Is Apex Legends Revenant live, undead, or something else? However you want to refer to him, his arrival signalled the beginning of season 4 and introduced us to the robotic assassin, and who is better suited to that profession than a heartless machine. It's maybe best not to refer to him as a hero in Apex Legends (opens in new tab), on account of him having the whole 'ageless murder cyborg' look going on, but he's still a fun character to play around with. Here's everything we know about Apex Legends Revenant, his abilities, and even his voice actor. You've forgotten about Forge (opens in new tab) already, haven't you?

The Apex Legends Revenant abilities have finally been confirmed. As you might have suspected, he's set up to be the best pure assassin of the game, with abilities that help him outmanoeuvre enemies, lock them down, and even cheat death. Here are the Apex Legends Revenant abilities you'll be working with:

Passive ability: Stalker
Revenant crouch walks faster than other heroes, and he can also clamber up higher walls.

Tactical ability: Silence
Using this ability, Revenant throws a gadget that both deals damage and disables enemy abilities for 10 seconds.

Ultimate ability: Death Totem
Revenant's Ultimate basically gives his friendlies an extra life, as long as he gets it out in time. If his totem is deployed, whoever drops will first will reappear at its location with 1 HP instead of getting downed or killed.

Low profile
Like other Legends that are smaller and thus harder to hit, Revenant takes 5% more damage.

Apex Legends Revenant voice actor 

Apex Legends Revenant isn't much of a talker, but if you think the few words he has uttered sound familiar then it's because it's Darin De Paul, most famous for playing Reinhardt in Overwatch. He's also J. Jonah Jameson in Spider-Man PS4, Reed Tobson in The Outer Worlds, Emperor Calus in Destiny 2, Owl in Sekiro, and has a host of credits in games like Red Dead Redemption 2, Death Stranding and plenty more. That's some serious talent behind the mask then.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
