Apex Legends players think Loba has an artifact from Titanfall 2

Loba can be seen stealing something in the Story from the Outlands ‘Legacy of a Thief’ Season 5 teaser, and the Apex Legends community are using clues from Titanfall 2 to figure out what the device can be.

As her lore video reveals, she was the best thief around, and was famous for being able to acquire anything she wanted. Making it no surprise that the upcoming Apex Legends character is shown in a heavily guarded vault.

But it’s how she makes her escape that has people scratching their heads as to what allowed her to get out of the sticky situation scot-free.

Redditor ‘el3ctric-runner’ pointed out the similarities between the stolen device Loba will presumably use for her abilities at 0:47 in the video and the Time Gauntlet that was featured in Titanfall 2.

“I don’t think anyone else noticed this but the device Loba has looks alot like the time travel device from Titanfall 2,” they said.

Players got to experience the device in action on the ‘Effect and Cause’ mission while running through the IMC facility.

The similarities between both devices are striking, and it isn’t out of the realm of possibilities that an updated device was created in the 30-year gap between the events of Titanfall 2 when the IMC was taken down and Apex Legends.

But we know that this isn’t exactly the same technology as Wraith’s interdimensional shifts into the Void. Respawn Entertainment writer Tom Casiello said that “we are not going into the Void … the Void is safe for Wraith” when addressing Loba’s teleportation.

Moreover, the developers have already shown their willingness to dip into resources that were meant for Titanfall just to give them new life in Apex Legends.

The Titanfall 2 device and the Apex Legends device look awfully similar.

No spoilers: considering the fate of the device in Titanfall 2, it seems unlikely that the Time Gauntlet would feature in the battle royale. Furthermore, the Time Gauntlet is an object that deals with time-travel instead of phasing, so they could have shared the same tech trees in R&D but are distinct technologies in the TTF universe.

With Season 5 of Apex Legends just around the corner, answers for the game’s many mysteries are bound to come as well as – knowing Respawn – new questions for the community to speculate on.

The newest teaser for Apex Legends Season 7 has gone live, with the previously leaked ‘UFO’ finally showing up on Kings Canyon. 

With Apex Legends gearing up for its seventh season, players have been eager for the devs – Respawn Entertainment – to start revealing some key details about what’s being lined up. However, Respawn has remained pretty silent on it, only hinting at what legends are being buffed.

In the meantime, leakers and players have been digging into files and picking out details from previous dev streams to try and find answers – with one of the biggest questions surrounding the mysterious UFO that has been spotted previously. 

The huge, metallic UFO was seen floating off the Broken Coast in a dev stream, before leakers were able to find it hanging high above Skyhook only a few weeks later. Now, though, it’s finally in-game.

The new teaser went live at 11 am EST/4 pm BST on October 23, with the previously leaked UFO showing up and lingering off the coast of Kings Canyon behind Airbase. 

Sadly, while some players assumed that it might be interactable and have some clues on board, you can’t actually reach the UFO at the time of writing.

Instead, as already noted, it’s just sat off the coast of Kings Canyon and floating in the sky – looming large and looking like it could be gearing up to get closer and closer over the next few days. 

However, it’s not all bad news. As reliable leaker Shrugtal pointed out, the new look UFO actually has actually been seen before.

The balloons actually appeared in the Loba teasers showing off, you guessed it, what appears to be Olympus.

Of course, in the past, many of these teasers have held key clues regarding new seasons and new legends, but we’ll just have to wait and see if we can get up close and personal with it.

If there are further teasers ahead of Season 7, you’ll be able to find the latest news and updates here on Dexerto as we’ll keep this article updated.
