If you ask me, it doesn’t matter what side they were on. We all had our own part in the war. No one is truly innocent, so we all deserve help. Like I said, I don’t care about the title, but don’t let that fool you, I am here to win...for them. The Legends are out there...they just don’t know it yet.|

Lifeline is a Legend that is free and is unlocked immediately in the base game.
A Support Legend with healing abilities, Lifeline is a Legend best for keeping her team alive and up in a firefight. Her D.O.C. Heal Drone is great for keeping allies alive or quickly healing them after a fight. Her Combat Revive passive allows her drone to revive teammates behind an indestructible cover while she does her own thing, this also allows her to open the extra compartment in blue supply bins. Lastly, when her ultimate is ready, she can call in helpful Gear with her Care Package.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Ajay Che isn't someone you would expect to find in the Apex Games. Once the child of wealthy war profiteers, she left home when she learned of the damage her family had caused and enlisted in the Frontier Corps, a humanitarian organization that aids Frontier communities in need. She's since devoted her life to helping others and joined the Apex Games to fund the Frontier Corps with her winnings.
Since no one in the Games is innocent — they all know what they signed up for — and every one of her victories means help for those in need, 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.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
D.O.C. Heal Drone[edit | edit source]
|D.O.C. Heal Drone|
|Description||Call your Drone of Compassion to automatically heal nearby players over time.|
- Places a hovering healing drone that heals all players within 3 meters.
- Heals 7.5 health per second up to a maximum of 150, and lasts 20 seconds.
- The drone cannot be moved around once placed.
- Can be destroyed by The Ring after 2 damage ticks.
- Caustic's gas will make the D.O.C. Heal Drone malfunction while inside of the gas and will not be able to heal anyone.
- Crypto's Drone EMP can destroy the D.O.C. Heal Drone.
- Gibraltar's Dome of Protection and Caustic's Nox Gas Traps can be placed on the D.O.C Heal Drone, but they disappear as the drone does.
- The drone won't heal players while using Revenant's Death Totem.
- Can be attached to the Trident to heal while repositioning.
- The drone should generally be used liberally to help recently revived allies recover their health faster, or to conserve their Med Kits.
- Drop the drone while performing other actions where you aren't moving much to accomplish two things at once. For example, use it...
- ...while fighting and behind cover.
- ...before/while replenishing shields to recover both shields and health at the same time.
- ...on top of enemy body-boxes after finishing a fight so that you and your allies can heal while looting.
- ...on top of a respawn beacon or a downed ally so you can heal while channeling to revive them.
- You should also use one Syringe to speed up the healing process, but not too many, as this will waste the ability itself.
- If an injured ally is far away but running to Lifeline, it is possible to drop the drone early so that Lifeline can advance in position while the ally runs to the drone for health.
- Avoid using the drone mid-air; it might never reach the ground, and if it does not reach the ground, then it will never start healing anyone.
- You cannot push the drone around so make sure you place it properly and/or behind cover.
- Sometimes the D.O.C. Heal Drone has environmental interaction issues, which can cause the Heal Drone to go through a Door, Wall, Crate, etc.
- The D.O.C. Heal Drone will sometimes randomly float upwards.
Combat Revive[edit | edit source]
|Description||Deploy D.O.C to revive teammates. D.O.C. will deploy a shield and revive Lifeline’s teammate, leaving Lifeline free to defend or revive someone else.|
- Generates a shield wall in the direction Lifeline is facing whenever she is in the act of reviving a teammate. If the revive is completed, the shield wall will dissipate immediately.
- You can leave D.O.C. to continue the revive, giving you the capability to revive another teammate (albeit without the shield) or defend the teammate being revived.
- The extra compartment in blue supply bins can be opened by pressing the interaction button, revealing two more supplies (excludes Knockdown Shields).
- If a player is in the process of being revived by D.O.C., the revive will not be canceled when the last player in the squad is downed and therefore the squad will not be eliminated until the revived player is killed.
