Apex Legends Evolution: Big Maude

Apex Legends Big Maude

Big Maude is Rampart’s custom shop located near Lava City in World’s Edge. This POI is big enough to accommodate a few teams fighting over the shop itself, which features a paintball course. Inside the shop, players can use collected materials to purchase Rampart’s Custom Modded Paintball Weapons from the new Vend-it Machines. These guns cost a bit, but they come fully kitted at different tiers. It will allow players to purchase weapons mid-game if they do not find the right attachments.

The Collection event will run from 14th September to 21st September which will feature event-exclusive cosmetics and unlocking all 24 cosmetics will unlock Rampart’s “Problem Solver” heirloom which is a wrench with a bubble gum compartment inside.

Rampart’s Arenas Extravaganza will be available in Arenas as a limited-time mode (LTM) and some weapons will get special discounts to shake up the Arenas meta while also helping players unlock cosmetics, XP boosts, and more.
