    Ajay Che aka Lifeline is the most supportive of all the Legends, offering her and her team the means to survive and make it till the end.

    Her abilities are consisted of D.O.C. Heal Drone which can heal herself and her teammates, her passive Combat Medic that allows her to use consumable items and revive her team while deploying a shield faster. And her ultimateCare Package that drops from the sky providing random high tier loot for her team.

    Lifeline is a really good Legend for people who want to help their teammates be the best they can be, with healing abilities and an ultimate that gives a chance for having an edge in the Apex Games, Lifeline is always a solid choice.

    Lifeline Lore

    Ajay Che is hardly someone you would expect in the Apex Games. She is a child of a rich family that profits from wars, when she learned about their schemes she abandoned it and she enlisted in the Frontier Corps, a humanitarian organization that aids Frontier communities in need. Since then she devoted herself to help others and joined the Apex Games to fund the Frontier Corps with her winnings.

    Innocence is not a thing to be found in the Apex Games and they all know what they signed up for, every victory she gets though means more help will come to those who need it, that means Lifeline has no problem engaging in the popular bloodsport. Or so she tells herself. She may seem sarcastic and callous, but deep down she wants to help people and make the world a better place. If that means taking a few people down in the process, so be it.

    Lifeline Abilities Guide

    Tactical Ability – D.O.C. Heal Drone

    D.O.C. Heal DroneTactical
    Cooldown60 Seconds
    DescriptionDrop your
    Drone of
    to heal you
    or any nearby
    players over time
    • Places a drone if front of you that heals all players in a distance of 3 meters.
    • Heals 7.5 health per second and lasts 20 seconds, for a potential 150 health restored per target.
    • The drone can be damaged outside The Ring.
    • Players can push the drone around by walking into it, and if it goes over a cliff it falls very slowly.
    • Push the drone slowly by waking into it, use this to cover a bit of distance or reposition slightly while healing.
    • The drone can also be more strongly bumped around by certain effects such as sprint-sliding into it, or explosive effects, but these are harder to predict.
    • The drone can be used when you revive a teammate so they can get back up at full health without consuming any healing items
    • If an ally that needs health is far from lifeline, she can drop the drone and advance to another position while the ally heals up in time to join the team.
    • Never use the drone while in mid air because of its slow descent it will run out of time and will not heal anyone.
    • You can use the drone to do different things simultaneously like
      …while fighting and behind cover.
      …before replenishing shields to recover both shields and health at the same time.
      …next to Death boxes after a fight so that you and your allies can heal while looting.
      …next to a respawn beacon or a downed ally so you can heal while you respawn/revive them.

    How to Use D.O.C. Heal Drone

    Every ability lifeline has is very useful and her drone is no exception, in order to use it efficiently you have to communicate with your team and let them know that you have your drone ready so voice chat while playing Lifeline is a huge bonus.

    The drone can be used before your allies heal so they can keep their consumables when they will really need them, it is also extremely useful when a teammate is down and you revive them because the moment they get up they heal immediately giving them time to recharge their shields first.

    Having Lifeline in your teams makes staying outside the first and second ring more tolerable because once you get out you can use the drone to get your health back and waste no consumables.

    You can use it behind cover in and out of fights, or push it while healing to cover ground faster and keep moving with your team, although a bit slower it’s better than nothing.

    Passive Ability – Combat Medic – Low Profile

    Combat MedicPassive
    DescriptionRevive your
    team faster
    while being
    by a shield
    and use
    healing items
    25% faster
    • A shield will appear in front of lifeline whenever she revives a teammate, the shield will disappear immediately after finishing or cancelling the revive.
    • The shield is similar to Gibraltar’s Dome of Protection, it blocks all incoming and outgoing bullets and projectiles, even from allies.
    • Lifeline can revive her teammates in 4 seconds, the normal time is 5 seconds.
    • All consumables take 25% less time to be used.
    • The time reduced for each consumable is shown in this list.
      Syringe: 5 sec → 3.75 sec
      Medkit: 8 sec → 6 sec
      Shield Cell: 3 sec → 2.25 sec
      Shield Battery: 5 sec → 3.75 sec
      Phoenix Kit: 10 sec → 7.5 sec
      Ultimate Accelerant: 7 sec → 5.25 sec
    • TheLegendary shield’s 50% consumable reduction time does not stack with her passive.
    • As of 07/April/2020 Lifeline has received a new update that allows her to find a secret compartment inside the newly added blue supply bins in the game.
    • Even if the passive generates a shield it’s not recommended to revive your allies mid fight and in an open field because they will get downed immediately afterwards.
    • The shield blocks bullets, grenades, and explosions but does not block other players, they can pass through freely.
    • To utilize this ability to its maximum potential it’s best to use it behind cover or in combination with Gibraltar’s Dome of Protection.
    • The shield is still visible through Bangalore’s Smoke and Caustic’s Gas, it also clips out through buildings and emits a buzzing sound which can potentially betray Lifeline’s position and alert nearby enemies making them realize that she’s in the process of reviving her teammate.
    • You can use D.O.C. Heal Drone to heal yourself while reviving allies and then heal them as well.
    • Because lifeline has faster consumable usage it is recommended to use them more aggressively than other legends during fights.
    Low ProfilePassive
    Description  More difficult to hit
    incoming damage
    increased by 5%

