Wondering how to stop relying on your teammates and revive yourself in Apex Legends? We’ve got you covered.
One of the more interesting elements of Apex Legends is the ability to bring teammates back from the dead. It’s an unusual feature for a battle royale game, and fits rather well with the game’s techno-futuristic, team-based structure.
The flip side of that, though, is that because you can’t play Apex Legends solo (and because the calibre of pick-up game teammates can be variable) you might be relying on strangers to bring you back from the dead. Or even more annoying, you’re schlepping to a respawn point with someone’s tag to bring them back, then – out of impatience – they drop out of the game to start another round.
You can, however, pick up an item, in-game, that will allow you to revive yourself in Apex Legends: the Legendary Knockdown Shield.
The Legendary Knockdown Shield is a top-tier item, so finding it on the battlefield will be rare. You’re more likely to pick one up in a care package, or later on in the round when higher-level gear is dropped into the fray. But if you get one, it could just save your life, with no reliance on your teammates.
The Legendary Knockdown Shield provides additional damage protection – up to 750 – when you’re knocked down, but it also features an additional effect, labelled “[Resurrection]” in yellow text in the UI.
You can only use the shield’s resurrection power to revive yourself one in Apex Legends, but it’s hard to deny that it’s a unique and useful ability.
