Simple Apex Legends buff would improve Bangalore’s ultimate ability

A quick update to Bangalore’s ultimate in Apex Legends would improve the quality of life for Rolling Thunder while letting teams efficiently strategize around the ability.

When calling down the ordinance, missiles reign down from the sky in a rough square formation. While the blasts aren’t entirely deadly on their own, they apply a concussive slow to players and disorient anyone caught out during the storm.

Since it’s not necessarily an easy way to apply a lot of damage, Rolling Thunder is typically used to clear a path for a rotation/attack or use as a barrier in case a team needs a quick escape from a sticky situation.

Thinking of a small way to improve the ultimate, Reddit user ‘NeroIceblood’ thought to add an area of impact indicator to her map before calling down the thunder.

“Little Bangalore Buff Idea, maybe Gibby too, [that shows] the area of impact for her Ultimate when she has the throwable in her hand,” they said, showing an image of a blue square on the minimap.

The slight upgrade would help to navigate chaotic nature of Bangalore’s ult.

This would give players and teams a visual representation of the ultimate’s reach, which would make it much easier to coordinate or plan around

Having a chance to play around the missiles could open Bangalore’s potential for setting up flanks, pinches, or picks. Though a well-coordinated team in Apex can still pull off the same type of use from her, it would be much more streamlined with a small indicator.

“Why not go all the way and show the area of effect on the map for every tactical and ultimate, like in Valorant?” user ‘weakhead’ suggested, as the concept could easily be applied to other Legends for instant improvements. “Seeing on the map where your bracelet will land as Loba would be neat.”

A change like that would let players confidently play around abilities, especially for the ones that are hard to distinguish as friend or foe, like Caustic’s gas traps.

In either case, these kinds of small upgrades are meant to put that finishing polish in Apex Legends to make the battle royale that much more enjoyable to play.

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
