After being teased in the Season 4: Assimilation gameplay trailer, Revenant’s abilities are finally known thanks to the new Apex Legends patch notes. The new legend is a hybrid of offensive-focused and support abilities, allowing him to both help allies and harm foes by causing status effects.
Before we get to the really interesting stuff, let’s look at Revenant’s passive ability. Called Stalker, the skill allows Revenant to crouch walk faster and climb higher than the other legends. This is an ideal ability to have for those who want to take a stealthy approach and sneak up on other squads.
Revenant’s tactical ability, Silence, allows you to fling out an orb of dark energy that lands and almost immediately explodes. Those caught in the blast radius will be slightly damaged and their passive, tactical, and ultimate abilities will be disabled for 10 seconds.
Finally, Revenant’s ultimate ability is Death Totem. Those who touch the totem, whether friend or foe, transform into a shadow being for a set amount of time. Those killed will simply return to the location of the totem, removing the risk of being downed when pushing on an enemy team.
Assimilation has officially begun, putting an end to Year 1, and the new season brings with it several significant map changes to World’s Edge and a brand-new sniper rifle called the Sentinel. Kings Canyon will make its return, though not at the start of the season. Assimilation also adds a new battle pass, which contains several cool-looking rare and legendary skins that transform some of the legends into simulacrums like Revenant.
