Apex Legends players have uncovered a new use for Bloodhound’s Beast of the Hunt ultimate ability that allows them to scout out the tier of a potential shield pick up.

While Fortnite has it’s building and PUBG has incredibly realistic shooting, the one thing that sets Apex Legends apart from its battle royale counter-parts is the different Legends.

There is a character that, pretty much, suits every different playstyle. What to play defensively and take your time? Choose Mirage. Want to get right into the action and battle foes quickly? Pick Wraith. However, one legend that started off pretty popular and slipped down the ranks is Bloodhound. Yet, the recon legend could get a revival after a new use for its ultimate was uncovered.

Bloodhound was once one of the most-played characters in Apex Legends.

In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, user th3professional pointed out that the Beast of the Hunt ultimate ability lets players see what level of armor is around them by showing off the respective color level. 

With normal settings, some colors are more distinctive than others and its easier to make out blues and purples than white and gold. However, with the tritanopia color-blind settings enabled, everything becomes a little easier to see – but your red holographic sights will now become yellow. 

Haven’t seen this anywhere on the sub yet, but Bloodhound can now see shield colors in their ultimate! from apexlegends

While using the different settings may very well give some players a slight advantage, others had different ideas for a way to help Bloodhound become a more powerful legend.

“Would be cool if he could tell the shield color with his ultimate on enemy players,” commented one Redditor. Another, JustAPotato2001, added: “Instead of the Gibby buff, this could have been a potential buff to Bloodhound.”

Of course, any future changes have to come from Respawn themselves and only come once everything from balancing to potential glitches are taken into account.

Who knows though, we could see a more powerful Bloodhound in the future. For now, at least, there are slight additions to the Legend’s ultimate and that’s what we’ve got to work with.

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.
