Crypto is apparently being buffed in Season 12, and Apex Legends leaker Thordan Smash believes he knows what the changes will be. Crypto has never found his footing in the Apex Legends meta as his drone takes him out of the action. While it's beneficial in small scenarios, players are too aggressive for you to be able to scout with your drone.
Hence his low play rate and Respawn Entertainment working on a fix. The community has given plenty of feedback and ideas on Reddit, but it seems we have an idea of what's to come.
It started with Thordan tweeting, "Rev, octane and crypto are going to destroy lobbies this season mark my words." Then someone responds, doubting that anything done to Crypto will make him viable. That's when we get the possible buff.
"He can Insta throw his emp blast. Imagine a rev totem with a jump pad and crypto stunning and knocking shields without going into drone."
The biggest change is the ability for Crypto to use his EMP blast without going into his drone. That's going to help massively with staying aggressive with your teammates. The worst feeling is having to stand behind a tree, fly your drone around while your teammates do all the fighting.
Respawn has yet to confirm the specifics for any Crypto buffs.
