Ramya Parekh, known commonly by her nickname Rampart, is a playable Legend introduced in sixth season of the Apex Games.

Background

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.”

Abilities

Tactical Ability: Amped Cover

Build a crouch-cover wall, which deploys a full-cover amped wall that blocks incoming shots and amps outgoing shots by 20%. You can have up to 3 charges of this, and can place up to 5 of these at once. If you pick it up undamaged, you get a charge back. It can be destroyed while setting up shield

Passive Ability: Modded Loader

Increased magazine/heat capacity and faster reloads when using LMGs and the Minigun.

Ultimate Ability: Emplaced Minigun “Sheila”

Place a mounted machine gun that anyone can use. This has an infinite ammo reserve capacity, in exchange for long reload time and limited movement. Picking it back up recharges 50% of your ultimate, and you can place 3 of these down at once.
