Crypto Abilities Supposedly Leaked by Apex Legends Data Miner

Crypto has been a mystery in Apex Legends since the name was first data mined, but it finally looks like we have some concrete information on the possible next Legend. Data miner That1MiningGuy has supposedly found the Legend's abilities.

These abilities have not been confirmed by Respawn Entertainment and since they are datamined from files, they are subject to change. But here's what has been allegedly uncovered:

Here are Crypto's abilities, according to the leak.

  • Tactical: Aerial Drone - Surveillance camera drone, lasts for 40 seconds, 200 meter range. Can be destroyed. Can hack doors, loot bins and pick up banners with drone.
  • Passive: Neuro Link - Crypto and teammates see what surveillance drone detect up to 30 meters away.
  • Ultimate: Weapon Drone EMP - Charge up an EMP blast from your drone. Deals shield damage, slows enemies and disables all traps.

It's not known when Crypto will release but many speculate the start of Season 3 will see Crypto hit the server. He's an unknown oddity, but these abilities look like they deal directly with Wattson's skill set. He's great at scouting out areas and shutdown traps. Currently, the meta is all about protecting buildings and controlling small sections with Wattson's traps. That could come to an end with Crypto.
