How to Counter Revenant Reborn in Apex Legends

To counter Revenant Reborn in Apex Legends, Controller Legends like Catalyst and Caustic are the best options to run. Caustic's Ultimate unleashes Nox gas over a large area for 15 seconds that will deal damage per second and stun enemies, preventing them from sprinting. The stun is perfect to keep Revenant Reborn's Tactical at bay while also harming his teammates.

Catalyst's Ultimate will also stun Revenant Reborn and keep the Legend from quickly advancing on you and your squad. The Dark Veil lasts 30 seconds and will slow and blind enemies that try to cross the wall. Revenant Reborn's Shadow Pounce can essentially be nerfed by the Dark Veil.

If you are not running a Controller Legend, look to shoot Revenant Reborn out of the air as he takes advantage of his Tactical. Plus, to avoid Revenant Reborn's Ultimate from recharging, try to keep anyone in your squad from getting knocked.
