Respawn Entertainment announced the newest Apex Legends character, Vantage, on Aug. 4 ahead of the release of Apex Legends: Hunted.

"Born to a wrongfully-convicted criminal who gave birth to her alone on the barren ice planet Págos, she learned from an early age one simple truth: everything wants to kill you. As she makes her debut in Apex Legends: Hunted, Vantage has grown into the ultimate survivalist and an expert sharp shooter," Respawn Entertainment said in a press release.

Apex Legends Vantage Abilities

Here's the full list of Vantage's abilities in Apex Legends:

  • Passive - Spotter’s Lens: Using her Spotter’s Lens to read tactical information on enemy squads at a distance, Vantage always has the upper hand with critical intel like Legend name, Shield rarity, team size and range.
  • Tactical - Echo Relocation: Vantage’s companion Echo is at the ready to help her reposition herself in a fight. Using her modified jetpack and targeting system, Vantage can launch herself towards Echo’s position and take the high ground.
  • Ultimate - Sniper’s Mark: There’s nowhere to hide from Vantage’s custom sniper rifle, which reveals enemies with its scope and with its ammunition: a successful hit highlights opposing squads for 10 seconds accompanied by a diamond marker, and damage scales up with each hit.

Apex Legends Vantage Release Date

Apex Legends: Hunted and Vantage goes live Aug. 9 on PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One and Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, Origin and Steam for PC.
