After the upcoming Apex Legends Genesis Collection Event was announced, the devs also showed off what players can expect from the new Revenant buff.

The new Genesis Collection Event will be arriving in Apex Legends on June 29, along with a host of new changes detailed in the patch notes.

Players looking for something new in Apex Legends will be excited for the new content to drop, especially as we may see a meta shift due to the changes that were revealed. One of the most interesting changes, which could see the Legend become top tier, is Revenant’s climbing buff.

As well as being the next Legend to receive an Heirloom for the Genesis Collection Event, Revenant has also been given some changes in the patch notes.

The new Revenant buff was detailed in the official patch notes by Respawn Entertainment, along with a video presenting what players can expect.

Here are the official changes coming to Revenant:


  • Slightly slimmed down hitbox (specifically his midsection, arms, and upper legs).
  • Stalker climb height significantly increased. It’s not literally unlimited now, but… that boy can really climb.
  • Silence duration decreased from 20 seconds to 15 seconds.
  • Reduced the duration of death protection by 5 seconds while using the Death Totem.

Although the reduced times for Silence and death protection while using the Death Totem is definitely a big nerf for the Legend, the Apex Legends Revenant buff to his Stalker climb height and slimmed down hitbox could appeal to many [players and potentially shoot him up the Legend meta.

As it says in the Patch notes, Revenant’s new climbing buff isn’t “literally unlimited,” but it is significantly higher than before.

To show just how high he can climb, the devs revealed a video showing him climbing up the building under construction just outside Fragment East/West.

This building is 5 stories high, and the fact that Revenant is now able to climb all the way to the top means there will be a crazy amount of options for the Legend to take fights and push enemies all over every map. Thanks to the powerful Apex Legends Revenant buff.

This Apex Legends Revenant buff could draw a lot of attention to the Legend, and players may use/encounter him much more when the update finally drops.

For those who already love using Revenant, we’re sure you couldn’t have asked for anything better, as although the devs teased that they would be buffing his climbing ability, not many were expecting it to be this much of an increase.
