Abilities[ | ]

Burglar's Best Friend[ | ]

Burglar's Best Friend Tactical Q/LB/L1/LB
Burglar's Best Friend
Description Teleport to hard-to-reach places or escape trouble quickly by throwing your jump drive bracelet.
Cooldown 30 seconds

  • Throws Loba's bracelet and teleports her to it when it lands.
  • While the bracelet is in midair, you can force it to drop straight down.
  • The max distance that the bracelet can be thrown varies based on the following:
    • 71 meters if you're on normal ground levels which is the standard distance.
    • 100+ meters if you're on high ground places such as towers or buildings, maxing out the distance.
  • While the bracelet is midair, it cannot be canceled (excludes other Legends abilities that can cancel the bracelet), and Loba cannot perform most other actions, like using weapons or healing items.
  • If the bracelet is thrown off the edge of the map, or into an out-of-bounds area, it'll return to Loba without starting the cooldown.
  • Can be used while on ziplines.
  • The bracelet can be thrown more quickly if the Quick Getaway Perk is equipped.

  • The bracelet's distance can be extended by bouncing it off a Launch Pad Launch Pad. This does not work if you are too close to the pad; you'll just teleport right on top of it.
  • Wraith's Dimensional Rift 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 Dome of Protection but will instead bounce off the dome.

  • 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[ | ]

Eye for Quality Passive
Eye for Quality
Description Nearby epic and legendary loot can be seen through walls. The range is the same as Black Market Boutique Black Market Boutique.

  • Range is 112.5 meters.
  • Can ping items through obstacles, inside supply bins, and even Care Packages.
    • Ping range is 12 meters; optics can extend the range.
  • Loot ticks and Death Boxes cannot be seen through obstacles even if they contain Epic or Legendary loot.
  • If the Heiress Perk is equipped, Loba can see Death Boxes containing epic and Legendary loot.
  • If the Burglar's Intuition Perk is equipped, Loba can see enemies that have picked up epic and Legendary loot within 70m. This effect has a 20s cooldown.

  • 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[ | ]

Black Market Boutique Ultimate Z/LB+RB/L1+R1/LB+RB
Black Market Boutique
Description 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.
Charge time 2 minutes

  • Loba starts every match with her ultimate 50% charged.
  • After placing down the Black Market Boutique, it takes about 4.5 seconds before it can be accessed.
    • When it finishes setting up, it releases a large pulse that enemies can see.
  • After setup, any player can hold down E/X/Square to interact with it, opening a menu similar to accessing Death Boxes from which each player can take up to two items.
    • The range of the Black Market is a 112.5-meter radius cylinder (unlimited vertical) visible to Loba and her squad on the minimap.
    • Items within the range will hover off the ground slightly when a player is using it.
    • There is a glimpse of a teleport trail back to the Black Market each time a player takes an item from it.
    • Full stacks of Ammo and Health Kits will be taken when selected.
    • Ammo has no maximum limit and does not take up space towards the two items' allowed limit.
    • Squadmates' banner cards cannot be retrieved unless the Illegal Trade Perk is equipped.
    • Weapons will not take up a slot if the Expensive Taste Perk is equipped.
  • The Black Market has 100 health and can block doors.
  • Loba can collapse her own Black Market by pressing the Character Utility Button H/Down/Down instead of interacting with it. Deploying a new Black Market will collapse the old Black Market.

  • 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.
  • Supply Bins and Care Packages can be looted from even when closed, and open automatically when an item is looted from them.
  • Loba herself can take one item from locked Vaults. 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.
  • Pathfinder's Grappling Hook Grappling Hook can attach to the Black Market.
  • Causes Wraith's Dimensional Rift Dimensional Rift to disappear when placed on them.

  • 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 what is not available; even if their desired loot is available, they may no longer have the need to deviate from the team.
  • It is better to leave the Black Market up so your teammate can grab what they need, then to have them run around and cause the entire team lose.
  • If it's not your Black market, do not break it.
  • 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.
  • Due to its range being cylindrical instead of spherical, place it in place with cover instead of places that are exposed.
  • 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.
Battle Royale
  • If your squad is already geared, one option to use the Black Market for is to drop your current purple/gold/red Body Shield Armor and take another high tier shield from the area. Be careful when doing this method as the Market will list the armor that you've dropped nearby.
  • Before looting a locked item from a Vault or a Bloodhound's Trials compartment, make sure your squad is finished using the Black Market since it will be destroyed immediately after looting the locked item, regardless of how many items were taken from it beforehand.
  • When going to third-party fights, use the Market to steal their loot before fighting them.
  • Using the Market is great after using a Respawn Beacon Respawn Beacon so your revived squadmate(s) can quickly gear back up.
  • If your squad finishes a fight near the edge of a Ring that is about to close, you can deploy a Black Market to quickly loot what you need such as shield swaps, healing items, and ammo, then run towards the safe zone as soon as possible.
  • The Black Market can also grab loot outside of the Ring, which becomes more valuable in later Rings when their damage is high.
  • You can use the Black Market to loot the contents of a Supply Ship before it lands at its random destination on the map MapIcon Supply Ship Landing Spot.
  • Try saving a Black Market as the late-game approaches, as its range will be able to cover a large part of the remaining space in later rings.
    • In later rings, you can use the Black Market to pull all the nearby ammo into one spot so that enemies can't restock their supplies. This is especially useful when playing with defensive characters who can defend the ammo stockpile.
  • Place this ultimate early in the round so you can loot the Supply Bins before enemies can get to them first.
  • Leave one slot unused so that when the Care Package lands, you can take a weapon from it without putting yourself in harm's way.
    • If you're not taking any weapons, you can also steal all the ammo from it so enemies that do want the weapons only get one magazine's worth of shots.
  • Since this ult can be so easily used to grab Shield Batteries and Medkits, Loba herself doesn't need to purchase them.
