All Legend Buffs and Nerfs in Apex Legends Season 18

The reworks are here.

Apex Legends Season 18 update is dropping tomorrow, and it's set to bring plenty of new content to Respawn's popular battle royale title. As is tradition, the new season will also bring a number of changes to playable characters that will directly impact the game's meta.

Some of you may already know about the changes to Revenant Reborn, but that’s not all: the developers have also tweaked some key abilities for other characters in the game. Without any further ado, here's a detailed breakdown of all the Legend changes in Apex Legends Season 18.

Revenant New Class and Abilities

  • Updated class to Skirmisher (was Assault)
  • Passive: Assasin’s Instinct
    • Highlight nearby visible enemies who are low on health. You crouch walk faster and have improved wall climbing.
  • Tactical: Shadow Pounce
    • Unleash a powerful pounce forward. Hold to charge for farther distances.
  • Ultimate: Forged Shadows
    • Forge a shroud of hardened shadows around you that blocks direct damage and regenerates after breaking. Your shadows and tactical are refreshed on knockdowns.

Revenant seems to have a lot more mobility and versatility with his new abilities, especially when it comes to Shadow Pounce and Forged Shadows. I think he will be a great legend for players who like to play aggressively and stealthily, as he can track down low-health enemies, leap across the map, and create a protective shield around him.
