An Apex Legends fan offered their take on one of the game’s most fascinating characters, Bloodhound, which incredibly captured the mystery and intrigue they bring to the game.

Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale features a wide array of colorful Legends each with unique personalities. But Bloodhound stands out as the enigma of the cast with their cryptic past and obscure charm.

With that in mind, Reddit user ‘jssr95’ was able to create a stunning image of the Technological Tracker in action with an art style that perfectly compliments the Legend’s mystifying persona.

Respawn EntertainmentThe Legend is shrouded in mystery, but that only adds to their character.

The sketch was made using only pencils, but it seems it was the right weapon of choice to tackle the portrait since it gives Bloodhound an incredibly ominous vibe.

The artist took a couple of creative liberties by giving them a battle-tested sort of look with a ripped left sleeve and a cape that’s definitely seen better days.

Bloodhound is accompanied by their unnamed avian partner and looks to be in the middle of a hunt due since they have their knife in hand while taking a hard skid across the ground.

The image is all the more impressive considering jssr95 committed five hours to make the freehand sketch of Bloth Hoondr, saying: “Made this one completely from scratch. No reference or studies.”

Jssr95 also mentioned that there could be a few more renditions of other Legends if people liked the post. With his sketch so far amassing about 30,000 upvotes with a couple gilds to boot, it’s safe to say that fans of the piece have another coming sometime soon.

Other commenters were quick to request Pathfinder and Wraith for the artist’s next project in a similar vein.

Regardless, if their next design mirrors the quality of Bloodhound’s portrait, then fans have an incredible piece waiting for them.

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.
