Fans of Apex Legends have already begun conjuring up ideas for the newly-leaked legend Crypto ahead of the start of season two.

Apex Legends players are gearing up for the release of the second round of seasonal content on July 2, with the possibility of being able to play as two new legends.

One long-awaited Legend – Wattson – was seemingly set to be the only new character released in season two. However, dataminers uncovered the possibility of another – Crypto. While not too much is known about the mysterious character, some players have begun theorizing as to what their abilities might be, based on the hints that have been leaked so far.

EA LivestreamFans have been waiting for Wattson since Respawn released Apex Legends: Wild Frontier.

In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, user 10EXP took the previously revealed information and spun it into their own concept for the character. As with the other legends, Crypto would need three abilities – a passive, tactical, and an ultimate.

10EXP provided their idea behind that, giving the character a real close-quarters combat feel, using the sword that they have in the datamined images. For the passive, Crypto would deal extra melee damage, while the tactical would allow them to block incoming attacks with a few swings of said sword.

As for the ultimate, well, that’s already been pointed towards elsewhere. The character is seemingly set to have a Jamming ability that would allow them to disrupt other players abilities and know when other ultimates have been deployed.

Now, these ideas are purely theoretical and not confirmed as Crypto’s abilities, but it might not be a million miles away. The ability to JAM other ultimates did rear its head in the recent data mine and would seemingly play a role with the character – but maybe not as an ultimate.

With the launch of season two just around the corner, it won’t be long before Respawn reveals the official information about their content – as well as confirming if we’ll see two new legends or just the one.

Apex Legends hints at removing World’s Edge in Season 7

Apex Legends players are patiently waiting for Season 7 to begin and explore all the new content coming with it, but fans of World’s Edge will have to be patient to go back to Talos.

The map was added to Apex during Season 3 all the way back in October 2019 and was the second map in the game after King’s Canyon.

While it certainly mixed up the battle royale, it seems like World’s Edge will be on the way out when Season 7 gets going on November 4, 2020, based on what we’ve seen from Respawn.

In a tweet on Oct. 27, the official Apex Legends account hinted that “with World’s Edge on the verge of collapse, the Apex Games need to find a new home.”

It doesn’t take a genius to pick up on what Respawn is putting down here, as it seems the map will be removed from the game, at least for a while, with the start of Season 7.

This wouldn’t be without precedent either. Back in Season 3 when World’s Edge was first introduced King’s Canyon, the game’s original map from the release was removed until it returned in April of 2020.

With Ranked being broken into two splits for the new Season, Respawn plans to introduce players to Olympus, the new home of the Apex Games, before sending players back to WE later in the Ascension update.

In fact, Kings Canyon is already going to be completely nixed from Apex Legends’ ranked playlist in Season 7.

It seems likely that the Legends will board the giant rocket that appeared recently on World’s Edge and set off somewhere new to battle it out for the top spot.

As for what will happen to the train and everything else, there was a black hole showcased in Horizon’s Stories from the Outlands video, that certainly seems like it would be able to swallow the entire map, and even the planet it’s located on.
