With every seasonal update, Respawn adds another character to the ever-growing Apex Legends roster and Season 14 will certainly be no different. A new data leak from Apex Legends has one content creator claiming the new Legend in Season 14 will be a hero called “Vantage.”
ThordanSmash, Apex Legends YouTube content creator, recently uploaded a video to his YouTube channel on June 5 claiming that a new leak from the game has revealed the next Legend to be added in the upcoming content season — Season 14. According to him, the appearance of some unfamiliar banner images and practice range gameplay has given away the new Legend’s identity.
Vantage was one of the heroes previously revealed in a major data dump and one of two legends that had finished models already prepared for release — with the other being Newcastle. However, at first, clues suggested that the Legend was called Hawk, but major leaks in March appeared to show that Respawn changed their name to Vantage.
Who is Vantage in Apex Legends?
Vantage is a survivalist sniper reconnaissance character with a kit that specializes in gathering information about the enemy before striking. Vantage is a long-range specialist with access to a custom sniper rifle, that even provides a damage buff for their teammates.

When it comes to gameplay, the major leak that was posted to the ApexUncovered subreddit in March showcased all of Vantage’s abilities.
You can check out a full detailed description of their abilities below:
- Passive: Sniper Kit – Tactical info available in ADS unarmed or any long-range scopes (Legend name, shield rarity, team size, and range).
- Tactical: Echo Launch – Launch towards your winged companion, Echo. Order Echo by tapping Q. Launch to Echo by holding Q.
- Ultimate: Mark to Kill – A custom rifle which scans enemies and boosts damage for Vantage and her squad. Damage doubles for Vantage on successive shots. Team gets 15% bonus on marked targets.
Thordan also explained that the next season will also feature the ‘Goliath’ event on Storm Point, suggesting Vantage may have a backstory tied in with it. For now, however, until Respawn Entertainment steps forward to confirm this information, players will just have to wait for the official reveal.
