Right, mate. I've been knocked down, taken out, hit from both sides hundreds of times - and that was just in a one gauntlet run on a Thursday. But this... this one was a blast! Big Sister's crap of a gang blindsided me at the shop. I mean, do they think they're from the bloody Fringe Worlds? They ain't that tough. I'm just sayin', if ya gonna throw a party at least book a DJ... or a band if you prefer real music, but don't just show up causin' a ruckus and expect not to get a punch in the bloody face. Those plonkers were just pissed that I ran circles around them in the club - cleaned ‘em out pretty good if I don't say so myself. But I ain't stayin' down. Never do. And now, I'm in the bloody big leagues. No more brawlin' for coin against small town street gangs - Ab aur nahin. My shop may be gone, but the name 'Rampart' ain't. I reckon only one thing left to do... go out, make it Legendary, and be back in time for a midnight pint. Now THAT's a Thursday.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Rampart is a blue-collar, private business owner who just needs a big gun and a backpack full of scrap metal to get by in the dangerous, wild west world of the Outlands. Before opening her popular modding shop on Gaea, Ramya Parekh made a name for herself in the underground gauntlet circuit. Parekh climbed to the top showcasing pure skill using her custom-modded gear. She began taking jobs from smugglers, Syndicate members, and everyone in between. Some say it ain't great unless it's got "Rampart" written on it.

Parekh never shied away from letting people know how great she was, or better yet, how bad they were. Maybe that's what led a group of assailants to ambush her at her shop one night. Her business burned down and she was left with nothing -- except an Apex Card. For Parekh, the Apex card is more than just an invitation to compete - it's a sign that she may have lost her shop, but she didn't lose what built it. Like her motto says, she's the kind of person who can always "turn crap into gold."

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Amped Cover[edit | edit source]

Amped Cover.png Amped Cover
Type Tactical
Cooldown 20 seconds
Description Build a crouch-cover wall, which deploys a full-cover amped wall that blocks incoming shots and amps outgoing shots. (Max: 5)

  • You can hold up to 3 charges of this ability, and gain 1 charge every 20 seconds.
  • Boosts outgoing damage by 20%.
    • Shooting through multiple Amped barriers will still only amp the damage once, and all Amped barriers after the first one will be destroyed.
  • The base and the Amped barrier have separate health: the amped barrier has 175 health while the base has 400 health.
    • The barrier health is shown through 7 hexagons, each one being worth 25 health.
  • Amped Cover takes 3 seconds to deploy and it has 45 health during that time.
  • Non-damaged cover can be picked up to restore one charge.

  • The Amped barrier can be destroyed by Crypto's Drone EMP.png Drone EMP.
  • The Amped barrier can be damaged by Caustic's Nox Gas Trap.png Nox Gas Trap and Nox Gas Grenade.png Nox Gas Grenade.
  • If the amped cover is within the blast radius of Frag Grenade, Arc Star, Defensive Bombardment.png Defensive Bombardment, Rolling Thunder.png Rolling Thunder, and Knuckle Cluster.png Knuckle Cluster, every explosion blast always deals 200 damage to its base.
  • Thermite Grenade.svg Thermite Grenades only damage the Amped Cover's base.
  • It takes two melee hits to destroy the entire Amped Cover.
  • If you melee an enemy who is too close to the Amped barrier, only the enemy takes damage, not the Amped barrier.
  • Amped Cover is not penetrable with any Sniper Rifle.
    • It can be penetrated while it is still being deployed.
  • Its base and Amped barrier nullify all exceeded damage before destroyed.
  • Shooting through multiple amped barriers will destroy them one by one, until only one is left.

