Apex Legends leak reveals ability for unreleased legend Crypto

A new Apex Legends leak has revealed what one of Crypto’s abilities will be whenever he is eventually released in the battle royale game. 

Crypto has yet to be added to the playable character roster in Apex Legends, but that hasn’t stopped fans from learning more about the unannounced character each day.

As Season 2 rolls on, there has been a lot of chatter about Respawn adding in Crypto before it wraps up, but there has been no official word by them as of yet.

Despite no announcement, it’s looking clearer and clearer that he’s on the way and now we have a pretty good idea of what one of his abilities will be – or at least one of them. 

According to Apex Legends leaker That1MiningGuy, Crypto will have the ability to hack into objects much like Pathfinder does now when he locates the next zone.

Details on this feature are still scarce but it sounds like Crypto will be able to find hidden areas around the map or it could be a beacon that signals when enemies run by them.

With this new leak, it sounds like Crypto will be plugging into the laptops that are scattered across the map. It was thought the laptops would tie into the next season somehow, but now it looks like it’ll tie to the new legend too.

Either option would be interesting additions for the free-to-play game as there’s nothing like that in the game just yet. 

It’s not a whole lot to go on but Season 1 introduced just one Legend in Octane and Season 2 has already added in Wattson.

If Respawn keeps up that cadence, then we might have to wait for Season 3 to see the release of Crypto. If that’s the case, we still have quite some time before a release.

While all of this information seems pretty solid, none of it has been revealed officially so it’s important to not take it as a fact yet.

It’s still a leak and subject to change so keep that in mind before you end up getting too excited about the potential future of Apex Legends.

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
