Apex Legends Season 6 Shows Off Boosted Gameplay

Apex Legends is almost done wrapping up Season 5, which means it’s time for Apex Legends Season 6: Boosted. There’s a bunch of new content for Season 6 of this popular Battle Royale, including a new Legend, weapon, and crafting system. Let’s briefly go over what’s going to land with the sizable update on August 17 around 10 PM PST.

 

Apex Legends Season 6: Boosted – Rampart

With every season of Apex Legends comes a new, playable Legend for players to use. Season 6 will give players the chance to unlock Rampart, a defensive Legend with a gigantic minigun (ironic much?). Ramya Parekh, also known as Rampart, has an affinity for modding, with abilities that allow her to build cover and enhance her reload speed and magazine size. Other Legends can hide behind her Amped Cover and even take control of her minigun, affectionately named “Sheila.”

 

Guns, Maps, and Crafting

Season 6 of Apex Legends is adding a new SMG weapon into the mix with the Volt. We don’t know a whole lot more than that at the moment, but it’s a welcome addition to the decent-sized arsenal already available. It looks cool and is most certainly a gun.

There’s also going to be a new crafting for players to mess around with when the update drops. There aren’t too many details available yet, but from what we know, players will be able to gather materials from around the map and compile them to “build something better” at stations littered at certain locations.

Apex Legends Season 6 Boosted

Like with Season 5’s revamp of King’s Canyon, Season 6 will update World’s Edge with a variety of new locations and structures while erasing others. There are some notable locations being removed, such as Mirage’s Voyage barge, a big location for loot and shenanigans. You can check out some interactive pictures of major World’s Edge changes on Apex Legends’ official website. Lastly, Season 6 will implement a new Battle Pass, with over 100 unlockable items for players who choose to purchase it at 1000 Apex Coins ($10).

You can check out the full Apex Legends Season 6 gameplay trailer below and see if you can pick out any teases of new content.
