Apex Legends has been teasing the character of Rampart for quite some time. Most recently, Rampart's imminent entry into the legend pool was teased in the Season 5 trailer. Last month, Rampart's alleged ability list leaked. On Friday, Apex Legends writer Tom Casiello took to Twitter to call these abilities "old" - implying that players should expect a different kit whenever Rampart finally enters the fray.

Casiello has been active on Twitter lately, often hinting towards upcoming story content. Recently, he teased that Bangalore would enjoy the spotlight in Season 6. Just this weekend, he assured fans that Lifeline would be receiving more story content as well. Besides story content, Casiello also engaged with fans about the recently leaked abilities of presumed upcoming legend, Rampart.

The leaked ability list, pictured above, is a powerful kit for the presumed upcoming legend. It features a passive called Amped Cover, which allows Rampart to build an upper barrier of cover that reduces incoming damage and boosts outgoing damage. The kit also features a mounted machine gun ultimate that requires heavy ammo but can be used by all teammates.

Casiello responded by saying the user has "the balls to reply with *old* leaked content." Casiello seems to be implying that Rampart's abilities have been tweaked, and that players should expect a different kit when he launches.

Casiello gives no indication, though, as to what exactly is "old" about Rampart's leaked abilities. One should expect that some of these abilities will remain the same, as the devs may have only tweaked certain aspects of Rampart's leaked kit. Apex Legends players should expect more information about the next playable legend when Season 6 information is released.
