One cosplayer has stunned the Apex Legends subreddit with an incredible Lifeline outfit, awesomely recreating the in-game medic. 

Since launch, Lifeline has been one of the most popular picks in Apex Legends thanks to her ability to help out any squad member with her healing drone. Not only that, but her care packages provide an armor upgrade to any teammate, meaning she is a versatile and near-essential pick.

Outside of the game, she’s also a popular character to cosplay because of her elaborate outfit and the challenge it brings. The stereotypical medic outfit is subverted by the pink hair and headband, often paired with an abundance of straps to hold healing items.

On April 1, cosplayer and Apex Legends fan Maddie-Chan shared their incredible interpretation of the popular healer.

She explained that she was prompted to do the cosplay on account of her pink hair, which means she’s partway to a Lifeline look anyway.

As you can see, Maddie has perfected the key parts of any Lifeline cosplay, with the medic’s outfit, blue gloves and headband all featuring. To top it off, we can even see the headgear that Lifeline uses to communicate with teammates, recreated to a tee.

Feedback to the cosplay was overwhelmingly positive. At the time of writing, it sits at over 3,500 upvotes. Fans were particularly impressed with Maddie’s attention to detail when recreating the smaller parts of the outfit.

Many joked that it’s okay that she’s outside given her status as a medic, but Maddie allayed the fears by confirming the images were taken prior to any formal lockdown where she is based.

She even confirmed that the IV bag she used in her outfit was legitimate, revealing that she borrowed it off a friend who is a medical student. 

It goes to show the attention to detail the best cosplayers will go to in order to perfect their looks.

We’ve seen a large variety of Lifeline cosplays, from the awesome to the slightly more controversial. Regardless, Maddie can be thoroughly proud of her efforts here.

Why Wattson’s pylon ability is “eating” grenades in Apex Legends

After players seem to be confused about the Apex Legends character Wattson “eating” grenades, a fan has taken to Reddit to explain just exactly what is going on – and the answer is a bit more complicated than it might seem at first glance.

Confusing special abilities are always bound to happen, especially in games like Apex Legends, where every characters ability is different. Wattson, who has been a part of the game since Season 2, is a perfect example of a character who has some crazy abilities, but can be a bit confusing for some players.

For those that don’t know, she can place down an “Interception Pylon” which blocks incoming grenades, equipment, etc. in order to protect you, similar to a Trophy System from the Call of Duty franchise. Some people have been confused by this ability, claiming it’s destroying or “eating” their own grenades, which is definitely a bit peculiar. Now, thanks to a player, there’s finally a decent explanation for what’s going on.

Interception Pylon eating grenades?

According to Reddit user u/Jameso4e, who is a self-proclaimed Wattson main with 3,500 kills, there two different circles which appear when a player places the Pylon, one that destroys only “incoming” grenades/equipment and one that destroys all of them.

The outer rings is the one that destroys all equipment, meaning players should be looking to avoid standing near that one when throwing their grenades inside of the two circles. In layman’s terms, you’ll have to watch where you’re positioned if you don’t want the Pylon to “eat” your grenades.

In a video made by Jameso4e demonstrating the problem, players can very clearly see two circles. When he stands closer to the inner circle, he has no problem throwing grenades out but when he stands near the outer circle, the equipment gets “eaten”. While that may sound a bit confusing at first, once you practice, it seems to be pretty easy to master.

As to why the ability causing this, nobody really knows, but the user theorizes that it’s due to bugs. It’s been over a year since Wattson was added to the game, so here’s hoping that now that the ability has been explained, more people understand it.
