Strange Loba Ultimate bug completely crashes Apex Legends games

Apex Legends players have run into an alarming issue where their games crash if they try and grab the same item as their teammate from Loba’s Ultimate ability.

Loba joined the Apex Legends cast of characters at the start of season five, making a name for herself as an annoying enemy to play against. She hasn’t quite made waves and become as popular as Wraith or Pathfinder, however.

This might be, in part, due to the number of bugs that have cropped up in games. Recently, following the Lost Treasures update, players have noted that her Burglar’s Best Friend teleport has become pretty useless.

Yet, there’s a new problem rearing its head as players have been crashing out of games while using her Black Market Boutique ultimate.

Loba was added to Apex Legends as the new character for season five.

The new problem was pointed out by Reddit user 3KeyReasons, who warned players against trying to grab the same item as their teammates from the ultimate ability. 

As the Redditor showed in their video, both they and their teammate tried to get their hands on a purple backpack at the same time. Though, as they were confirming the item they wanted, the game came to a crashing halt.

They were sent back to the main loading screen and greeted with an error code that they said the given object was “not an entity” and that was null.

Don’t grab anything from the Loba-ltimate at the same time as your teammate…. from apexlegends

3KeyReasons noted that they’d reported the bug to EA and Respawn as other players chimed in to say that the same thing had happened to them as well. 

Obviously, thanks to the new reconnect feature, you can nack into the game if your teammates stay alive, but that’s a tall order if they’re doing alone. However, despite the bug being flagged, it hasn’t yet appeared on Respawn’s Trello board of issues so we’ll just have to wait and see if they address it any time soon.

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

Apparently, the new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump in to the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem. It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
