Poor old Cyrpto has one of worst pick rates in Apex Legends. He’s just not very good. But one of the few reasons you might still choose to play him is his unique ability to pick up banners from your teammates.

As you can see, it will compete with the mobile respawn beacon and heat sink for that valuable emergency gear slot. But compared to those last two items, it could honestly see more play.

We’ll let you know as soon as we know more about this strange new device. Currently, we expect it to be released at the same time as the new season later this summer. Until then, you have just enough time to grind the Battle Pass and earn it Ridiculously cool Bloodhound skin. Good luck!
