Apex Legends Mobile Season 3 Patch Notes - New Legend, Ranked Split, More

Apex Legends Mobile Season 2 is about to end, and EA has already hyped up the players by announcing the details of the new Apex Legends Mobile Season 3. The new upcoming Apex Legends Mobile Season 3 will be called Apex Legends Mobile Season: Hyperbeat, and with the new season, many new in-game items, including a new legend, will be introduced.

The new Legend will be known as Crypto, a hacker and encryption expert. This new season also means that the ranks will be reset, and new ranked rewards will be distributed along with a new seasonal battle pass. The new season is scheduled to release on 23rd at 5:00 PM PDT. Here are the complete details about the upcoming Apex Legends Mobile Season 3: Hyperbeat.

Apex Legends Mobile S3 - New Legend Crypto

Crypto specializes in secrets. A brilliant hacker and encryption expert, he uses aerial drones to spy on opponents in the Apex Arena without being seen. He also has a secret of his own: his name is Tae Joon Park, and he joined the Apex Games to find the people who framed him for murder. 

An orphan abandoned at a young age, Tae Joon escaped a life of squalor by becoming a computer engineer for the Mercenary Syndicate, along with his foster sister, Mila Alexander. One day, Tae Joon and Mila stumbled upon an algorithm that could predict the result of any Apex Games match, hidden away in the Games’ computer systems. 

That caught the attention of the wrong people - the next day, Mila disappeared, and Tae Joon was forced into hiding after he was framed for her murder. He’s joined the Games to clear his name - because sometimes the spotlight is the best place to hide.

Crypto Abilities

  • Passive: Neurolink - Enemies and traps detected by your surveillance Drone are marked for your squad within 30 meters range.
  • Tactical: Surveillance Drone - Deploy a pilotable drone to surveil your surroundings. The drone detects enemy squads and battlefield hazards.
  • Ultimate: Drone EMP - Your Drone sets off an EMP blast that deals Shield damage, slows enemies and disables traps.

Dev Note: Crypto’s drone has been redesigned for Apex Mobile. Now, the Drone can follow Crypto and automatically track nearby enemies for periods of time. 

Crypto’s Legend Perks

  • Self Destruct: Destroyed drones explode after 3s, slowing and damaging enemies caught in the blast.
  • Hidden User: Become semi-transparent when controlling drones.
  • System Scan: Your drone reveals an enemy's HP and armor after 3s of scanning.
  • Shut Down: Your Ultimate also damages HP but cannot kill an enemy.
  • Lag Bomb: Your drone can launch an EMP bomb that slows and deals damage.
  • Salvage Operation: Your drone can retrieve items.
  • Battle Adaptation: Using your Finisher adds 100 points to your EVO Shield.
  • 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 squad on the mini map.

Store Vault Changes

Starting during Hyperbeat we have implemented a new mechanic to increase the drop rates for Eternal cosmetic items in the Store Vault! As you continue to draw from the Store Vault, the drop rates of the Eternal cosmetic items in the pool increase up to a specified cap (as outlined in the in-game Store Vault odds disclosures). 

The increased drop rates will reset after you pull an Eternal cosmetic item. Thank you for your continual feedback about Apex Legends Mobile! Please see the drop rates, additional rules, and disclosures on the in-game Store Vault page for further details.
