Unreleased Apex Legends character Vantage was uncovered in a huge leak in March, but what are their abilities, and are they the Season 13 Legend?

With every seasonal update, Respawn adds another character to the ever-growing Apex Legends roster and Season 13 will certainly be no different.

While some players are happy to patiently wait for an official announcement, leakers and data miners do their best to identify clues and information ahead of time.

Although this usually involves trawling through the game files, occasionally an insider will gain access to the dev’s version of the game, giving them a huge amount of content to reveal.

Well, that’s exactly what happened in March, and along with eight other unreleased Legends, Vantage the Survival Sniper was unveiled.

Season 13 is expected to release in early May.

When it comes to lore, we know nothing about Vantage as they haven’t been mentioned by any other characters in the past.

However, at first, clues suggested that the Legend was called Hawk, but major leaks in March appeared to show that Respawn changed their name to Vantage.

Despite this, it’s worth noting that they’re still in development, so it’s possible that Vantage won’t be their final name, as Respawn often uses placeholder titles ahead of release.

When it comes to gameplay, the major leak that was posted to the ApexUncovered subreddit in March showcased all of Vantage’s abilities.

It’s worth noting that the abilities and animations in the clip could have changed since this was recorded, it’s even possible some of them have been scrapped, so take the leak with a pinch of salt.

When it comes to their kit, Vantage is a long-range specialist with access to a custom sniper rifle, that even provides a damage buff for their teammates.

Will Vantage be added in Season 13 of Apex Legends?

However, with May fast approaching, it’s likely the devs will begin dropping hints for the next character in the near future.
