EA and Respawn have unveiled an in-depth look at the newest character to hit Apex Legends, the sharpshooter Vantage.
Vantage, or Xiomara “Mara” Contreras, was born to a wrongfully-convicted criminal who gave birth to her alone on the barren ice planet Págos, where she learned from an early age one simple truth: everything wants to kill you. She’s the 22nd Legend to be added to the game as she makes her debut on August 9 alongside the latest update, Apex Legends: Hunted.
Take a peek at some of the skills at her disposal:
- Passive – Spotter’s Lens: Using her Spotter’s Lens to read tactical information on enemy squads at a distance, Vantage always has the upper hand with critical intel like Legend name, Shield rarity, team size, and range.
- Tactical – Echo Relocation: Vantage’s companion Echo is at the ready to help her reposition herself in a fight. Using her modified jetpack and targeting system, Vantage can launch herself towards Echo’s position and take the high ground.
- Ultimate – Sniper’s Mark: There’s nowhere to hide from Vantage’s custom sniper rifle, which reveals enemies with its scope and with its ammunition: a successful hit highlights opposing squads for 10 seconds accompanied by a diamond marker, and damage scales up with each hit.
Apex Legends: Hunted goes live on August 9, 2022.
