Powerful Crypto Cheat Gives Free Shield Charge With Drone In Apex Legends
Crypto networks have an easy way to recharge their shields while hiding in Apex Legends, and it’s actually pretty perfect for late-game situations.
After on-demand fan requests over the past few seasons, Respawn Entertainment has finally given Crypto some love in Apex Legends Season 12, giving the recognition legend a long-awaited buff.
While some Crypto players want developers to go a step further and give it a bit more power, the drone is still an incredibly useful tool for scouting out positions and getting one step ahead of opponents.
On top of that, it can also be used to get some much-needed charging on Evo Shields, but you’ll need to line things up pretty perfectly along a Wattson Pylon.
The trick was widely evidenced by Twitch streamer xronya, who used Crypto’s drone while sitting inside a building, however, they were in the line of sight of a pylon. nearby Wattson intercept.
Although Wattson’s ultimate charges the shields of nearby players, xronya received no benefit until he flew Crypto’s drone into range of it, as this places them both in the line of sight and within reach of the pylon. Once they returned to the drone, their shield started regenerating as if they were standing next to the Wattson Ultimate as normal.
As some players have noted, this is a pretty cool cheat to have in your back pocket, but it’s pretty situational. “I guess it will be fixed, but it’s nice to see some cool Crypto buffs/passives you wouldn’t think of,” one said.

“Starting to think Crypto was never broke, but we were all too dumb to realize how amazing he really was all the time,” another player added, while some jokingly called him “recharge without thread” for Crypto Networks.
As some have noted, the trick could very well be fixed in Season 13, as it’s a bit of an exploit between the two abilities. However, we’ll just have to wait and see if that happens.
