Don't ever sleep on reviving your teammates in Apex Legends. Regardless of the odds, a couple of extra bodies might be all you need for victory.

Apex Legends recently received an armor update restoring Evo Shields to their pre-Season 6 values. In this clip, the enemy Wraith is one kill away from victory. However, updated shields aren't enough to save her from two pairs of well-coordinated fists.

This remarkable clip was posted to Apex Legends subreddit Thursday by u/Windex-Windexian. The clip begins with the player, Lifeline, eliminating a squad, leaving only their team and one final squad. Their Pathfinder teammate gets eliminated, but the player quickly picks up his banner. Lifeline quickly runs to the Mobile Respawn Beacon to respawn both teammates. If the enemy Wraith secured a kill here, the game would have been over. However, the player gets downed just after finishing the respawn command.

Normally, respawned teammates would want to beeline for gear — like guaranteed gold weapons. However, these teammates had neither the time nor the space to do so, seeing as they are dropping into the final ring. They drop from the sky and proceed to beat the life out of the enemy Wraith with nothing but their fists. Luckily for their team, Wraith was all alone. Thus, the melees were enough to eliminate her, securing their team the victory.
