Crazy Apex Legends bug lets Loba teleport inside solid objects

Apex Legends players have uncovered a crazy glitch that allows Loba to teleport inside a solid object and stay inside forever – whether she wants to or not.

Loba was introduced as Apex Legends’ newest hero at the start of season five, and she has quickly made her mark on the game’s ever-changing meta. She hasn’t yet achieved the status of the most popular character, but her unique abilities have players trying to master the new legend.

One such ability, Burglar’s Best Friend, allows her to toss a set of bracelets around the map and teleport to where they land. This gives her the chance to go on flanks and reach places that some legends could only dream of. Yet, there is an issue that is allowing Loba to get stuck inside some solid objects and unable to get out.

Loba’s unique abilities set her apart from the other legends.

That might sound cool and all, being able to hide in a solid object, but as Reddit user Ed_da_head pointed out, it isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. The Redditor had attempted to throw the bracelet over one of the boxes in Sorting Factory but they game locked them inside. 

Loba was able to wriggle around inside the box and watch enemy players run away, seemingly confused about where she had gone. However, being inside the box wasn’t going to lead Ed_da_head to become the Apex champion. Instead, the game dropped them into a crushed and eliminated them from the match.

Other players pointed out that there are other spots around the two maps that Loba can actually get inside, but unlike these boxes, she can get out of those spots. That, however, is more of an exploit than an unusual glitch.

As of writing, the issue hasn’t appeared on the developer’s Trello board of problems that are being looked into, so it’s unknown if Respawn is actually aware of it or if they have a way to fix it.

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
