|“||Right, mate. I've been knocked down, taken out, hit from both sides hundreds of times - and that was just in a one gauntlet run on a Thursday. But this... this one was a blast! Big Sister's crap of a gang blindsided me at the shop. I mean, do they think they're from the bloody Fringe Worlds? They ain't that tough. I'm just sayin' if ya gonna throw a party at least book a DJ... or a band if you prefer real music, but don't just show up causin' a ruckus and expect not to get a punch in the bloody face. Those plonkers were just pissed that I ran circles around them in the club - cleaned ‘em out pretty good if I don't say so myself. But I ain't stayin' down. Never do. And now, I'm in the bloody big leagues. No more brawlin' for coin against small-town street gangs - . My shop may be gone, but the name 'Rampart' ain't. I reckon only one thing left to do... go out, make it Legendary, and be back in time for a midnight pint. Now THAT's a Thursday.|

Rampart is a Defensive Legend that specializes in securing areas through firepower. Her tactical ability Amped Cover places a rectangular wall. The upper half of a wall blocks a certain amount of bullets taken from one direction, and enhances any bullets fired through from the other direction. Her passive ability Modded Loader increases reload speed and magazine size with LMGs and her ultimate. Her ultimate ability Mobile Minigun "Sheila" allows her to use a minigun that she can either carry or place down, but it can only be reloaded while immobile.

|Description||Build a crouch-cover wall, which deploys a full-cover amped wall that blocks incoming shots and amps outgoing shots. (Max: 5)|
- You can hold up to 3 charges of this ability, and gain 1 charge every 20 seconds.
- Amped Cover takes 3.6 seconds to deploy (3 seconds + all the small animations and delays)
- During deployment, it has 120 health. Once Fully deploy, it will have full health.
- The base and the amped barrier have separate health:
- The crouch base has 400 health. If this part is destroyed, the entire cover is gone.
- The amped barrier has 175 health; health is shown through 7 hexagons, each one being worth 25 health.
- Boosts outgoing damage by 20%.
- Shooting through multiple Amped barriers will still only amp the damage once, and all Amped barriers after the first one will be destroyed.
- Non-damaged cover can be picked up to restore one charge.
- It can be penetrated while it is still being deployed.
- Use long-range weapons to maximize their potential.
- A quick deployment provide users a safe space to confirm enemy's precise location
- For that matter, be aware of your own amped cover, especially when fights become non-linear.
- Careful not to accidentally lock your squadmates out. They can't open the doors either.
|Description||Increased magazine/heat capacity and faster reloads/recharge when using LMGs and the Minigun.|
- Increases magazine size by 15% and decreases reload time by 25%.
- Sheila: 8.67 seconds → 6.5 seconds
- Tactical: 2.78 → 2.09
- Full: 3.31 → 2.48
- Tactical: 2.6 / 2.51 / 2.43 / 2.34 → 1.95 / 1.89 / 1.82 / 1.76
- Full: 3.33 / 3.22 / 3.11 / 3 → 2.5 / 2.42 / 2.33 / 2.25
- Tactical: 2.80 / 2.71 / 2.61 / 2.52 → 2.10 / 2.03 / 1.96 / 1.89
- Full: 3.63 / 3.51 / 3.39 / 3.27 → 2.72 / 2.63 / 2.54 / 2.45
- L-STAR (when overheat): 2.45 / 2.37 / 2.29 / 2.21 → 1.84 / 1.78 / 1.71 / 1.65
- As the passive also affect the cooldown of L-Star, it becomes a very powerful weapon in the hand of a Rampart who can manage its recoil pattern,
- A Rampart player can carry 2 Purple-Stocked L-STARs, fire a quick burst, then swap to bypass the heat cooldown. Note that this swap must be done before the gun reaching critical, otherwise the full part-swap animation will be played.
- The passive can make Rampart extremely viable in Arena mode due to the lower cost of LMG.
