A new exploit has been discovered in Apex Legends that is allowing players to ‘double pump’ without having to do through some difficult or elaborate process.

What is Double Pumping and how does it work?

The term ‘double pump’ is a commonly used to describe a mechanic in shooter games that allows players to rapidly shoot with two pump-action shotguns and avoid the small delay that occurs when one is fired.

Interestingly enough, double pumping in Apex Legends has never required two Peacekeepers, and instead has relied on an exploit that minimizes the animation between each shots to make the fire rate a lot faster.

Either way, when used correctly, this method combines the power and damage potential of a pump shotgun with the fire rate of an automatic shotgun, which is why it’s considered to be very overpowered.  

Double pumping combines the power of the Peacekeeper with the rapid fire rate of the EVA-8.

How to Double Pump in Apex Legends

On April 2, YouTuber ‘Skeltano,’ who is known for discovering numerous exploits in Apex Legends, posted a video describing a new method to easy double pump.

The first step is to make sure that you know which buttons you have assigned for melee, Ultimate Ability, and Ping, which are set to V, Q, and the middle mouse button by default.

With the Peacekeeper out and ready, to double pump you simply have to shoot, press the three buttons mentioned above, and shoot again, continuing to press the three buttons immediately after every shot to allow for a fast fire rate.

A demonstration of this technique in action can be seen in the video below:

How is this better than the previous Double Pump method?

Prior to the discovery of this new Peacekeeper exploit, there already had been a way to do double pump in Apex Legends, but the process was a lot more difficult to execute each time.

The previous method was a lot more timing-based than the new technique, so if you did not time the button combination exactly, the double pump would not work, and this lack of reliability made the method a lot less viable during gunfights.

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.
