An Apex Legends player made an ironic post showing how "useful" Revenant's ultimate is or rather, how lackluster it is compared to other Legends. While Revenant looked great on paper, and his introduction cinematic showed off a killing machine, Revenant is far from that character.
Revenant has some modest abilities and his ultimate might be the worst of the bunch.
- The totem takes one second to create, lasts 30 seconds, and it has 100 Health.
- Both squadmates and enemies can use the totem one time each to turn themselves into a shadow for 20 seconds.
- The totem has a max radius of 60 meters. Leaving this radius for more than one second turns shadows back to normal. It is highlighted with a visible blue ring around the death totem.
Basically it can be a self-revive for teams, but it's clunky and most fights will be pulled outside of the range rendering the ultimate useless. So Redditor Torchic-The-Pyro decided to show the community another way Revenant ultimate can be used. Near the edge of the map, one of his teammates had fallen off the map, and his box couldn't be reached. So the Revenant activated the Totem, jumped down, grabbed the box and finished falling off the cliff. He returned to the Totem alive and was then able to revive his teammate.
Probably not what Respawn Entertainment planned when making the ultimate.
