How to get the best loot from Lifeline’s Care Package in Apex Legends

If you’re a Lifeline player in Apex Legends, you likely spend a decent amount of time waiting on your Care Package — but there’s a way to know what you’re going to get out of it before it even drops.

The Care Package is Lifeline’s Ultimate ability. Where other Legends might have more aggressive abilities, such as Octane’s Launch Pad or Wraith’s Dimensional Rift quickly getting them into (or out of) a gunfight, Lifeline is all about supporting the team.

With her D.O.C. Heal Drone and Combat Revive, Lifeline can keep teammates’ health up, but the Care Package is something that an entire trio can benefit from.

Lifeline typically plays the healer role in Apex Legends.

That said, if you’re a good Lifeline player, you’re likely very selfless — but sometimes you need to think of yourself first.

That’s why it’s worth knowing that you can essentially pick what you want to get out of your Care Package, because sometimes you might want to prioritize your own needs rather than that of your team. In particular, it’s worth knowing that you can guarantee yourself getting purple shields, helmet or a knockdown shield from the care package every single time.

So, a tip that many players aren’t actually aware of is that each of the three slots of a Care Package contain particular items. You can expect to find one of the following in each door:

  • Slot 1 (front slot, relative to where it dropped)
    • Level 3 Weapon Attachments
    • 4x-10x Digital Sniper Threat
    • 1x Digital Threat
  • Slot 2 (right door)
    • Purple body shield
    • Purple helmet
    • Purple knockdown shield
  • Slot 3 (left door)
    • Shield Cells
    • Shield batteries
    • Syringes
    • Med Kits
    • Phoenix Kits

While some savvy Lifeline players might have caught wind of this already, it’s obviously not something that is well-known across the entire community, and it could be a game-changer if you ever find yourself in a sticky situation and need to grab that purple helmet or shield in an instant.

It’s worth remembering that unlike regular Care Packages, Lifeline’s will never carry weapons such as the Kraber, Devotion or Peacekeeper, so if you’re holding out for a gun, you might be waiting a while.

Apex Legends hints at removing World’s Edge in Season 7

Apex Legends players are patiently waiting for Season 7 to begin and explore all the new content coming with it, but fans of World’s Edge will have to be patient to go back to Talos.

The map was added to Apex during Season 3 all the way back in October 2019 and was the second map in the game after King’s Canyon.

While it certainly mixed up the battle royale, it seems like World’s Edge will be on the way out when Season 7 gets going on November 4, 2020, based on what we’ve seen from Respawn.

In a tweet on Oct. 27, the official Apex Legends account hinted that “with World’s Edge on the verge of collapse, the Apex Games need to find a new home.”

It doesn’t take a genius to pick up on what Respawn is putting down here, as it seems the map will be removed from the game, at least for a while, with the start of Season 7.

This wouldn’t be without precedent either. Back in Season 3 when World’s Edge was first introduced King’s Canyon, the game’s original map from the release was removed until it returned in April of 2020.

With Ranked being broken into two splits for the new Season, Respawn plans to introduce players to Olympus, the new home of the Apex Games, before sending players back to WE later in the Ascension update.

In fact, Kings Canyon is already going to be completely nixed from Apex Legends’ ranked playlist in Season 7.

It seems likely that the Legends will board the giant rocket that appeared recently on World’s Edge and set off somewhere new to battle it out for the top spot.

As for what will happen to the train and everything else, there was a black hole showcased in Horizon’s Stories from the Outlands video, that certainly seems like it would be able to swallow the entire map, and even the planet it’s located on.
