Apex Legends season 3 has arrived and it brought Crypto, the game’s newest Legend, with it. Crypto is a skilled hacker and one of the game’s most supportive characters. Every piece of Crypto’s kit is designed to work together to help give his team all the information they need to win every firefight.

Here’s a rundown of all of Crypto’s abilities and how they work together.

Tactical Ability — Surveillance Drone

Crypto main tool is his Surveillance Drone ability. The ability activates Crypto’s drone and lets it start exploring the area. As it floats around the drone will uncover enemy positions and can even provide Crypto with a view of the battlefield from high above, or behind enemy lines.

Passive Ability — Neurolink

When Crypto’s Surveillance Drone detects and enemy near Crypto they’re marked for Crypto and his allies to see.

Ultimate Ability — Drone EMP

Crypto’s Surveillance Drone emits and EMP blast that deal shield damage, slows enemies, and disables traps. While this ability is extra useful when your enemy is in a fortified position, the shield damage and slow mean that it can give you the leg up in almost any fight.
