Revenant is set to make his way into the Apex Legends’ universe during Season 4, and fans are already bringing the deadly simulacrum to life.
Apex Legends’ long-awaited Season 4 trailer provided fans with a plethora of information on Revenant. The Synthetic Nightmare was previously pivotal to the ‘Fight or Fright’ Halloween event, where they pulled the strings during the Shadowfall game mode.
Fans now have a clearer picture of the mysterious character’s roots and what their intentions are, following the ‘Assimilation’ trailer.
With that in mind, a cosplayer under the alias ‘nurbzwax’ has created a chilling take on the former Syndicate mercenary.
Complete with Revenant’s stone-cold robotic iris, the cosplayer has paid remarkably close attention to detail, given the scarce information available.
Nurbz has also included Revenant’s contours around the eyes and on their forehead, to ensure that the Legend appears like they’ve been plucked straight out of the in-game files.

The cosplayer captioned their first post, stating: “As soon as I saw this guy, I just had to try and do makeup of him! The short for him was so cool and I watched it at least five times… So excited for Season 4!”
Nurbz’ take on the Synthetic Nightmare is all the more impressive considering the obvious absence of close-up 3D renders — since the character hasn’t even been released yet!
While they admitted that the eyes and symbol were edited into the design, there is no denying that the final product is as close to the mark as it gets.
Fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Revenant into the Apex Games, which is locked in for February 4 — although some players have expressed concerns over the size of the Legend’s hitbox.
Until then, nurbzwax’s cosplay is the closest we’ll get to the real thing, unless Respawn hit us with another assimilation-themed trailer to add to Revenant’s lore.
