New Apex Legends character Rampart bringing shields and turrets to the Apex Games

The genius modder is ready for the Apex Games

Apex Legends’ newest character was revealed last week and we finally know what she does. On Sunday, Respawn revealed Rampart’s full kit and all her abilities.

Rampart is an underground modder in the world of Apex Legends, which means she’s also got the tech expertise to give herself a few impressive advantages. Rampart’s Passive ability allows her to have faster reload time and increased ammo capacity in any LMG she’s carrying — or her own mini gun.

With her Tactical Ability, Rampart can build shield walls for her allies — or anyone else who steps behind them — to use. These walls will block bullets coming from one side and amp bullets being shot from behind them, which should make it extra strong for locking down an area with your squad. Speaking of locking things down, Rampart’s Ultimate ability builds a mounted mini gun called Sheila with a very high rate of fire and a very slow reload speed.

Rampart’s abilities

  • Tactical Ability — Amped Cover: Build a crouch-cover wall, which deploys a full-cover amped wall that blocks incoming shots and amps outgoing shots
  • Passive Ability — Modded Loader: Increased magazine capacity and faster reloads/recharge when using LMGs and the minigun
  • Ultimate Ability — Place a mounted machine gun that anyone can use. High ammo capacity, long reload time

Rampart is set to be released alongside Apex Legends season 6, which is scheduled to start on Aug. 18.
