Devious Apex Legends trap sentences players to Caustic’s “Hellevator”

A new variation for a classic trap in Apex Legends essentially condemns players to a fuming death at the hands of Caustic and Wraith, and it’s so brutal some players have taken to calling it the “Hellevator.”

Ever since Season 1 on Kings Canyon, Caustic mains have been devising ways to conceal players in a confined area long enough for their Nox Gas Traps to slowly and mercilessly eliminate opponents.

The most prevalent example was located in Bunker back on Solace. But the creative members of the Apex community constantly find new ways to create these gaseous enclosures for others to walk into.

The base of the fall lined with Nox Gas Traps.

Putting their disturbing imagination to work, Reddit user ‘whataboi_rd’ and co’s creation used the typical bait of Wraith’s Dimensional Rift to lure an unsuspecting opponent to the other end.

Having caught the attention of the Bloodhound, they were whisked away to another location, dropping the Technological Trapper and Wraith from a high-beam structure just outside of the Train Yard.

Moments before, Wraith dropped down from that perch while activating her ult, forcing anyone who came through to spawn in mid-air and dropdown.

At the base, five Nox Gas Traps were lined up on two of the tower’s four sides – sectioning off the lone opponent while Wraith and her teammate enclosed them from the other end.

“I got some of my friends to help me set up traps and bait people into them,” whataboi said in his YouTube video’s description. “This is by far the best way to play Apex Legends.”

Dubbing their trap the “Hellevator,” whataboi_rd applied the same structure to other locations on World’s Edge.

The trap made it nearly impossible for Bloodhound to escape.

One of them was an adaptation of the “Bunker 2.0” technique that was popular with the Apex community. Though their execution was successful, the follow-through was a little botched with a lack of coordination among the chaos.

But the effects were still the same. Use a Wraith to leave a portal in mid-air to throw off the opponents and immediately rain down gunfire on them as soon as they’re debilitated from the Nox Gas.

Since this strategy is bound to get traction with Caustic mains, Apex Legends player should be wary of a lone Wraith trying to bait you into a portal — who knows what kind of devious traps could be waiting at the other end.

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.
