New details surrounding unreleased Apex Legends character Vantage have been revealed, giving fans an idea of the abilities they will bring to the game.
Every season Apex Legends players are gifted a brand-new Legend to master. Season 13 brought Newcastle, who fans have discovered some great tips and tricks with.
Now, we officially have news on who the new Legend will be for Apex Legends Season 14, which is titled “Hunted.” Vantage will arrive when the season drops, bringing a sniper specialist to the roster.
Who is Vantage in Apex Legends?
Vantage has officially been revealed by EA as the Season 14 Legend with the Stories from the Outlands episode released on July 25 entitled “Survive.”
Vantage is from Pagos, a “barren ice planet” that taught the character how to become the “ultimate survivor.” After a near-death experience in a crashed spaceship, Vantage is saved by her mother, allowing her to join the Apex Games after being rescued.
According to dataminers, Vantage is listed as a “Survivalist Sniper,” and could have links to the Recon Legend Bloodhound. New Apex Legends characters often have some sort of connection to an existing Legend, like Newcastle and Bangalore, Loba and Revenant, and Horizon and Ash.
Vantage’s outfit looks very similar to Bloodhound’s, and the abilities match that of a Recon character, sharing another similarity to Bloodhound, so perhaps there is a connection there.
