cover: Build cover with an upper barrier that blocks incoming shots and boosts the damage of outgoing shots.
  • Emplaced HMG: Place a mounted machine gun that anyone can use. High ammo capacity, long reload time.
  • Fixer: Swapping to melee equips a wrench players can use to repair structures.
  • Cover Fire: Firing from the Amped Cover overcharges your weapon damage.
  • Gunner: Machine guns have increased magazine capacity and reload faster.

The ‘fixer’ ability is probably old and no longer in use, possibly created for a previous version of Apex Legends, before it’s battle royale days.

Season 6 is expected to launch on August 18, so we will find out for sure just before the new season drops, when Respawn starts to showcase more teasers to ramp up the excitement and suspense.

The Apex Legends Champion Edition bundle is bringing a slew of skins, exclusive weapon charms, and more in Season 7. Here’s everything you need to know from the price to the release date.

Previous Apex Legends editions have included skins and cosmetics, plus Apex Coins. The Champion Edition goes a step further however, as it will unlock all the post-launch Legends leading up to Season 7.

This is perfect if you’re just starting out in Apex Legends and want to get caught up, and it will also fit in nicely with the game’s release on new platforms like Switch and Steam later in the year.

Apex Legends Champion Edition price

The appropriately-titled Champion Edition, includes eight items, including some awesome skins, a weapon charm, and more, all for $39.99. While that is a pretty steep price compared to previous bundle editions, EA says what is included is worth $100, so relatively, this is a great deal.
