Apex Legends players can expect to see yet another Loba cosmetic alongside a few Legendary weapon skins in Season 5, according to leaks from a prominent data miner.

Loba’s long-awaited debut did not disappoint. After plenty of build-up from Respawn, Fortune’s Favor provided fans with a little closure after the cliff-hanger that was left from Assimilation.

And as the Apex Games’ storyline expanded, so did their cosmetic pool, as Loba launched with a plethora of skins from the get-go.

Loba’s ability set adds a fast-paced meta that players are loving during Season 5.

Leaked Loba skin

Leaks of Loba’s upcoming skins have already emerged, with the Translocating Thief receiving her own ‘Fortune’s Favor’ Pack, which offers 600 Apex Coins as well as a sharp-looking cosmetic.

But it Respawn aren’t stopping there, as another Victorian themed Loba skin has been data mined, as shown off by iLootGames.

Matching the design of the ‘Bootlegger’ Legendary skin, the ‘Watermelon’ skin (as the data miner affectionately refers to it) simply adds a fresh lick of paint to the existing cosmetic.

Leaked Weapon skins

Alongside touching on the previously leaked Bloodhound and Gibraltar Twitch Prime skins, iLootGames covered some notable weapon recolors for the Longbow, Alternator, Spitfire, Devotion and the Flatline.

Perhaps most notable is the reskin that is the pipeline for the ‘Big Game Hunter’ Longbow. Complete with the same decals, the color scheme looks very similar to the Loba skin that was also leaked.

Fans of both the Spitfire and Devotion LMGs will be pleased to see that a rework for their Legendary skins is also in the pipeline. To top things off, the leaker revealed that the ‘Spine Chiller’ Flatline skin has been reworked to match the Bootlegger Loba skin recolor.

There are already a ton of skins that have been released for Loba, as the Season 5 debutant shipped with an array of Legendary, Epic and Rare outfits.

Of course, if you’re a Twitch Prime member, you can also claim your free ‘Game Master’ Loba skin by following the simple steps in this guide.

It’s worth noting that while these leaks often materialize to be correct, they must be taken with a pinch of salt, as things can always change in development.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020: Start date, skins, Winter Express LTM

It’s almost that time of year again, and Apex Legends’ second holiday season is about to get into full swing. Holo-Day Bash is set to return for 2020, with all new skins, and a rerun of the Winter Express LTM.

To keep up with the yearly festivities, the first event of Apex Legends Season 7 will be holiday-themed – this we know thanks to some badges that have already confirmed the 2020 Holo-day bash ahead of an official announcement from Respawn.

The exact same thing happened with this year’s Fight or Fright event, for Halloween, which was also revealed early due to in-game badges that couldn’t be unlocked yet.

So, if you’re wondering when Holo-day Bash 2020 starts and ends, what kind of cosmetics will be available, and what mode to expect, here’s everything we know so far.

When is Holo-Day Bash 2020 in Apex Legends?

The Holo-Day bash will start on December 1, and run through until January 4. These dates haven’t been confirmed by Respawn yet, but reliable data-miner Shrugtal has provided the early schedule.

Badges for Holo-Day Bash 2020 are already visible in Apex Legends.

Unlike last year though, this is not a Collection event. Instead, like Fight or Fright, Holo-Day Bash 2020 is just a Themed event. That means there won’t be a new Heirloom to unlock, whereas last year,  Pathfinder’s boxing gloves could be unlocked by completing the collection.

Just because it’s not a collection event though, doesn’t mean there won’t be new skins and cosmetics to get your hands on.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop, which have already been leaked by data miners. For a complete look at all the bundles and skins, check out our full post here.

Thanks to Biast12, we can see an early showcase of all the bundles that will be dropping during the Holo-Day Bash 2020 event.

There’s also an event prize tracker, which you will be able to complete through challenges.

Winter Express LTM

Speaking of challenges, you’ll want to complete these in the “new-and-improved” Winter Express LTM.

For those who didn’t play last year, Winter Express takes place on World’s Edge, with Mirage as the game announcer. The objective is to win control of the train over three rounds. And there’s no loot – instead, Legends are given preset loadouts.

How the mode will change for 2020’s version isn’t known yet, but there’s set to be “improvements.”
