An Apex Legends fan has created a concept buff that would make Rampart a powerful option in the early stages of matches.

Rampart may not be one of the most popular Apex Legends character, but one player has come up with an interesting idea for a buff that would make her a dominant force in the early stages of matches.

Ever since Apex Legends released in early 201, developers Respawn Entertainment have splent plenty of time tweaking, buffing, and nerfing the characters in the game in an attempt to balance their powers.

Rampart is a character who started off as an incredibly strong option but has fallen in popularity recently. The Season 7 updates have not buffed her up as much as other characters and this has left fans a little disappointed.

For this reason, Reddit user Fetzenschaedl has taken it upon themselves and came up with a buff that could be applied to the character that would make her absolutely devastating in combat.

This buff idea focuses entirely on reworking Rampart’s passive ability and it has two approaches. The first part is to increase the maximum amount of ammo she can carry so that she can stack 50% more bullets without running out of inventory.

The second approach involves every weapon Rampart picks up having a hop-up attached immediately. These are special attachments that significantly improve the weapon’s performance and you can only equip one at a time per weapon. With the suggested buff, any weapon you pick up as Rampart would have the Double Tap Trigger, Turbocharger or Skullpiercing Rounds attachment immediately.

Whether or not Respawn will decide to go along with something like this is uncertain. It would certainly please fans and draw in new players to the character, so it’s a great way to boost her popularity again. However, this could easily go badly as power balancing becomes a major problem.

Even if this suggestion isn’t taken to heart by the developers, it’s likely that they will at some point soon do some fine-tuning to improve Rampart’s abilities.
