You hear their voices every day in-game, and their voicelines become synonymous with their characters, but who are the real people behind the Apex Legends roster? Here are all the Apex voice actors, and some other things you might recognize them from.

With a total of 16 characters now available, Apex Legends has exactly doubled the number of playable Legends since launch.

Each season, a new character is added, and that comes with a new voice actor. Here, we’ll be focusing on the English-speaking voice actors for each role.

There are also additional voices in the game, beyond the characters, such as the announcer, who you’ve probably heard more than anyone else.

Announcer: Zehra Fazal

Zehra Fazal is the voice of the Apex Games.

Technically, the first actor on the list isn’t actually the voice of a Legend. But, Fazal is probably the most common voice in the game. You’ll hear her throughout the match, keeping you up to date on the movements of the ring, and announcing who the champion squad is, kill leaders and more.

Zehra also voiced the Pathfinder Town Takeover, with all those quirky lines about fighting in the ring.

Bangalore: Erica Luttrell

Erica has featured in other games, including Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Twin Mirror, Star Wars: Squadrons, The Last of Us: Part II, and Fallout 76, among many others.

You may also recognize her from some on-screen roles, including HBO’s Westworld, or as Claire Rayburn in Salvation.

Bloodhound: Allegra Clark

Bloodhound’s voice actor, Allegra Clark, is one of the voices which might at first be unrecognizable. There are a number of effects applied to the voice recordings to achieve the metallic, grainy sound of Bloodhound’s voice, as they speak through their mask.

Allegra Clark is also a voice actor with a number of other video game credits, including the wildly popular Genshin Impact. Other credits include Dragon Age: Inquisition, where Allegra plays Josephine Montilyet, Star Wars: Squadrons, World of Warcraft and more.

Caustic: JB Blanc

Other game roles include Legends of Runeterra, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Mortal Kombat II, and Diablo III.

Richmond is a veteran actor, both on-screen and voice.

The voice of Gibraltar is none other than Branscombe Richmond. For a character like Gibraltar, a South Pacific islander, he requires a very particular voice. Richmond himself has English, Native American, Native Hawaiian, French, French Polynesian, Spanish, and Portuguese roots – an incredible array.

Unlike many of the other Apex Legends voice actors, Richmond hasn’t featured in quite as many video games. He has been in a variety of movies and TV shows, starting his career in the mid-1970s. He’s perhaps best-known for his role in The Scorpion King, and has featured in shows like The A-Team and Walker, Texas Ranger.

Loba was one of the most exciting new characters when she was added in Season 5, and the voice behind the classy thief is Fryda Wolff, a Las Vegas native with Mexican roots. Her mother was from Mexico, and so Fryda can also speak fluent Mexican-Spanish. In the game, Loba’s father is Portuguese.

Other games Fryda Wolff is featured in include Cyberpunk 2077 (Carol), Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Rage 2, The Elder Scrolls: Blades, Just Cause 4, and two Call of Duty games.

His most iconic role though, is probably as the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog – a role he played for over 10 years until his run ended in 2021.

Smith actually began his career in stand-up comedy, but his voice is so versatile and crisp, he’s been called upon to voice lots of roles in countless games and movies.

Roye also voices multiple characters in Cyberpunk 2077, and other games including Marvel’s Avengers, Resident Evil: Resistance, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Horizon Zero Dawn, and the Mafia series.

How to master Octane in Apex Legends: Abilities, tips, more

Season 8 has introduced a set of impactful buffs to Octane’s kit making his ultimate ability more reliable and effective. Of course, this means there’s no better time to master the Adrenaline Junkie and take over the Apex Games as Octane.

The launch of Season 8 of Apex Legends brought a range of new content to the game for players to experience. From the new Legend Fuse to the 30-30 Repeater, and of course, the introduction of the reworked King’s Canyon map.

On top of this, a host of buffs and nerfs were applied to existing Legends within the game, with Octane being the recipient of a number of significant changes.

Buffs to the Adrenaline Junkie’s Ultimate ability have made his kit more reliable in high-pressure situations and easier to control. So, mastering Octane in Season 8 could be a great way to win more games and dominate your matches.

How to make use of Octane’s abilities

Passive: Swift Mend

Respawn Entertainment
Octane’s passive automatically allows him to restore health.

