Incredibly accurate Mirage impression trolls Apex Legends players

Voice actor and impressionist ‘TheRazorHail’ has Apex Legends players bamboozled into thinking he is the voice behind Mirage from Respawn Entertainment’s popular battle royale.

Apex Legends’ third season has been an unprecedented success for Respawn thus far; from a brand new Legend to the release of a new weapon, the community has been basking in the plethora of new content.

Following the release of the Fight or Fright Collection event, players have been lapping up the eerie return of Kings Canyon and all of the Halloween–themed cosmetics.

Respawn EntertainmentMirage was among the Legends who received a spooky makeover.

Aside from the host of new content, players have been enjoying the new World’s Edge map — which has seen the battle royale arena shifted to an entire new planet where players can showcase their skills in the new, refreshed meta. 

Coming in with a meta of his own is voice actor, @TheRazorHail. Of course, communication is key, but the impressionist has been lampooning his way through Season 3 with Mirage mimicry that would give actual actor, Roger Craig Smith a run for his money.

Playing as the Holographic Trickster, Hail interacts through the in-game voice chat with quips of his own, such as: “Mirage here to stick a needle in your chest that doesn’t really work, but it kinda works — here ya go.”

From savvy quips to hilarious trolls, the self-proclaimed voice actor creates a parody that is put together with some snappy ‘meme–themed’ editing. While his comedic skit is entertaining to say the least, Hail’s Mirage impression is so clear-cut, he has people fooled into believing that he is the Mirage voice actor.

The series of videos posted by Hail aren’t the only garnering of this kind, with Pathfinder voice actor, Chris Edgerly, frequently interacting with his Mixer followers and creating hilarious spoofs off the back of his streams. 

Of course, TheRazorHail is simply posting these compilation videos to his YouTube channel for amusement, yet the aspiring voice actor might have a future in the games industry given his talents.

Apex Legends Season 7 is almost here, and that means changes to characters. So, we’ve rounded up all the buffs that Respawn have confirmed so far.

With each new Apex Legends season, players are always looking forward to getting their hands on a new Legend as well as seeing what’s been changed to existing Legends, weapons, and items.

As Season 7 is on the horizon, Respawn have begun to roll out their teasers – with a familiar-looking UFO turning up on both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.

Aside from that, the devs have also been planting seeds about what buffs and nerfs are coming in the new season. So, we’ve rounded up the buffs that we know about so far.

Mirage

As one of Apex’s most popular characters, players have been desperate for Respawn to give Mirage a power increase, even after his abilities rework.

Those changes have always been on the horizon, as devs have answered numerous questions with positives answers about buffs, and those promises will finally come to fruition with the start of Season 7.

Daniel Klein, a game designer for Respawn, confirmed that they’ve been testing changes to his Life of the Party ult, so that could be the main change that the Holographic Trickster receives next season.

Octane

Octane is also confirmed to be getting some positive treatment, but Respawn say it will only be a “tiny buff,” so no indication exactly what it will be yet. 

Rampart

As for Rampart, while a buff has been confirmed, there haven’t been any hints as to what it could entail. Since her introduction, players have made a number of suggestions – including being able to move around while firing her minigun. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see on that front.

Pathfinder

Pathfinder will also be receiving a change to the cooldown on his grapple ability. However, the last time this was labeled a buff, it actually turned out to be a nerf

Audio

Not a buff as such, but Respawn have also confirmed that lots of progress has been made on audio problems, which have been plaguing the game for months, and these fixes will be coming in Season 7.

As for what else is coming in Season 7, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know here. We’ll just have to wait until November 4, when the new season starts, to see it all in action.
