Another Apex Legends fan has picked up the musical torch, this time using in-game voice lines from Mirage as the featured vocalist.

Most popular games will see fans express their own creativity through the game’s world and characters. Most commonly this takes the form of fan art, cosplay, or concept designs for new cosmetic or gameplay features.

Apex Legends, however, seems to have brought out its players’ musical side. Reddit user u/its_xaro93 might have started a trend by releasing “Mozambique ‘ere”, a song using Lifeline’s in-game voice lines for lyrics, re-imagining her under the stage name “Lil LL”.

Respawn EntertainmentApex Legends has quickly become one of the most popular games in the world, recently passing 50 million global players.

Taking inspiration from u/its_xaro93, Mik Toroi has expanded the Apex Legends discography with their own track, this time featuring Mirage in “Bamboozled”.

“Hey you jumped, you ran, you shot a thing maybe, but then you met me and, well, here we are,” Mirage begins, before launching into a verse of characteristic egotism.

Fans of these kinds of creations will be pleased to see their continued popularity with fans on the Apex Legends subreddit, which is likely to only encourage more Apex-inspired music.

Meanwhile, u/its_xaro93 has also come back with his own addition to the collection, this time a guitar-heavy track featuring Caustic titled “Everything Dies”.

If the likes of u/its_xaro93 and Mik Toroi continue to both make and inspire more Apex-themed music, it won’t be long before fans will be able to compile a full album of songs performed by the game’s characters.

Respawn game designer Daniel Klein has revealed why Octane will be receiving a small buff in the seventh season of Apex Legends, addressing some concerns around the fan-favorite character.

There are now 14 unique characters in Apex Legends and with another Legend, who was teased to be Horizon, on the way in Season 7, many players are hoping for their favorite characters to receive buffs in the coming updates.

Plenty of Apex fans have been calling for the Adrenaline Junkie, Octane, to get buffed in recent patches. Despite being one of the most popular characters he does not have a strong win rate in Season 6.

As it is unclear what could be done to boost the character’s performance, with some Octane fans even asking for full rework, many players have called on Respawn devs to help improve his chances at winning.

Following the release of the latest patch, one Apex player Iraakeane asked Apex devs when Octane would be getting buffed or reworked, and Respawn Game designer Daniel Klein finally responded to fans’ concerns.

The Apex dev revealed that Octane would be getting a “tiny buff” in the next season, although he did not share what exactly will change about the high-flying daredevil in-game.

“Octane’s got a very high pick rate (a lot of people play him) and also a very high encounter win rate (he wins individual engagements a lot),” Klein added, before revealing why the popular character needed a small buff.

“It’s just his trios win rate that’s low,” he shared, suggesting that they were happy with his current state, “that’s kind of okay: he’s a selfish, charge-in-guns-blazing character who’s a ton of fun to play but also eventually gets himself killed.”

As of now, it is unclear just what kind of buff Octane will receive, but fans will likely have to wait until the season’s end on November 4 to find out for sure.

There have been a few other buffs revealed by Respawn for Season 7, as characters like Mirage are set to receive some “scary” changes in the next few weeks.
