Bizarre Apex Legends bug makes Wraith’s portal a death trap

This unusual glitch with Wraith’s Dimensional Rift has led to Apex Legends players being completely trapped in a ceiling.

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royale games available, however, it does also come with its fair share of glitches and exploits.

Although they tend to get patched by developers Respawn Entertainment relatively quickly, any player who is lucky (or unlucky) enough to encounter them can often have their game ruined.

Respawn EntertainmentWraith’s Dimension Rift ability has been the cause of many glitches in Apex Legends.

Wraith’s ultimate ability, Dimensional Rift, has been host to many bugs in the past due to the unique nature of the two portals that it opens.

One Apex Legends player, u/TechnoPup, revealed that they had encountered yet another glitch with the fan-favorite character after they chased an opposing Wraith through a portal.

To their surprise when they came out the other end of the Dimensional Rift, TechnoPup appeared to have been trapped in the ceiling while remnants of the portal remained around their character.

TechnoPup seemed to try everything to escape from the glitch, even using Pathfinder’s grapple ability to pull the character out of it.

However, unfortunately for the player, even that did not seem to do the trick, as the grapple just continued to cycle endlessly against the floor.

“After the recording, a lifeline walked in and killed me. I was knocked in the air.” the player later commented, explaining that even after being knocked they could not escape the bug.

There have been similar bugs including Wraith’s portal in the past, including one where the player was stuck in a continuous loop while traveling between the character’s two rifts.

Others even allowed players to create infinite portals, though this was later patched in an update, but had been possible for months.

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.
