The Apex Legends Revenant Trailer: Abilities and More
Debuting as the new ‘villain’ of Apex Legends, Revenant is a murderous rogue robot with a vendetta against Hammond Robotics; the corporation which sponsored Forge to enter the Apex Games, and which is responsible for the Season 4 World’s Edge map changes. Revenant’s first ability in-game is a Tactical ability called Silence. This allows him to throw a grenade-like device which will totally disable the abilities of all enemies in the area. However, the effect only lasts for 10 seconds.
Revenant also excels when it comes to mobility and flanking, thanks to his Passive ability ‘Stalker’. Not only does this ability mean that he moves faster than other Legends while crouched, but he can also climb higher up walls. As a result, he can strike from unexpected directions, especially in urban areas where there are plenty of multi-storey buildings. The most significant part of Revenant’s toolset, however, is of course his Ultimate ability; Death Totem.
This Ultimate allows Revenant to create a ‘Death Totem’ on the ground where he indicates. This diamond-shaped device prevents him and nearby allies from dying. If they would die, they are instead teleported back to the Totem. The effect of the Death Totem does, of course, have a timer, which can be seen on the bottom of the screen. Furthermore, other players can see that the effect is active, as affected players are temporarily wreathed in a haze of burning smoke.