  • Unlike other defense characters' traps, Amped Cover's effective range is anywhere you can shoot. Use long range weapons to maximize its potential.
  • Amped Cover can't protect shots from above. Don't set up on the low ground if you can help it.
  • While fighting, deploying an Amped Cover wall right behind the base of a destroyed Amped barrier will make it harder for enemies to destroy it during the building animation.
  • While stacking Amped Cover will still only provide you one single effective Amped Barrier, the crouch-covered wall still works, and as such it is still viable to stack Amped Cover depends on the situation.
  • Know the direction of the amped cover. When encountering another enemy's Amped Cover, consider Orange for facing Out, and Purple for Power.
  • Enemies like to rush close and jump past your Amped Cover. Counter this by retreating to a second Amped Cover behind it.
  • A quickly deployed Amp Cover blocks a grenade's explosion.
  • Similar to Nox Gas Trap.png Nox Gas Trap, it can be used as a barricade to block a door, so the enemy cannot open the door toward it.
    • Careful not to accidentally lock your squadmates out. They can't open the doors either.

  • Sometimes the wall won’t deploy when placed on certain geometry.
  • Occasionally, in the Firing Range, you'll hear the sound of the wall getting destroyed, even if there are no walls in your realm.
  • This ability can persist even after changing characters in the Firing Range.

Modded Loader[edit | edit source]

Modded Loader.png Modded Loader
Type Passive
Cooldown N/A
Description Increased magazine/heat capacity and faster reloads/recharge when using LMGs and the Minigun.

  • Increases magazine size by 15% and decreases reload time by 25%.

  • Magazine/heat size increases include:
    • Sheila: 150 → 173
    • Spitfire: 35 / 40 / 45 / 55 → 40 / 46 / 52 / 63
    • Devotion: 36 / 40 / 44 / 48 → 41 / 46 / 51 / 55
    • L-STAR EMG: 22 → 26
  • Sheila's reload time is reduced from 8.5 seconds to 6.25 seconds.

  • As L-STAR cools down rapidly when stowed by Rampart, a Rampart player can carry 2 Purple-Stocked L-STARs, fire a quick burst, then swap to bypass the heat cooldown. Note that this swap must be done prior to the gun reaching critical, otherwise the full part-swap animation will be played.

Emplaced Minigun "Sheila"[edit | edit source]

Emplaced Minigun -Sheila-.png Emplaced Minigun "Sheila"
Type Ultimate
Charge time 120 seconds
Description Place a mounted machine gun that anyone can use. High ammo capacity, long reload time. (Max: 3)

  • While deployed, Sheila has 350 health, a magazine size of 150 (or 173 with Modded Loader.png Modded Loader), and infinite reserve ammo.
  • Deals 14 damage per bullet with a 2x headshot multiplier and no leg multiplier. Fires at a rate of 20 bullets/second.
    • Requires 1.25 seconds to spin up the barrels before can fire. Laser sight will be activated when spinning.
    • Press Aim Down Sight Button to start spinning up. As long as the barrels keep spinning, you can shoot it immediately.
    • Accuracy is initially poor but improves after ramping up.
  • Tap the sprint button to toggle 1x-3x zoom:
    • Built-in 3x Zoom-in Holosight will pop up when zoomed-in.
    • Distance to the target is shown in the holo sight like a sniper scope.
  • Picking it back up recharges Rampart's ultimate by 50%, but only if it has not been used and has taken no damage.

  • Limits your field of view; 180° on horizontal view, upward to 71°, and downward to 53° in vertical view.
  • Takes two melee attacks to destroy.
  • The minigun has two inspect animations by Rampart herself and only one inspect animation by other Legends.
  • Can destroy doors.
  • Can be mounted on the back of the Trident.
  • Friendly and enemy minigun icons are shown on the map.

