An Apex Legends streamer found a brilliant way to recharge their depleted armor, after a close call led to a brilliant highlight that used a bit of trickery to pull off.

Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale reinvigorated the genre when it released on February 4, and since then. the community has been mastering all of the obscure mechanics within the game to get the better of their competition.

With that in mind, players have been finding shortcuts around the more time-consuming elements, and Reddit user ‘Roonerth’ might have found the most deceptive method of using an enemy to replenish their armor.

In a Reddit post, the streamer can be seen in an intense face off against a persistent Bloodhound, who brought his Epic Body Shield almost all the way down.

Thinking on his feet, Roonerth saw a lowly Common Body Shield in a nearby structure and instantly swapped out the armor. But instead of chasing after the Bloodhound, he paused a moment to wait for the enemy to take the bait.

Seeing a purple shield just laying there, the Bloodhound instantly swapped to it but was quickly met with a foot to the face as Roonerth finished off the kill.

After collecting the kill, Roonerth went back to purple armor which was now in the Bloodhound’s death box but the Epic Body Shield was now at full health.

How did the Body Shield go back to full health?

Players were obviously confused at what they had just witnessed since the Body Shield seemed to heal itself.

But Roonerth provided a simple explanation that put to bed any surrounding questions about the in-game mechanic.

“There are really only two scenarios where armor will ‘regenerate’ without the wearer using shield cells, batteries, or pheonix kits to fill them,” Roonerth said. “First, when the wearer dies, the armor they were wearing is fully healed in their deathbox. Second, legendary armor allows the wearer to use a finisher on a downed enemy, which will heal the user’s shields to full…”

While its a very situational trick, Roonerth showed that giving opponent’s high tier loot can sometimes be advantageous if pulled off correctly.

A stylish, flirtatious, luxury thief, Loba Andrade is obviously one of cosplayers’ favorite Apex Legends characters. A fact easily justified by Diana Aleshina, who recreated the chic cat burglar’s look.

At nine years old, Loba saw her parents get murdered by a shadowy, spooky hitman. That led to her needing to fend for herself, pickpocketing a way toward luxury and, eventually, toward entry into Apex Legends as a “High Society Thief.”

Clothed in a sophisticated, all-white ensemble, with touches of gold bracelets and fingerless gloves, the fashion-forward character rocks braided red locks as comfortably as she wields her pistol and staff. 

Unsurprisingly, the entire aesthetic, down to splashes of red makeup surrounding her eyes, has been a hit with cosplayers. And Aleshina, who goes by ‘aquarelled’ on Instagram, has put her own spin on the look, while maintaining the essentials.

While some of the pieces of clothing or props might not be identical to Loba’s in-game gear, the overall sentiment rings strongly through. A white, low-cut tank top replaces the Legend’s low-cut, modified corset. An unzipped leather jacket replaces Loba’s feathered, miniature jacket. And a simple black choker replaces the luxury thief’s golden choker.

But she’s got got red eye makeup, a vibrant red braid, and appears very, very ready to make use of her brandished pistol and staff.

And although visibly obvious, aquarelled reaffirms that she shares a certain kinship with the Legend by quoting Loba in her caption: “‘I know what I like…and I know how to get it.’ It’s absolutely my character.”

Outside of cosplay, Aleshina appears less hell-bent on revenge as Loba, but equally multifaceted in her interests. Her Instagram bio maintains that she is a permanent artist, a singer, a comics girl, an anime lover, and a “bootybuilder.”

While one can’t be sure that Loba has ever had time for comics or anime, a number of those other preoccupations most certainly fit her character and, as such, it is no surprise that Aleshina had such a comfortable time recreating her look. 

As of yet, there has been no word on if the cosplayer will bring her talents to some of Loba’s unique legendary skins. But one can assume that if she sees a look that she likes, she will get it.
