Apex Legends fans expect Loba to be the next playable legend in the game, and data miners have uncovered what appear to be her abilities in the game's files.

Prolific Apex Legends data miner iLootGames found four abilities he believes will belong to Loba. The abilities are as follows:

  • Burglar's Best Friend — Throw a disc and teleport to that location.
  • Supply for Demand — Hold to choose a type of loot. Reveal that type of loot in the area around you through walls.
  • Eye for Quality — Loba can see through nearby walls for loot.
  • Black Market Boutique — Place a device that can steal all nearby loot.

ILootGames believes Burglar's Best Friend would be Loba's Tactical ability because of how it maps onto previously discovered animations. Black Market Boutique would likely be her ultimate given its apparent power level.

Given the similarities between Supply for Demand and Eye for Quality, iLootGames suspects both are in testing but only one will make it to the final game.

Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment has intentionally misled data miners in the past, and has yet to confirm anything about Loba.

Data miners first found references to Loba in Apex Legends' files in Season 3. Abilities and art have cropped up periodically since, but the addition of an in-game model in a recent update significantly increased the odds of Loba becoming playable in the near future.
