While Season 5’s Loba might be the new kid on the block in Apex Legends, she’s dropped into battle with a critical issue that could render her Ultimate useless in your next game.

Loba is the latest addition to the ever-expanding Apex Legends lineup, having joined the roster on May 12. After a few short weeks with the Support-type character, players have uncovered a glaring issue with her Ultimate ability.

Upon deploying her ‘Black Market Boutique,’ players should be able to access nearby loot and teleport it to themselves. While the ability usually limits you to just two items, a new glitch is making sure you walk away empty-handed.

Here’s how Loba’s Ultimate should appear in each and every game.

Down to the final three squads in a May 28 game, Reddit user ‘Loch_Ness_Lemons’ was closing in on a win. With Loba’s Ultimate already open for business and the high ground secured, it seemed as though it was their match to lose.

Unfortunately, the game was working against them. The Black Market Boutique appeared to be in a glitched state, with absolutely nothing appearing. Not even a bit ammunition to let you keep up the fight.

Can someone please help explain what happened to Loba’s Ult here? Possible bug? Almost all items disappear, then many show up later. from apexlegends

They closed and reopened the menu, however, the black market inventory still remained empty. As though not a single piece of loot was in the surrounding area, the team was left with no choice but to fend for themselves.

As the ring closed in and squads appeared below, they clutched up and found a few extra eliminations. It wasn’t for another minute before Loba’s Ultimate started functioning again and loot was up for grabs.

Loba’s team was eventually able to close out the game with a win, though the glitch could have easily cost them. Had they no shields or ammo, high ground control would have only helped them survive for so long.

Loba’s Ultimate can pull loot within a 78 meter radius.

There’s no pinning down the exact cause of the issue. It could be completely random and affect Loba players without reason. 

Until an official response is provided from the developers, or a patch is rolled out, Loba may just have to make do without her Ultimate from time to time.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

Revenant was released into Apex Legends at the start of Season 4.

Impressive Revenant Heirloom concept

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