    How to use Combat Medic

    This passive is an all in one that does more than you think, but it’s also a double edged sword because when you revive someone you can be seen from everywhere and be heard from near by enemies.

    The best use for this passive is Lifelines ability to use consumables faster allowing her to be more aggressive in fights and and keep the enemy distance for longer than most legends.

    One of the pro moves you can do with the shield is if the enemy is close enough and you have a downed teammate, you can use your downed fellow player to bring up your shield midfight making it hard for the enemies to shoot you, and if you have a shotgun you can become very deadly.

    A good way to revive your team safely is from a distance where it’s harder for the enemy to hit you.

    Ultimate Ability – Care Package

    Care PackageUltimate
    Charge Time360 seconds
    DescriptionCall in a drop pod
    with a chance to
    get high quality
    consumables or gears
    • LifelineCare Packages do not include legendary weapons as the Mastiff, Kraber or the Devotion.
    • Unlike Neutral Care Packages, Lifeline’sCare Packages are not announced, are blue but they still emit a blue light when unopened.
    • It takes 15 seconds to land when called.
    • Care Packages come with 3 item slots, each slot containing one of the following :
      Slot 1 (From the right side the package was called) : Level 3 Body shield, Helmet orKnockdown Shield.
      Slot 2 (Left side) : Shield cells,Shield Batteries,Syringes,Medkits,Phoenix Kits.
      Slot 3 (Front Side) : Level 3 weapon attachments,4x-10x Digital Sniper Threat or a1x Digital Threat .
    • You, your team or any other player can open and take whatever item is inside the drop.
    • There’s a high chance of getting a Level 3Body shield and it’s very useful after fighting with a squad because it can also provide consumables in case they have been depleted during the fight.
    • It can be used as cover or as a stepping stone to climb somewhere you couldn’t reach before.
    • Can be used for round 8 to take up nearly all of the space in the area, provide cover and can be used to climb on it.
    • Lifeline’s team should prioritize giving herUltimate Accelerants early or mid game because the recharge time is too long.
    • You should useCare Package as soon as it becomes available, unless you are fully geared.
    • TheCare Package is very obvious and can compromise your team’s position. Be careful when you use it as it may attract enemies.
    • Never use it late game with 5 squads or less because there’s a high chance that enemies will come running to your position. Although it can also be used to mislead enemies into a spot that suits you and your team for a perfect ambush.
    • If anyone is standing underneath it be it opponents or friendlies they will get crushed.

    How to Use Care Package

    Never use the care package in the presence of enemies and never use it when there are less than 5 squads left they will most probably come running to you and it might cost you the game. Otherwise you could use it to ambush enemies yourselves but take note that most of the time they are not interested when they see that the package has already been opened.

    You should find alevel 2 backpack or better yet a Legendary backpack and hoard as many as you can carry do not overdo it though as you will of course need to hold ammo and consumables in your inventory. With roughly 5 seconds to use one, you should be able to drop at least 3 from early to mid-game, after that it’s a gamble whether or not you’re going to need the items it has or maybe an enemy squad will find you if you use it, but it can still be a good option for ambushes in an open field, if you open it though enemies will surely keep their distance and lose interest unless there’s some good loot they can use.

    It will also work as a cover and an obstacle that you can climb and sometimes if you’re lucky you can crush someone underneath it.

    Most Suitable Gun Combos For Lifeline

    Peacekeeper, Apex Legends

    Because Lifeline is a support and her abilities do not let her engage and disengage enemies from close quarters easily it is better to keep mid to long range distance weapons, but having a short distance weapon helps too, that depends however mainly on her team composition and how their playstyle is.

