Simple Apex Legends Loba buff idea would make her ultimate more useful

Apex Legends players have got a pretty perfect buff idea for Loba that centers around her Black Market Boutique ultimate and being able to help teammates even more.

Since being introduced during Apex Legends Season 5, Loba has become a mainstay in the battle royale thanks to her unique abilities. 

The Translocating Thief is able to get around the map easily thanks to her bracelet, and she can scoop up some serious loot without even needing to fight enemies thanks to both her passive and ultimate. 

While her Black Market Boutique ultimate is already pretty powerful, some players have got ideas about making the ability even better by being able to give teammates an even bigger helping hand than it already does.

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

The concept was floated by Reddit user Lord_Despairagus, who suggested that Loba’s Ultimate should be on the same level as Crypto when it comes to grabbing teammate’s banners. 

That’s right, their idea is would allow Loba to drop her Black Market Boutique, and aside from grabbing ammo, weapons, and health kits, she could pick up a teammates banner – provided it close enough by, of course. 

Given that Loba and her teammates can only loot two items each through the Ultimate, it could become an interesting balancing act between grabbing a banner and hoping there’s a beacon nearby or ignoring the banner and keeping yourself alive with Syringes and Shield Cells.

It’d be a cool buff for Loba if she could grab her teammate’s Respawn Beacon with her Black Market from apexlegends

If the buff was in place, and luck was on your side, you could use your two loot picks to get a banner and a mobile respawn beacon, which would get your teammates back into the fight in the blink of an eye.

Though, at the end of the day, Legend changes come from Respawn so they’d have to sign off on it. Given that they’ve said previously that they can’t exactly copy fan ideas, it’s unlucky we’ll see Loba with this buff anytime soon, but it would be pretty interesting.

Apex Legends hints at removing World’s Edge in Season 7

Apex Legends players are patiently waiting for Season 7 to begin and explore all the new content coming with it, but fans of World’s Edge will have to be patient to go back to Talos.

The map was added to Apex during Season 3 all the way back in October 2019 and was the second map in the game after King’s Canyon.

While it certainly mixed up the battle royale, it seems like World’s Edge will be on the way out when Season 7 gets going on November 4, 2020, based on what we’ve seen from Respawn.

In a tweet on Oct. 27, the official Apex Legends account hinted that “with World’s Edge on the verge of collapse, the Apex Games need to find a new home.”

It doesn’t take a genius to pick up on what Respawn is putting down here, as it seems the map will be removed from the game, at least for a while, with the start of Season 7.

This wouldn’t be without precedent either. Back in Season 3 when World’s Edge was first introduced King’s Canyon, the game’s original map from the release was removed until it returned in April of 2020.

With Ranked being broken into two splits for the new Season, Respawn plans to introduce players to Olympus, the new home of the Apex Games, before sending players back to WE later in the Ascension update.

In fact, Kings Canyon is already going to be completely nixed from Apex Legends’ ranked playlist in Season 7.

It seems likely that the Legends will board the giant rocket that appeared recently on World’s Edge and set off somewhere new to battle it out for the top spot.

As for what will happen to the train and everything else, there was a black hole showcased in Horizon’s Stories from the Outlands video, that certainly seems like it would be able to swallow the entire map, and even the planet it’s located on.
