Apex Legends Lost Treasures update makes Loba’s teleport useless

Apex Legends players are still running into a strange bug with Loba’s Burglar’s Best Friend ability that is preventing them from teleporting across the map with a throw of her bracelet, and it seems to have only gotten worse with the Lost Treasure update. 

After plenty of hype and speculation, Loba was introduced to Apex Legends with the start of season five – Fortune’s Favor. The Translocating Thief is pretty difficult to the current crop of characters given that she can teleport across the map and steal loot from considerable distances away

Now, while many may have been expecting her to shake up the meta and become a much-used character, up to now, that hasn’t happened. Though, it might just be because of bugs with her abilities – most notably, the teleport.

Burglar’s Best Friend, otherwise just known as Loba’s bracelet, allows the player to toss the bracelet out and quickly teleport towards it – be it because they want to fight or escape a firefight.

Though, as Reddit user KingDududu pointed out, there have been further problems following the Lost Treasures Collection Event update. According to them, the bracelet won’t work as intended on World’s Edge. As she can’t teleport anywhere, this bug is leaving Loba pretty stranded and somewhat useless when it comes to games.

However, it isn’t just a one-time problem. Other players have encountered the same issue on both World’s Edge and Kings Canyon as the bracelet just returns back to Loba’s wrist without conducting a teleport. 

One Redditor noted that this has happened to them “several times.” Another commenter, 1xSCZ, added: that “she can’t teleport consistently anymore after the Lost Treasure update.”

Prior to the launch of Lost Treasures, Loba’s teleport could be countered with Wattson’s Interception Pylon, but that is no longer the case – so that doesn’t explain the issue. 

We’ll just have to wait and see as to whether or not Respawn address it. As of writing, the problem hasn’t been jotted down on their Trello board of bugs, so it’s unknown if the devs are aware of it or not.

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
