Respawn has released the full patch notes for Apex Legends Season 9: Legacy. The new season introduces a ton of balancing adjustments for several characters and weapons, with the most welcome changes being made to Lifeline.
Lifeline has become a bit of a frustrating problem in Apex Legends ever since the adjustment to her and Octane’s abilities in Season 5: Fortune’s Favor during the Lost Treasures event. Her Combat Medic passive ability was transformed into Combat Revive, allowing her to use her D.O.C. drone to revive someone while she kept fighting.
Since Season 5, players have abused this perk–Lifeline’s D.O.C. drone erects an impenetrable shield when reviving a squadmate, which Lifeline can hide behind to reload or quickly heal in the middle of a fight. This made her far too dangerous.
