Respawn Entertainment released an official Apex Legends comic strip that teases the arrival of Loba’s Heirloom, rumored to be a war fan.

Apex Legends is set to receive a wide assortment of brand-new cosmetic items in the Season 14 Collection Event, and players are convinced that it will bring a new Heirloom for the Legend Loba.

There has been a ton of speculation about what Loba’s Heirloom will be, and one rumor is that it will be a decorative folding fan. Now, the developers might have confirmed this to be the case.

On August 30, the Apex Legends Twitter account shared an official comic strip starring Loba. This short story gives us some more insight into her background, including the fact that her mother once owned a folding fan.

While her original goal was to get her hands on a gem, she puts that aside to steal the fan instead. This shows that the decorative item is of great importance to her, making it an ideal choice for an Heirloom.

This wouldn’t be the first instance of a Legend’s Heirloom having a deep link to their past, as Crypto’s Biwon Blade came with an animation of him taking out a picture of his family. So, it’s possible that Loba has a similar connection with her Heirloom in Apex Legends.

However, it’s worth keeping in mind that the developers haven’t officially confirmed that the folding fan is Loba’s Heirloom. Previous leaks suggested that her war fan would feature blades but those aren’t shown in the comic.

We won’t know for sure if Respawn Entertainment were teasing Loba’s Heirloom in the comic until they make an official announcement. Hopefully, we’ll see it appear in the game during the Season 14 Collection Event.
