A new Apex Legends leak on August 27 has apparently revealed Crypto, a new weapon for Season 3 and a new skin for Gibraltar that could tease an upcoming Halloween event.

The leak apparently happened at the Game Stop Manager's Conference on August 25, and the images were posted a few days later on August 27 to Reddit by user Teves3D.

So far there's no release date for any of the leaked content and nothing is known about the images, other than what they look like, but if we look closely we can start drawing some conclusions at least.

First look at Crypto

previous images of the character.

There's not too much information about the new Legend or his abilities in the image, but if you look by the "N", there appears to be a small robot/drone that could be part of his kit.

New Charge Rifle Weapon

The new weapon is called the "Charge Rifle" and according to Teves3D, comes from the Titanfall games, like a lot of the Apex weapons do.

We don't know what the gun will be capable of, but it was used in Titanfall to take out Titans, and users on Reddit have compared it to the Spartan Laser from Halo 3.

Gibraltar Halloween skin

Finally, Gibraltar had a new skin revealed that appears to transform him into Frankenstein's Monster and could be a teaser for a new Halloween event this year - although there's nothing to confirm that, yet.

We don't know if there will be an Apex Legends Halloween event, or if Apex will just release special seasonal skins for the holiday, but we do know that this is already one of Gibraltar's best skins in the game.

Crypto appears much differently than he did in previous "leaked" images.

Dexerto has reached out to Respawn regarding the leaks, but so far the publisher has yet to make any official statement on the images.
