Players have spotted Apex Legends' long-awaited character Crypto in one of the labs, located far east of the map. Once spotted, Crypto quickly leaves the room with his little drone.
Apex Legends Season 02 is coming to an end pretty soon and Season 03 will immediately kick-off, bringing a ton of new content including a new Legend, battle pass, weapons and other exclusive items. As we get closer to the new season, many leaks and rumours have started to surface about the new legend, which will apparently be Crypto.
Crypto was leaked several weeks ago but now, it looks like his official reveal is imminent. On Apex Legends subreddit, players have started to report encounters with Crypto in game. In one of the labs, which is located far east of the map, Crypto can be seen behind protective glass working on something. Shortly after he notices that he's been watched, Crypto quickly wraps up his work and escapes through a nearby exit with his little drone following him.
Of course, we'll still have to wait for the official confirmation from Respawn Entertainment but this tease really says it all and it's just a matter of time before Respawn drop first details on the new Legend.
As for Crypto's abilities, we know that his drone will play a huge part. The drone can act as an aerial camera that lasts for 40 seconds and sends Crypto updates to his screen regarding his distance to the drone, distance to whatever target the drone's looking at and he can also hack doors, loot bins or pick up his teammates' banners from their death boxes.
Crypto's ultimate ability is an EMP blast from the drone which deals shield damage, slow enemies, and disables all traps. Again, these are just rumours based on the data mined files so take them with a grain of salt. That being said, if the leaks are true, Crypto could be one of the most exciting and unique additions to Apex Legends.
