The road to Apex Legends Season 3 has been full of teasers that’s slowly been pointing to a new location for the battle royale, and a familiar spire from Titanfall lore has all but confirmed it.

Respawn Entertainment are ramping up the reveals leading up to the game’s upcoming chapter, which is finally going to release Crypto to the Apex Games.

One of the biggest questions left unanswered for Season 3 revolves around a possible new setting in store for Apex Legends players. As Season 2 comes close to an end, all signs have been pointing to a change in battlegrounds for players to compete in.

In a second September 25 teaser, the official Apex Legends Twitter page posted a gif for a structure that’s embedded into the Titanfall universe lore.

The images reveal that a “Location (is) ready” and that the Ares broadcast is “on.” The biggest mystery lies in the “Key” for the spire called World’s Edge.

Earlier in the day, the devs released a teaser that alluded to Crypto gaining access to a secret terminal, but now it looks like he found what he was looking for.

The teaser highlights a Space Elevator previously seen in the background of Titanfall 2’s Eden multiplayer map, but it looks like it will now play a pivotal role of some kind in Season 3’s events.

With Crypto laying waste to Kings Canyon in Season 2’s events hoping to “hitch a ride on the dropship off Solace,” the massive elevator could be used to transport the location of the Apex Games to another world.

Similarly, some players believe that World’s Edge could be simply hinting at a new location on Kings Canyon.

It should be noted that the latest Twitter teaser shows the same images of when Crypto first appeared in the game.

While the content is identical, it could mean that Respawn is getting closer to finally revealing a new trailer that could include a connection to a planet once seen in previous Titanfall concepts.

Season 2 of Apex Legends ends on September 30 with Season 3 closely following as it launches on October 1.

Apex Legends players have got a clever new way to quickly access Crypto’s drone, but it might not be around all that much longer. 

Since Respawn released Apex Legends back in February of 2019, the roster of legends has grown and grown – giving players a tonne of different ways to play the battle royale as they go in search of wins.

With the addition of a new legend each season, players have the chance to rethink things, figure out new strategies, and ultimately learn a whole new set of abilities. 

This can lead to some pretty neat tricks being uncovered. In the case of Crypto, players have always tried to find quick ways to get into his drone. That’s included jumping on top of bins and charge towers, but now, there is a new way to instantly access the tactical ability. However, it might not be along for all the long.

Crypto has become one of Apex Legends’ most popular characters as the seasons have unfolded.

The new way to instantly use the drone was pointed out by Reddit user bricious, who showed that you need to have a holo-spray ready to go for whenever you want to use the drone. 

By tossing out the holo-spray while also quickly tapping the button you use to access the tactical ability, the animation that loads up the drone will be canceled right away and you’ll instantly be able to fly around with the drone. 

Similar to the Octane speed boost glitch seen earlier in Season 6, it’s all about the timing, but it doesn’t look ultra-difficult to perfect either.

Yet, as some other players pointed out, it might not be around for too long given the leg up it gives to Crypto mains by cutting out the initial loading animation.

Some other players, like Redditor SnaxelZ, pointed out that because it needs a holo spray, the tactic is also pretty “pay to win.” However, we’ll just have wait and see as to whether or not Respawn decides to patch it.
