Loba's Jump Drive is having issues in Apex Legends Season 8. Designed to be the ultimate looter for the squad, her passive and ultimate are working perfectly fine. Unfortunately, her Jump Drive tactical ability is encountering spots on Obliterated Kings Canyon where players are unable to teleport.

While Loba hasn't joined the ranks of the meta-Legends yet, there are plenty of great qualities about her that make her a huge asset to any squad. Her passive ability allows her to see Epic and Legendary items outlined in closed loot bins, and her Black Market Boutique ultimate allows any player, not just teammates, to select up to two items within a small radius indicated on the mini map. This excludes ammo, which players can grab all of within the area of the ultimate.

Respawn has had to work on Loba's tactical ability on more than one occasion. Since her release in Season 5, players have found locations on different maps, such as World's Edge and Olympus, where her Jump Drive seems to malfunction. One player Tweeted at Respawn a clip of the glitch occurring, and it was so convincing that his teammates thought it was purposefully done.

The clip got the attention of Design Director at Respawn Jason McCord. While McCord mentions he'll send it to the right peeps, there is no clear indication for when Loba players can finally enjoy playing as her without issue. This issue, coupled with an long animation to enter in and out of the tactical when it works properly, are the major issues holding her full potential back in Apex Legends.
