Apex Legends will be receiving buffs and nerfs to Lifeline in Season 9, according to an Apex Legends developer.

Respawn will be changing the in-game medic for the upcoming season, set to release on May 4. John Larson, a Live Balance Designer at Respawn, answered questions about how and what buffs will be affecting Lifeline.

“Removing res shield, increasing tactical healing speed by 60%, buffing the CP to give guaranteed upgrades,” he said. The removal of Lifeline’s revival shield will be a big change, however, the other changes to the Drone of Compassion and Care Packages mean that this nerf may not be as huge.

Apex Legends Lifeline Buffs and Nerfs Coming in Season 9

Lifeline's Drone of Compassion will now heal 60% faster according to the Buff, and her Care Packages will “guarantee upgrades”, which means summoning one will always leave players with better loot than they had before.
