Apex Legends cosplays are becoming more and more popular as the seasons go by, though this new Crypto costume from German cosplayer _sarenji_’ is sure to turn heads more than most.

With 15 Legends now in Respawn Entertainment’s popular battle royale, the game has a properly fleshed out cast of characters. Everyone has their favorite picks in terms of both gameplay mechanics and backstory.

While Horizon might be in the spotlight as Season 7 progresses, this fresh cosplay takes us back to Season 3’s deceptive arrival. What Crypto may lack in other-worldly abilities or extraordinary strength, he more than makes up for in style.

Putting a comfortable spin on the figure, sarenji has taken Crypto’s distinct appearance and translated it to a fitting female design.

Crypto is one with technology and this cosplayer has encapsulated just that with some handy face paint. From cyberpunk-esque markings around her left eye to the more prominent metallic look that casts down from her chin to her torso.

The color scheme of his default skin is carried across the costume itself. With sarenji wearing a vibrant white and green overcoat that’s been customized just for this particular design.

Blue and black straps can be seen near her wrists, showcasing some of the many gadgets Crypto drops into battle with. Not just to interface with the environment around him, but to get a jump on opposing Legends.

Beyond the costume itself, an accompanying pistol adds some realism to this Striking Crypto design. The cosplayer poses with a Wingman in hand. One that’s all too authentic thanks to some accurate inscriptions along the side.

Bizarre Apex Legends deathbox bug makes players invincible

A completely bizarre Apex Legends bug with the death boxes managed to save one player certain elimination after being boxed in by an enemy team who threw everything at them.

Ever since Apex Legends released back in February of 2019, there has been a long list of incredibly unusual bugs and glitches on Kings Canyon, World’s Edge, and the newest map, Olympus.

Players have been able to use weapons after being downed, games have been interrupted because the map won’t load in, and we’ve even seen care packages spawn outside of the map – just to name a few. 

Death boxes have also played a role too, where players have seen their teammates spawn under staircases or be crushed by a falling box. However, a new bug has helped saved players from certain death.

Death boxes have been the source of a few strange Apex bugs.

It comes from Reddit user phantom56657, who showed off a clip of their Lifeline teammate reviving them in a tight spot during a game on World’s Edge.

However, Lifeline’s true masterstroke came after they had died. With both the Pathfinder and Lifeline being caught in a corner, the latter was taken down, and their death box landed squarely on the recently revived Redditor. 

As the kill hungry enemies swarmed on the now-lone Pathfinder, they threw everything at them – including multiple Ultimates and grenades. However, the death box prevented all incoming damage, and they were able to survive and get away pretty scot-free.

But, after leaving the safety of the death box, they were back to normal, and did take damage from a few enemy shots. 

It’s a bit of a one in a million type glitch, seeing as it’s very unlikely many players would be caught in such an unusual position with the death box. So, it’s not exactly game-breaking or something you can try to replicate yourself.

But if it happens to you, and you’re on the side trying to kill the downed player, you may as well be patient.
