Apex Legends: Hunted is quickly to launch, and main the cost is Vantage – the youngest Legend ever inducted (or kidnapped) into the Apex Video games. Vantage hails from the icy world of Pagos, and her abilities as a sharpshooter are borne out in her three highly effective talents – not least of which is her customized sniper rifle Final, which she will carry out earlier than the flexibility has even totally charged with a view to snipe enemies and mark them for elevated injury for her whole group.

It is early days for predictions, however to this point it looks as if Vantage could find yourself being a really sturdy addition to the Apex Legends characters roster. Her Spotter’s Lens Passive capability gives some superb element for each ranked and unranked gamers alike, permitting you to scope in on an enemy and see the color of their Evo Defend, the variety of gamers of their group, and a bullet drop indicator for long-ranged scopes.
This dovetails completely together with her Final, Sniper’s Mark, which supplies Vantage the usage of her personal customized sniper rifle, modified from an outdated predecessor of the Sentinel. What’s attention-grabbing is that this Final capability would not cost up like common Ultimates. As a substitute, she will use it at just about any time, however leaving the Final charging for longer will increase the variety of pictures she will fireplace one after the opposite, as much as a complete of 5 pictures.
It is a fairly punchy rifle too, dealing 50 injury with the primary shot on an enemy, however marking them for elevated injury within the course of. For the subsequent 10 seconds after being shot, that enemy will take a bit of additional injury from Vantage’s teammates, and a whopping 100 injury from every subsequent shot of Vantage’s Ult. Feels like a whole lot of long-ranged injury potential for any participant with good quickscoping abilities.
Then there’s Vantage’s Tactical capability, Echo Relocation, which provides the very first animal companion ever launched into the Apex Video games. Apparently it took fairly a little bit of preventing and pushing on Vantage’s half to get the sport runners to comply with let Vantage’s little bat good friend Echo into the Video games alongside her, however they capitulated when she stated she would not struggle with out him. At a second’s discover, Vantage can ship Echo to a close-by location, after which through the use of the flexibility once more, she’s going to interact her jetpacks and fly shortly to Echo’s place.
It not solely gives Vantage with an effective way of closing the gap between her group and the enemy after dealing some good ranged injury, however it additionally appears to supply her with various mobility choices. For one, she will cancel out of the jetpack bounce early. For an additional, she will double-jump earlier than touchdown, a bit like Octane’s Launch Pad. And thirdly, after sending Echo out she will select to not fly there in any respect. She’s not dedicated to the motion like, say, Loba could be together with her bracelet. Feels like Echo goes to be a fairly highly effective companion – significantly since he cannot be harmed or killed by enemies to disrupt the flexibility. He is far too cute for the devs to permit that.
