A lore video featuring a confrontation between Loba and Revenant came first. Pathfinder’s episode of the Stories from the Outlands series followed next, and it was nothing short of spectacular. Now, the latest lore segment, in the form of another voiced-over video, features an interaction between Crypto and Wattson.

In the video, Crypto and Wattson are meeting each other in an attempt to renew their worn-out friendship following the aftermath of The Broken Ghost quest from Season 5.

Crypto revealing his real identity to Wattson rekindles their friendship in Apex Legends

Crypto has realized that to gain back Wattson’s trust, he must open up to her about his true identity. Over the years, the surveillance expert has become used to being careful and not letting his guard down.

I thought about what you said, and you were right. You can’t trust someone you don’t know,” Crypto says to Wattson, before stumbling to reveal his real name.

Even though he is not afraid, Crypto hesitantly discloses that some people are after him. Wattson suggests that he seek protection from the Syndicate, as they want him to keep competing in the Apex Games and will keep him safe.

The person after me is part of the Syndicate,” Crypto says. He then opens up to Wattson about his life working for the Syndicate before competing in the Apex Games.

The surveillance expert explains how the Syndicate was responsible for his sister Mila’s disappearance, and they framed him for her murder. As a result, he was forced to go into hiding, and eventually, he joined the Games to clear his name.

Crypto goes on to mention that either Mila found and contacted him on Kings Canyon or it could be an impersonator. She is someone who could provide him with answers, and that will help him prove he is not guilty of the crime.

Wattson replies, “You know my father, and I worked for the Syndicate, don’t you? You know that I owe so much to them.

During the affairs of The Broken Ghost quest, Caustic falsely blamed Crypto as the mole. Wattson figured out that Crypto had so much information about every other legend, yet they barely knew anything about him. This severely impacted their growing friendship as she felt he treated her like an adversary.

But you know who I am, and you told me all of this, anyway. I don’t think Crypto would do that,” Wattson says. “So whoever you are, you’re more than just Crypto. I think I could trust you, now that I know someone in there trusts me.