  • Place Sheila behind a deployed Amped Cover.png Amped Cover to gain extra cover and more damage.
  • Place Amped Cover behind Sheila so the gunner won't get shot from the back by surprise.
  • Even without cover, Sheila is nearly guaranteed to do more damage to an enemy than they can do to you. If you're at full health, you can often take the gamble.
  • Place Sheila near chokepoints to force enemies into your line of fire, especially by the Ring closing in.
  • Take every opportunity you can to finish off downed enemies. Sheila will grind through even a purple Knockdown Shield.svg Knockdown Shield in seconds.
  • Because of its loud ramp-up sound and tracking laser, enemies will notice when you stay on Sheila for too long, and will plan around it.
  • Panicked enemies have a hard time hitting even a stationary target. The more you can catch them off guard, the better.
  • Consider picking Sheila back up when leaving an area as the enemy may use it against you. If unused, you even get half of your ultimate charge back.
  • Sheila's reload is very long and leaves you totally vulnerable. Sometimes you'll have to use just one magazine and abandon it.
  • While you can place Sheila on a Trident's back, your accuracy will take a significant drop, even when stationary. Don't consider this a serious strategy.

Teasers[edit | edit source]

  • On August 4th, 2020, a tweet from the official game account shows a voice message Bangalore left to Rampart, where she calls Rampart by "P" (from Parekh) and asks if an implied commission is done - almost certainly a gun, considering Rampart's background.
  • On August 5th, 2020, signs of Hammond Robotics future worksites on World's Edge were vandalized with spray paint reading "Rampart Symbol Icon.svg", "SHOP ⟶ Rampart Symbol Icon.svg", and "ALL HAIL SHEILA!".
    • The same day, a second tweet shows a voice message that a woman called Dion Bakar left to Rampart, where she calls Rampart by "Parekh", praises the pistol that Rampart modded for her and asks for a replica with discount.
  • On August 6th, 2020, the Season 6 Launch Trailer was released.
  • On August 7th, 2020, another tweet shows a voice message that a man called Nix left to Rampart, where he calls Rampart by "Rami" and implores for a specific "baby" - almost certainly a nickname for gun.
  • On August 8th, 2020, the train and Capitol City were vandalized with "SORRY SORRY" and "NOT SORRY". Capitol City was also vandalized with images of Kuben Blisk, one of them having a crown, and the message "WON'T LET YA DOWN Rampart Symbol Icon.svg" beside them.
    • The same day, a tweet shows a voice message from a woman called Frances trying to induce Rampart into losing the next day's match for her, and her friends, gambling profits.
  • On August 10th, 2020, a fifth tweet shows a voice message that a man called Grimes left to Rampart. In this message, Grimes offers a good amount of cash for the turret (Sheila) he saw Rampart use in the Gauntlet.
  • On August 11, 2020, "The Endorsement" was released.
  • On August 14, 2020, the Season 6 Gameplay Trailer was released.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Rampart's abilities are derived from Titanfall 2's A-Wall tactical ability. Her affinity for LMGs likely comes from the meta of using the Spitfire with the A-Wall for easy long-range kills.
Rampart carving her symbol on to Sheila.
  • Rampart's symbol Rampart's Symbol can be found on her clothing, weapons that she modded and in the Graffiti Mod.svg Graffiti Mod icon. Reactive weapon skins from the Season 4.svg Season 4, Season 5.svg Season 5, and Season 6.svg Season 6 Battle Passes also have this symbol engraved. It is present on Season 6.svg Season 6 Battle Pass legendary skin for Pathfinder too.
  • Rampart has been modding since she was 12 or 13.[2]
  • The weapons that Rampart modded are called "Ramparts".[3]
  • Due to some inaccurate leaks, there was a misconception that Rampart was a white male before she was revealed. (The dataminer responsible for the leak admitted that he paired names and faces through guesswork.[4]) When Respawn was accused of "changing" Rampart's design, principal animator Moy Parra responded by stating that the leaked image was never Rampart, and that designs cannot be changed on a whim.[5] Knowing that people believed in the bad leaks, writer Tom Casiello seemingly created a male gunsmith character "Reginald" as a red herring to Rampart's identity on Twitter, before Rampart was revealed.
