Apex Legends Mobile is wasting no time in expanding its roster of playable characters as Season 1 is set to introduce Loba to the ten Legends already available in the game.

A popular Legend in the mainline game, Loba is the ultimate looter capable of seeing loot through walls and teleporting it to her. She also has a get-out-of-jail free card with her Tactical, Burglar’s Best Friend, which allows her to teleport away from danger.

Players can expect much more in Apex Legends Mobile Season 1 including a brand new battle pass, a new weapon, and much more. If you want to learn more, keep reading.

Apex Legends Season 1 - Release Date

Alongside Loba, a new battle pass, events, and possibly a new weapon are expected to be added to the game.

Apex Legends Season 1 - Cold Snaps Battle Pass

The theme of the season is already known thanks to a teaser trailer that has leaked. Called "Cold Snaps", the Season 1 Battle Pass boasts a series of winter-themed cosmetics like this "Ice Climber" Legend skin for Octane.

Featuring both free and paid tracks, the Battle Pass will cost 799 Apex Coins (approx. $7) and can be purchased from the in-game store. There is also a Battle Pass Plus (1599 Apex Coins) which comes with exclusive rewards and an 80% Battle Pass XP boost.

Loba Joins Apex Legends Mobile In Season 1

Loba, who came to Apex Legends in Season 5, will be going mobile. This was known, as the Diamonds In The Snow event, which runs until June 15, teased her arrival.

Loba is the ultimate loot gatherer, with two separate abilities that take the pain (and importantly time) out of looting. She arrives with the following abilities:

  • Tactical: Burglar’s Best Friend – Teleport to hard-to-reach places or escape trouble quickly by throwing your jump drive bracelet.
  • Passive: Eye for Quality – Nearby Epic and Legendary loot can be seen through walls. The range is the same as the Black Market Boutique.
  • Ultimate: 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.

She will likely prove a popular Legend and one which any trio would be happy to have on their team. Capable of helping get an entire squad outfitted with the game's best weapons and items, as well as having that all-important teleport Tactical make her a powerful force in the right hands.
