One of the good things about this update was Revenant got some much-needed buffs and has been gaining popularity since. Revenant has always been a cool-looking legend, but players were apprehensive of using him, courtesy of his lack of ability to climb structures.

His inability to climb saw him go down in popularity, and this displeased players who really wanted to use Revenant to get some wins. Fortunately, Respawn took heed of these calls and the complaints of the players and gave Revenant some much-needed buffs.
