The ways that people play Apex Legends are always changing. This is because new content and patches are always changing the game and giving players plenty of chances to try out new strategies and preferences.
Players choose new characters like Newcastle when they are added because they want to try something new.
But sometimes updates have unintended effects, like what happened with Season 13 of Apex, which brought Lifeline back into the public eye.
Why is Lifeline popular?
A user named Salt Concentrate2937 posted a short clip of a graph in the Apex Legends subreddit. The graph showed the percentages of players who chose to play as Newcastle or Lifeline. Recently, Lifeline has become more popular than Newcastle.
In the thread that followed, Apex veterans gave their expert opinions on why they thought this was happening.
Some said it showed that players thought Lifeline was a better or more effective way to play than Newcastle. One user said, “Lifeline’s kit is more solo friendly than Newcastle’s, as well as Newcastle’s tactical being a learning curve,” while another said: “being able to fight while reviving is a great equalizer.”
Some thought it might have something to do with money. Others disagreed.
Lifeline is a Legend that has healing abilities. It can help you keep your team alive. Her ability is D.O.C Heal Drone – it can heal all players with that drone. She also has Combat Revive, which helps your teammates revive in no time.
Anyway, Apex Legends remains one of the best games out there right now. It is a free-to-play battle-royale game that was developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. It’s available for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, as well as Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