- Since Lifeline can deploy a shield to block shots and can auto-revive, it can be beneficial to revive allies in the middle of a fight, however, without cover, and especially without a Gold Backpack, there is a high probability that they get downed again immediately afterward. Engaging the enemy after letting D.O.C. continue the revive could increase the teammate's survivability, however.
- The shield wall blocks bullets, grenades, and explosions, but does not impede player movement. Players can pass through the shield wall as if there was nothing there.
- To get the most of this ability, try to revive teammates behind/near cover or in conjunction with Gibraltar's Dome of Protection.
- The shield is highly visible through Bangalore's smoke or Caustic's gas.
- Because the shield wall is so visually obvious, it can potentially betray Lifeline's teammate by revealing their exact position in a situation where enemies would not have otherwise seen them, and/or by telling enemies that D.O.C is in the act of reviving.
- The shield wall makes a slight humming/buzzing noise while active.
- Use the D.O.C. Heal Drone to heal recently-revived allies, and/or to heal yourself as you revive them.
- Skilled players can use their downed teammates and revive to pull up a shield while in combat to avoid getting shot and get an upper hand.
- When reviving a teammate in the middle of a fight, you must position yourself correctly so the shield can protect the reviving teammate because if positioned incorrectly, it leaves the teammate vulnerable to attacks.
Care Package[edit | edit source]
|Description||Call in a drop pod with a combination of 3 high-quality attachments, consumables, and/or gear.|
|Charge time||360 seconds|
- Care Packages come with 3 item slots, each slot containing one of the following:
- Slot 1 (right slot relative to where the care package was called): Evo Shield, Helmet or Knockdown Shield.
- Slot 2 (left slot): Shield Cells, Shield Batteries, Syringes, Med Kits, Mobile Respawn Beacons and Phoenix Kits.
- Slot 3 (front slot): Level 3 Weapon Attachments, 4x-10x Digital Sniper Threat or a 1x Digital Threat.
- Lifeline's Care Packages do not contain Supply Drop Weapons.
- Unlike natural airdrops, Lifeline's care packages are blue and are not marked on the map or announced. They still emit a blue light when unopened.
- Takes 15 seconds to land once called in.
- While not as flashy as some other legend's ultimates, the high chance of getting Epic-tier Evo Shields is worth its weight in gold especially if your squad hasn't had the good fortune to get anything above Common, as well as supplying Shield Cells and Med Kits if they have been depleted after a particularly grueling fight.
- Can be used as a cover in an area with low covers, or as a stepping stone to climb up to greater heights.
- Lifeline's team should prioritize pinging out and giving her most if not all of the Ultimate Accelerants they find, at least in the early-mid game.
- Lifeline can use her Care Package on Round 6 to take up nearly all the space in the final area, provide cover, and can be used to climb up to safety as the chaos unfolds.
- Care Package should generally be used as soon as it comes off cooldown unless your team is worried about enemies being very close by or if your team is running from something dangerous.
- Lifeline care packages are very obvious and can thus compromise your team's exact position. Be on guard when using it, as nearby enemies may decide to come running over.
- This issue is exacerbated in the very late-game with 2-3 squads remaining, where a small circle makes getting ambushed that much more likely.
- Conversely, this can be used to Lifeline's advantage, as bait: Lifeline could use the package away from her team to mislead enemies, or in a spot where her team can watch the care package and ambush whoever comes.
- If enemies are standing underneath the package as it drops, they will be crushed.
- As an enemy squad, watch out for the various visual and audio effects. Calling in a Lifeline Care Package makes the same sound as when a regular care package is called in, but it is not announced. This sound especially is audible over a long distance.
- Though the sound effects are different, be sure not to confuse the blue beacon of light with the light blue one of a Replicator.
- You can also use it after you've respawned a teammate to replenish a bit of their loot, but like the above tip said, be on guard when using it as enemies have an extremely high chance of coming to you because of the dropship and the Care Package.
Low Profile[edit | edit source]
|Description||More difficult to hit, incoming damage increased by 5%.|
- Additionally, incoming leg shots do the same damage as body shots.
