Lifeline mains might soon have something to celebrate as both her voice actor and an Apex Legends writer have teased some “juicy” lore, possibly on the way in Season 6. 

The biggest thing that set Apex Legends apart from its battle royale competitors is the use of unique, story-based characters. These ‘Legends’ have their own different abilities to suit various playstyles, but they’ve also got interesting backstories as well.

All of the Legends have had some of their past explained, but not all of them have been in great detail. The most detailed explanations have come in the form of events, cinematic trailers, and other clues from Respawn themselves. 

Even though there have been hints at Bangalore being the star of the show when season six comes around, it appears as if Lifeline will getting some love as well.

Lifeline’s voice actor, Mela Lee, responded to a few fan questions on Twitter about her character before noting that one writer, Tom Casiello, has given her some insight into what’s coming next. 

“Some very juicy Lifeline Lore is coming courtesy of @tommiecas,” she tweeted. “I literally cried when I got a sneak peek.”

The writer responded himself, noting that his previous teasers about Lifeline lore were not in vain and that Lee’s tears were “good tears” – adding fuel to the fire that something pretty big regarding the Combat Medic is in the works.

Now, some fans quickly pointed out that they’re hoping that the teasers lead to a lifeline-themed event, just like how Wraith, Octane, Crypto, and Bloodhound have had Town Takeover events in previous seasons. 

Casiello was also the same writer who confirmed we’d be learning a lot more about Bangalore in Season 6, which led to speculation about an event for her as well. How exactly Lifeline and Bangalore will both get their time in the spotlight is unclear.

Neither the voice actor nor the writer offered anymore insight beyond their tweets, so it’s purely speculation from interested fans. Lifeline does, however, have an Heirloom set, so it would make sense for her to have an event as well, given that Wraith, Octane, and Bloodhound have all had the same treatment.

Apex Legends devs have rolled out fixes for frustrating Season 7 bugs that makes players face an infinite loading screen and a separate glitch causing Rampart’s turret not to stick to the Trident.

Treasure packs returned to Apex for Season 7, as a way to keep the battle pass interesting and give players something to come back and search for every single day, if you don’t get trapped, that is.

The packs have become a significant part of Apex matches since players don’t want to miss one and fall behind on completing the set and miss out on some cosmetics.

For some though, the packs have caused major issues during Season 7 though, as a bug would randomly lock them in a loading screen.

Treasure Packs were introduced in Apex Legends season 6, and now they’ve caused quite the headache.

That wasn’t all throwing players off. Rampart mains also found that, while it was advertised in the Season 7 trailer, the legend’s turret wouldn’t always stick to the new Trident vehicles.

Both of these bugs have definitely been getting under players’ skin, but the good news is Respawn have rolled out a fix for both issues that will hopefully put an end to the incoveniences.

“As an FYI, we’ve deployed a small patch to re-enable the ability to place Rampart’s turret on the Trident as well as provide a fix for players who are getting stuck on certain menu pages,” Apex wrote on Twitter on Dec. 1.

This means that once you log in following the update, treasure packs should no longer get you caught in a loop, and Rampart can once again fire Sheila atop the Trident.

Previous reports claimed that another update had been rolled out to try and fix the treasure pack glitch already, but if you’ve been on Apex’s Reddit recently you’ll see still numerous posts of people still encountering it, and a similar issue with getting stuck on the main loading screen as well.

Despite a few bumps like this along the way, Season 7 has generally been well-received by the Apex community, so hopefully, this patch takes care of these issues for good and let us get back to playing.
