Hi you! We are vinagaming and this guide is about Loba in Apex Legends Season 12. Learn about Loba’s Abilities, gameplay, voice lines, skins & lore.
Loba is a Support Legend specializing in getting the highest quality loot. Her tactical ability Burglar’s Best Friend allows her to throw a bracelet that teleports her to wherever it lands.
|Burglar’s Best Friend||Teleport to hard-to-reach places or escape trouble quickly by throwing your jump drive bracelet.||The bracelet’s distance can be extended by bouncing it off a Launch Pad. This does not work if you are too close to the pad; you’ll just teleport right on top of it.|
Silence can cancel the teleport while the bracelet is in midair.
The bracelet can hit a Surveillance Drone and teleport you to it, even though the drone is not solid ground.
Wraith’s Dimensional Rift will cancel the bracelet’s effect if it’s in midair and the portal is taken at the same time.
It will not go inside a Gibraltar’s Dome of Protection but will instead bounce off the dome.
|Eye for Quality||Nearby epic and legendary loot can be seen through walls. The range is the same as Black Market Boutique.||Sometimes, Loba can’t see contents in an unopened Care Package even though it’s within her range.|
|Black Market Boutique||Place a portable device that allows you to teleport nearby loot to your inventory. Each friendly or enemy Legend can take up to two items.||Ultimate Accelerants only charge 20% for the Black Market Boutique, as opposed to the normal 35%.|
When multiple copies of the same item are available, taking one will pull the farthest one from the Black Market.
It cannot loot the contents of randomized loot sources like Loot Ticks, Cargo Bots, or Loot MRVNs.
Supply Bins and Care Packages can be looted from even when closed, and open automatically when an item is looted from them.
Deathboxes from Flyers must be dropped before they can be looted.
Loba herself can take one item from locked Vaults, Bloodhound’s Trials compartments and Vend-it Machines on World’s Edge, locked Caustic Treatment compartments on Kings Canyon, and the locked Icarus Bridge on Olympus. Items that can be looted this way will show a lock icon on the right side of the item button and will ask for your confirmation before looting that item. Doing this immediately destroys the Black Market and sounds a loud alarm from the room that can be heard at a distance.
The Black Market will be immediately destroyed regardless of how many items were taken from it beforehand.
The destruction of the Black Market this way also does a small amount of damage to Loba, and if health is low enough, can knock her down.
Because it will always try to pull a full inventory stack, Wattson can take two Ultimate Accelerants while only using one slot. Fuse can do the same with grenades.
Pathfinder’s Grappling Hook can attach to the Black Market.

|Burglar’s Best Friend||Note that if you throw from standstill or walk, you cannot run; but if thrown while running, you will keep running and can slide.|
There is a brief animation that plays after you get teleported before you can use your weapon, plan accordingly.
Teleport behind an enemy to attack them by surprise.
Use the ability again while the bracelet is mid air to force it down behind cover, or other advantageous positions.
Don’t forget that you can throw the bracelet through windows and small gaps in walls.
The bracelet’s sound effects are very loud and its trail is visible to everyone so enemies can be notified that you’re nearby, so be cautious when using.
Climbing will cancel the animation of the bracelet. Used at the right time, this can save you a second.
|Eye for Quality||Use this passive ability to inform your squadmates about the location of loot in the area.|
If you see an item disappear you can use this information to know that enemies are in the area.
|Black Market Boutique||Due to its range being cylindical instead of spherical, place it in place with cover instead of places that are exposed.|
The Black Market, in effect, function as a loot radar. As such, placing it well and frequent will helps make your teammate loot less by showing what is (and is not) available; even if their desired loot is available, they may no longer have the need to deviate from the team.
Give your squadmates time to loot before retrieving the Black Market Boutique.If your squadmates need a certain type of loot and you don’t need anything, you can take the item(s) for them and drop them.
An alternative way of considering the black market is that it allows your teammates to grab what they need from safe places. For example, given that your team is bunkering in a building, with fights all over, and a bunch of death box nearby; the black market allows teammates to acquire necessary resources to continue the fight, instead of having teammate go into dangerous area to grab what they need.
When being used, items in the Black Market’s range float off the ground. Be wary of enemies using this information against you.
When Loba was nine, she looked on as simulacrum hitman Revenant killed her parents. Left with nothing, Loba was given to a foster family. But like her mother and father, she quickly found out she was good at being a thief. She started with picking pockets and as her skills improved, Loba used every tool at her disposal to lift herself from the gutter. Everything changed when she broke into a supposedly impenetrable facility and got her hands on the Jump Drive tech stored inside. With her new teleportation bracelet, the most secure and unattainable items were within her reach. So was her dream of living the high life.
