Apex Legends streamer goes nuts after killing Dizzy and King Richard

Everyone always thinks of the big names when it comes to Twitch but not many think of the smaller streamers. Take a look at this streamer’s reaction to eliminating Dizzy and King Richard’s squad in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends has been at or near the top of Twitch since its release in February. This has been buoyed by the  many big streamers coming over to the game since its launch such as shroud, Ninja, summit1G and Dr Disrespect but Apex Legends has also made its own stars.

Apex Legends has also made its own stars, with Dizzy being the most prominent. As part of Ninja and King Richard’s team, he won the inaugural Apex Legends tournament and hasn’t looked back since.

EA/RespawnThis streamer went wild after eliminating Dizzy.

While Dizzy was a relative unknown coming into Apex Legends he has since made quite the name for himself. He consistently racks up wins and double-digit kill games, making him a delight to watch.

Alternatively, this means he also has a price on his head for other players. Small streamers can use all the publicity they can get which is why getting an elimination on Dizzy can be excellent for growth.

Streamer ComedyRussell, a Twitch partner, recently killed Dizzy’s squad in Apex Legends and has pretty much the best reaction you could hope for, despite being killed himself immediately after.

In the clip, we can see an engagement play out and when ComedyRussell begins to get the upper hand, he shares a lot of excitement. Be warned the clip above is incredibly not safe for work.

On the other side of things, we have Dizzy who just treated it like a regular death.

It’s always interesting to see how streamers engage with each other in games and this is a good example of what one does when they eliminate one of the more famous players on Twitch.

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? A location, material, or something else entirely? Here, we’ll put together all the clues to get to the bottom of this mystery.

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.

This theory could line up though with the involvement of Hammon Robotics. 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.” Is this metal Branthium/Brantium?

Perhaps, Branthium is both a place and an element, with the latter named after the former. Brantium could be a metal discovered on the planet Branthium? For now, we simply don’t know, but we’ll keep this post updated as more teasers emerge about this mysterious word, and what it could mean.

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