An Apex Legends player has got an interesting concept that would change Rampart’s current passive ability and help her become the ultimate late game camper. 

After plenty of speculation, Rampart finally joined Apex Legends’ roster of character with the Season 6 update – with her abilities certainly being a change from the way Respawn usually does thing. 

As a result, you can regularly find Rampart, her Sheila minigun ultimate, and her amped cover throughout both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge, but players have been begging for a buff of some kind.

Respawn have not yet confirmed if the legend will be receiving a boost at some point, but that hasn’t stopped players takings things into their own hands by devising a few interesting buffs – including one for her passive.

The new Apex Legends season has given fans the chance to finally play as Rampart.

The idea comes from Reddit user NakolStudios, who suggests that the modder could tap into her creative side by changing out the additional ammo and magazine sizes from her current passive for the ability to repair and modify doors.

Yes, you read that right, repair and modify doors. The idea would be that if Rampart upgrades a door on a building, it could withstand more damage than normal from melee attacks or grenades. 

Combined with her amped cover, this could make the legend pretty difficult to displace if she and her teammates are cooped up in a building.

While the idea is pretty interesting, and certainly something some fans might want to see, Rampart is more of a modder than a carpenter – so it might just be a touch out of her wheelhouse. 

Respawn have also previously stated that they are unable to flat out copy fan ideas so if they wanted to use the idea, they’d have to tweak it in some way – so you’d probably end up with something pretty different anyway.

With the recent arrival of Season 7, Apex Legends fans are jumping into Olympus with all of their favorite Legends. One voice actor of the non-binary Bloodhound recently shared what they sound like prior to vocal edits.

Arriving alongside the launch of Apex Legends back in 2019, Bloodhound was one of the first Legends available for players to utilize in matches. Billed as a legendary hunter, this Technological Tracker is the first non-binary character in the hit battle royale.

As the Apex seasons have progressed, the character has become increasingly powerful and seen their popularity grown.

So, in a peek behind the scenes, the voice actor behind Bloodhound has revealed how they sound before Respawn adds a few tweaks to make it sound as it does now.

Bloodhound is, quite simply, one of Apex’s most popular legends.

The voice behind the mask

In a recent post to their TikTok account, voice actor Allegra Clark shared a clip of what the voice lines she records sound like prior to editing.

Stating that “what I do is only part of the vocal performance,” Clark details that a cool gas-mask vocal effect also pitches down her voice about two steps.

While the direction Allegra was originally given was that of an “androgynous, badass place,” she then goes on to share what Bloodhound’s iconic voice sounds like pre-editing. With a stark contrast to her regular voice, Clark’s vocal modulation and Icelandic/Old Norse accent instantly show off that recognizable cadence they have with their iconic lines.

The fans react

Shared on Reddit by IIIlandist, fans have been reacting to the non-binary character’s lines being heard without the filter.

One commenter stated: “when she said Mozambique here I felt that,” with another adding, “when she said Mozambique here I died.” Fans of the character were excited to hear how their vocal performance came about and seeing the effort of production that goes into creating the Legend.

It’s incredibly interesting seeing behind the scenes information regarding voice work and the like. This clip shared by Clark is no exception.
