A fresh Apex Legends leak has seemingly revealed new abilities for both Bloodhound and Crypto, allowing them to truly live up to the recon legend tag.

One of the biggest things that sets Apex Legends apart from its other battle royale rivals is the use of the different characters and their abilities. Though these legends might be classed as offensive, defensive, recon, or support, but they have different skills that set them apart from each other. 

Playing as a recon character might mean that your team isn’t going all out to rack up kills, but instead, playing slowly and carefully. This can be seen with Crypto’s drone flying in from miles away. Though, he and Bloodhound might soon have new abilities to use.

Crypto is the most recent Recon legend to be added to Apex.

Reliable Apex Legends dataminer Biast12 revealed that there are in-game voice lines that show both Bloodhound and Crypto talking about using the Survey Beacons.

The beacons in question, which allow players to get the location of the next safe zone, have only been accessible to Pathfinder in the past via his Insider Knowledge passive ability. 

Players who use the other two recon legends have been hoping, for quite some time, that’d they’d also get the ability – and now it appears as if it will be happening at some point. 

However, despite having the voice lines, there doesn’t appear to be anything about whether or not the legends would see their current abilities changed to accommodate it. Crypto’s passive is his Neurolink, while Bloodhound has its Tracker.

Another data miner, Suum, previously leaked animations of Crypto and Bloodhound using the ability to hack the beacons.

Something with each character’s abilities would likely have to change, but that would be on Respawn to figure out for an update that comes later down the line. 

Neither Bloodhound nor Crypto has a passive perk, something that other legends do, so it could fit in there – but we’ll just have to wait and see what the developers do.

Crypto might not be one of the meta legends in Apex Legends for Season 7, but there’s two handy tricks that will certainly help those who decide to main him get the best out of the Surveillance Expert.

Any player can learn how to play one of fifteen Legends available to choose in Apex. However, to truly master a Legend you need to know the character inside-out.

There’s no better way of developing your knowledge of a Legend than taking advice from players who have committed hundreds of hours to learn their strengths and weaknesses.

For Crypto mains, a video posted to Reddit has revealed a few details that will definitely help take the character to the next level.

Two tricks every Crypto main should know

In a video posted to the Apex University subreddit, user EhWhateverOk uncovers two essential tips for mastering the Legend. Although the tricks seem simple, it’s surprising how few Crypto players use them to their advantage.

Earlier in the season, members of the community were using his drone to make a flying Rampart minigun, before it was patched. Now, players can hold down the tactical button to place down the drone without entering drone view – which puts you at a real advantage.

This allows you to place down your drone in heated gunfights without putting yourself at risk to enemies.

Here’s my two biggest tips on how to be a good Crypto. Lots of people say they’ve never seen a good Crypto but I think that’s because nobody knows how to use him! from apexlegends

A common mistake made by Crypto players is getting separated from their team due to using his drone view at the wrong time. This tip allows players to place down Crypto’s drone without the risk of isolating themselves from their team, or leaving him vulnerable.

Therefore, you can also be close to the enemy team when using the ultimate. Simply fly the drone high enough so the spherical hit radius only hits the enemy team and not you.

This is a tip that is so obvious, but not all will know it’s possible to use their ultimate when in close quarters with enemies. Often, Crypto mains will use their ultimate and hit themselves with the radius. As seen in the video, to reduce the hitbox, players will need to fly the drone high enough so only the bottom of the spherical hit radius is used.

Although EhWhateverOk’s video only contains two tips, they’re both incredibly useful to know.
