Rampart in Apex Legends

Apex Legends players have discovered a neat little trick with Rampart’s abilities that allows them to trap, and then annihilate camping Caustic enemies.

There is a large variety of unique and colorful characters for you to choose from in Apex Legends. Caustic’s ability allows him to flood an entire room with gas, which can incapacitate all of its inhabitants.

However, some players tend to abuse this by camping in houses, and then using this ability to take out their opponents in a single room or closed space. This is difficult to counter, but a few players have found a way to do so with the help of Rampart’s abilities.

Rampart in Apex Legends

Ever since her introduction in Season 6, Rampart is a legend that has struggled in terms of her popularity. This is because of her abilities only being helpful within specific conditions, so the devs have buffed her up in recent updates.

Despite this, she is extremely proficient with heavy weaponry, and her Sheila minigun can be used to dish out some serious pain. One player has discovered a way to use her abilities to counter Caustic’s gas traps.

Reddit user rryyxn posted a clip in the Apex Legends subreddit, showcasing their encounter with a Caustic enemy that was camping in a house with gas traps. Rather than going in after him, the player tried out a much smarter strategy.

Instead, they locked the Caustic inside and threw down Rampart’s Amped Cover across the door before pulling out the Sheila minigun.

The mounted turret was able to destroy the door, and the Caustic opponent tried running across Rampart’s line of sight. However, this was a fruitless effort as rryyxn maintained the upper hand and took him out.

Rampart veterans might have tried out this tactic before, but it’s still an impressive feat to see in action. “You’re living the dream of all Rampart players” commented Scipio_Wright.

Certain campers might try to stay out of the turret’s way, but you can still find a way to trap them by placing it in the correct position. Be sure to try this tactic out the next time you spot a camping Caustic.

Apex Legends devs tease Valkyrie videos on Instagram

Apex Legends developers have released some inconspicuous videos on Instagram teasing gameplay of the new Legend arriving in Legacy, Valkyrie.

apex legends tease valkyrie videos

Since the official reveal of Apex Legends’ latest character, Valkyrie, the developers have released some interesting videos over on their Instagram page.

In the most recent news for Apex Legends, fans finally got to see the latest Legend, Valkyrie arriving in Season 9: Legacy.

It seems the developers were feeling extra generous, as they also decided to tease some in-game footage of Valkyrie, showing off some aspects of her kit and a potential finisher.

Apex Legends Valkyrie

Respawn Entertainment released another Stories from the Outlands short over on their YouTube channel yesterday, which was met by excitement from fans. Players also got details on the new season, including the name, theme, and even weapon coming to Apex Legends.

Respawn wasn’t done there. Over on their Instagram page, they also released three glitchy surveillance footage videos of Valkyrie gameplay.

The Apex Legends community has been breaking down these videos, trying to understand what they show. Dataminers GarretLeaks and Biast12 have potentially identified what some of these videos are presenting.

The first video is entitled “CAMERA 9: OPERATIONAL” and it is tough to make out exactly what is going on. With the help of Biast12, it seems this video could be hiding one of Valkyrie’s finishers, called “the After Burner.”

The second video is hard to make out; however, the video becomes clearer with the community’s help. As we know, one of Valkyrie’s abilities is her VTOL Jets, which allow her to hover in the air much like the Northstar Titan from Titanfall.

This is exactly what Biast12 believes this video is showing, while GarretLeaks thinks it could potentially be her Cluster Missiles. Towards the end of the clip, we see dark streaks that look similar to what you would see behind a missile.

The final clip is also very interesting, as it could be one of Valkyrie’s finishers, but one that dataminers haven’t identified yet.

This gameplay clip could also be her ultimate ability, which sees her take to the skies and redeploy either on her own or with her team, which would make sense as you can clearly see the fire coming out of her jets towards the end.

It’s hard to know exactly what’s going on in these videos focused on Valkyrie, but it’s great to see Respawn putting so much effort into their Legend reveals, increasing the hyper for Season 9: Legacy, which is set to release on March 4th.

Apex Legends: How to activate the Season 9 Arena teaser

Apex Legends data miners have found out how players can activate a new Season 9 teaser. Here’s how to see it for yourself.

