A useful new bug for Apex Legends character Lifeline allows her Healing Drone to boost your health from any distance.

Lifeline, whose real name is Ajay Che, is a combat medic who joined the Apex Games to fund a humanitarian relief organization. With her abilities all targeted around healing, she is an extremely useful part of any three-person composition, with her D.O.C. Heal Drone incredibly handy for giving HP to multiple teammates at once.

Some players have noticed a bizarre bug with the medic’s drone though, with it healing players even when they should be out of range of the robot.

Respawn EntertainmentLifeline’s D.O.C. Healing Drone can heal multiple players at a time.

In a clip posted on Reddit by /u/goncusa, a Lifeline can be seen using her healing drone, with a robotic arm connecting her to the device and boosting her health.

As expected, once the character begins to move away from the D.O.C, the arm disconnects, which is supposed to end the process. The player was stunned to see the character’s health continue to rise long after she had left the room.

“Look where is, and he’s healing,” exclaimed the confused Wraith player. “What the fuck.”

How this bug was accomplished has yet to be confirmed, but in a comment on the clip, /u/dadnothere explains that this can happen “if the healing rope hits something,” and apparently will stay connected under the floor even as you move away from it.

This glitch could be incredibly useful in end-game scenarios, as the ability to move away from the drone while gaining health would give players an incredible advantage over those who weren’t constantly receiving HP in those final gunfights.

The bug is an unintended exploit for the D.O.C. Heal Drone though, so don’t expect it to remain in the game forever, with Respawn likely to nerf it in a future update.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

Impressive Revenant Heirloom concept

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
