Winning games in Apex Legends is no easy task, but it can be made easier with a well-timed and placed Care Package from Lifeline.

When players think of traps in Apex, Caustic or Wattson is what will usually come to mind, but it turns out that there might actually be a better character suited to the strategy.

Lifeline’s Ultimate calls in a Care Package that will be filled up with impressive loot which will give her squad the upper hand in many matches.

However, one player has discovered that using the package in the right situation could make all the difference between winning and losing a match, and you don’t even have to loot it.


Reddit user daSQUIDD was in the endgame with the final circle closing in all around when they made the decision to trap the opposing squad in a building with a Care Package.

The ultimate came hurling down and even though the other team was able to claim the gear on it, they were trapped inside the building and had to escape the moving storm through a less than ideal path. The drop isn’t destructible, so it definitely threw a wrench into any plans they had for getting through the now blocked doorway.

Luckily, they did have a Wraith and were able to take her portal out of there, but it still led to their deaths and a second place finish. It turns out that Lifeline’s well-timed ultimate was able to secure a victory, confirming there are multiple ways to win using her Care Package.

In most situations, it would be much more beneficial to actually get the loot from the drop, but as we see here, sometimes you don’t have to actually do that.

While this more than likely won’t be phasing out a Caustic gas chamber any time soon, it seems like there is enough room in the current meta for Lifeline to get in on the action.
