An Apex Legends fan theory based on the in-game Loba teaser posits that a feature similar to Call of Duty: Warzone's gulag may be on its way to Respawn Entertainment's battle royale.

Respawn Entertainment confirmed Loba as the next playable character in Apex Legends on Thursday, when it released a trailer detailing her backstory. Since then, players have found an in-game teaser for Loba in which touching her bracelet — left behind in an empty vault on World's Edge — teleports one to a mysterious underground facility.

Players can only explore one area in the teaser: a long catwalk. The area's narrowness has some fans theorizing it could function the way the gulag does in Warzone, setting two players who have already died against one another and allowing the winner to return to life.

There's little to support the theory beyond the shape of the area, about which much remains mysterious. Players will likely learn more as Season 5's May 12 release date approaches.
