Respawn Entertainment might be quenching the thirst of Apex Legends fans by finally giving them the Season 1 Battle Pass they’ve been waiting for, but Dr Disrespect doesn’t think it’s going to do much for the ‘evaporating’ game. 

The popular Twitch streamer, who has over 3.3 million followers on the platform, has previously discussed how he is burnt out with Apex Legends due to a lack of new content. 

Now, he believes that despite the incoming Season 1 Battle Pass – which is set to bring a brand new legend, Octane, to the game and a number of balance changes – the game isn’t going to improve as a result. 

G FUELDr Disrespect doesn’t seem to see a bright future for Apex Legends, in its current state.

“Apex is quickly evaporating,” he said during a stream on March 18. “Here’s what the season pass is going to do… Is it going to take it to the next level? No. Not in my opinion.” 

The Season 1 Battle Pass is expected to land on March 19, after leaks previously touted that March 12 was the date for players to mark on their calendars. However, judging by these comments, Dr Disrespect doesn’t seem as excited as some fans have been in the buildup to its launch. 

“With excitement, with interest, it’s kind of already tapering off – actually, pretty quickly. I think the season pass is just going to bump it up just a little bit in terms of [allowing them to] sustaining it. That’s why content is so important.”

The Doc, as many of his fans will know, always tends to put an emphasis on new content when giving his verdict on a game. In the case of Apex Legends, he clearly thinks there might be a problem later down the road.

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.