Mobile Minigun "Sheila"
|Mobile Minigun "Sheila"|
|Description||Wield a mobile minigun with a single high capacity magazine. Place it down for anyone to use as a stationary and reloadable turret (Max: 3)|
|Charge time||2 minutes|
- When activated, Rampart carries Sheila with a single magazine of 173 rounds.
- After firing all the shots, it can either be placed down as a turret or be put away. (Holster will also count as putting it away.)
- Toggle fire-mode to start the cooldown and the % of unused ammo gets refunded as ultimate energy (max: 75%, unless Sheila was never fired).
- Use the normal weapon switch to holster Sheila; it will remain "active" with that magazine, and can be switched back with the ultimate button, until it was placed in cooldown or emplaced.
- Press "Utility action" key to switch between mobile mode and placement mode.
- While emplaced, Sheila has 350 health, a magazine size of 150 (or 173 with Modded Loader), and infinite reserve ammo.
- Emplaced Sheila can be destroyed by pressing "Utility action" key. No charges will be refunded.
- Requires spin up of barrels before can fire. Takes 1.25 seconds. Laser sight will be activated when spinning.
- Press Aim Down Sight Button to start spinning up. As long as the barrels keep spinning, you can shoot it immediately.
- Tap the sprint button to toggle zoom:
- Mobile mode: 1.8x; Emplaced mode: 3x.
- Built-in Zoom-in Holosight will pop up when zoomed in.
- Distance to the target is shown in the holo sight like a sniper scope.
- Deals 14 damage per round, at 20 rounds/second, with a 2x headshot multiplier and no leg multiplier (full damage profile available at Rampart/Mobile Minigun "Sheila").
- Accuracy is initially poor but improves after ramping up.
- Takes two melee attacks to destroy.
- Can still open loot containers and doors; can still interact with and on zipline; can still use items on the inventory screen.
- Once the round is over, the ultimate is gone, with no charges carry over; nor would you get a discount for purchase if there are remaining charges.
- Putting it in cooldown in mid-match will not be able to bring it back out, even if there are remaining charge.
- The spin-up time of mobile mode is lengthy, as well as greatly reduces user's mobility and rotation
- The zoomed scope can easily create tunnel vision
- Emplace Sheila makes the gunner stationary, and has a limited field of view; smart enemies can easily flank an inattentive gunner.
- Because of its loud ramp-up sound and tracking laser, enemies will notice when you stay on Sheila for too long and will plan around it.
- Place Amped Cover behind Sheila so the gunner won't get shot from the back by surprise.
- Emplace Sheila near chokepoints to force enemies into your line of fire, especially by the Ring-closing in.
- Emplaced Sheila's reload time is very long and leaves you vulnerable. Sometimes you'll have to use just one magazine and abandon it.
|“||Rampart is a blue-collar, private business owner who just needs a big gun and a backpack full of scrap metal to get by in the dangerous, wild west world of the Outlands. Before opening her popular modding shop on Gaea, Ramya Parekh (Rampart for short) made a name for herself in the underground gauntlet circuit. Parekh climbed to the top showcasing pure skill using her custom-modded gear. She began taking jobs from smugglers, Syndicate members, and everyone in between. Some say it ain’t great unless it’s got “Rampart” written on it.
Parekh never shied away from letting people know how great she was, or better yet, how bad they were. Maybe that’s what led a group of assailants to ambush her at her shop one night. Her business burned down and she was left with nothing -- except an Apex Card. For Parekh, the Apex card is more than just an invitation to compete - it's a sign that she may have lost her shop, but she didn't lose what built it. Like her motto says, she's the kind of person who can always "turn crap into gold.”
Ramya Parekh was born in 2712 on Gaea. She spent much of her childhood tinkering in junkyards, where her possibly adoptive parents, M. and S. Parekh, once found her.  An early creation of hers allowed for excessively rapid firing of paintballs, fast enough to surprise her that it did not start a fire. 
Over time, Parekh began to make a name for herself through two endeavors - her custom equipment and her success in Arenas matches. During her tenure, she and Seer attained a great amount of perfect victories.  She eventually opened Rampart Mods, a custom weapon shop, on Gaea. 
