Apex Legends is always in a state of change as Respawn Entertainment attempts to balance its battle royale. With 18 different Legends to choose from, dozens of weapons, and multiple maps, there is quite a bit for the developers to stay up on. Lifeline was one of the best Legends in the game in the past couple of seasons. Ever since a shield was added to her drone, she was a must-pick Legend.
Then Respawn removed the shield, allowing for her kit to normalize. Lifeline mains have been complaining, but it's a hard balancing act. Lifeline was simply too powerful with a shield. That's when this Reddit post comes into handy.
The post asks, "you can change anything about lifeline, what would it be?" One particular answer was worth noting. "Have the care package double as a respawn beacon."
Redditor OnlyTilt pointed out that Lifeline's Care Package could double as a Respawn Beacon giving players a chance to bring back friends without having to carry one around. It's a small enough change without shifting the balance too much while giving Lifeline a distinct personality.
Even though some rankings have Lifeline lower on the list, she can still be viable. Just a nudge in a good direction will take her back to the top.