Published

Apex Legends Season 9 Teaser Arena

The Apex Legends Season 9 teaser is now live, revealing the mystery behind the mysterious platform in the Firing Range.

After the halfway split for Season 8, players noticed a stranged platform implemented on the left side of the Firing Range map.

For weeks players were unaware of its purpose, but finally, the mystery has been uncovered and is associated with the new upcoming Arena mode.

Season 9 Teaser Arena

Data miner @GarretLeaks was among the few who leaked how players can activate the button found on the Firing Range platform.

GarretLeaks has even created a step by step guide of how players can experience the Season 9 Arena teaser, which is available now:

  • Step 1: Collect keycard from care packages
  • Step 2: Find Holosprays scattered around Kings Canyon
  • Step 3: Find Holosprays scattered around Olympus
  • Step 4: Press the phone in the lobby and listen to the audio
  • Step 5: Press the button on the Firing Range platform and wait for the ship

The Corrupted Keycards are now live and available to pick up from Care Packages in-game for both Kings Canyon and Olympus. Players will then be able to scan the Holosprays and activate the teaser in the Firing Range.

Dataminer @Shrugtal released images of where players will be able to find these Holosprays, which are located in various locations across the two maps.

You can scan multiple Holosprays in one match and even scan all three over multiple matches. It seems the Holosprays will spawn in all the locations highlighted in Shrugtal’s image.

Along with this, fellow data miner @Biast12 has also released a video showing what happens after activating the button in the Firing Range.

The video shows Biast boarding a ship after activating the button. Biast arrives at a new location where another button awaits, which activates an elevator. This then takes you into a small arena where a massive hollo of future Legend Ash is shown along with a voice line that states, “The Arena awaits.”

This is clearly a teaser for the upcoming 3v3 mode ‘Arena,’ which will be arriving in Season 9. However, this is also a teaser for the future legend, Ash. Although Ash will likely be arriving at a later Season – more like Season 10 – it does confirm that she will be arriving sooner than later.

In fact, it’s not the first time an announcer for a game mode has eventually become a playable Legend. Back in Season 3, the Shadow Fall game mode saw Revenant as the announcer, who later became a playable Legend in Season 4.

If this stays true to the format, Ash could be the new Legend for Season 10, after being an announcer for the previous season much like the introduction of Revenant. Players will be able to activate this teaser towards the end of Season 8.

How War Games could change Apex Legends forever

The individual modes presented in the latest Apex Legends event, War Games, could potentially change the battle royale forever.

War Games could change apex legends forever

Apex Legends latest event War Games introduced a variety of new ways to play the battle royale that could change the game forever.

Like previous events we’ve seen in Apex Legends, if Respawn Entertainment sees enough value in some of the new modes introduced through the War Games event, we could also see them make their way into the base game.

War Games went live on April 13th and although it has encountered some problems, the event has introduced some interesting ideas that many have enjoyed so far.

War Games skins in Season 8

War Games got off to a rocky start, having to replace Second Chance and more recently, Auto Banners due to unexpected bugs and problems.

However, apart from these issues, players and those in the community seem to have enjoyed the modes so far, and there is now a question of how these modes could be introduced into the base game, changing Apex Legends forever.

The War Games mini-event could change Apex Legends in a variety of ways by implementing lesser aspects of the individual modes presented in War Games.

This isn’t the first time Respawn Entertainment has done this, as both the Evo Shield and Mirage ultimate change came from their own Limited Time Modes, as a sort of public playtest.

Dummies Big Day Out LTM

Popular Apex Legends YouTuber iTemp proposed that the devs could potentially introduce less extreme versions of some of the War Games modes in the base game. The YouTuber suggested that Second Chance could potentially come into the game as a rare item, or token, that players can find and use upon their first elimination.

Unlike in War Games, not every player would have this token and it would have to be very rare to obtain, otherwise, there is no doubt it will be met by complaints and outrage by the community.

One of the War Games modes that we are yet to see is Killing Time, which reduces round time as players die. This could be an interesting addition to the game, potentially helping those public lobbies that feel empty and lack fights.

Whatever happens in the future of Apex Legends, keep it locked on Charlie INTEL for updates, and check out our article on Apex Legends Legacy.
