With that said, let’s get into the details of Revenant Reborn.

Who is Revenant Reborn in Apex Legends?

Revenant Reborn is the rework for the Legend Revenant from Season 4. Despite technically not being a new Legend, Revenant Reborn brings a “killer new look and deadly new abilities,” pretty much making this version of Revenant a new character for the game.

Revenant Reborn comes with a new launch bundle to emphasize the new look for the character. This is similar to what’s done when a new Legend is introduced, so players can basically treat Revenant Reborn as the new Legend for Season 18.

Further, Revenant will be unlocked for all players in Season 18, but they must complete a set of quests by the end of the season to permanently unlock the Legend after the season has ended.