At some point, Parekh became involved with a gang led by an individual known as Big Sister. The gang’s enforcer, Frances, ordered Parekh to intentionally lose a gauntlet run. However, she refused. 
One night at Rampart Mods, after sharing a drink with Bangalore and Gibraltar, Frances and other members of Big Sister’s gang cornered Parekh at Rampart Mods. Seeking revenge for Parekh’s refusal to throw her match and a presumed financial loss on their part, they attack, with Parekh defending herself using her Amped Cover and her minigun, Sheila. After seemingly subduing her attackers, Big Sister arrives, and a gang member seizes the opening to attack Parekh. The assailants burn her shop down, leaving only Sheila and the store’s sign intact. 
After the gang departs, Parekh is met by Kuben Blisk, who had been observing her for nearly a year, having been considered missing during that time.  Blisk commends her fighting spirit, handing her an Apex card and officially inviting her to become a Legend under his sponsorship. 
One Saturday in 2733, Parekh completed an Apex Games match on Kings Canyon. After noticing Caustic holding a bloody bag, she and Wattson followed him to a hidden laboratory, where they found him experimenting on starving prowlers. After he discovers and threatens the two, the prowlers escape and begin rampaging through Solace City.
Parekh later arrived at a local hospital with the other Legends, only to be caught under debris from a landing dropship owned by Boss Willis of the Mercenary Syndicate.  Parekh then assisted in rescuing the hospital’s patients from the rubble.
The First Ship
Wraith took notice of the failing financial state of Mirage’s bar, the Paradise Lounge. In an attempt to help her friend, and much to his chagrin, she allowed Parekh to open the new location of Rampart Mods in the derelict restroom of the bar. Additionally, Pathfinder began to claim that he has a “girlfriend.”  In protest, Mirage makes a bet with Parekh: If she is not “a five-alarm psycho train wreck,” Parekh will stay at the Paradise Lounge. 
Returning to the Paradise Lounge, the two pester Wraith about who won the bet. She declares that neither of them “won,” and that the two need to learn to coexist. She departs, reminding them to pack for the coming Apex Games matches.  Mirage, using this comment as an excuse for petty revenge, loads all of Parekh’s belongings onto the Mercenary Syndicate’s rocket in World’s Edge.  Parekh later comforts Pathfinder after Ash leaves him. 
Mirage, attempting to make amends with Parekh, buys her flowers, despite her hatred of them. After his falling out with Wraith, Parekh also leaves Mirage, saying that while he may have heard what they told him, he was not truly listening. Mirage, seeking to truly make things right, returns with a bouquet of wrenches. 
Season 7 Launch Trailer
Some time after, Parekh filed a lawsuit against Hammond Engineering to recover her belongings. The final settlement allowed her to open a second storefront for Rampart Mods on Olympus, requiring her to withdraw her lawsuit and modify the Trident vehicle for use in Apex Games matches. Through this, Parekh earned both the respect and ire of Cheryl Amacci, Hammond Engineering’s chief legal officer, who felt that she had met her match. 
During his search for his creator(s), Revenant tricked Pathfinder into believing that he had killed them.  Pathfinder, now despondent, intended to leave the Outlands for good, wishing to say goodbye to Mirage. Instead, he encountered Parekh, who helped him realize that Revenant had tricked him. While reviewing his evidence and footage, Parekh pointed out the similarities between the iconography of the Apex Games and the Apex Predators, the mercenary corps that had provided a security detail for Project Iris. Having found the missing link, Parekh offered to connect the MRVN to Kuben Blisk to help in his search. 
The Legacy Antigen
During the Medusa outbreak, Parekh remained on Olympus to assist in curtailing the spread of the Medusa vines. While fighting off the encroaching foliage, she tells Mirage that, due to her successful suit against Hammond, she can move out at any point. As another act of petty revenge, Mirage destroys several of Parekh’s Amped Cover emplacements. The two begin arguing until the arrival of Evelyn Witt, Mirage’s mother, whose encouragement reminds Mirage of how it felt to have siblings. Parekh and Mirage reconcile, with Rampart agreeing to stay as a roommate, despite moving her shop. 
