Several Apex Legends players have reported seeing dragons, officially called Flyers in-game, flying around King’s Canyon, possibly indicating they will play a big role in the upcoming second season.

Through datamines and timely reveals from Respawn themselves, players have at least had an indication flyers would be coming to Apex Legends eventually. 

It now looks like that day has arrived as many players have reported seeing dragons flying around in the world. Season 2 is just right around the corner so this does make sense.

Dragons have arrived

Numerous players have uploaded videos to social media showing that flyers do exist in Apex Legends but they are currently just flying around and not doing a whole lot.

So far there’s no reason to expect the flyers to be hostile and they actually have been flying around carrying loot for players to get. One player even decided to land on one of them and get the loot.

Respawn likely has something bigger in store for the flyers once Season 2 rolls around but we at least have a better idea with what to expect so far.

If the developers are interested in telling a story with the flyers, this is certainly a good start and it will be interesting to see how this plays out going forward. 

One thing that is worth pointing out is they aren’t all that big just yet, meaning they’ll have a chance to grow larger as the season progressed.

At the very least, it’ll be exciting to see what Respawn has in store for the flyers going forward.

We don’t really know a ton about the lore of Apex Legends but we know the upcoming Legend Wattson’s father build the Apex Arena and now we can throw flyers into the mix.

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.
