Alinity trolls salty Apex Legends player after beating them while drunk

Twitch streamer Alinity Divine was in the middle of an Apex Legends broadcast when her friend brought a salty tweet from a fellow player to her attention — and her response was a surprising own.

Aside from her cat-tossing controversy, Alinity is known for being a massive Apex Legends enthusiast, often broadcasting the popular battle royale game on her channel.

With her considerable play time in mind, it comes as little surprise that the streamer has some pretty fine-honed FPS skills, which she unleashed on an unfortunate opponent during a March broadcast.

In a close 1v1 gunfight, Alinity managed to get the jump on her opponent and even ended up taking the game as Wraith.

While she seemed fairly focused, it turns out that the internet star was actually quite inebriated, as revealed a short time later.

A few moments after her victory, a friend over voice chat told her that he came across a Tweet from the player she’d just defeated, who wrote, “I really just died to Alinity. I’m pissed.”

Needless to say, the player’s saltiness prompted a good-natured laugh from the streamer, who asked her friend to tell her opponent one vital piece of information.

“You should tell him I’ve had like, six shots,” she chuckled.

“I don’t think he wants to hear that,” her friend admitted.

That wasn’t the end of her opponent’s humorous take on the situation, either: their replies to the matter reveal that they took the loss in stride, and were able to find the humor in losing to such a well-known streamer.

“Man listen. I’m still new to m&k and I had two short range guns,” they explained.

“Man I can’t even look at myself,” they jokingly continued. “Changing my load out forever now.”

This humorous moment follows yet another viral interaction from Alinity a week prior, whose pet cat appeared to get its “revenge” on the streamer with a vicious bite on camera (after she received mass backlash for tossing her cat ‘Milo’ over her head during an Apex stream in 2019).

Thankfully, this broadcast brought a hilarious moment to light — one that Alinity’s opponent isn’t likely to forget.

What does Branthium mean in Apex Legends? Horizon & Ash Season 7 teasers

Amid all the teasers for Apex Legends Season 7, one word has been on the lips of a number of characters: Branthium. But, what is this? Now, we finally have an answer to the mystery: but we’ve got a whole load more questions too.

The first time we heard the word Branthium in Apex Legends, it came from Ash, at the end of the Season 5 Broken Ghost quest.

Ash is the villain from Titanfall 2, who was recruited by Kuben Blisk, before she “died” at the hands of Jack Cooper, was put back together again, her memory wiped, and then her head split into parts and spread throughout Kings Canyon.

Once the Legends put her head back together, she spoke to them, and, as part of an unintelligible message, said: “all roads lead to Branthium.”

What is Branthium in Apex Legends?

After the mention from Ash, in the first Twitter teaser for Season 7, Horizon (expected to be the next playable Legend), repeated the word “Branthium” in among all the static.

It later became clear that Horizon was repeating what Ash said – or, perhaps Ash was repeating Horizon.

Is Branthium a place?

The saying, “all roads lead to Branthium”, is undoubtedly a play on the common phrase “all roads lead to Rome.” Typically, this saying refers to “all paths or activities lead to the center of things” – it comes from Ancient Rome in the literal sense, when all roads started from the capital city.

So, at first, most theories believed Branthium was a place, possibly related to the planet Psamathe and its city, Olympus. Ash finished her monologue by saying “Welcome to Olympus.”

But, a spanner was thrown in the works of this theory by Horizon. In the latest Twitter teaser, Horizon says: “Just got to figure out how he can fuse the Branthium (or Brantium?) without critical mass.”

So, is Branthium actually some kind of element, or fuel, or material? This remains unclear, but it wouldn’t make sense for Ash (and Horizon) to say “All roads lead to Branthium,” if it was simply some kind of element.

The truth about Branthium revealed

It didn’t take long for Respawn to reveal the truth behind Branthium, confirming that it was in fact an element that the people of Psamathe needed as an energy source, to solve their looming energy crisis.

Dr Mary Somers (aka Horizon) was tasked with finding Branthium to solve the energy crisis.

Unfortunately, after retrieving the Branthium, Somers was betrayed and left to die in the abyss of space, which is where the Season 7 story is about to pick up.

Horizon kept the original sample of Branthium for herself, before she set out to fulfill her promise to her son.

This could line up with the involvement of Hammon Robotics too. The Planet Harvester which launched in Season 4 is being used by Hammond “to gather precious metals from the core of the planet for reasons unknown.”

It’s still possible that Branthium is both a place and an element, with the latter named after the former.

Season 7 is set to start on November 4 – a week earlier than initially planned – so we should learn a lot more then.
