Apex Legends players will soon have the chance to visit "Big Maude"—Rampart's newest addition modified using her engineering prowess.

Following the thread of Rampart's town takeover, data miners have unraveled even more information around the event. Credible informant @GarretLeaks unveiled the teaser, animations, and even replacement sign graphic that players could see once the takeover kicks into high gear. According to @GarretLeaks, players will soon be able to encounter Rampart and her handiwork beginning on Sept. 5, with more evidence appearing on Sept. 7 and Sept. 10.

Rampart Town Takeover POI Revealed

Rampart appears to have taken over an old ship and/or building previously known as "Renewal Plaza." The original sign states that it was supposed to be the "exclusive home" of a shop called "Parekh Modifications"—which we know could belong to none other than our Ramya "Rampart" Parekh. It appears that Rampart would have potentially shared the shop or projects within it with Hammond Robotics. However, looking at the revised sign, that definitely isn't the case anymore.

In the revised—what some are called "vandalized"—sign, Rampart has clearly made her division from "Schammond" known. Additionally, she has scribbled over the corporatized reimagining of her logo and replaced it with her signature symbol. She's also taken the liberty of recoloring the place to fit her orange and turquoise "brand colors."

As usual, Rampart has taken something old and turned it into gold with her own unique flair. We wouldn't expect anything less from the best mechanic in the games. After all, as some say, "it ain't great unless it's got 'Rampart' written on it."

The plaza, now re-named "Big Maude," will likely be placed within Lava City. There's currently no verifiable leads on just what will await players inside. They'll just have to wait for the event to draw closer.
