Crypto Comes to Apex Mobile in Hyperbeat Update With Map Updates, Cosmetics, and More

Apex Legends MobileThe new season of is almost here. Hyperbeat is finally bringing Crypto to the mobile version of Apex Games with a new ranked division, new events, and gameplay updates. Hyperbeat kicks off August 23, days away.

The most exciting update is another familiar legend joining the ever-expanding roster, as Crypto has joined the dangerous Apex Games in clearing his name. Formerly Tae Joon Park, Crypto escaped a “life of misery” by becoming a computer engineer for the Syndicate. But when he came across an algorithm that could predict the results of Apex Games matches, Crypto was forced into hiding, accused of murdering his adopted sister who had gone missing.

Crypto is not a very popular choice in Apex Legendsbut may have a chance in Movable apex through its information gathering capabilities. Crypto uses a drone to spy on his opponents while remaining invisible.

Although Crypto’s kit is quite similar to the original PC version, some changes have been made specifically for the mobile game.

Crypto’s passive is Neurolink. Enemies spotted by his surveillance drone are marked for your entire team within a 30 meter radius. Its tactic is Surveillance Drone, detecting enemy squads and dangers on the battlefield. Exclusively in the mobile game, Crypto’s drone can automatically follow him as he moves, stalking enemies at the same time. Cryptos ultimate is Drone EMP, allowing it to deal shield damage and slow enemies while disabling the opposing team’s traps.

Benefits of Crypto Legend in Apex Mobile:

Self-destruct: Destroyed drones explode after three seconds, slowing and damaging enemies caught in the explosion.

Hidden user: Become semi-transparent when controlling drones.

System analysis: Your drone reveals an enemy’s HP and armor after three seconds of scanning.

Close: Your Ultimate also damages HP, but cannot kill an enemy.

Time bomb : Your drone can launch an EMP bomb that slows down and deals damage.

Rescue operation: Your drone can pick up items.

Adaptation to combat: Using your Finisher adds 100 points to your EVO Shield.

To restart: Using your Finisher instantly repairs your drone or reduces your Ultimate’s cooldown by 30%.

Interrogator: Using your Finisher reveals the location of your target’s team on the minimap.

Kings Canyon Updates

Hyperbeat presents Pythas Theater in Kings Canyon. Players must fight their way through Rhapsody’s POI modification song to claim rewards.

The other big change to Kings Canyon is the addition of VIP Supply Bins containing VIP Passes for special access to powerful gear.

Hyperbeat is also bringing a leaderboard update and adding additional ranked rewards. Your rank will be reset, so you will need to level up to get the new rewards. The new battle pass is also coming with the new season, bringing new cosmetics for Lifeline, Mirage, Pathfinder, and a collection of weapons, according to the official Hyperbeat patch notes.

Hyperbeat is also introducing a new mechanism in the Store Vault. The new mechanic will increase the drop rates of Eternal cosmetic items. As you draw from the Store Vault, drop rates for this cosmetic line will increase until it hits a cap. Once you remove an Eternal cosmetic item, the drop rates will be reset.

Players can access the latest version of Movable apex when Hyperbeat releases on August 23.