Octane’s Passive ability Swift Mend allows him to automatically regenerate health over time. When out of combat, the Adrenaline Junkie will restore one health per second, giving him a great source of sustain between fights.

Swift Mend will even continue to work when Octane is knocked down but keep in mind it will not prevent him from bleeding out. Although the ability isn’t an auto-revive, it does mean that if one of your teammates can get you up in a gunfight, you’ll be able to jump into the skirmish a lot quicker than other Legends.

Of course, Octane’s passive won’t significantly impact any aggressive skirmishes, but for drawn-out gunfights, it can be an incredible ability.

Tactical: Stim

Octane stim
Respawn Entertainment
Octane’s Stim is his most iconic ability and the source of his speed.

Octane’s Tactical ability Stim allows him to increase his movement speed significantly for a short period of time. Once activated Stim will increase his sprint speed by 40% and his normal run speed by 30% for six seconds. Keep in mind this ability does cost Octane 12 health per-use, but due to his Passive ability, it doesn’t take Octane long to regenerate that back.

Although Stim can be useful for simple rotations, don’t underestimate the ability’s power in aggressive pushes. Octane is capable of closing the gap on an enemy incredibly quickly, allowing you to catch them off-guard and take them out. Of course, try not to be overly reckless with his movement speed – but it’s definitely a tool that can be used to your advantage.

Finally, keep in mind Octane cannot kill himself with the health cost from his Stim ability, so don’t be afraid to use it if you’re low on health and desperate for a way out.

Ultimate: Launch Pad

Launch Pad Octane
Respawn Entertainment
Every member of a squad can use Octane Ultimate ability.

Octane’s Ultimate Launch Pad gives him the ability to put down a device that propels him into the air and even gives him a double jump to shift direction. Compared to other Ultimate’s in the game, Octane’s Launch Pad is on an extremely low cooldown of 60 seconds, meaning players can regularly use it to make plays and push opponents.

It’s worth noting that in the Season 8 patch, Octane’s Launch Pad was reworked to give players more control over the direction that they fly. So, if you’re looking to fly in a horizontal direction, hit the pad while crouching. However, if you’re looking for a high-arc jump, head onto the pad in a normal standing position.

Although these changes are nothing huge, they do give Octane players more control over how they want to approach a fight using his Ultimate.

Octane tips and tricks

1. Don’t be afraid to use Stim

Octane Stim
Respawn Entertainment
Octane’s Stim ability has a two-second cooldown.

For a lot of new Octane players, using the Stim ability can feel strange as you’re losing health while it’s active, but as Swift Mend is available out of combat, it’s key you use Stim a lot.

Having access to a significant movement speed increase as soon as you drop into the map is incredibly powerful, especially in the early game. So, make sure you’re using Stim while looting to get geared up as quickly as possible. As the ability is on a two-second cooldown, you can afford to spam it and use Octane’s speed to your advantage.

Of course, there’s always a chance you get caught with lower health than an opponent, but Octane is a high-risk Legend that rewards an aggressive playstyle, so play to his strengths.

Look for flanks on enemies

Octane tricks
Respawn Entertainment
Octane has some of the best movement-based abilities in Apex, so make the most of them.

With Octane’s Launch Pad and Stim, you have all the tools to look for some amazing flanks. Whether you fly over the top of the gunfight with his Ultimate ability or use his tactical Stim to run around the side to find a devastating flank, it’s key you make the most of Octane’s movement-based kit.

Of course, this tip comes with the caveat that a flank is not always the right decision in a skirmish. Assess where your teammates are positioned and whether your solo mission may put them in harm’s way. If so, it may be better to take a standard approach and stick with your team.

Use his movement abilities as a getaway option

Respawn Entertainment
Don’t be afraid to use Octane’s Launch Pad as a means of retreat

Although Octane rewards an aggressive playstyle, not every gunfight will go to plan, so having a means of escape is key. For the Adrenaline Junkie, his aggressive abilities are also his defensive ones, so don’t be afraid to use his Ultimate to get out of a sticky situation.

The same applies with Stim, although it costs 12 health to use, the movement speed boost may be the difference-maker in you getting out alive.


Hopefully, this guide has given you plenty of tips and tricks to completely master Octane, the Adrenaline Junkie. Before long, you’ll be dominating the Apex Games and Stimming your way to victory.
