In a recent comic released by official PlayApex Twitter, Respawn might have teased the upcoming Heirloom for Loba in the next Collection Event.
Since Apex Legends is a free-to-play FPS battle royale game set in the same universe as the Titanfall franchise of video games, Respawn Entertainment opted to use the “freemium” model to monetize this game. As such, players don’t have to purchase the game to enter the lobbies.
Right now, in season 14, there are 15 Heirlooms in Apex Legends. Valkyrie was the last Legend to receive an heirloom in the Awakening Collection Event. Respawn does not follow any precise order to release Heirlooms for each Legend. As a result, knowing what surprises lie ahead always excites players.
It’s been 9 Seasons since Respawn introduced Loba. Unsurprisingly, the Apex Legends community eagerly awaited her Heirloom release in Season 14. And their waiting may come to an end as recent leaks and rumors suggest that she will be the next one to get her Heirloom this Season’s Collection Event.

Loba’s “War Fan” Heirloom
From the past Season, there have been leaks and rumors regarding Loba’s Heirloom, which is supposed to release in Season 14 Collection Event. Many prominent leakers and data miners have shared that it will be a “War Fan.”
If you’re wondering what a fan is, it is basically a Japanese hand fan modified and designed to use in warfare. Previously, it was all just rumors and speculations with no real evidence that a War Fan would actually be Loba’s Heirloom.
However, a recent Comic, “A girl’s best friend” shared by official playApex Twitter, may have proved it to be accurate.
After Revenant killed her parents and destroyed everything Loba had, she grew up as a thief to make a living. In the comic, she received a job from a widow to steal a gem from Chenosky Auction House. While looking for opportunities to steal the Gem, Loba’s eyes caught on to something she was very familiar with.
She saw her mother’s hand fan. With the help of his partner, she eventually stole both the Gem and her mother’s hand fan from the auction house. The hand fan did not seem to be in the best condition when she stole it. So, she might modify it later and make it a war fan.
However, as the Collection Event is coming up close, this Comic from Respawn seems more than just a coincidence. If the leaks and rumors are accurate, Loba mains will finally receive their Heirlooms as soon as the Collection Event goes live.
