Apex Legends developers have come forward to confirm a host of changes for Loba in Season 9.

Unfortunately, despite her relatively positive reception after her introduction in Season 5, Loba has spent quite a bit of time sidelined due to several bugs and glitches. These have rendered her all but worthless as the majority of them affect her teleporting bracelet and gear-stealing ultimate ability--among other things.

Now, players who enjoyed her kit before may have a chance to use her more often thanks to the reply of one Apex Legends developer.

Loba Nerf and Tweaks Confirmed for Season 9

During a live stream on Twitch, Daniel Klein, the Senior Game Designer at Respawn Entertainment, briefly gave an answer to another user regarding Loba and her plethora of issues.

In reply to thecosmicman69, Klein wrote, "sure; a shit ton of bug fixes for bracelet (won't fix everything yet) some [Quality of Life] for bracelet, and a light ult nerf."

According to a small screenshot containing a snippet of the conversation published by Dexerto, we can assume the original question was something along the lines of "Will we see any changes to Loba?" either in general or with the upcoming season.

DBLTAP cannot confirm exactly what these changes will be or when they will take effect. No further information has come to light at the time of writing. Either way, this is likely the best news Loba fans have heard since her release.