Eventually, Parekh established another new location for her shop in World’s Edge - located inside a large tank known as Big Maude.  However, despite cutting ties with Big Sister, she continues to receive threatening messages from Frances.

Parekh helped to prepare for Bangalore's retirement party.

Wait 'Til Ya Meet Sheila!
- On August 4th, 2020, a tweet from the official game account shows a voice message Bangalore left to Rampart, where she calls Rampart by "P" (from Parekh) and asks if an implied commission is done - almost certainly a gun, considering Rampart's background.
- On August 5th, 2020, signs of Hammond Robotics future worksites on World's Edge were vandalized with spray paint reading "", "SHOP ⟶ ", and "ALL HAIL SHEILA!".
- The same day, a second tweet shows a voice message that a woman called Dion Bakar left to Rampart, where she calls Rampart by "Parekh", praises the pistol that Rampart modded for her and asks for a replica with discount.
- On August 6th, 2020, the Season 6 Launch Trailer was released.
- On August 7th, 2020, another tweet shows a voice message that a man called Nix left to Rampart, where he calls Rampart by "Rami" and implores for a specific "baby" - almost certainly a nickname for gun.
- On August 8th, 2020, the train and Capitol City were vandalized with "SORRY SORRY" and "NOT SORRY". Capitol City was also vandalized with images of Kuben Blisk, one of them having a crown, and the message "WON'T LET YA DOWN " beside them.
- The same day, a tweet shows a voice message from a woman called Frances trying to induce Rampart into losing the next day's match for her, and her friends, gambling profits.
- On August 10th, 2020, a fifth tweet shows a voice message that a man called Grimes left to Rampart. In this message, Grimes offers a good amount of cash for the turret (Sheila) he saw Rampart use in the Gauntlet.
- On August 11, 2020, "The Endorsement" was released.
- On August 14, 2020, the Season 6 Gameplay Trailer was released.
- Rampart's abilities are derived from Titanfall 2's A-Wall tactical ability. Her affinity for LMGs likely comes from the meta of using the Spitfire with the A-Wall for easy long-range kills.
- Rampart's symbol can be found on her clothing, weapons that she modded and in the Graffiti Mod icon. Reactive weapon skins from the Season 4, Season 5, and Season 6 Battle Passes also have this symbol engraved. It is present on Season 6 Battle Pass legendary skin for Pathfinder too.
- Rampart has been modding since she was 12 or 13.
- The weapons that Rampart modded are called "Ramparts".
- Due to some inaccurate leaks, there was a misconception that Rampart was a white male before she was revealed. (The dataminer responsible for the leak admitted that he paired names and faces through guesswork.) When Respawn was accused of "changing" Rampart's design, principal animator Moy Parra responded by stating that the leaked image was never Rampart and that designs cannot be changed on a whim. Knowing that people believed in the bad leaks, writer Tom Casiello seemingly created a male gunsmith character "Reginald" as a red herring to Rampart's identity on Twitter, before Rampart was revealed.
- While playing Rampart, the sound of a bubble popping can often be heard after landing on the ground from a fall that is higher than the player jump height since Rampart can be seen chewing gum and blowing bubbles in her menu animations, and in her icon on the legend select screen.
- Sheila shares a name with one of Valkyrie's ex's. Valkyrie is not exactly happy about Rampart using that name for her gun, and has asked her multiple times to change its name. 
- Rampart's Heirloom is the only heirloom to include an animation that involves a different legend entirely, that being Octane's leg in a rare door kick animation.
- Rampart is the currently the youngest Legend in the Apex Games (21), followed by Wattson (22) and Crypto (22-23).
- Rampart has a great deal of merchandise to her name, including shirts, hats, slippers, and action figures.  She additionally seems to have her own brand of beer. 
- Rampart once mocked Seer by modifying his heart chamber, causing his micro-drones to form the shapes of profanities. 
- Before moving out of the Paradise Lounge, Rampart stole Mirage's bathroom door.
