An Apex Legends player came up with a clever buff idea for the much-maligned character Rampart, and many fans think it’s straight out of Rainbow Six Siege or Fortnite.
A universally loved aspect of Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends is the balance of the character pool, with a plethora of characters that allow players to adopt almost any playstyle and strategy. Of course, some legends fall to the bottom of the pyramid in terms of viability and popularity.
One of them is Rampart, the Season 6 legend known for her Sheila minigun and Amped Cover. While powerful in the right hands, Rampart’s natural defensive abilities and niche gear have resulted in her pick rates being among the lowest in the BR.
At the time of writing, she’s last in season 12 in terms of top pick legends.
However, a player’s buff idea could be just what she needs to progress as her usefulness and versatility will be bolstered.
The ability in question was swept by Redditor Petrocity, who asked, “What if she could block a door? Basically restoring a door”.
Attached was a picture of a restored door that Rampart fixed, giving her team a stronger position and an extra layer of defense.
Many players liked the suggestion, claiming it suited their existing skill set and playstyle. At the time of writing, it sits at just under 4,000 upvotes, suggesting there would be fairly broad support for its implementation.
Many also compared it to a Rainbow Six Siege or Fortnite feature; both games that allow for significant environmental destruction and restoration.
The earlier game even has an operator, Castle, whose entire unique ability relies on barricading doors with durable armor plates.
The strength of the door could also be used as a balancing factor by Respawn to ensure Rampart fits into the meta in a reasonable way.
It’s not likely to be added anytime soon, but Respawn has indicated in the past that they’re open to implementing fan ideas if they’re well thought out and reasonable. This seems to be both.
