Lifeline is a very versatile Legend to use. Her abilities make her good both as an aggressor and team player. Continue reading this quick Lifeline character guide to find out why you may switch to a Lifeline main if you aren’t already.
PASSIVE ABILITY: Combat Medic
Revive knocked down teammates faster while protected by a shield wall. Healing items are used 25% faster.
Let’s say you are playing a game of Apex and its your squad vs one more squad for the win. One of your teammates goes down and the other team is starting to push on you. Lifeline’s passive ability lets you revive teammates 25% faster than any other legend in the game AND use all health and shield items 25% faster. In time sensitive scenarios like the one above, this is crucial. With that in mind, Lifeline also deploys a half circle shield in the direction in which you are looking when you start the revive which blocks all incoming damage. These passive abilities alone are a game changer from a teams perspective as well as someone dropping in solo.
TACTICAL ABILITY: D.O.C. Heal Drone
Call your Drone of Compassion to automatically heal nearby teammates over time.
Let’s move on to her Tactical Ability. Lifeline has a D.O.C. Health Drone for her tactical and this is a drone that can be deployed to heal yourself and teammates. As someone who mains Lifeline in game, the best play when you are dealing with a downed team mate is this — lay down fire toward the enemy, run up to the downed team mate, pop your health drone and THEN go for the revive. When your team mate gets up they will instantly begin healing from the drone AND as a bonus, if you take damage during the revive, the drone will begin healing you as well. Be careful though, your drone is neutral which means enemies can heal from it too!

ULTIMATE ABILITY: Care Package
Call in a drop pod full of high-quality defensive gear.
Lastly, we will cover her Ultimate ability. Lifeline’s Ultimate may seem bleak because it doesn’t drop offensive items but let me tell you from experience, this care package drops PURPLE OR ABOVE defensive items giving you and your team a big advantage. There is a way for you and your squad to synergize and continue to get good items. This comes from what seems to be an abundance of Ultimate Accelerants in game. Tell your squad to ping them every time they see one and you can earn Lifelines ultimate ability in mere minutes, over and over again. Drop in and give Lifeline a try if you haven’t already and who knows, maybe you’ve found yourself a new main!
