Apex Legends players have found clues that may have revealed the identity of the next new Legend to be released in the game. 

The highly anticipated second season of Apex Legends will be releasing soon, and is set to include a lot of new content for the popular battle royale.


One of the major pieces of new content will be the next Legend, Wattson, who will have some pretty exciting new abilities at her disposal.

However, Wattson may not be the only new Legend that makes its debut in Season 2, as recent clues that have popped up point to a possible second playable hero added as well.


The new Legend is believed to be named Crypto, a character about whom nothing is really known about at this point except for his appearance.

Respawn EntertainmentCrypto could be another brand new Legend added in Apex Legends Season 2.

Recently, Reddit user FrozenFroh posted an in-depth breakdown of what he suspects will be an in-game event that will launch the start of Season 2.


In his post, the data-miner includes a screenshot taken from the game files showing a file called ‘crypto_laptop_tease,’ which he believes will play a role in said in-game event.

He then goes on to substantiate his theory with screenshots taken from official trailers and other pieces of game art that he believes are strong suggestions and clues that some sort of major change is coming to the map, and that Crypto will play a role in it.

According to FrozenFroh:

  • Crypto is the Korean guy from Pathfinder’s background art
  • His sword is in the S2 Logo
  • His data-mined abilities involve JAMMING: from stopping Pathfinder’s maphacks to stopping Bloodhound’s Sonar ability.

FrozenFroh believes that this character will JAM the Repulsor, which will cause a flood, and much more, in Season 2.

FrozenFroh followed his post up with another one on June 21, yet again presenting what he believes are clues that Crypto will indeed have some role to play at the start and possibly even during Season 2.

Another Apex Legend expert, YouTuber Staycation, presenting his take on the data-mined leaked in a recent video, theorizing that Crypto will use his abilities to hack the Repulsor Tower and open it, releasing creatures into the map, including the mysterious new Flyers.

Crypto’s name first surfaced when an image was leaked back in March containing a slew of new Legends that had not been released at that point.

One of the characters shown in that image was Wattson, who has, of course, since been confirmed to be on her way to King’s Canyon.

The leaked list of upcoming Legends includes the confirmed Wattson and Crypto.

Crypto can also be seen on a poster that’s hanging in the background of poster art for the Pathfinder. Although the robotic character is very much the central focus of the image, the mysterious new Legend’s presence can clearly be seen on the top left corner of the art.

It’s worth noting that this artwork has been used by Respawn Entertainment in official capacity, which would likely not have happened if Crypto was nothing more than just a rumor.

While all of this information points to Respawn possibly surprising their fan-base with the introduction of not one but two brand new Legends in Season 2, it must all be taken with a grain of salt, since nothing has been officially confirmed or announced.

Even if Crypto is not released as a playable character during the second season, considering that there is a lot more info out there about him than any other unreleased Legend, it could be that Respawn have him lined up for Season 3.

All Apex Legends Season 6 weapon TTKs revealed: body vs head

An Apex Legends fan has taken the time to break down every single weapon’s time-to-kill (TTK) for Season 6, all the way from the lowly Mozambique to the deadly R-99.

For those who are still not sure which guns to prioritize in Apex Legends’ sixth season, help is on the way. While everyone’s comfort with recoil control and the game’s attachment loot RNG makes gun preference entirely subjective, it is worth knowing how each gun performs at a base level.


As such, a YouTuber by the name of ‘Davengeful’ has blessed King’s Canyon’s best with the nitty-gritty details of how each of the battle royale’s weapons performs in a standardized lab environment. 

Standing within 10 meters of a red training dummy (or, technically, ‘DUMMIE,’ which stands for Digital Utility Mock Man Intelligent Example), Davengeful tested all of the game’s Season 6 assault rifles, light machine guns, submachine guns, and shotguns. Standing further away, they also tested the sniper rifles.


For these tests, Davengeful did not use any hop-up attachments and simply fired with perfect accuracy to gain a base stat. That means there is no Selectfire Prowler data to be used, just the gun’s typical burst behavior. Still, the regular version of the SMG remains one of the strongest guns in the game.

As no surprise to players who have dropped into a game of Apex Legends even once, the Mozambique is a grotesque weapon. While its headshot TTK is decent (and faster than some of the game’s other guns), its body TTK is a whopping 4.504 seconds. 

For context, that’s slightly longer than it would take for you to down four enemies, hitting just body shots, with the R-99.

The R-99 simply continues to shred enemies in Season 6.

With TTK listed in seconds and no hop-ups included, here’s how the Season 6 list of weapons stacks up. This is current as of October 16, 2020, so all data is subject to change with the release of new patches.

As it stands, the list proceeds downward from light weapons, to heavy, to sniper, to energy, to shotguns, and, finally, the highly touted R-99 Supply Drop gift.

Apex Legends Season 6 Weapon TTKs

Gun Headshot TTK Body TTK
RE-45 1.103 1.389
P2020 1.231 1.770
R-301 0.689 1.262
Alternator 1.040 1.517
G7 Scout 1.009 1.741
Wingman 1.009 1.834
Spitfire 0.785 1.453
Prowler 0.785 1.262
Hemlok 0.689 1.549
Flatline 0.817 1.231
Sentinel 2.053 3.581
Charge Rifle 2.242 3.517
Longbow 1.009 2.625
Triple Take 1.009 1.741
Volt 0.913 1.231
Devotion 1.103 1.581
Havoc 1.103 1.612
L-Star 0.722 1.326
Mozambique 1.198 4.504
EVA-8 1.262 1.741
Mastiff 1.198 1.262
Peacekeeper 1.294 1.549
R-99 0.850 1.103

As you’ll notice, the R-99 is entirely deserving of its rarity because it has the game’s fastest body TTK and one of the fastest headshot TTKs. Its longtime companion among revered light guns, the R-301, is also devastating — with the fastest headshot TTK in the entire game.


While the sniper rifles may feel underpowered from this table, it should be remembered that this is only raw, base data. Snipers are easier to hit shots with from range, thanks to scopes and bullet velocity, so players shouldn’t be discouraged just by the data found here.

Still, they should be discouraged from using the Mozambique. The numbers aren’t lying with that one.
