Apex Legends fans want simple buff to Crypto’s drone in Season 3

One Apex Legends fan has come up with a perfect way to use Crypto’s drone in order to warn teammates who don’t have a mic about potential enemies in the area.

Apex Legends season three is in full-swing following its release on October 1, with the newly-released Crypto being an integral part of the game’s meta. The hacking legend has some pretty unique ways to combat foes, especially with his surveillance drone.

One of the clever uses for the drone is being able to scout out the number of enemies in your immediate area by scanning the banners that display the current kill leaders and champion squad. While the legend can be pretty hard to use if you’re playing with teammates who don’t communicate, one fan has come up with a solution to this problem.

Respawn EntertainmentCrypto is a familiar face during games of Apex Legends on World’s Edge.

In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, user DurrrBurgerYOYO noted that Crypto should have a prompt of some kind that allows him to warn teammates about possible enemies when scanning these banners. 

Just like pinging, players would be able to press a button of their choice and they’d be told if there are any, or even if there aren’t, enemies in their zone – allowing them to get prepared for a fight, or just continue on looting.

It’s been an idea that has garnered support from players who want to play as Crypto but don’t when they’re matched up with random teammates. “You should be able to ping banners and it would tell “X squads near us, be careful,” posted SecretChilley.

Another Redditor, Unlucky_Sasza, noted: “Definitely. More info pingable is always good. And with a proper voice line, I could avoid explaining to my teammates how I know that (there are enemies nearby).”

Now, of course, not everybody plays Apex Legends with a random trio, so it wouldn’t be a big thing for everybody, but these quality of life changes do help to keep the game ticking over. 

It may be something for the Respawn Entertainment team to consider moving forward, especially ahead of season four, where they could add more than the typical single legend to the battle royale.

Classic Apex Legends care package bug is plaguing games on Olympus

A classic Apex Legends care package bug has resurfaced in the ongoing Season 7, meaning it has now plagued every single one of the game’s maps – first Kings Canyon, then World’s Edge and now Olympus. 

A game as big and variable as Apex Legends was bound to be plagued by bugs from time to time, but players have grown increasingly frustrated with Respawn as more and more bugs not only affect gameplay, but return in multiple different seasons.

That is the case with this particular care package issue, which has previously surfaced on both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge. Unfortunately, it has now made a return in Season 7 and Olympus, despite efforts from Respawn to patch it in the past.

Lifeline might be a support legend, but her care packages can get teams out of tricky spots.

The glitch revolves around a care package spawning in a location slightly off the map’s customary boundaries. For example, it might be slightly below, on a couple of the large pipes that help to prop up the Olympus environment.

Pursuing the care package, which often contains top-tier loot, results in an instant death, as one Redditor unluckily found out.

Joking that they got ‘bamboozled’ by a care package, they hopped down below to take advantage of the loot on offer, only to be killed rapidly when hitting the area of the map the care package had nestled itself in.


It doesn’t appear to be an isolated incident either, unfortunately. Another Reddit user shared a YouTube clip entitled ‘It’s a Trap!’

The video shows off an almost identical death, as the allure of top-tier weaponry is enough to provide the player with an instant and immensely frustrating death.

Respawn have not yet responded to the issue, but we expect to see small adjustments made to stop the issues from occurring. For the time being, though, avoid going for care packages that look like they’re in dangerous locations.
