In Apex Legends Mobile, new characters are introduced every season, and this time a popular character from the PC and console version is joining the roster. Crypto, one of the best Recon Legends in the game, has arrived along with the Hyperbeat battle pass. Crypto’s abilities and perks were revealed in the official blog, and they function differently in Apex Legends Mobile. Here’s everything you need to know before playing Crypto in Apex Legends Mobile. 

All Crypto abilities in Apex Legends Mobile

As a hacker, Crypto is classified as a Recon Legend in Apex Legends Mobile. His aerial drone scans opponents from a distance without revealing Crypto’s location. Players can effectively scan ahead to alert teammates before rushing into a specific area. All of Crypto’s abilities are listed below: 

  • Passive: Neurolink – All traps and opponents detected within a 30 meters range by the Surveillance Drone are marked and visible to squadmates.
  • Tactical: Surveillance Drone – Crypto deploys a pilotable drone that scans the region ahead highlighting enemies.
  • Ultimate: Drone EMP – Crypto’s Drone charges up and uses an EMP blast that deals Shield damage, slows enemies, and disables traps. 

Crypto’s Drone has been redesigned especially for Apex Legends Mobile. The Drone follows Crypto and automatically tracks opponents nearby. As opposed to manually controlling the Drone from cover, Crypto can now head into battles with his surveillance equipment. This feature is quite intuitive as Crypto players are often punished for sitting unguarded to maneuver the Drone. 

Since Crypto is a Recon legend, he can scan Survey Beacons around the map to reveal the next zone’s location. To unlock this Legend you will need Crypto Fragments from the battle pass. Similar to Rhapsody, players need to collect 10 Crypto Fragments to unlock this character. Alternatively, you can unlock the character by spending 750 Apex Coins. You will get 10 Crypto Fragments by progressing to Level 25 in the Hyperbear battle pass in Apex Legends Mobile.
