Apex Developer Promises Revenant Buffs 'He'll 'Climb to the Top'

Apex Legends' murderous robot Revenant hasn't been in a very powerful position in the game's meta game for some time now, prompting Apex Legends lead game designer Daniel Z. Klein to promise buffs are on the way.

Writing in an AMA on the Apex Legends subreddit, Klein said Revenant wasn't in a terrible place, but could use with some beefing up.

"Revenant's still weak and not particularly popular," Klein wrote. "We have a set of changes we're trying out internally at the moment and they feel fun and fine, but they'll probably not move the needle on power a lot. That may be fine! So long as people playing as him / against him have fun, numbers are fake anyway. And while I can't give you any details on the buffs we're trying out, I can tell you he'll certainly climb to the top."

Without more details from Klein, it's hard to know how the team plans to buff Revenant. His parting comment about climbing could be a literal hint suggesting a higher climbing distance for Revenant, but it's just as likely to be a reference to general buffs.

Klein didn't give a time frame for the Revenant buffs. It's possible they could arrive as early as Apex Legends Season 10, which is expected to launch Aug. 3.
