Huge mysteries are often included in the Apex Legends lore and Crypto’s sister has added to the collection with a final bunker teaser, claiming there’s a character in the shadows that’s out to get him. 

These loot bunkers have appeared in recent times, allowing legends to hop inside, grab some loot, but also find out more information about the underlying story of the Apex Games.

It might be a multiplayer game, but Respawn Entertainment is always giving its player base an opportunity to learn more about its characters, and the latest teaser is a great example of that.

This time, what was said was rather interesting as well, even if we’re all forced to read between the lines.

Crypto might be known as a Surveillance Expert, using his drone to find people, although it seems somebody else is actually spying on him these days.

There’s already a fine selection of legends in-game that we know about, with most recent additions including Revenant and Loba. However, there was no name given to the character that appears to be watching Crypto’s every move right now. Let’s take a look at what his sister says in the teaser…

“They didn’t know the doors had overrides. That’s how I got away. They also didn’t know about the backdoors into their security archive… I’m safe. I’m laying low. But you gotta know – They’re working for one guy. I don’t know his name but he’s watching you… from the inside.”

This decoded message leaves more questions than answers in terms of what’s to come for Crypto, with the hidden figure potentially being somebody new to soon arrive on the scene, or potentially a current character we already know about. Nothing is for certain.

In the absence of something concrete, some players on Reddit have been speculating about the identity of the spy. One user posted: “Is she possibly talking about Kuben Blisk?” while another added: “I thought that to but when she said someone watching you just one guy from the inside meaning he’s got to be in the games, Revenant? ”

For those who aren’t aware, Kuben Blisk was a key part of the Titanfall story, and leader of Apex Predators, who are an infamous outfit of ruthless freelance Pilots.

Some fans have wanted to see Kuben Blisk appear in Apex Legends for some time.

He’s been linked with the battle royale game for some time, and has been discovered in the game’s files in the past, which is usually an indicator of new content. Nothing ever materialized, though some members of the community seem convinced he’s the man behind the plan to get Crypto here.

Whether or not he’ll be popping his head into the Apex Games any time soon is really a question for Respawn. They appear to be plotting something big for the next legend, following a teaser including Ash from the Titanfall series, which was showcased in the game’s Broken Ghost quest line.

Could these two teasers be related? We’ll have to wait and see.

Why Wattson’s pylon ability is “eating” grenades in Apex Legends

After players seem to be confused about the Apex Legends character Wattson “eating” grenades, a fan has taken to Reddit to explain just exactly what is going on – and the answer is a bit more complicated than it might seem at first glance.

Confusing special abilities are always bound to happen, especially in games like Apex Legends, where every characters ability is different. Wattson, who has been a part of the game since Season 2, is a perfect example of a character who has some crazy abilities, but can be a bit confusing for some players.

For those that don’t know, she can place down an “Interception Pylon” which blocks incoming grenades, equipment, etc. in order to protect you, similar to a Trophy System from the Call of Duty franchise. Some people have been confused by this ability, claiming it’s destroying or “eating” their own grenades, which is definitely a bit peculiar. Now, thanks to a player, there’s finally a decent explanation for what’s going on.

Wattson, who was added to the game over a year ago, has the ability to stop grenades.

Interception Pylon eating grenades?

According to Reddit user u/Jameso4e, who is a self-proclaimed Wattson main with 3,500 kills, there two different circles which appear when a player places the Pylon, one that destroys only “incoming” grenades/equipment and one that destroys all of them.

The outer rings is the one that destroys all equipment, meaning players should be looking to avoid standing near that one when throwing their grenades inside of the two circles. In layman’s terms, you’ll have to watch where you’re positioned if you don’t want the Pylon to “eat” your grenades.

In a video made by Jameso4e demonstrating the problem, players can very clearly see two circles. When he stands closer to the inner circle, he has no problem throwing grenades out but when he stands near the outer circle, the equipment gets “eaten”. While that may sound a bit confusing at first, once you practice, it seems to be pretty easy to master.

As to why the ability causing this, nobody really knows, but the user theorizes that it’s due to bugs. It’s been over a year since Wattson was added to the game, so here’s hoping that now that the ability has been explained, more people understand it.
