With the conclusion of the Apex Legends Lost Treasures limited-time event, Respawn has released a new update for the battle royale game. Loba fans, rejoice! The update finally fixes the annoying problem with her tactical ability on World’s Edge.
For those who don’t main Loba, she’s had an issue with her tactical ability, Burglar’s Best Friend, on World’s Edge since the start of Lost Treasures. Loba’s tactical ability cancels out if you throw it out-of-bounds or off a ledge–which is helpful, as it prevents you from teleporting to your death. However, on World’s Edge, a bug was causing Loba’s tactical ability to detect normal areas as out-of-bounds, cancelling out Burglar’s Best Friend in places where it shouldn’t.
Game Update! We’ve pushed out two updates this morning:
🔨Fixes addressing Loba’s tactical usability on World’s Edge. There are still some known cases we’re continuing to work on but it should work much better now.
🔨Mobile Respawn Beacon has been added to all modes.

In a Twitter thread, Apex Legends design director Jason McCord explained how the bug came to be and assured players that a fix was already ready–it just needed to go through some testing first. That fix is now live, though Respawn adds that there “are still some known cases [the team is] continuing to work on.”
