The Season 6 launch trailer, released on August 6, confirmed the arrival of a new character Rampart, and gave us a brief look at the surroundings heading into the next chapter.

The teaser specifies that Season 6 is kicking off on 18 August, which is just under two weeks away. She is seen in the trailer operating a mounted machine gun, raining fire on the other legends in a stylish, reversed-time showing. That means players only have a little bit left in the current fifth season to finish everything up before it is over. From the description, we know her abilities will revolve around weaponry.

Another announcement involes a "Boosted Battle Pass", which will include exclusive items, including Legendary skins, Apex Packs, and more.

While nothing seemed to come out of the original teaser in Season 5, Apex fans have their hopes up, once again, that a new map could arrive in the next season.

A new season of Apex Legends wouldn't be complete without a new ranked season to go with it, and that is what will happen in Season 6. In addition to her, an SMG called the Volt will appear around the battlefield too. Players will be able to charge into battle with this energy SMG weapon that will pack quite a punch in combat.

Following the introduction of the World's Edge in Season 3, players have been playing on both the new arena and the classic Kings Canyon map.

Expert modder Rampart is joining the Games in Season 6. In one section, Bangalore shoots through a shield wall, likely deployed by Rampart.

Other than the new Legend, the most exciting thing coming to Apex Legends is the new weapon. Her tactical ability, Amped Cover, blocks incoming shots while amplifying the damage of outgoing shots.

Developer Respawn Entertaiworldtoptrendnt has but to reveal Rampart's full listing of skills, however we'll update this text after we know extra about her.
