An Apex Legends fan divulged a fantastic buff idea for Crypto. While other character-based games usually create overpowered new characters, Apex Legends tends to do the opposite. New Legends struggle to find a place in the meta, and Respawn Entertainment usually has to buff them. Crypto and Revenant were both examples of this byproduct. Both struggled initially, and while Revenant was eventually salvaged, Crypto has been left behind.

Almost every Legend has a viable strategy in the game except for Crypto, and a Redditor had an idea to fix that problem.

Redditor u/Spylt420 shared an idea, "Completing a finisher on an enemy reveals that enemy's team locations for five seconds." It's not a bad idea and could help teams stay aggressive, even with a Crypto.

Some other fans even built on the idea, "What they should do is instead of an orange highlight on the enemy is should be colored based on their armor." This would give players even more information, allowing them to choose the weaker of the two remaining teammates. Crypto is all about knowledge. He's meant to scout out the enemy team, but since the game is built to be fast-paced, Crypto slows things down. Giving him the ability to scout the enemy team while staying near the team is a game-changer.
