Apex Legends launched early last year and it’s hard to imagine that we’re already in Season 5. If you haven’t heard of Apex Legends than congratulations you might be the last person on Earth to not know about this game. But if you’ve been looking for hardcore co-op games then look no further than EA and Respawn Entertainment’s free to play online multiplayer battle royale. We have a handy dandy beginner’s guide for your newbies too.
Season 5 of Apex Legends, entitled ‘Fortune’s Favour’ launched today with a brand new character: Loba Andrade. A high society thief, Loba lost her family to Revenant when she was a little girl. Left with nothing, Loba survived by picking pockets. When she eventually broke into the right place and got her hands on the Jump Drive tech. Nothing has been out of her reach since then. Loba was first announced in April but EA has only revealed her abilities today. So before we do a deeper dive into utilising her check out her gameplay trailer here.
Tactical Ability – Burglar’s Best Friend
If you’re looking for enchanced mobility out of your legend than you’ll enjoy Loba’s use of her Jump Drive bracelet. Simply throw your bracelet out to teleport in a blink of an eye. Use it to get the jump on an enemy or back out of precarious situations.
Passive Ability – Eye For Quality
Loba’s passive ability allows her to spot nearby epic and legendary loot through walls. In a game where the loot you get could make or break your team, this could come in quite useful indeed. Spot what’s in hot drops and gain the much needed edge in this free for all.
Ultimate Ability – Black Market Boutique
Her ultimate ability drops a portable device that allows her to teleport nearby loot directly into your inventory. Each friendly or enemy Legend can take up to two items. This plays very well with Loba’s passive ability and with her as the support she can instantly bulk up your team with her thieving prowess.
We’re looking forward to checking out this particular Legend. Mainly because I hate looting. If you want to check out her official EA page find out all about her here.
