A Crypto buff is coming to Apex Legends, according to Respawn Entertainment Design Director Jason McCord. This is great news for fans of the drone-controlling Legend, as he hasn't found his place in the meta ever since he was introduced.
Since Apex Legends is such a fast paced battle royale, having to stop and scout or potentially start a fight in a disadvantage, is too problematic.
Crypto Buff is Coming to Apex Legends
It seems Respawn is aware of the issue. Someone tweeted at McCord asking if Apex Legends was going to buff Crypto anytime soon. The answer was split, "We are talking about stuff. Still a ways out probably, but agree that he needs something!" While Respawn is talking and working on a potential buff to Crypto, it seems the change is ways off.
Never a good sign, since Respawn adds content at a much slower pace compared to its competitors. We could have to wait until Season 6, before such changes arrive which isn't viable for the health of the game.
