Loba was introduced in Season 5 earlier this week, and while her arrival has been a success, it's not without problems. As with any addition to a video games, bugs and glitches are bound to happen, and a complicated ability like a teleport would definitely be difficult to code.

Redditor The Masked Dancer showed off a situation where Loba's teleport can be glitched and not work.

As the post gained popularity and upvotes, Respawn Entertainment Developer, Deco commented on the video, and explained the reason behind the glitch. "Ah yes... "If the tactical is thrown, and then Loba herself hits a slip trigger, the tactical will fail even though it hit a valid surface. Expect it to be fixed in a future patch. I hope I'm not pulling the curtain back too much... but some of the triggers have a designated slip direction. Helpful for cliffs (we want you to slip off the cliff, not get slipstuck in a nook), or flat surfaces as mentioned!"

Respawn plans to fix this as soon as possible.
