How to rapid-fire a Peacekeeper in Apex Legends for maximum damage

The Apex Legends Peacekeeper may have been nerfed, but players are still finding ways to make it perform above and beyond its abilities – including this method that turns it into an automatic weapon.

On November 22, Apex Legends players were caught off guard by an update that effectively nerfed the Peacekeeper by decreasing the headshot damage, and increasing the rechamber time.

Despite the nerf, this weapon is still very powerful, and still remains favored by many players over the automatic EVA-8 shotgun. However, some players have found a way to essentially turn the Peacekeeper into an automatic weapon, which helps elevate it to easily one of the strongest weapons in the game.

Reddit user Voppo showed that if you have two different sights for the Peacekeeper, you can drop one of them on the ground and use it to shoot the gun faster.

By juggling the two sights and taking advantage of an animation cancel, you’re able to unload a whole clip from the Peacekeeper much faster.

It is worth mentioning that you likely won’t be running into this a whole lot in a real game since it is very situational.

Where it would be handy is when defending a door or hallway, somewhere you can act as a major barrier to anyone trying to get through.

If you’re looking for a good team to group up with, whether it’s Duos or Squads, then you could perhaps consider a strategy with Caustic or Wattson where you could lock a room down and camp.

For the time being, this isn’t too powerful of a method, but it could certainly become one if enough players catch wind of it, and figure out more ideal situations where it’d come in handy.

If it ever becomes widespread, we can expect to see Respawn step in and put an end to it, as this is surely not working as intended.

You can keep an eye on it yourself to see if it’s set for a fix by checking the Apex Legends Trello page. We’ll keep you updated if this is ever patched out of the game.

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.

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.
