Apex Legends data miner has found a unique optical heirloom for Crypto

Data miner for the title, Human SAS has uncovered new optics for Crypto. The data files of the game suggest new optics will be very similar to HCOG sight. However, another Twitter user has revealed that this Heirloom sight might have nothing to do with it. It seems like the files may have made misplaced the word, as the optical sight could turn out to be a new type of attachment.

Safe to say that this new attachment could turn out to be a normal item. It would not make sense to receive a new heirloom as an attachment, as these prestigious items serve as skin bundles.

Fans react to data mined information of new heirlooms

The community speculates that new attachments might add new abilities, as Crypto is a tactical legend that excels at recon work. This new sight and his drone will also become an heirloom set.

One Twitter user suggested that this sight simply cannot be an heirloom for Crypto. The previous version of heirlooms has added elaborate skins, changes to character animation among various other things. This is why it does not seem feasible for Crypto to just receive an optical sight as his heirloom.

In case, new sight does come equipped with a new ability, then it should be centered around tracking opponents.

Another fan suggested that this new sight might be added as the highest-tier loot. The care packages usually bring gold and red tier weapons, which can deliver game-changing items.

These data-mined pieces of information cannot be believed at their face value. Fans should wait for an official announcement from the studio before making up their mind. By all means, Crypto could receive the next heirloom skin and this optic might change every optical attachment to the legend pick-ups.
