Apex Legends hacker brags that Respawn can’t catch them, gets banned anyway

Taunting a game’s developer by claiming you’re an unbannable cheater isn’t going to land you in anyone’s good books – yet it’s exactly what one Apex Legends streamer decided to do live on air.

How is Respawn combatting Apex Legends cheaters?

Respawn Entertainment recently sent out a ban wave to a number of players who had been using exploits in their popular battle royale, banning a whole load of new accounts.

While some may have slipped through the cracks, and ended up wrecking popular players like Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek live on-stream, others decided to hilariously taunt Respawn’s capabilities to ban players while the developer and fans watched on.

Respawn EntertainmentOver 50 million players have tried their hand at Apex Legends – yet it’s only a small minority that have been cheating.

Breaking down the ironic twist

While the VOD of the stream had been deleted, one intrepid Reddit user, SaladinsSaladbar, gave readers a blow-by-blow rundown of the action that they had missed – including back-to-back bans for the braggadocios streamer.

During the play-by-play breakdown, the Reddit user detailed just how much time and effort the streamer put into trying to avoid a ban, while claiming not to care all that much about what happened to their accounts.

Yet, it wasn’t an all too successful strategy as the streamer ended up receiving a ban twice in a ten minute period, before ultimately walking away from the game and deciding to broadcast some other content.

Respawn devs respond

One Respawn developer, posting under the Reddit username ‘lowkeydbjosh’ took credit for the continuous shutdowns of the hacker, stating: “This is how I spent 45 mins this morning,” with a waving emoji attached.

While other users tried to thank them for their hard work, they instead turned the credit onto the players. “Nah, this was thanks to you guys bringing these type of folks to the spotlight. Helps us clean up the game faster,” added lowkeydbjosh.

While Respawn are doing their utmost to prevent players with exploits washing over their game, there are always going to be users who get their hands on ways to cheat and ruin matches.

Yet, it seems like they are at least on top of a few rogue users – especially those who try their best to flaunt their blatant cheating in the face of the developer.

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.
