Here we’ll talk about all the best Crypto skins that Respawn has released in Apex Legends so far in 2022.
Since the beginning of Apex Legends, Respawn has introduced a considerable number of characters in the game. Until season 13, we have seen 21 Legends being released into Apex Legends, all with their own abilities and unique features.
In Apex Legends, the characters are divided into four categories: offensive, defensive, recon, and support. Except for the support categories, all other classes have a variety of legends. There are currently 5 Recon characters in the game, with Seer being the latest of them all, released in Season 10 of Apex Legends.
Bloodhound, Pathfinder, Crypto, Valkyrie, and Seer are the 5 Recon Legends currently in the game. Bloodhound and Pathfinder have always been in Apex Legends since its release. Crypto was the first Recon Legend who was not a part of the initial roster and was introduced in Season 3.
Crypto is a brilliant hacker who was framed for the murder of her foster sister. Crypto joined the Apex game in Season 3 to clear his name once and for all from the wrongdoings that he did not commit. He is a great recon character who can support his team from quite a distance.
Though Crypto wasn’t very popular at the beginning, through some buffs and nerfs, he is now one of the most played legends in the highest level of competitive Apex Legends. Since Season 3, Respawn has released a fairly diverse collection of skins for this secret Legend in the game.

How Many Crypto Skins are there in Apex Legends?
Right now, in season 13 of Apex Legends, Respawn has released 67 skins for Crypto so far. And among them, there are 19 legendary, 9 epic, 23 rare, and 16 common skins for Crypto.
Best Crypto Skins in Apex Legends (A Complete Tier List)
Here we’ll rank all the Crypto skins that Respawn has released so far in the game. We’ll put all the skins into three distinct tiers such as S-Tier, A-Tier, and lastly B-Tier.
The S-Tier Crypto skins are the elite skins that every Crypto player wishes to own. The A-Tier skins are rare, and they fall closely behind their S-Tier counterparts. Lastly, B-Tier skins are legendary cosmetics, but they feel very ordinary compared to the S and A-Tier Crypto skins.
We have ranked these Crypto skins based on their looks, rarity, and popularity. Like any other tier list, this one is also purely subjective, and any of the mentioned skins can be put anywhere on the list. This list is intended mainly to assist novices and veteran players looking for some of the best-looking legendary Crypto skins.
|Best(S-Tier)||Hallowed Spirit, Machine Language, The Masked Dancer, Rising Phoenix|
|Good(A-Tier)||The Hired Gun, Devil’s Advocate, Hype Beast, Whitelisted, Nomad Overseer|
|Average(B-Tier)||Seeker of Knowledge, Inconspicuous, Deadly Bite|
Top 10 Best Crypto skins in Apex Legends
Here, we’ll aim to highlight some of Respawn’s best-looking legendary Crypto skins thus far in Season 13. Though Crypto has limited legendary skins, he has some of the coolest-looking ones, and this top ten list will serve as a reference for players. In addition, this list will be ranked from worst to the best.
10. Deadly Bite
Deadly Bite is a Vampire-themed Crypto skin that was originally released in Fight or Fright Event in 2019. Vampires like to stay in the dark, same as Crypto, who has been hiding in the game since Season 3 without revealing his actual identity.
Inconspicuous skin was released in the Genesis Collection Event in Season 9. Before Crypto was framed as the murderer of her foster sister, he was a computer engineer for the Mercenary Syndicate. With Insconpicuous skin, Crypto looks like an ordinary person with formal attire, just as when he wanted to lead a normal life until his life took a very dangerous turn.
8. Seeker of Knowledge
Crypto is the smartest of all Legends in the game. He has survived his life and the Apex game through his knowledge and experience. Seeker of Knowledge gives him a very scholarly look which actually goes with Crypto’s image. This skin was released in the Lost Treasures Event in Season 5.
7. Nomad Overseer
Respawn went to a different path while creating the Nomad Overseer skin for Crypto. Respawn gave Crypto a secret ancient Asian-warrior look which is not surprising as Crypto is a great warrior who has been fighting his whole life. Nomad Overseer was released in the Chaos Theory Collection Event in Season 8.
Whitelisted is one of the cleanest skins for Crypto. In this skin, Crypto looks like a killer cyborg, ready to fight with anyone who comes looking for him. The white and black color combination and the design of his body give this skin a more futuristic look. The skin was a Part of the System Override Collection Event in Season 4.
5. Hype Beast
Respawn decided to give Crypto a skin, where he looks like a groovy teenager. The vibrant color and costume make him look very stylish with this skin, and it is the only Legendary Crypto skin that makes him look like he does not want to stay a secret. Hype beast was launched in the Grand Soirée Themed Event in Season 3.
4. The Hired Gun
The Hired Gun is a very simplistic skin for Crypto, and it is one of the two default Legendary skins on the list. Crypto looks like a man in black on this skin. His discreet hairstyle and outfit make him look like he is going to slay some enemies in a blink of an eye. The Devil’s Advocate is also a nice version of the skin that has a red color combination with white hair.
3. The Masked Dancer
Crypto is a nocturnal Legend who wants to keep himself in the dark, just like an owl who stays awake at night. With this skin, Crypto looks like a scarecrow, just as much as he looks like an owl. The white and light yellow color costumes make the overall skin look cleaner. Rising Phoenix is also a great alternative for this skin who is looking for a more colorful version of this skin.
2. Machine Language
Machine Language is one of the stylish skins in Apex Legends. There isn’t much going on with the skin, but still, the skin creates a great overall impression at first look, especially because of the flashy facemask and haircut. Machine Language was released in the Unshackled Event in Season 12.
1. Hallowed Spirit
Hallowed Spirit is by far the best Crypto skin in Apex Legends. At first glance, the skin looks a lot like the R-301 Golden Rampage, but the difference is that Crypto has a Lion face mask, and the Golden Rampage has a Rino face. The color of Hallowed Spirit is also a little worn out, which actually looks incredible on him. Hallowed Spirit was released in the Champion Edition in 2020.
The event and recolor skins may ultimately make their way to the store, and skins like Whitelisted, Hype Beast and Hallowed Spirit may still be available in the future.
Respawn has announced that battle pass skins from Season 11 and onwards may be available in an event-specific skin package in the future, so the Crypto skins that will come to battle pass in the future might make it into the store.
Upcoming Crypto Skins
As of writing, there has been no new development regarding any new Crypto skins in the game. We’ll definitely highlight more Crypto skins as soon as they get announced.
