Everything new ‘Apex Legends’ Season 5: Loba, Volt SMG and more

It’s only a matter of time before Apex Legends Season 5 begins, and with it comes an array of new content for the battle royale. The season named Fortune’s Favor is coming in hot with things that players might enjoy.

Apex Legends Season 5 is going to start on May 12. Players can purchase a battle pass to get some season exclusive items, which include skins and other cosmetics. Here are the biggest additions coming with the new season.


With every new season of the game comes a new legend. For this season, this is Loba, and she’s out for the head of Revenant. Loba’s skillset is primarily focused on stealing loot in the game. Aside from that, she can get in or out of various situations thanks to one of her skills, which allows her to teleport short distances.

Volt SMG

Every new season of Apex Legends also adds a new weapon to the game. Dataminers have uncovered the new weapon for this season, and that’s none other than the Volt SMG. It’s a fan-favorite from Titanfall, so players are ecstatic that it’s making its way into the battle royale.

Players are speculating that this will be an energy weapon to join that ranks of the Havoc and L-Star in Apex Legends Season 5. The Volt was initially expected to be added last season, but now, it seems that its finally coming to the game.

Changes to King’s Canyon

King’s Canyon will be subjected to major changes this season based on the two trailers for the game. According to datamines again, the changes will be focused on Skulltown and Thunderdome.

Both areas are notorious for Apex Legends players as it’s the two most action-packed locations in King’s Canyon. Now that it’s changing, fans should rethink their strategy for these two areas once more.

Mirage rework

Fans have long been asking for a rework for Mirage, and that will come in the next season. The developers have teased that fans are going to love what they have done for Mirage and that they are drawing inspiration from the Dummy’s Day Out limited-time event last February.

The devs are most likely going to focus on changing Mirage’s ultimate ability, which has been changed once before. Hopefully, the changes make Mirage a more viable character in the game.

Apex Legends Season 5 is expected to bring a lot of new content to the game, aside from what we’ve stated above. It will start only a few hours from now, so players should brace themselves for what’s to come.
