Dr Disrespect storms off stream in rage over Apex Legends audio issues

Dr Disrespect has returned to Apex Legends ahead of Season 4 and has already lashed out at the game’s audio, following a devastating death. 

The popular variety streamer has given a number of titles a try in recent times, anything from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to Escape from Tarkov. But, during a broadcast on February 3, he decided to give Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale game another go.

It didn’t take long, however, for the Two-Time Blockbuster video game champion to remind himself of one of the issues that may have driven him away from Apex in the first place – the audio.

Dr Disrespect has raged at a number of Apex Legends features in the past, including audio, weapons and more.

The Doc was playing as Lifeline during the stream, but with just five squads left and his teammates needing a revive, he was completely outnumbered.

With the odds already stacked against the Twitch star, he found himself right in the middle of a group of players – relying on the sounds coming through his headset to tell if any enemies were nearby.

After taking shots at a Pathfinder, but not finishing them off, it was only a matter of time before somebody snuk up behind him to put him out of his misery. Seconds later, his squad was eliminated. He screamed: “Where’s the audio? Where the f**k’s the audio? Where is it?” before storming off camera.

Right after that devastating death, Doc’s vintage loading screen appeared showing his head bounce from one side of the screen to the other, leaving fans eagerly anticipating his return. He soon came back, too, but just continued as normal – grabbing a bite to eat.

He added: “Fighting two guys and either that was a third or that was one of the two guys, but either way, I should have heard the person behind me.”

Dr Disrespect might not be the only player that’s hoping Apex Legends’ audio improves with the game’s next major update on February 4, which will see a brand new legend, Revenant, added to the game as part of Season 4.

Whether or not he’ll stick by the game during this time and give it another chance remains to be seen, but it’s always entertaining when he jumps into the Apex Games.

Respawn Entertainment has announced that they are delaying the official release of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, after announcing their launch on Steam for PC players.

The news that Apex was coming to Switch was first shared during the EA Play Live event on June 18, where they revealed the next stages of the game’s development. It finally put a host of rumors and leaks to bed since Apex’s debut back in 2019, as players wanted to immediately take the Arena with them on-the-go shortly after launch.

The news would have opened the game to expand its player count by millions, but Switch players will now have to wait a little longer after further delays were announced.

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date

Respawn confirmed that the new Switch port has been delayed until early 2021 after it was expected to arrive with the Steam version of the game.

“For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time,” Apex Game Director Chad Grenier confirmed, on October 23.

“This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out,” the Respawn dev continued, “Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year.”

Apex Legends will be on all the major consoles in early 2021.

While it is being delayed, he confirmed that it still arrive with all of the expected features, “of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.”

This won’t be the first time a major battle royale comes to Nintendo Switch. EA and Apex Legends are going to compete against Epic Games and Fortnite for the many battle royale fans on the platform.

The initial announcement was a longtime coming. Reports for a Nintendo Switch port have been around for about as long as Apex Legends has been released to the world.

In a 2019 interview only months after Apex’s release, Project lead at the time, Drew McCoy, said that the company knew a Nintendo port was on many people’s wishlist. Since then, it’s been a waiting game for Nintendo fans who have been waiting to get into the Arena.

There were a lot of questions revolving around the technical limitations of the Switch that would be a hurdle for a port, but the developers are now committed to releasing it early in 2021.

It’s unclear what the download size for the Switch version will be, so stay tuned to Dexerto for all the latest information on the upcoming Apex Legends port.
