Apex Legends Season 3 introduced Crypto into the mix and his new drone ability has opened the door for players to troll other players.

As with each new season of Apex Legends, a new character was introduced and this time it’s the famous hacker known as Crypto.

One of his abilities creates a drone that has the ability to provide scouting for your team, as well as grabbing banners, checking boxes, and even opening doors.

Respawn EntertainmentCrypto has arrived in Apex Legends.

The opening doors aspect gives players a chance to troll by sitting outside of doors and opening them over and over, with the enemy having no idea what’s really going on.

Reddit user TheRealFrothers uploaded a video of him controlling the drone and hovering above a doorway, just opening and closing it. Eventually, another player comes out to investigate what was going on but wasn’t able to spot the drone.

There are a lot of different things you can do to make this actual strategy. One of those ways would be to open the front door of a building to draw attention that way, while the other two players on your team go in through the back.

Of course, it’s a whole lot more fun to just troll like this, but you definitely won’t be winning many games on this strategy alone.

Respawn EntertainmentAfter many teases, Crypto has arrived.

Crypto has been pretty popular since his release, of course, a lot of that is due to him being the new blood on the market.

That said, players are still figuring out the best ways to play him and we’ve done our best to help by compiling a list of tips and tricks that will help you earn those wins.

Apex Legends Season 3 is out now so make sure you dive in with Crypto and give him a try for yourself.

Best Legends to use in Winter Express LTM in Apex Legends

Apex Legends’ Winter Express LTM is chugging along as a part of the Holo-Day Bash event, but if you’ve never dropped in and want some tips on which legends to use, we’ve got you covered. 

With the Holo-Day Bash event returning for the 2020 holiday season, Respawn Entertainment have also brought back the Winter Express limited-time mode. Though, some fans criticized them for “recycling modes, this year’s iteration does include some interesting changes.

The mode is completely different from the typical battle royale gameplay you’re used to in Apex. Your team has to take control of the train that used to chug its way around World’s Edge – all while dealing with preset loadouts and enemies who are contesting for control. Plus, there are a few issues with friendly fire now, too. 

As it’s so different, your usual main Legend might not be as useful here, so here are a few tips and the best characters to use, to help you pick up more wins.

Winter Express is back, and its as enjoyable as ever.

In terms of the best Legends to use, you may have to switch things up from who you would usually use in the battle royale mode. For example, Lifeline is great in duos/trios, but she’s not really needed in Winter Express as her healing abilities are rather useless here.

Caustic is probably the best legend to use, given that his gas is an absolute killer in the tight spaces. Similarly, Rampart’s amped walls are useful too, especially if you’re camping the train. 

Wraith, as always, is a stellar choice because her portal can get you out of a sticky situation – of which there are plenty in Winter Express. Additionally, Crypto and Wattson are good choices. Crypto because the drone can be used to auto-scan enemies, while Wattson’s interception pylon nullifies everyone’s stack of grenades.

Don’t head right for the train

While the name of the game is capturing the train, that doesn’t have to mean you need to land there. You can easily land just off to the side for a cleaner start to looting, and then work your way over. 

Plus, if you do so, you can annoy enemies who try to capture it right away by disrupting their progress on the capture. 

Additionally, if you are going for the train, it’s best to attack from the front. Players will be expecting attacks from the side and the back, but the front is often forgotten about. So, use it to your advantage. 

Of course, you might have your own tactics for dominating the LTM, but there are some general tips everyone can follow, which you can find right here

The Winter Express and Holo-Day Bash event are set to run for another month, until January 4, so you’ve got plenty of time to hone your skills and pick up wins.
