Lifeline brings her very own Town Takeover to Olympus with the Apex Legends Awakening Collection event, but the update also completely overhauls her abilities.

Alongside Valkyrie receiving her Heirloom in the Apex Legends Awakening Collection Event, the update is a major one for Lifeline. After featuring in the Family Business Stories from the Outlands, the healer brings the new Lifeline’s Clinic POI in an Olympus Town Takeover.

That’s not all, as Lifeline has received some game-changing buffs that overhaul her abilities as part of the event’s 13.1 update. Here’s everything you need to know about the Awakening Collection Event’s new Lifeline.

Lifeline in Apex Legends Stories from the Outlands

Lifeline long played the medic role in Apex Legends, but competition arrived with Season 13’s Newcastle. While Lifeline edged out Newcastle in the pick rates, players have been asking for the healer to receive buffs for some time now.

After being leaked, these Lifeline changes are confirmed to arrive with the Awakening Collection Event’s 13.1 update on June 21. These changes pass the ability to cancel the revive over to the player being revived, give a major buff to the Healing Drone, and reduce the Care Package’s cooldown.

Plus, players will be able to get Shield Batteries out of the Care Package, and the blue beam won’t appear until after it’s landed.

Here are all of the buffs made to Lifeline’s abilities in the Apex Legends Awakening Collection Event update.

  • Combat Revive
    • Moved revive cancel option from Lifeline to the player that’s getting revived.
  • D.O.C. Heal Drone
    • Healing pool increased from 150 to infinite (still lasts 20s).
    • Doubled the healing radius.
  • Care Package
    • Cooldown reduced from 5 minutes to 3.5 minutes.
    • The weapon attachment panel now comes with a Shield Battery instead of two Shield Cells.
    • No blue beam on initial drop (will still show up after the Care Package lands).

Lifeline will become an even more powerful addition to any squad, but we’ll need to wait and see if these buffs will affect Newcastle’s pick rate.
