An Apex Legend developer took to Reddit to answer a request to buff the passive ability for Rampart.
Introduced in Season 6, Rampart is a legend with a dedication to being proficient with heavy weaponry. Her ability set allows her to throw down pieces of cover that amplify projectiles and block bullets.
Ramparts whole kit centers around the use of LMGs and even rewards the player with a high-powered minigun called “Sheila” that you can use as her ultimate and mount on the deployable cover.
In a Reddit post, user BottlecapYT, showcases her abilities in a well-edited video where he fortifies the Winter Express and wreaks havoc on an entire server. (Video below)
In the comments of this video, Reddit user GrookeyGang484 asked, “Hey Daniel, I just wanted to ask something about Rampart. Her passive NEEDS a buff and I wanted to know if a buff like that for her is possible.
“I thought maybe, at most, reworking it so that all guns that have hop-ups automatically have said hop-ups equipped in ramparts hands, or at the very least have Modded Loader carry over to snipers. Just wondering:)”
Apex Developer Daniel Klein responded to the question, saying that he had, “Two thoughts about Rampart’s passive.” First, he reiterated that Rampart is going to stay an LMG-centric legend. Since this is the case, the state of LMGs will always impact her viability.
Klein went on to say, “Finding the right tuning on it isn’t easy. There’s a tuning level where we make it so strong that it becomes mandatory to find and play with an LMG on Rampart, which I think would be sad. I think there’s room for a little more power in there, but it’ll never be a character-defining passive.”
It’s a possibility there could be a buff coming, but it would be minimal and not likely anytime soon. If anything, we may see a buff to LMGs as an indirect Rampart buff.
Seer’s abilities discussed at EA Play for Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence
Apex Legends upcoming Season 10 will feature a brand new Legend called “Seer,” who may even give Bloodhound a run for his money.
Apex Legends revealed further details on Season 10: Emergence at EA Play recently, giving players an insight into how the new Legend Seer will operate.
Season 9: Legacy has been a great success for Respawn, introducing a brand new way to play the battle royale with Arenas and expanding the roster with arguably the most balanced Legend they have introduced since the launch of Seasons, Valkyrie.
As well as enjoying the current event, Thrillseekers, which saw a new Arena’s map enter their game, players have also been getting their first details on Season 10: Emergence, especially the new Legend, Seer.
On July 22, EA held their annual showcase event, EA Play Live. As well as a variety of their games being showcased, such as Battlefield and Fifa, Apex Legends used this event to reveal the first official Apex Legends Season 10 trailer.
Although this wasn’t a gameplay trailer, it still provided a load of hints and details concerning Apex Legends’ new character Seer, including how his abilities will work.
As well as this, after the trailer had finished, one of Respawn’s developers provided even more information on Seer, where fans were given an explanation of his Passive, Tactical, and Ultimate abilities.
Apex Legends Seer abilities
Much like Bloodhound, Seer is a Recon Legend who will be mainly focused on gaining intel on enemies with a stealthy playstyle. Seer’s kit is all about tracking the opposition, but it seems the abilities are much more pinpoint than Bloodhound’s scan.
Apex Legends Seer: Passive ability
Seer will gain access to a heartbeat sensor when aiming down sights and be able to track nearby enemies. Although there is currently no representation of this in-game, perhaps players can expect something similar to Call of Duty’s famous Heartbeat Sensor tactical equipment.
After sensing an enemy’s heartbeat, Seers tactical ability will allow him to send out his Moth Drones to track them down and reveal their position.
Finally, Seer’s Ultimate ability will send out a heap of drones that will combine to create a sphere. Seer will be able to sense and track anyone who is moving fast within this sphere, creating an interesting gameplay mechanic, which may cause teams to alter their movements in order to stay undetected.
Although we don’t currently have any official gameplay of these abilities, the reveal trailer and descriptions of the abilities do a great job at giving players an idea of how Seer will work in-game.
Make sure to check back on this page as more information is released regarding Seer and Season 10, as it seems on July 25, we will be getting our first gameplay trailer.

The EA Play Live 2021 gave fans an exciting first look at the upcoming content for various titles like Battlefield 2042 and FIFA 22. Apex Legends fans were treated to the Season 10 launch trailer and more.
One of the new reveals from Respawn was the Jumpmaster gun charm. As the name implies, this item will show the “You are Jumpmaster” pop-up that you’ll often see at the start of matches.
Here’s how you can get it for completely free.
How to get the free Apex Legends Jumpmaster gun charm
The Jumpmaster gun charm was given as a free reward to Apex Legends players who tuned into the EA Play Live presentation. If you caught the show, then the item will already be added to your account.
If you weren’t able to catch the conference, then don’t worry. After fixing some technical issues, Respawn shipped an update that will grant the weapon charm to anyone that has their EA account linked with Twitch.
How to link your EA account with Twitch
First thing’s first, you’ll need to make sure that your Gamertag or PSN ID is linked to your EA account. You’ll need to have that before you can link it to Twitch and get the Jumpmaster gun charm.
- Go to Twitch and select sign in/create an account
- Input your EA account info on the “Connect with Twitch” screen and click “Next”
- Enter your security code and click “Log In”
- Click “Yes, link them” to link both accounts.
Once that’s done, you’ll get a notification letting you know that both accounts have been successfully linked. You’ll now be able to get your hands on the Jumpmaster gun charm in Apex Legends.
We don’t know for sure how long this charm will be available to redeem, but you can check for it the next time you log back in. There were also various other things for Apex players to get excited about in the event.
The game director gave us some more details about the new Season 10 Legend Seer. They talked about the character’s abilities, which include a heartbeat sensor that you can use while aiming down sights.

Monster Energy collab skins & cosmetics leaked for Apex Legends
The Monster Energy collab will bring some new cosmetics and skins to Apex Legends, and they’ve now been leaked.
Respawn is always adding new content to Apex Legends, and some new leaks have revealed cosmetics and skins that are connected to the upcoming Monster Energy collaboration.
A new collaboration with ALGS, Monster Energy will bring some brand-new cosmetics and skins to the battle royale. Now, some new leaks have revealed the additions that will be in the collab.
The collaboration will take place from August 1 to December 31, 2021. During this time, you’ll be able to purchase select cans of Monster Energy that carry promotional codes which can be redeemed in September.
Each code will grant you access to one of the following cosmetics:
- Octane skin: Abstract Splash
- Wraith skin: Energy Transfer
- Havoc skin: Electric Momentum
- Volt skin: Vapour Trail
- Fuse Banner: Aces High
- Wattson Banner: High Voltage
- Octane Banner: The Formula
- Holo-spray: Charged Up
- Holo-spray: Energy
- Holo-spray: Free your speed
With Wraith, Octane, and two energy weapons getting unique new skins, there are quite a few neat items for you to collect. However, the bad news is that these are only of the ‘Rare’ variety.
In addition to these cosmetics, a few players also discovered High Energy badges after the 9.1 update. These will reportedly unlock higher-tiers depending on the number of codes that you redeem.
These will level up in tiers as you redeem more codes. While there aren’t any legendary or epic skins in this collab, you’ll still have some new activities to try out until Season 10 goes live.
We currently don’t know what exactly you’ll have to do in order to unlock each of these cosmetics, but we’ll be sure to update this article with that information once it becomes available.
