Respawn is looking to improve Apex Legends' Lifeline with lifeline the recent balance changes ushered in with season 5, Apex Legends developer Respawn is "working on" how its support character, Lifeline, can be improved without "straight-up add[ing] power to her".

"Lots of talk about Lifeline and buffs, so let me speak to that a bit: Lifeline is in a complicated spot," tweeted Apex's lead game designer, Carlos Pineda.

"But I get it - everyone wants her to be unique and I agree she's lost some of her shine due to the other legend buffs," they added.

Of the views taken, 91 per cent of respondents thought Mirage needed a buff with his passive ability - which has now happened in season 5 - whilst 77 per cent of respondents thought Pathfinder's tactical ability was just too OP - and he too had a tweak recently.

At the time, Bangalore and Lifeline were considered the most balanced of the squad, with 83 and 85 per cent of respondents stating they were happy with their skills and abilities respectively.
