Apex Legends players have found clues that may have revealed the identity of the next new Legend to be released in the game.
The highly anticipated second season of Apex Legends will be releasing soon, and is set to include a lot of new content for the popular battle royale.
However, Wattson may not be the only new Legend that makes its debut in Season 2, as recent clues that have popped up point to a possible second playable hero added as well.

The new Legend is believed to be named Crypto, a character about whom nothing is really known about at this point except for his appearance.
Recently, Reddit user FrozenFroh posted an in-depth breakdown of what he suspects will be an in-game event that will launch the start of Season 2.
In his post, the data-miner includes a screenshot taken from the game files showing a file called ‘crypto_laptop_tease,’ which he believes will play a role in said in-game event.
He then goes on to substantiate his theory with screenshots taken from official trailers and other pieces of game art that he believes are strong suggestions and clues that some sort of major change is coming to the map, and that Crypto will play a role in it.
According to FrozenFroh:
- Crypto is the Korean guy from Pathfinder’s background art
- His sword is in the S2 Logo
- His data-mined abilities involve JAMMING: from stopping Pathfinder’s maphacks to stopping Bloodhound’s Sonar ability.
FrozenFroh believes that this character will JAM the Repulsor, which will cause a flood, and much more, in Season 2.
FrozenFroh followed his post up with another one on June 21, yet again presenting what he believes are clues that Crypto will indeed have some role to play at the start and possibly even during Season 2.
Another Apex Legend expert, YouTuber Staycation, presenting his take on the data-mined leaked in a recent video, theorizing that Crypto will use his abilities to hack the Repulsor Tower and open it, releasing creatures into the map, including the mysterious new Flyers.
Segment on Crypto starts at 1:06 mark
Crypto’s name first surfaced when an image was leaked back in March containing a slew of new Legends that had not been released at that point.
One of the characters shown in that image was Wattson, who has, of course, since been confirmed to be on her way to King’s Canyon.
Crypto can also be seen on a poster that’s hanging in the background of poster art for the Pathfinder. Although the robotic character is very much the central focus of the image, the mysterious new Legend’s presence can clearly be seen on the top left corner of the art.
It’s worth noting that this artwork has been used by Respawn Entertainment in official capacity, which would likely not have happened if Crypto was nothing more than just a rumor.
While all of this information points to Respawn possibly surprising their fan-base with the introduction of not one but two brand new Legends in Season 2, it must all be taken with a grain of salt, since nothing has been officially confirmed or announced.
Even if Crypto is not released as a playable character during the second season, considering that there is a lot more info out there about him than any other unreleased Legend, it could be that Respawn have him lined up for Season 3.
