Twitch streamers are loving the content that Season 2 of Apex Legends has introduced, but one in particular upped the ante by cosplaying as the game’s Combat Medic.

Respawn Entertainment launched the next chapter of their battle royale on July 2, which introduced everything from a new Legend, weapons, and a revamped Battle Pass filled with unlockables.

But the new season also reignited the game’s popularity with tons of fans who have been showing their love for Apex Legends in more ways than one, especially for streamer ‘RagePath.’

Respawn EntertainmentLifeline has been a popular target for a lot of Apex Legends cosplayers.

RagePath began his most recent broadcast without his cam turned on in order to conceal himself for the opportune moment to show off his incredible Lifeline cosplay.

“It took me five minutes to get this done,” RagePath said. “I hope you guys don’t judge this! Let me [get] some dramatic music going on. Alright, I’ll reveal the [Legend I’m cosplaying as], so it’s going to be: Lifeline.

At RagePath’s announcement, the trio of friends couldn’t contain their laughter in jubilant anticipation to see the streamer’s rendition for the Combat Medic.

But the streamer kept his audience waiting for a moment since he had “to do her pose” in order to get the full effect of the cosplay down before the much anticipated reveal.

Only a few moments later, at the apex of the epic Jurassic Park theme he played, did RagePath finally reveal his take on Lifeline that had his viewers in hysterics at the picture-perfect rendition.

To capture Lifeline’s essence, RagePath fashioned a red shirt on his head to get the hair down, while using a pair of cute up socks to replicate Lifeline’s elbow sleeves. He also had Lifeline’s gloves and backpack, along with a casually made procedure mask around his neck.

The streamer later noted how Lifeline was the easier character to cosplay out of the Apex Legends cast and a spur of the moment decision pushed him to put the design together.

RagePath went on to play a ton of games as the Combat Medic, all the while emulating her with his hilarious take to one of the game’s more popular Legends.

Apex Legends dev responds to complaints about “recycled” LTMs

An Apex Legends developer has responded to players’ complaints about bringing back old LTMs (limited-time modes), rather than adding new ones. His candid response shed some light on why Respawn continues to “recycle” LTMs and the effort that goes into perfecting them.

The debate surrounding Respawn’s continued use of recycled LTMs is not a new one. Certain members of the Apex community continue to voice their issue with the lack of all-new LTMs being added to the game.

Although there are have been numerous different limited-time modes since Apex released in 2019, Respawn brings back fan-favorites such as Armed & Dangerous and Always be Closing on a regular basis.

Although these modes are generally well-liked, some have assumed that they are recycled as a low effort means of adding ‘new’ content. However, senior game designer Daniel Klien has explained the team’s thinking.

‘Winter Express’ is the LTM returning with the Holo-Day Bash event.

Complaints surrounding LTMs on the Holo-Day Bash announcement thread led to a response from the dev. A number of players had expressed their disappointment that ‘Winter Express’ was just another “recycled” mode.

But, the game designer outlined the amount of effort that had gone into perfecting and reworking the ‘Winter Express’ mode: “between the supply ships and the new stations and a LOT of behind the scenes changes to reduce downtime it feels so much better to me.”

Despite the response, this only led to comments stating that ‘Winter Express’ was still a recycled LTM and that no new content had been added.

This led to an extremely candid statement from the developer that revealed the exact reason Respawn choose to bring back fan-favorite LTMs: “Real talk… everyone ASKS for game modes but looking at our numbers, it doesn’t seem like people play them nearly enough for us to put in the amount of effort required to make a new mode.”

This certainly offers some context to the debate surrounding “recycled” LTMs. If the player numbers don’t justify the resources needed to make a new LTM,  then why would Respawn continue to produce them?

LTMs are popular for a short period of time before players head back to the main modes.

It’s often difficult for developers to grasp what content a player base is looking for. Although social media can be a good indicator, it often only represents those who shout loudest, rather than the entire community.

Respawn devs remain very active and engage with players about issues, so feedback should always be encouraged.
