The trick comes from the Apex Legends subreddit, where a player posted a video with the caption “Newcastle can prevent the door from being kicked.”

The video shows a Newcastle player going to revive a player who was downed in front of a door. While reviving them, Newcastle’s Passive activated, which bled through the door and prevented the opponent from breaking it down from the other side.

For those who may not know, Newcastle’s Passive allows him to move while reviving opponents, and also gives him his own, giant knockdown shield while helping an ally.

Players were impressed by the helpful tip, with some Newcastle mains claiming they would try to utilize it in their playstyle from now on. “dang this is excellent, I gotta incorporate this tactic into my usage of Newcastle! Really comes in handy when trying to rescue a teammate.”

Others began brainstorming ways to use it in other scenarios, as one player asked, “If this works, in theory you can use his tactical to block a kick right?”

According to a handful of comments on the post, this same trick is also possible with Gibraltar’s Dome of Protection, though it requires much more precision to pull off. Hopefully, Newcastle mains can make good use of this handy trick when helping teammates in future matches.
