Rampart's arriving in Season 6 to give things a little boost.
Respawn Entertainment continued their trend of producing fantastic trailers with the Season 6 teaser which was brief yet so stylish and foot-tapping that it hardly even mattered.
So far, Respawn has confirmed Season 6's new character is Rampart and its new weapon is the Volt SMG. As with its previous seasons, the free-to-play, first-person shooter will welcome another Legend to the fore plus a bevy of new features. Apex Legends season 6 is titled Boosted, and will bring with it a new crafting system. There will be a new ranked season with rewards and tiers for players to climb through, but again, that's all we know about it.
As Season 5 has been winding down, players have been spotting hints throughout the map for what was to come.
Our new weapon is the Volt SMG, which originates in the Titanfall series.
While details are still a bit scarce at this time regarding what the crafting system will be like, we know that it will allow you to make something more to your liking.
Another new piece of tech on display is a semi-transparent wall, which the trailer shows Bangalore using as cover while firing her weapon through it. The battle royale already has an energy assault rifle, LMG, and sniper rifle. But while the new Legend may still be an enigma to "Apex Legends" players, her profile - plus the massive gun that she's holding - certainly approves the claim that Rampart has the "ballistics" to back up her reputation. I still maintain it's the best battle royale game on the market, with strong characters and an overarching plot that wrap up a package of excellent gunplay and movement into something so unique in an industry flooded by cheap imitators and knock-offs. Stay tuned for more details in the coming days about all of the goodies that Season 6 will include and how Rampart will work in combat.
