Revenant Guide – Apex Legends

Revenant is an offense-focused character in the popular battle royale Apex Legends. Revenant is best suited for those who are willing and confident enough to push themselves forward with a lack of a concrete game plan, and is probably not an ideal choice for beginners. Still, he can be a monster in the right hands and when he plays to his full potential. In the following guide, we’ll go into the details of this synthetic nightmare and offer some tips on which characters will pair best with him. We will also go into his strengths and weaknesses, as well as how best to overcome the latter.

Deadly abilities

Once human and the greatest assassin for the Mercenary Syndicate, the simulacrum known as the Revenant wants nothing more than to exact revenge on his former masters for turning him into a living machine against his will. With a flaw in his programming preventing the Syndicate from bringing him back under their control, the organization’s higher-ups decided the best way to escape the Revenant’s terrifying grasp was to throw the synthetic nightmare into the Apex Games, where his lust for killing helps the company marketing the machine as the latest villain to join the blood sport.

As you can probably guess, Revenant’s backstory translates into an incredibly aggressive legend to play. Your entire strategy for playing as a Revenant can be summed up in one word: attack. While playing as the Revenant, you should always be on the lookout for another team to kill and the first to enter the fray once you’ve found an objective. This can also mean you’re one of the first on your team to get knocked down in a fight, so you need to make sure you do as much damage as possible before that happens. If you prefer to raid for supplies on the fringes and slowly move into the troops only when the circle is small enough, Revenant may not be the right legend for you. You have to be as bloodthirsty as the Revenant is to succeed him.

Revenant’s passive ability is Stalkerwhich allows him to climb twice as high as the other Legends (two stories as opposed to just one), as well as move about as fast while crouching as the other Legends do while walking.

His tactical abilities Silence throws a device that causes enemies to take 10 damage, be stunned, and disable their tactical and ultimate abilities for a short time. Like Octane’s Stim, Silence can be used in conjunction with other actions, meaning you can use the ability while healing, reloading, aiming, shooting, or throwing a grenade.

It takes a few seconds for the Revenant to fully construct his Death Totem ultimate ability, and players must actually interact with it first for it to take effect. However, when used, the totem will turn you and your teammates into a shadow that can only take health damage – your shields will not be affected. When you die, you will return to the totem’s location, but you will only have 1 HP.
