A useful Apex Legends technique lets you keep moving quickly while healing up.
With no natural regeneration, managing your health and shields in Apex Legends means taking a break from the fighting to use items like med kits and shield batteries.
Though it’s possible to move while healing, doing so typically slows your movement speed to a crawl. If you need to escape a dangerous situation, therefore, you usually have to make a decision between running and restoring your health or shields.

For situations in which you’re trying to escape with just a fraction of health remaining, however, there is a means of doing both at the same time.
If you initially build up some momentum with a quick slide before hitting the heal, and then “bunny hop” – continuously jump every time you hit the ground – you’ll carry the momentum forward as the heal completes, maintaining running speed throughout.
Apex player u/PonyOfMacaroni demonstrated the technique.
This technique could very well prove a life-saver, as it will allow you to remain evasive while restoring your health and shields rather than having to remain effectively stationary for the duration of the heal.
