Apex Legends players who don’t want to find themselves being flanked by Loba in season five might want to consider which legend they use as one can easily counter her bracelet teleport ability, otherwise known as Burglar’s Best Friend. 

Though Loba hasn’t become a standout star legend like Wraith or Mirage, the Translocating Thief can regularly be spotted on both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge. Her abilities make it so that she can flank you with ease and then steal any type of loot in the area.

There are, of course, ways to counter her – every legend has someone that they don’t want to run into. If you’re looking for the answer to stopping her teleport brace so that she can’t get away from you, or get behind you, well there is one legend that you’re going to need to use.

Loba’s bracelet is small, but its potential is huge.

As players have pointed out, Wattson’s ultimate ability – the Interception Pylon – can be used to snag Loba’s Burglar’s Best Friend bracelet out of the sky, like it would a normal grenade. 

By throwing the ability in the region of the Interception Pylon, Loba will see the countdown bar to make the leap continue to countdown before the bracelet goes flying back to her wrist. This means that you won’t lose a charge on the ability, but, you will have to reconsider what your plan of action is.

Now, if you’re a Loba main who has fear struck into them by the thought of being countered by Wattson, you might not actually have to worry. The Static Defender only had a 5.52% usage rate in May according to stats from DreamTeam.gg.

That pick rate is the fourth-worst on the roster of legends, so you might not run into her all that often anyway. As Apex Legends season five continues to progress, players might find other counters to Loba’s bracelet, and, who knows, we might even see someone shoot it out of the sky for once.

Apex Legends devs have rolled out fixes for frustrating Season 7 bugs that makes players face an infinite loading screen and a separate glitch causing Rampart’s turret not to stick to the Trident.

Treasure packs returned to Apex for Season 7, as a way to keep the battle pass interesting and give players something to come back and search for every single day, if you don’t get trapped, that is.

The packs have become a significant part of Apex matches since players don’t want to miss one and fall behind on completing the set and miss out on some cosmetics.

For some though, the packs have caused major issues during Season 7 though, as a bug would randomly lock them in a loading screen.

Treasure Packs were introduced in Apex Legends season 6, and now they’ve caused quite the headache.

That wasn’t all throwing players off. Rampart mains also found that, while it was advertised in the Season 7 trailer, the legend’s turret wouldn’t always stick to the new Trident vehicles.

Both of these bugs have definitely been getting under players’ skin, but the good news is Respawn have rolled out a fix for both issues that will hopefully put an end to the incoveniences.

“As an FYI, we’ve deployed a small patch to re-enable the ability to place Rampart’s turret on the Trident as well as provide a fix for players who are getting stuck on certain menu pages,” Apex wrote on Twitter on Dec. 1.

This means that once you log in following the update, treasure packs should no longer get you caught in a loop, and Rampart can once again fire Sheila atop the Trident.

Previous reports claimed that another update had been rolled out to try and fix the treasure pack glitch already, but if you’ve been on Apex’s Reddit recently you’ll see still numerous posts of people still encountering it, and a similar issue with getting stuck on the main loading screen as well.

Despite a few bumps like this along the way, Season 7 has generally been well-received by the Apex community, so hopefully, this patch takes care of these issues for good and let us get back to playing.
