A strange bug has been discovered in Apex Legends that’s causing players to suffer untimely deaths for apparently no reason.

Despite the fact that it’s been one of the most popular online multiplayer games since its release, Apex Legends continues to be plagued by a large variety of bugs, glitches, exploits, and hacks.

While some of the bugs are minor and have mild effects, others, like the one that’s found recently, can potentially be game-breaking and ruin players’ gaming experience. 

Player sees teammates die for no reason

On May 1, Reddit user ‘thedarkmuse’ posted a gameplay clip from one of his matches in Apex Legends which showed the effects of this inexplicable glitch. 

In the clip, the player and his squad were looting the supply ship when his teammates noticed a few death boxes stuck between the ship’s main body and one of its thrusters.

Respawn EntertainmentThis is not the first odd bug discovered to exist on the Supply Ship.

Deciding to loot those death boxes, both teammates jumped down from the side of the ship to the thruster, but as soon as they got close enough to start looting, they immediately got eliminated and their death boxes added to the stash that was already there.

The in-game kill-feed indicated that both players got “crushed,” and despite their third teammate still being alive, they got fully eliminated right away and were never in a knocked state, which means they never got the chance to be revived. 

Similar to other insta-death bugs

This is not the only instance where a bug in Apex Legends has caused players to inexplicably get fully eliminated with no apparent reason whatsoever.

It’s been widely documented that certain points on the map have issues with their coding, and when players step on those specific points, they game reacts as if they’d fallen off the map and causes them to be instantly eliminated. 

Of course, the fact that the Supply Ship can be buggy is a fact well-documented, and it became apparent when a different glitch was causing players to awkwardly slide across its surface and meet their doom. 

Another example of insta-death bugs includes one that randomly applies a fatal amount of fall damage to players flying down from a respawn ship, an example of which can be seen in the video below. 

Long list of game-breaking bugs in Apex Legends

It goes without saying that experiencing bugs like these can lead to a very frustrating gaming experience, and can eventually cause players to turn away from Apex Legends.

While some glitches can be put up with, the truly game-breaking ones pose a real threat to the game’s longevity and integrity, which is why Respawn should make fixing and cleaning up the game a top priority.

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.
