The release of Wattson with Apex Legends Season 2 has already inspired players to come up with incredibly creative ways of eliminating their opponents, and when combined with Wraith, Wattson could be the deadliest Legend yet.

Wattson has a very unique set of skills, all relating to her control of electronics, with her traps and interception pylons proving useful ‘situational’ abilities, somewhat similar to Caustic’s gas traps.

Due to the stationary nature of her abilities though, players using Wattson are somtimes forced into a slower, more static, playstyle, which can be a disadvantage against some of the other, more mobile, legends.

Respawn EntertainmentWattson’s electric fences can be deadly when set up correctly in Apex Legends.

Despite her slower play style, Wattson can actually excel when paired with Wraith, as long as you and a teammate work together in a duo.

Wattson’s tactical ability, Perimeter Security, allows her to create electric fences and nodes, which can completely set up a room as one big trap, but, with how obvious the traps are, luring enemies in is a bit tricker.

Reddit user Kevthekings99_YT and his squad found a method though, using Wraith. By using her portal to bait enemy players into chasing after a kill, Wraith can force opponents to land directly in the trap’s zone, allowing Wattson to mow them down and claim a potentially easy squad wipe. 

Even though the trap works brilliantly like this, some also suggested adding a Caustic player into the mix, to make for an even deadlier trap for unsuspecting players.

This is not the first idea that players have come up with which makes use of Wattson’s abilities to set up electric traps to eliminate opponents, as player’s have also been taking advantage of doors to incorporate the new legend’s play style.

The Wraith and Wattson combo makes for a great opportunity to pick up kills if you can find a room to set-up early, although the strategy will be much less viable in some of the more open areas of King’s Canyon.

Unsurprisingly, this tactic was shown to be most effective in bunker, where Caustic usually reigns supreme with his deadly gas traps in tight spaces.

Respawn EntertainmentCaustic was previously king of the bunker – does he have a new challenger?

But, with Wattson’s arrival, Caustic may be facing some competition for dominance in tight spots like bunker, with her traps able to surprise players trying to take the shortcut through bunkers.

Even if you’re not playing with Wraith, placing Wattson’s traps directly next to a large closed door will often also take players by surprise, giving you and your squad a big advantage.

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.
