If you’re an Apex Legends player looking to get better at eliminating prowlers in the game’s weekly hunts, you’ve come to the right place, as this tip looks to be a serious winner. 

Respawn Entertainment pulled the trigger in Season 5 with quests, finally adding a PVE way to play – something that had been requested by players for some time.

That doesn’t mean to say that things have come easy, though, as floods of deadly prowlers can quickly take you down if you’re not careful.

Apex Legends Broken Ghost: High Octane

Respawn Entertainment
Prowlers aren’t the easiest enemies to fend off.

The fourth hunt of the “Broken Ghost” quest started up on June 10, and it’s called High Octane. In an effort to grab another piece of the artifact, fending off monsters that are on the hunt for anything living will be your top priority.

It can be easy to get overwhelmed with so many rushing towards you at one time, especially in open areas of the night time version of Kings Canyon, but one Redditor has revealed a handy trick just about everybody can use to pick them off one by one.

Easy tip to help you on today’s quest from apexlegends

As seen in the video above, user CGriffo55 uses Octane’s Launch Pad to constantly plunge the character high into the sky, but timing the fall is crucial. As you come down, landing again on the jump pad allows the player to basically yo-yo high in the sky, and use their weapon to eliminate prowlers as they approach.

If you’re giving this sure-fire tactic a shot, do try to keep ammo in mind. The last thing you want to do is round up a load of these deadly monsters and end up bouncing around in the air with no way of defending yourself.

Another user in the thread suggested another tactic as well, which involves Caustic. They said: “I rode the zip line back and forth and just set caustic traps everywhere,” and that doesn’t sound like a bad idea, either.

It also shows that there’s more than one legend capable of rinsing through the prowlers with ease, so good luck in your latest hunt! Hopefully, these tricks help.

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.
