The Latest Apex Legends patch notes 10/09/2021
Rampart Town Takeover – Big Maude
Rampart is finally getting the opportunity to pull out the big guns with the mod shop of her dreams, so she can show the Outlands (and Big Sister) what she’s capable of.
Big Maude is a custom shop (in a giant tank) located near Lava City in World’s Edge. It can accommodate a few teams fighting over the shop itself, and features a paintball course out front that acts as a spill off location.
In the shop, you can purchase Rampart’s custom modded paintball weapons from the Vend0It Machines using materials you’ve collected along the way. They are pricey, but come fully kitted out at different tiers, luring you in during the mid-game phase if your weapons aren’t packing the desired punch.
Rampart Arenas Takeover
Rampart is offering modded weapons in Arenas for special, marked-down prices on a frequent rotation. The modded weapons replace the base versions during the match, making lower tiers of that weapon unavailable.
Rampart’s Heirloom: Problem Solver and new Character skins
Rampart’s Arenas Extravaganza is hitting Arenas, offering special discounts, intended to inspire you to switch up your usual loadout. To mark this occasion, Rampart is receiving the brand-new Heirloom pipe, Problem Solver, complete with a gumball dispenser.
Fresh, event-limited cosmetics have also dropped. Deck Wraith, Octane, Pathfinder, Fuse, Bangalore, Rampart, and Lifeline out with some awesome, futuristic threads.
Weapon and Hero Balance Changes
The biggest balance change in the new patch is that Rampart can now run around with Sheila out, and shoot while walking. The trade off is that the spin up is longer, and she only gets one magazine in this mode. Once Sheila is out, you can put it away and pull it back out until you run out of ammo. You can also put down Sheila for your teammates to use, giving it infinite reloads – though when place, you can’t pick it back up
