      Let's all be honest, this is one of the best EA Games ever

    2. QzKunG

      So blood is a girl??

      1. Jenna S

        No, Bloodhound is still non-binary (meaning they don't identify as either male or female). It's why Artur only calls them "child" or "young one", and all official lore uses "they" instead of "he" or "she".

    3. weston gamerboi

      Respawn, is bloodhound a boy or girl, we need answers

      1. Jenna S

        Respawn has officially stated that Bloodhound is non-binary (neither male nor female). There's a cool interview with the writers where Mohammed Alavi discusses the NB people in his life who inspired the character, and the voice actress Allegra Clark has been quite vocal about it. It's why Bloodhound is always addressed as "they" in official descriptions, instead of "he" or "she".

      1. Jenna S

        @Adam Nagar It's *they (not he or she) since Bloodhound is officially non-binary.

      2. Adam Nagar

        Or he, there's no consensus.

      Bloodhounds is girl

      1. Jenna S

        Nope, Bloodhound is actually non-binary (meaning they don't identify as either male or female).

    18. Ias Howle

      Bloodhound: *wears mask* Also Bloodhound: *dies cause caustic’s smoke looks just like plain smoke*

      1. Jenna S

        The reason Caustic's gas does damage to people wearing masks (and inorganic robots) is because it's corrosive unless you have a specific chemical compound to counteract it. A compound which only Caustic has.

    19. spiderkill 24

      Man I really like your vids and game. You should make a movie.

    20. Zacharia Jacobson

      Charge rifle in animation: One shots huge monster. Charge rifle in game 90% of the time: 20dmg.

    21. русский dansker

      Couldn't you have got actual Nordic voice actors to do the job? Hearing americans do "Nordic accents" really pisses me of. They all either Sound german or Turkish.

      1. Jenna S

        Allegra Clark mentioned how she ran into a very Scandinavian-looking woman at the casting call, and was surprised when she ended up getting the part. She then underwent training with an accent coach. Choosing the right voice actor for a role is about more than just being able to perform an accent well (though that is certainly part of it); it's about finding someone with the right tone, intensity, pacing, endurance, and availability. Clark isn't the only one whose character has a different accent than their normal speech. JB Blanc is British-French. Justine Huxley, Mela Lee, and Fryda Wolff are American. Yet they portray characters with American, French, Jamaican, and Portuguese accents (respectively). It's what voice actors do. To you, one of them might sound off because you're accustomed to hearing it every day. But that's a possible downside for any of them, and it's a risk they have to take.

      these are SICK

    24. Romilu Apla-on

      Hahaha i knew it something off with bloodhounds voice i thought she was a woman and i was right

      1. Jenna S

        They aren't, actually. Bloodhound has always been non-binary (neither male nor female).

    25. Ryan Drury

      I hope we get an explanation for the octane heirloom

    26. GRAYSTORM 901

      Everytime I hear “for Artur” I get chills

    27. MR JUICY

      Bloodhound sound like a dude that hasn't hit puberty

      1. Jenna S

        I think they're supposed to be pre-pubescent at this point, so that's fitting.

    28. Guismo7276

      Wait a minute, if she has a gas mask why wouldn’t she be able to breath in caustic’s gas??

      1. Jenna S

        *they, not she. And there are other legends who hypothetically shouldn't be affected by caustic's gas; Octane (mask), Pathfinder or Revenant (robot). But the real reason caustic gas does damage is that it's corrosive to all materials, unless you have a special compound to counteract it (which only caustic has).

    29. Charles Barles

      Bloodhound is a girl it has been leaked by this Storie of the outlands

      1. Jenna S

        Nope, Bloodhound is still non-binary at this point in their life (confirmed by the VA and the writers).

    30. 0livia P

      JUST GRAB HIS CARD AND RESPawn him

    31. Ivanna Berdugo

      The guy at the beginning should have picked octane so he can run faster from the ice storm

      Charge rifle is good wepon

    34. aCkt _GR

      The reason blood hoondr has no gender is because they are no human. *THEY ARE THE HUNTER THE GODS HAVE SENT*

      1. aCkt _GR

        @i mean there are the dark towns you can access Thanks for your correction my friend.

      2. i mean there are the dark towns you can access

        you just called them a he

    35. Luciana Kagamine

      I'm about to say like "BLOODHOUND IS A GIRL!?" but then, the way Artur said to her that she's a bloodhound now, I think "bloodhound" is like "the chosen one" name in a tribe I guess, so it's basically genderless, I need to know what gender our apex's bloodhound is nowwwww 😂😂😂😂

      1. Jenna S

        Bloodhound's gender is supposed to appear ambiguous because they're non-binary, meaning they don't identify as strictly "male" or "female". It's why all official lore says "they" instead of "he" or "she", and Artur only says "child" or "young one".

    36. Apollo501

      Are they a boy or a girl

      1. Jenna S

        Neither; Bloodhound is non-binary, meaning they don't see themselves as male or female. It's why Artur only calls them "child" or "young one", and all official lore uses "they" instead of "he" or "she".

    37. Malik Accime

      what happened to bloodhounds face

      1. Jenna S

        Chemical burns from the coolant.

    38. Nate Boyyy

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="294">4:54</a> at the end of his line you can hear his voice turning into a girl cause he’s voiced by a girl

      1. Nate Boyyy

        Jenna S true

      2. Jenna S

        Yeah, but since Bloodhound is a kid here, their voice is going to be a lot higher. The end result is ambiguous because Bloodhound is non-binary (neither male nor female).

