Season 5: Fortune’s Favor adds Loba as a new character to Apex Legends. The teleporting thief is an item-stealing powerhouse. Let’s see some tricks you may not know about.
Season 5: Fortune’s Favor adds playable character Loba to Apex Legends. The teleporting thief offers a new support option to Respawn’s battle royale game. Instead of keeping her allies alive, like fellow support character Lifeline, Loba assists her squad with finding and securing the best loot.
Max Blumenthal and Jordan Ramée told us about Loba and her abilities. Also, they shared how to best use them to benefit. Loba’s passive ability allows her to see and ping epic and legendary loot through walls. Her tactical ability lets her teleport, and her ultimate ability gives her squad the chance to loot an entire area from one location.
After testing her abilities and synergy with other characters, both Max and Jordan agree that she’s a well-balanced character for Apex Legends. Though a powerful addition to the battle royale game, Loba isn’t overpowered. She has a slow tactical ability and limit on how much she can steal with her ultimate ability. Apex Legends has too many of those already.
Although, Loba isn’t the only new addition to Apex Legends in Season 5. The new season makes several major map changes to Kings Canyon, implements a new battle pass, and adds a new story-focused PvE mode, Quests.
