Apex Legends streamer shivfps lost his mind after he witnessed a hacker snap from player to player on their way to claiming a victory.

Hacking, cheating, or just getting an unfair leg-up is one of the worst things you can encounter in a multiplayer title as it can very much ruin your experience – be it as a casual newbie who is trying a game out for the first time or an experienced pro who has already climbed the mountain.

It’s made worse, though, when you fall into the latter category and you’re supposed to be separated away from cheaters through systems like skill-based matchmaking and ranked mode just like Apex Legends has.

Respawn EntertainmentRespawn have cracked down on cheaters in Apex Legends but plenty of hackers still rear their heads.

So, it was pretty understandable that shivfps absolutely lost his mind when he witnessed a pretty blatant cheater in his high-level game. “What f**king losers dude, holy sh*t, ridiculous,” he said during his January 4 stream as he watched the final few moments.

“You’ve got aimbot anyway, you’ll win every f**king fight,” shiv added after sending in a report for aim-locking. As the player in question started snapping back and forth between players moments later, the streamer completely lost it.

“Holy sh*t, oh my god man, holy f**k he’s the best player in the f**king game,” he yelled, before taking his rage up a level. “Holy sh*t, rank one. Rank f**king one player dude! Holy sh*t, get the f**k out of here – someone sign this f**king man up. Disgusting man. Best player in the f**king game, holy sh*t. Best player in the f**king world man.”

Now, considering he has video evidence to go alongside his multiple in-game reports, shiv could very well see something done about this hacker in question.

Whether or not Respawn will further crackdown on the exploits – like they have done since the game launched and avoided a bit of an epidemic – very much remains to be seen.

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.
