Supply Bins in Apex Legends are hit and miss with the random items they hold, but Season 4 could finally implement a way to solve the problem of lackluster loot crates.

Since the launch of Respawn’s battle royale, players would be left baffled during their games after opening one of the many loot spawns just to find four straight Level 1 Body Shields or the like.

While players respect the heavy RNG factors that go into games like Apex, sometimes prioritizing Supply Bins can hurt more than help people in the game for the wide range of items they can hold.

That may be why a lot of fans are relieved to see that Respawn could be moving forward with plans for an upgraded Supply Bin – a concept many in the community have been hoping for.

In the Ranked Series 3 page under the Season 4 category on EA’s Apex Legends site there’s a screenshot of World’s Edge in which eagle-eyed players found a strange new element next to a regular box.

The loot crates that players are already accustomed to are marked by a white lid and a red back.

But there seems to be a different one with a blue lid also in that picture, something not seen in the game so far.

While some have attributed the different hue to a rendering issue, it’s not a stretch to believe Respawn could be teasing a new sort of loot crate since a regular one is sitting right next to it.

More players have caught on to the screenshot and believe that if they really are on the way, it would be a great opportunity for the devs to test out crates that exclusively hold Tier 2 loot or above.

Respawn Entertainment
Players have been wanting better Supply Bins, and Respawn might have a solution for Season 4.

Though it is interesting that the screenshot is in the Ranked Series 3 page of the site, which could mean that it’s a game element only for the Ranked playlist in the game.

In either case, this would be a strong step forward to solving the issues surrounding Supply Bins’ loot in Apex Legends and would add another layer of strategy for the looting stage of a match.

Apex Legends cosplayer drops jaws as a pistol-wielding Loba

A stylish, flirtatious, luxury thief, Loba Andrade is obviously one of cosplayers’ favorite Apex Legends characters. A fact easily justified by Diana Aleshina, who recreated the chic cat burglar’s look.

At nine years old, Loba saw her parents get murdered by a shadowy, spooky hitman. That led to her needing to fend for herself, pickpocketing a way toward luxury and, eventually, toward entry into Apex Legends as a “High Society Thief.”

Clothed in a sophisticated, all-white ensemble, with touches of gold bracelets and fingerless gloves, the fashion-forward character rocks braided red locks as comfortably as she wields her pistol and staff. 

Unsurprisingly, the entire aesthetic, down to splashes of red makeup surrounding her eyes, has been a hit with cosplayers. And Aleshina, who goes by ‘aquarelled’ on Instagram, has put her own spin on the look, while maintaining the essentials.

While some of the pieces of clothing or props might not be identical to Loba’s in-game gear, the overall sentiment rings strongly through. A white, low-cut tank top replaces the Legend’s low-cut, modified corset. An unzipped leather jacket replaces Loba’s feathered, miniature jacket. And a simple black choker replaces the luxury thief’s golden choker.

But she’s got got red eye makeup, a vibrant red braid, and appears very, very ready to make use of her brandished pistol and staff.

And although visibly obvious, aquarelled reaffirms that she shares a certain kinship with the Legend by quoting Loba in her caption: “‘I know what I like…and I know how to get it.’ It’s absolutely my character.”

Outside of cosplay, Aleshina appears less hell-bent on revenge as Loba, but equally multifaceted in her interests. Her Instagram bio maintains that she is a permanent artist, a singer, a comics girl, an anime lover, and a “bootybuilder.”

While one can’t be sure that Loba has ever had time for comics or anime, a number of those other preoccupations most certainly fit her character and, as such, it is no surprise that Aleshina had such a comfortable time recreating her look. 

As of yet, there has been no word on if the cosplayer will bring her talents to some of Loba’s unique legendary skins. But one can assume that if she sees a look that she likes, she will get it.