    EVA-8 Auto /Peacekeeper & M600 Spitfire

    The go to load out for any support or defensive Legend. Want to spam enemies with countless bullets ? Get that Spitfire out and if equipped with anyExtended Heavy Magazine you can suppress them until they get flanked by your team. Have a Peacekeeper or an EVA-8 in your second slot for those choke moments, keep always in mind that the Peacekeeper can equip a“Precision Choke” Hop up and the EVA-8 a“Double Tap” Hop up.

    Wingman& R-301 Carbine /VK-47 Flatline

    Lifeline is a Legend that needs to drop as much HP from the enemy as she can and for that reason the Wingman in combination with either the R-301 or the Flatline provide enough DPS (Damage Per Second) but also be intimidating enough to keep them away.

    The Wingman can take anExtended Heavy Magazine so it can be more forgiving when you miss your shots and reload faster the higher the level is, you can also equip it with a1x HCOG Classic, a 1x Holo and a 1x-2x Variable Holo.

    The assault rifles can be used from close to long range as they both take the“Anvil Receiver” Hop up. While the automatic fire mode favors the2x HCOG Bruiser, the 3x HCOG Ranger is also a solid choice when you have the Hop up.

    Prowler SMG /R-99 & Sentinel/Triple Take

    This loadout is perfect for covering fire and keeping the enemy busy but also give you the chance to get kills, the Prowler with“Select Fire” Hop up and anyExtended Heavy Magazine brings fear to every enemy’s heart in the area, and the R-99 falling not far behind which can do about the same while having anyExtended Light Magazine for more DPS.
    The Sentinel while being a sniper rifle the most suitable optics it could take are the 3x HCOG Ranger or the2x – 4x Variable AOG, because of its ability to get charged with aShield Battery and strip the enemy shield with one shot you need to be close enough to finish them afterwards or use it strategically so your team can get the kill.

    The Triple Take on the other hand being able to equip the“Precision Choke” Hop up is perfect for initiating the first shot from long range, and then move in closer as it will take time to charge its next hit and the enemy will know you’re there so you have to plan accordingly.

    It is recommended to equip Triple Take with a6x Sniper,4x-8x Variable Sniper or a4x-10x Digital Sniper Threat but the 3x HCOG Ranger and the2x – 4x Variable AOG work really good as well.

    Lifeline Playstyle Guide

    Lifeline, Guardian Angel Skin, Apex Legends

    Lifeline’s kit is very simple and straightforward, this makes her one of the easiest legends for newcomers to the game, however this doesn’t mean that if you master her you won’t be kicking some butts.

    Her abilities are perfect for restoring her team to tip top shape and provide them with gear or attachments that they might not had the chance to find before.

    Her drone is very important for the team as it heals a substantial amount without having to spend anySyringes orMedkits and the whole squad can use it simultaneously, just be careful because the enemies can use it as well. Never use it mid-air and always drop it behind cover so it can heal you or your team without taking damage.

    In order to be efficient with Lifeline you need to be close to your team so you can heal  and keep an eye on them, if one of them is knocked down try and be next to them so you can get the chance to revive them when you are sure that the danger is over and if both of your team mates are knocked you can try and use one of them as a shield by reviving them and stop the process mid way, will get to spawn the shield in front of you providing cover making it harder to get shot while giving you a better chance to kill your opponents. Her passive allows her to use consumables faster to fight back sooner than most of the other legends and also her faster revive time is a good bonus for when a teammate of yours gets knocked down from players afar, you should be careful though because her revive shield makes noise, clips through buildings and is noticeable very easily out in the open.

    Her ultimate is very useful early or mid-game but end game it’s a bit harder to make out whether you should use it or not, it really depends on the situation, the strategy you have in mind and the knowledge of the enemy you possess, while you can use it to climb up places you couldn’t reach before, its main use is to provide you and your team with better gear, attachments and consumables. The moment you call the package will alert every nearby enemies and some of them will most likely come running for a fight, it can be seen from afar by the trail of smoke it leaves behind, the blue light when it’s still unopened and it also makes a loud noise when it’s called so it’s best to grab everything as fast as you can and leave.

    Been a gamer since birth. I don't have a certain taste in genres, so I try every type of video game I stumble across, from racing games, to RPGs, to shooters - anything that clicks in me I play it, and if i become obsessed with it, I'll also write about it .
