Apex Legends Unveils New Legend

Respawn Entertainment’s free-to-play battle royale-hero shooter Apex Legends has unveiled a new legend named Vantage.

Described as a survivalist sniper, Xiomara “Mara” Contreras is “a survivalist who can see a threat coming from down her sniper scope from thousands of meters away. Born to a wrongfully-convicted criminal who gave birth to her alone on the barren ice planet Págos, Vantage has grown into the ultimate survivalist. Forced to live off a hostile land, she became unfathomably good with a scoped weapon.”

Here’s a peek at Vantage’s abilities:

PASSIVE: Spotter’s Lens

Aim down sights to scout with your eyepiece (unarmed or with mid- to long-range scopes) and use a bullet drop indicator to see where your shots will land. 

TACTICAL: Echo Location

Position your winged companion Echo and then Launch towards him. Must have line of sight to Echo for Launch.

ULTIMATE: Sniper’s Mark

Use your custom sniper rifle to mark enemy targets which applies a damage bonus for you and your team.