    39. Mecha Eye Ballz

      Did she turn into a man when she grew up or she got some kinda voice changer

      1. Jenna S

        Neither; Bloodhound is non-binary, so neither male nor female. That's why their Uncle only refers to them as "child" or "young one", and all the official lore addresses Bloodhound as "they" instead of "he" or "she".

    40. Liam Vernon

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="367">6:07</a> what pisses me off is those people are running with there kids when arter and blood hound are fighting and the guards or some shit. They might be women but they could've done there faor share insted of looking and running

    41. Dr. Pato

      Finally a battle royale that has a great story! And not about a rocket launching with non developed characters

    42. Marselino Baan

      Plot twist: Arthur was an assassins

    43. Sparda Kurkov

      I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Bloodhound is most likely female. At the start, I believe the girl calling for her father is Bloodhound as a child. The rest of this is in either her teenage or tween years, but most of the time, men and women in their teen years can still sound different as while both voices sound deeper than when they were children, men tend to still have a deeper tone than women in their teen years. This may not sound very reasonable, but I believe that Bloodhound may be female because her tone of voice sounds quite girlish.

      1. Jenna S

        The reason Bloodhound's voice sounds ambiguous is because Bloodhound is non-binary (neither male nor female). It's why the voice actress (Allegra Clark) is pitched down for adult Bloodhound, why Artur only refers to them as "child" or "young one", and why all official lore says "they" instead of "he" or "she". There's an interview with the lead writers where they discuss the inspiration for Bloodhound's character, and Mohammed Alavi talks about the non-binary people in his life who were an important part of that.

      2. naitoflik92

        Indeed. If you use young blood skin and get hit by caustic gas trap. Sometimes you can clearly hear a female cough.

      Bloodhound thought he would be safe from being caught these people have sences of dogs Sorry I meant she

      1. Athif Human

        Jenna S oh I get it now

      2. Jenna S

        @Athif Human It's neither, actually. Bloodhound is non-binary, so you'd use "they" instead of "he" or "she" (like the video description above).

      3. Athif Human

        Sorry I meant she

    49. PYRO

      So bloodhound is norse?

      1. Jenna S

        Sort of. Their culture and religion are clearly nordic, and they're speaking Icelandic, but this is the second generation of spacefaring colonists. So there'll be some very clear differences between ancient norse mythology, and their modern interpretations.

    50. Toby Glorinz

      Did he say weaker or vegan? Both are equally bad

      1. Jenna S

        "made them veikr." (translation: weaker).

    56. Inferno Dripp

      Bloodhounds a girl?

      1. Obama

        @Jenna S alright, thank you very much.

      2. Jenna S

        @Obama Yep, Bloodhound would've been born male, female, or intersex, but we don't actually know which it was. We also don't know when or why they became non-binary. Respawn might delve into this a bit more in future Tales from the Outlands, but they might not; it doesn't appear to have too much bearing on their character as a whole. The focus has been on their achievements, skills, experiences, and unique Icelandic culture. Bloodhound probably cares about their gender just as much as they care about their real name: not at all.

      3. Obama

        @Jenna S ok so a quick question. Is she a female or male genetically. I know they identify as non binary, but is there gender boy or girl.

      4. Jenna S

        Nope, Bloodhound is actually non-binary. Meaning they don't identify as strictly male or female.

    57. mark s

      No one Bloodhound: haha glowy thing go BOOM

    58. KyanAwesome

      Anybody else think bloodhound was a dude?

      1. Jenna S

        Lots of people did. The game itself isn't too vocal about Bloodhound being non-binary, so quite a few people still think they're male or female.

    59. Ностальгия

      Wait is he or she a girl

      1. Jenna S

        Neither; Bloodhound is non-binary, meaning they don't identify as strictly male or female.

    60. Ikigani

      Just completely bad ass

    61. CryoThyst

      yeah we need this as an anime

    63. kakaroto Sayayin

      so now blodhount is girl 100% confirmed right?

      1. Jenna S

        Nope. Bloodhound is still non-binary, and that has been confirmed as not changing.

    64. chaosgaming 3863

      Bloodhound?

      1. chaosgaming 3863

        @Jenna S ok thanks

      2. Jenna S

        Yup!

    65. kdog exe

      Its still hard to tell blood hounds gender

      1. Jenna S

        That's intentional, since Bloodhound is non-binary.

    66. Dex

    73. vaporishbrush41 o

      Yes

    74. HudsonDZCraftin

      I know people say that Bloodhound is female but to me he's a male character. And plus, this story was from when Bloodhound was a young boy.

      1. Jenna S

        Bloodhound is neither male nor female; they've been non-binary since launch, and they still are. Notice how Artur only refers to them as "young one" or "child", and the video description says "they" instead of "he" or "she".

      2. benji exe

        We dont know if they are intersex so just call them they

      3. benji exe

        Wow okay so you dont know they're non binary

    75. J&J Tapia

      dose any one feel weird that blood hound is a female

      1. Jenna S

        They aren't. Bloodhound is still non-binary, meaning they don't identify as either male or female.

    76. Crazy Pistachios

      Two months later and i still watch this sometimes

    77. qwebbie

      I thought Pathfinder killed Artur, meh guess I was wrong

      1. Jenna S

        Artur the crow just doesn't like Pathfinder because he doesn't like technology in general.
