Apex Legends creates amazing real-life Bloodhound finisher

There are a lot of executions available in Apex Legends and some of them are pretty cool. However, none of them quite match this live-action finish by Bloodhound.

While Apex Legends takes a lot of cues from other battle royale games, there are also numerous things it does that are completely original.

The respawn system, pinging and executions all come to mind as things you don’t find as staples in other battle royale games. The executions especially are really interesting as players are able to perform some pretty cool moves on downed opponents.

This fan-made video definitely elevates executions as you know them as it shows what a Bloodhound execution could look like in live-action.

Bloodhound is one of Apex Legends’ most popular characters so it makes sense they are one of the first Legends to receive the live reenactment with a finisher.

In the eight-second clip you can see Bloodhound, rather viciously, stab what appears to be a Fortnite Raptor skin with a crow. It’s a pretty gruesome way to go out but we’re willing to let the Fortnite skin get sacrificed if it means this Bloodhound finisher can live.

In the ongoing battle of Fortnite vs. Apex Legends, it looks like the edge goes to Apex, at least in this round. It also doesn’t help that Fortnite received a very controversial update that has upset numerous members of the community.

It looks like Bloodhound murder the Raptor.

Each of the Apex Legends characters all have their own unique finisher so it’d be interesting to see what they would all look like under these circumstances.

Perhaps none of them would be quite as gruesome as Bloodhound’s with the crow execution. Pathfinder could certainly make something work with a zipline-style execution but that’s a different project for a different day.

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
