Jump to: navigation, search
It is a gift to be an Apex Legend, but the true test is in the eyes of the Allfather. Each day brings me closer to honoring my felagi fighters who have put their lives ahead of my own. For them, I am prepared to face every challenge no matter what form the beast of the night chooses to take. As the prey stalks, the hunter hunts. Trust in nature, trust in yourself - that is the path to victory.

Biography

Bloodhound is known across the Outlands as one of the greatest game hunters the Frontier has ever seen – and that's about all anyone knows. Their[1][2][3] identity is a mystery wrapped in layers of rumors: they are fabulously wealthy, a bloodthirsty murderer, a Goliath whisperer, a former slave, half bat, and a dozen other things depending on who's doing the whispering.

All anyone truly knows is that Bloodhound is a force to be reckoned with in the Apex Games, having won four championships in a row. Bloodhound's unparalleled tracking skills are a boon to any team they join, helping them root out hidden opponents and tracking the enemy's movements. Calling on Earth's Old Norse Gods to guide them, Bloodhound believes that destiny is a path that has already been laid out, eventually carrying all to their death. But with that knowledge comes strength, because until that day comes, Bloodhound knows they can't be stopped.

Type Tactical

Description Briefly reveal hidden enemies, traps, and clues throughout structures ahead of you.

  • In a 110° cone in front of you, all enemies, traps, and Loot Ticks are highlighted and tracked to be seen by you and your allies.
  • The tracking lasts for 1.5 seconds on players. Traps and Loot Ticks will remain highlighted for as long as they exist.

  • Squad mates can also see any scanned enemies or trap.
  • Upon activation, the visual effect generated by the sonar is seen by everyone, including your teammates and enemies. While you can see the enemy and their traps, they'll know you're nearby as well.
  • Eye of the Allfather is not a 360 proximity around Bloodhound. It must be aimed where you want to reveal enemies. It is roughly a 110-degree cone in front of you.

Beast of the Hunt

Beast of the Hunt.png Beast of the Hunt
Type Ultimate
Charge time 180 seconds
Description Enhances your senses, allowing you to move faster and highlighting your prey.

  • Increases your speed by 25%.
  • Your vision turns black and white, with the exception of enemies, which are highlighted in red.
    • Enemy footprints are also highlighted in red.
    • Certain things will retain a little color, including the edge of The Ring, grenade explosions, and various enemy abilities.
  • Lasts 35 seconds.

  • While active, you can see enemies through Bangalore's or Caustic smokes.
  • Since footsteps are tracked, Beast of the Hunt is a great way of finishing off a weakened enemy or finding a hiding foe.
  • Since enemies are highlighted in all red, it's much easier to see them from long to extreme range. This makes Beast of the Hunt a great scouting and sniping skill.
  • Seeing in black and white only can be troublesome concerning stuff on the ground or enemies' shields, which you cannot see the color (and so, the level).

  • Bloodhound has canonically become champion for at least four seasons. In one of these wins, they asked for a bookend as a reward.
