An Apex Legends developer has given fans a few more hints about Season 4, hinting that there could be another trailer in the works.

With Apex Legends approaching its first year anniversary, the popular battle royale title is gearing up for its fourth installment of seasonal content. Season four, which is going by the name Assimilation, is set to shake up Respawn Entertainment’s game yet again.

It has already been confirmed that players will finally be able to use Revenant as a brand-new legend, and that they’ll also be whisked back to King’s Canyon – the battle royale’s original map – in the second split. Yet, it appears as if there are plenty of more details that are being kept under wraps that the game’s developers are pretty psyched to finally reveal.

Revenant is the new legend for Apex Legends season four.

The biggest piece of new information appears to be that players will get another trailer on top of the action-packed videos that have already leaked and been subsequently released by Respawn.

Responding to a jokey post about another ‘leaked’ trailer on the game’s subreddit, Apex developer lowkeydbjosh said: “I was like noooooooooooooo not again lol. See y’all soon for the real one though. Fingers crossed, no spoilers.”

Presumably, this will be a gameplay trailer, as so far we’ve only had cinematics. Typically, gameplay trailers are the last videos posted before the season starts.

Season 4 bringing “things the community will be hyped about”

Of course, seemingly confirming another trailer sent some Apex Legends fans into incredible levels of excitement, with the developer being asked to rate the excitement levels that fans can expect. 

“I’m pretty hyped for the entirety of season 4,” the developer posted. “I think we are doing things the community will be hyped about during this season so I’m hyped for you guys to digg in sooon.”

With the developer being pretty teasing about things and not revealing any additional details, it’s hard to say what they’re so excited about – but fans will be hoping that lingering annoyances with things like bugs and skill-based matchmaking are addressed.

They don’t have long to wait, however, with Apex Legends Season 4 being released on Tuesday, February 4.

Apex Legends trick with Crypto’s drone makes it harder to destroy

A clever movement trick has been found with Crypto’s Drone in Apex Legends, making it much harder for opponents to shoot and destroy the flying surveillance device. Here’s how you can try it for yourself.

Every character in Apex Legends has a unique set of abilities that can give them an advantage in gunfights they take in the battle royale, and Crypto’s skills are focused around his surveillance drone.

While Crypto is one of the least played characters out of the Apex Games cast, his drone can be useful to scout out any enemies and mark them for allies in-game.

A movement trick has been found for Crypto’s drone.

Although his Drone EMP ultimate ability is quite effective, it can be tricky to pull off, as the drone can be shot out of the air before it gets close enough. However, Apex players have now found a trick with Crypto that could make his abilities much more useful than before.

As Crypto’s drone makes up a lot of his kit, seeing an enemy destroy it before getting the chance to use it can be incredibly frustrating, but this tactic makes it harder to target.

Apex player u/LiTozaVr shared the tip that could improve your flying skills and make it difficult to lock onto the drone, by decreasing the number of sharp turns you make, which slows the drone down, and allowing you to “ground surf.” Here’s how to try it:

How to make Crypto’s drone harder to destroy

  1. Deploy your drone when playing as Crypto.
  2. Use the vertical descent button (CTRL, B, or Circle) until the drone reaches the ground.
  3. Keep the vertical descent button pressed when moving along the ground.
  4. While flying the drone, you can gain a bit of acceleration by changing the vertical position of the camera.
  5. To achieve the maximum speed of this acceleration, you need to hold the camera at about a 25-30 degree angle.
  6. By doing this, you should be able to build your speed up with each turn and the momentum will cancel out any sharp turns the drone will take.

So, there you have it. Once you follow these steps you should be able to learn the clever technique and improve your Crypto skills for future matches.

As this trick can be quite difficult to master, it might be worth practicing it in the Firing Range before trying it in a real match.
