Resurrection, Apex Legends’ new season will reintroduce and rework the iconic character Revenant, giving every player a chance to earn it for free by completing a set of challenges this season.
Coming on August 8 on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X, Resurrection will be adding the Broken Moon to the map pool. Players will also find the Charge Rifle, a reworked weapon that changed from a overpowered long-distance weapon to a more down-to-earth sniper gun.
Here are more details about the upcoming season 18 of Apex Legends:
Who is the new character of Apex Legends season 18?
Revenant, who released in May 2020, is getting a rework with the brand new name “Revenant Reborn”, with a new skin and a new skill set.
According to Evan Funnell, character designer, Revenant is an old character that hasn’t been keeping up with the gameplay. A lot of his patterns have become problematic over time which is now solved with a new look and exciting abilities to emphasize the “monstrous assassin fantasy” he presents.
- Passive: “Assassin’s Instinct”
Enemies with low health are highlighted to Revenant players. This passive also gives Revenant faster wall climbing and crouch walk.
- Tactical: “Shadow Pounce”
Because Revenant’s new passive somewhat copies his old Silence tactical, Respawn changes his old ability to a new stronger traversal ability which gives Revenant the ability to tap for a short dash or charge up for a huge leap.
- Ultimate: “Forged Shadows”
Revenant Reborn summons a “shroud of shadows” to confuse enemies and absorb damage for 25 seconds.

What is the new weapon for Apex Legends season 18?
The Charge Rifle is getting an overhaul which will be available to players this season. This means an end to the Charge Rifle’s hitscan abilities.
