Another St Patricks Day-themed Apex Legends skin has been revealed by a leaker as, this time, Crypto joins the brigade of green cosmetics.

Like plenty of other popular titles, Apex Legends has been tying into real-world events and holidays with their own in-game events and cosmetics for the celebrations.

With St Patricks Day on the horizon, coming on March 16 to be exact, it seems as if Respawn Entertainment will be joining the party and tapping into the all green colored celebrations. A ‘Leprechaun’ skin for Mirage was revealed on 5, with that supposedly being the next Twitch Prime cosmetic, but Crypto also appears to be getting some shine.

Crypto joined the Apex Legends roster back in Season 3.

The skin was revealed by Apex Legends leaker iLootGames, who also showed off the new Mirage look, after he got his hands on some other recolors for different legends.

Focusing on Crypto, though, the St Patrick’s Day themed skin is a rework of his legendary ‘The Hired Gun’ skin which pretty much resembles movie character John Wick’s black suit. 

As you can probably guess, with the leaked skin, the Surveillance Expert legend ditched the all-black suit in favor of an all-green look – though his apparent new cosmetic lacks the repeated use of Shamrocks like the earlier leaked Mirage Twitch Prime skin.

In his video, iLootGames also showcased a recolor for Wraith and Lifeline that should be available in the future – though they didn’t exactly tie into the St Patrick’s Day theme like Crypto and Mirage.

With the skins still yet to be released by Respawn, the developers could still re-tweak the new cosmetics, though that seems unlikely as they’re already in the game files.Whether or not there will be any bigger celebrations for St Patrick’s Day – including possible event and other content – remains to be seen as well. Though, there is a Town Takeover for Bloodhound coming in the future.

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.

Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.

Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.

Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.
