Apex Legends fans are eagerly anticipating the next era of the game which will be introducing tons of new content, but players are now finding clues for a heavily rumored character named Crypto.

Respawn Entertainment are on the verge of launching Season 2 to their game which will be the rallying call for players to grind out more matches in King’s Canyon now that there’s content to rummage through including a new character named Wattson.

As fans prepare for the upcoming trailer that is sure to reveal a lot more in-game features to come, the devs sneaked in a teaser for a surprise reveal that may be on its way to the battle royale soon.

Crypto’s tease in Apex Legends

In a Reddit thread, emerging Apex Legends dataminer and theory crafter ‘FrozenFroh’ showed a mysterious laptop around that could have something to do with the next season’s events.

“The back is using Mendoko’s logo and the main screen is: *Enact Countermeasure Obfuscation* *PING RETURNED: (S/IN: A34X_N25)* *BRACH.INI OPERATIONAL: EXFIL IMMINENT*,” FrozenFroh said, then adding. “And an image of the repulsor is to the right.”

While the laptop doesn’t seem to be much on the surface, the in-game file for that particular element has a blatant connection to the as-of-yet-unannounced legends simply being “crypto_laptop_tease.”

Going by the clues on Crypto’s computer screen, it looks like the character will be causing a lot of mayhem before making an appearance on King’s Canyon.

How does Crypto fit into Apex Legends?

Respawn has been releasing a lot of teasers in the lead up to their new season that have been suggesting all’s been going well with the infrastructure of King’s Canyon.

But going by what FrozenFroh has been theorizing, it seems like Crypto could quickly set loose the natural forces of Solace onto the map including its beasts.

Using his expertise in hacking tech, FrozenFroh thinks that the upcoming legend is going to “jam the Repulsor” that has been protecting the map.

After the system goes down, this will likely be when shear mayhem sweeps King’s Canyon to really open up the events of Season 2 or beyond.

Whether Crypto will be released or even announced in Season 2 is still largely unknown, but it’s starting to be clear that he’ll clearly have an influence in Apex Legends soon.

Apex Legends YouTuber leaks Season 7 lobby & Horizon skin on accident

An Italian Youtuber seems to have accidentally shared embargoed footage of the upcoming Apex Legends Season 7’s lobby, challenges, and even a brand new skin for the yet-to-be-released Horizon character.

Apex Legends Season 7 is set to kick off on November 4, and with everyone itching to get a look at all of the new content headed our way, some of it may have been unveiled a tad bit too early.

As is the case before pretty much every new season, some of the game’s more prominent content creators are given early access to try out and record the new content for their YouTube channels, which can’t be released before a specified date.

For S7, that date was Monday, November 2, but, on October 31, YouTuber Mox600 inadvertently uploaded a shot of Horizon with her new outfit skin standing in the revamped lobby, before he quickly made the video private.

In the leaked video, we see a mohawked, neon Horizon who’s also rocking some goggles and what seems to be body armor as well. Let’s just say it’s a good thing Olympus seems to have plenty of color going on because this one might stick out like a sore thumb on maps like Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.

Because Respawn won’t start selling new items for her until the season gets going, this cosmetic is most likely a Battle Pass skin, maybe even the one players unlock in the final Tier.

Apex’s pre-game lobby has a fresh new look as well, as it seems to actually be outside in the streets of Olympus, with the brand new Season 7 map serving as a backdrop for player banners.

Along with these we also got a look at the new STARS system. Combined with match XP, the STARS will contribute to a repeatable weekly challenge that grants a full Battle Pass level with each completion. This XP is specific to Battle Pass, meaning it won’t impact Account Level progression.

While this definitely appears to be a legit leak of upcoming Season 7 content, in the grand scheme of things there’s still a lot of actual gameplay to see as we get ready to head into Olympus, so we wouldn’t really consider this that massive of a spoiler.

Exactly what will be included in the upcoming Battle Pass should be soon revealed as well, but at least we got a look at one of the skins that’ll likely be featured, and if it’s anything to go by, Season 7 might be a doozy.
