Apex Legends Removes Self-Revive

In Apex Legends, the only way a player has the ability to self-revive is after they have picked up a Gold Knockdown Shield. Then, after Apex overhauled their Ranked mode in Season 13, the self-revive became far too valuable as it allowed players to rank up points by simply staying alive longer.

Since then there have been more pushback on self-revive than ever before and Apex’s Game Designer John Larson tweeted in June that, “Self-rez feedback heard loud and clear.” While some might have been expecting a nerf, Apex took it one step further by completely removing self-revive and replacing it with the Guardian Angel perk that was previously held by the gold backpack item.

What this means is that a player that is revived with a Gold Knockdown Shield will now come back with more health and armor, and the Gold Backpack gets a new perk called Deep Pockets, that allows players to stack more large healing items in their backpacks.

Apex Legends Season 14 arrives on August 9 alongside a new hero, Vantage.

Kind of weird for someone named "The Hatchetman" to not have melee...but it will have multiple "bolt-ons."
