Respawn Entertainment have announced the next event in Apex Legends: the Battle Armor limited-time mode that will offer a twist on body shields every few days.

With Season 4 slowly starting to end in Apex Legends, developers Respawn Entertainment have planned one last hoorah before they flip the page to Season 5.

Starting on Tuesday, April 28, this new Battle Armor Event, which takes place on the World’s Edge map, is a 14-day LTM that will rotate the different types of body shields available in the game.

Respawn EntertainmentThe Battle Armor Event will put a twist on body shields in Apex Legends.

The way it will work is that during each rotation, only one type of armor will be available, and players will already have it equipped when they drop into the match, along with a P2020 pistol.

The catch is that all of the body shields will be removed from the loot pool; everything else, including shield cells, batteries, and all other types of loot will still be available except for armor.

Here is the rotation schedule for this LTM:

  • Tuesday, April 28 @ 10am PDT  – Saturday, May 2nd @ 10am PDT: Level 1 (White) armor only.
  • Saturday, May 2 @ 10:01 am PDT – Wednesday, May 6 @ 10am PDT: Level 2 (Blue) armor
  • Wednesday, May 6 @ 10:01am PDT – Saturday, May 9 @ 10am PDT: Level 3 (Purple) armor.
  • Saturday, May 9 @ 10:01 am PDT – Tuesday, May 12th @ 10am PDT: Evo Armor
Respawn EntertainmentEvo Armor – the newest type of body shield in Apex Legends, will make up the final rotation of the Battle Armor Event.

“Throughout the last year, we’ve heard many fun ideas from our fans about different ways to play Apex Legends,” said Jason McCord, Design Director of Apex Legends. “One of my favorites has been suggested countless times, and even more so when we introduced the Evo Shields in The System Override Event.”

McCord offered a piece of advice for that fourth and final rotation, the one with Evo Armor, saying that players should try and get aggressive early so they don’t fall behind upgrading their shield: “And if you want a pro-tip from me: get in fights early, or you’ll be left limping into the final circle with Level 1 armor!”

On top of all that, everyone who manages a top-five finish “across all modes during this phase” will receive additional double Level XP.

Respawn EntertainmentThe only type of body shield not featured in the Battle Armor Event is the Legendary gold version.

The Design Director also revealed that this Body Armor Event is the first stage of experimentation on the developers’ part with the core gameplay of Apex Legends, and that similar LTMs with twists will be released in Season 5.

Speaking of which, Respawn have also delayed Season 5 by an extra week in order to not only accommodate this event, but to also give players a chance to rank up their Battle Pass even higher. The new season will kick off on Tuesday, May 12.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
