With so many leaked characters discovered for Apex Legends, and only one added each season (so far), we take a look at the legends most likely to be arriving in Season 4.

Octane was the first ‘DLC’ character to be added, back in Season 1, followed by Wattson and Crypto in seasons 2 and 3 respectively.

So far, Respawn Entertainment have restricted themselves to adding only one new character per season, and they’ll likely keep this up, although there is some speculation that two or more legends could be added for the fourth season.

It’s worth noting that all of these legends are still technically in development, and the details we have on them come from data miners digging through the game files. All of this is subject to change, as things often do in game development.

15 unreleased legends have been leaked, but who will be added next?

Possible Season 4 legend: Rosie (Loba)

Since as early as Season 2, Rosie, also known as Loba, has been the favorite to be the Season 4 legend. Her character appeared to be the most complete in the game files, almost as complete as Crypto, who of course was added in Season 3.

It’s also possible that a developer teased Rosie, thanks to a Twitter post showing a motion capture actor believed to be working on Rosie’s character. The cane is the biggest hint.

Check out everything we know about Rosie, including her leaked abilities, here.

Rosie remains very likely to be added in Season 4, and it would also make sense to have another female character added, as we’ve had two males already. However, there are some other names also possible.

Possible Season 4 Legend: Forge

Forge is a late entry to the list of leaked legends, only added to the game files in the v3.1 update in early November. However, he has immediately become a front-runner for Apex Legends Season 4.

This is because, in the game files, he is labeled as ‘season4chars’ in the code – the plural also indicating there could be more than one.

An image was also included in the leaked game files, first revealed by data miner Shrugtal, believed to be Forge.

Rosie is still arguably more ‘complete’ in development than Forge, but the code is a big clue that he could be one of two or more new legends added for the next season.

Possible Season 4 legend: Revenant

Next, we have a character who has already appeared in Apex Legends: Revenant. The menacing voice who commanded the Shadowfall LTM in the Season 3 Fight or Fright event was none other than Revenant himself.

He was recently updated in the game files too, with a nickname change to ‘Synthetic Nightmare’, and he initially had two forms or ‘stances’, regular and shadow, but the latter was removed.

Respawn Entertainment

Given that Revenant has already appeared prominently in the game, it’s not an unreasonable assumption that he could be the next legend added as a playable character in Season 4.

Other characters coming to Apex Legends?

That’s our big three, but there are plenty of other names who could make an appearance. Firstly, we have Nomad, who was leaked at around the same time as Rosie and is also believed to be very far along in development. However, things seem to have gone quiet on this character since.

There’s also Conduit, who was added to the game files at the same time as Forge. It’s unclear how far along in development this legend is though.

We have a full list of all leaked legends and their abilities, and for all we know it could be any one of these characters added for the new season. We simply have to wait to find out for sure.

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. 

Just some ideas because her current passive is not that great from apexlegends

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.
