Apex Legends Mobile is all set to release its Season 3 update featuring a well-known legend Crypto, a new POI, store changes and more. The forthcoming update is named Hyperbeat and it will go live on 23 August 2022 at 5:00 PM PST with a brand new battle pass and ranked split.
Crypto is one of the earliest legends in Apex Legends but has not been a part of the mobile variant until this update. His ability can be used to gain intel from the surroundings from his drone and take further action. To use his drone, you have to lose your control over the character to operate the drone. The new update also comes with several unique legend perks of Crypto. Let’s know more details regarding the upcoming update.

There are other changes included in the game’s store. The devs have implemented a new mechanic to increase the drop rate 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 set forth in the in-game Store Vault odds disclosures). The increased drop rates will reset after you pull an Eternal cosmetic item.
