Leaked Apex Legends weapon finally spotted in Season 4 trailer

Apex Legends fans have identified a new weapon in the Season 4: Assimilation trailer that might be coming to the game soon.

The major focus of the new trailer released on January 30 was Revenant, who has now been confirmed as a Legend for Season 4 after murdering previously-announced character Forge.

New Legends aren’t the only thing that a new season typically brings, however, with most also introducing new weapons for players to pick up. A new ‘Sentinel’ sniper has already been confirmed for Season 4, but players are speculating that another new weapon could be on its way after Titanfall 2’s Sidewinder was spotted in the trailer.

Near the start of the trailer, which follows Revenant as he fulfils a contract to kill a thief, the character – who sees himself as a man, rather than a machine – trails his hand across a table, underneath which is a weapon.

As identified by Reddit user Lemondrawp, this weapon appears to be the Sidewinder, a micro rocket launcher found in Titanfall 2.

The Sidewinder was designed as an anti-Titan weapon in the Titanfall universe, so it’s not too surprising that it wasn’t among the original arsenal to be brought over to Apex, but with it having been deliberately placed in the Apex Season 4 trailer it seems that could be about to change.

Animations for the Sidewinder, along with several other weapons, were discovered in the game’s files back in September, although with Apex being built upon the foundation of Titanfall, this was no guarantee that it would ever actually be introduced to the battle royale. Now, however, it seems very possible that it could be set for release in Season 4.

Season 4 of Apex Legends is due to kick off on February 4, making the one-year anniversary of the game’s release. Though fans now know more about what to expect from the new season, many of the teasers and trailers have raised as many questions as they gave answers – such as the true fate of Forge, for instance, who many still believe must have some greater part to play in the game’s unfolding story.

As for whether the Sidewinder is really about to be added to the game, players will likely just have to wait and see.

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.
