An Apex Legends trailer released Tuesday shows how Rampart, the newest member of Apex Legends' ever-growing cast, made her way to the Apex Games.
The trailer, which is part of Apex Legends' Stories from the Outlands series, begins with Rampart hanging out in her gun shop with Bangalore and Gibraltar. The three banter as friends before the trailer cuts to night time.
Apex Legends Trailer Shows Rampart's Origin Story
Rampart, real name Ramya Parekh, is still working in her shop when a gang appears behind her. It's unclear what they want, but the confrontation quickly turns violent. Rampart manages to fight them all off, but asks a defeated enemy with blue hair about someone she refers to as "big sister." The big sister in question then appears in the doorway, wearing a cracked mask with one glowing eye, before a robot drops in from the ceiling and opens fire on Rampart.
She retreats to her counter, where she deploys a one-way shield and Sheila, her massive gatling gun, to destroy the robot. But while she's distracted, the blue-haired woman appears behind her and knocks her out. The attackers then set her shop on fire.
As the shop burns, Apex Games coordinator Kuben Blisk appears and offers her a chance to compete in the games.
Rampart will become a playable Legend when Apex Legends Season 6 launches Aug. 18.
