Apex Legends has revealed the abilities and kit that Loba will be working with as she charges her way into Season 5 and everything that comes with it.

Season 5 of Apex is set to begin on May 12, and as players gear up to hop in and enjoy all of the new content, Respawn has given us the lowdown on the newest legend Loba and all of her abilities.

Up until this latest info, we didn’t really have a solid idea of what her unique abilities would be, outside of what we saw in the Season 5 Gameplay Trailer.

We can’t wait to jump into Season 5 and try Loba out.

Loba’s Tactical and Passive abilities

“Burglar’s Best Friend” is the name of Loba’s Tactical ability and it allows her to teleport to tricky places or escape a fight quickly using her bracelet.

This ability seems to work very similarly to Sombra’s Translocator in Overwatch – you throw the bracelet out, and you can teleport with Loba to wherever it lands.

Her passive is called “Eye for Quality,” which reveals epic and legendary loot through walls, within a certain distance. Allowing you to only pick up the finest in weapons and gear.

Loba’s Ultimate Ability

Eye for Quality works basically in tandem with her “Black Market Boutique” ultimate, which turns her staff into a device that teleports nearby loot into your inventory.

Each friendly (or enemy) legend can take up to two items from the ability, which makes it a good way to kit out your squad if you’re the first in an unlooted area.

It will be interesting to see how players use Loba’s abilities to outmaneuver each other, and maybe even steal items out from under their enemies noses.

However Loba’s kit ends up fitting into the Apex Legends meta, that doesn’t change the fact we can’t wait to try her and her abilities out when Season 5 starts on May 12.

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends was an overnight sensation and it’s barely slowed down. In its two years of success, there’s been map changes galore, new legends joining the fight, and an ever-evolving meta – but we’re here to test your knowledge with a quiz.

Kings Canyon was the original map we all dropped into on that fine day of February 4, 2019. Fast forward 24 months, Apex Legends is still one of the most popular battle royale’s – but a lot has changed.

As we approach Season 8, there’s 15 characters to play with, two maps to drop into, and a weapons list containing 24 different guns. On top of that, each seasonal update has delivered different tweaks to gameplay and snippets of Legend lore for various fighters – which means the scope for our quiz questions is quite broad.

By now, you will have been named Champions of the Arena on numerous occasions. But, do you have what it takes to get a perfect score on our ultimate Apex Legends quiz?

Take our Apex Legends quiz!

Your test score will determine just how well you know the Outlands in the Apex world.

The world, of course, is connected to that of the Titanfall series, which was also developed by Respawn Entertainment. Many weapons and features have crossed over between planets, presumably with even more of that to come in the future.

Fuse can launch explosives from his mechanical arm. He’s coming in Season 8.

Fuse is the latest to join Apex Legends as a playable character, with a new 30-30 Repeater rifle being added too. For more details on that, check out some of the stories we’ve covered for the game’s next major update:

Don’t be too downhearted if you don’t receive a perfect score this time, but if you are named a Champion, be sure to tweet us @TitanfallBlog on Twitter.
