Loba has finally arrived along with Apex Legends Season 5 and players will have to have to chance to pick up an exclusive Twitch Prime skin for free, starting May 15.

It’s no surprise Loba is getting a Twitch skin, since most new Legends in Apex receive one shortly after being released.

Following some leaks around the latest Legend’s upcoming skin, Twitch unveiled Loba’s new look which will be made available for Prime users on May 15.

iLootGames initially tweeted an image of Loba’s Twitch Prime skin that he found in the game’s files shortly after the Season 5 update went live on May 12. Like most other Twitch Prime Apex skins, it’s a recolor of her base design but, as a nice change of pace, they didn’t just slap a purple recolor on it this time.

Instead, brown leather has been added on top of her outfits regular white, along with teal highlights added to her arms, waist, and the frills of her jacket. To top it all off, she has a holographic Apex Legends logo on her stomach as well.

You can claim your Loba skin from the Twitch Prime website, with a linked account (when it becomes available).

In order to get Twitch Prime, you must first sign up for Amazon Prime, which offers a 30-day free trial for the service.

You can sign up for this free trial by visiting the Apex Legends Twitch Prime page listed above and clicking the TRY PRIME button located at the top right corner of your screen if you’re not already signed up.

This will not only allow you to get the Loba skin for free, but it will also grant you all of the benefits of having Amazon Prime – including the Twitch Prime perks.

Remember, however, that if you do not wish to pay for this service, you must cancel it before the 30 days are up, otherwise, it will charge your Amazon account for the first month, so it might be wise to wait until Loba’s skin is available until you sign up.

Apex Legends dev reveals top 5 most played legends in Season 7

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
