Apex Legends Season 5: Fortune’s Favor Launch Trailer

Earlier, Loba’s reveal trailer, ‘Legacy of a Thief,’ briefly highlighted her journey from an orphan to the most infamous thief in the Outlands. Today’s release of the full launch trailer for Apex Legends Season 5 shows Loba Andrade in full-fledged action.

Loba, the daughter of Marcos Andrade, witnessed her parents’ death at the hands of the Simulacrum robot, Revenant. Since then, she’s out for revenge. With the help of her blue-haired yet-unnamed friend (shown in the reveal trailer), Loba eventually tracked down Revenant. Using her translocating skills, she teleports into an underground robotics lab in Kings Canyon.

However, in her failed attempt to destroy Revenant’s preserved conscious head, a horde of Hammond robots awaken to the security breach. Loba uses her unique abilities to fend off the robots. But, in the process, she causes havoc, destroys the lab, and also a significant area of Kings Canyon.

She emerges back in another location in Kings Canyon using her teleportation technology, where she meets her nemesis. “Come to kill me, little girl?” asks the Simulacrum robot. Loba responds, “Someday. But for now-“ and shoots Revenant.

What are some of Loba’s special abilities?
