Strange Apex Legends glitch is breaking Rampart’s abilities
Rampart has faced a few issues since her debut in Apex Legends Season 6. She is one of the least-picked characters, and many players attribute this to her abilities having bugs that make her useless.
Apex Legends has a variety of colorful and unique characters that suit different playstyles. If you’re into heavy weaponry, then Rampart should be right up your alley. She uses LMGs, and her ultimate is the minigun “Sheila”, which you can use to dish out some serious pain.
Rampart is a defensive Legend that can provide protection with her Amped Cover ability. She can set up fortifications to block damage, and you can even mount the minigun onto the cover. This ability is her main draw, but it isn’t working quite right.
Rampart’s broken ability
There is a bug that keeps the Amped Cover ability from functioning properly, and this might be what turns players away from choosing her.
Reddit user dadnothere posted a clip of their Rampart gameplay in the Apex Legends subreddit. In this, they tried to activate her Amped Cover ability, but the cover would not deploy. It would keep disappearing so fast that they couldn’t set it down properly.
The player was on World’s Edge when they recorded this game-breaking bug. You can see this in the clip below.
This glitch may have originated after Respawn applied a fix for a bug that placed the A-Wall on ledges. Ever since that update patch went live, players have reported that they can’t properly place walls because they clip into the ground.
This might be why Rampart is one of the least-picked legends in Season 7. This issue has glitched her abilities so much that she’s borderline unplayable. Many players expressed their frustration with this issue in the comments of the clip.
Apex player u/DestinyPotato said: “I had to use [Rampart] for a daily and this was p*ssing me off so much. I couldn’t place shields in wide open areas.”
Despite going through many updates, Rampart’s glaring problems haven’t been resolved. As a result, she’s become a bit of a joke among some fans. One of the developers responded to requests for an update by stating that finding the right tuning for her isn’t easy.
The Amped Cover functions differently from other abilities, so that might be why it’s so difficult to fix it. Hopefully we’ll see an update patch that resolves this soon, but Rampart will not gain any popularity until that happens.
