Apex Legends player is the teammate we could all use

An Apex Legends player has gone to extreme lengths to bring back a fallen teammate, and ended up winning the round with them.

One of the most unique mechanics in Apex Legends is the ability to resurrect dead teammates. All characters can do this, provided you can pick up your dead teammate’s beacon and make it to a respawn station.

Most players already know this, but because of the risk involved in venturing out and finding a spawn station, not to mention standing around waiting for the animation to finish, most players just don’t bother. It’s also due to the fact resurrected players drop in with no weapons or armour, so depending on what stage the match is in, it may not make sense to do it.

But that’s not what went through Reddit user SoupaTech‘s head as they made a significant trek back into the dead zone to bring back a dead teammate. SoupaTech had a nice stash of medkits, which they relied on to tank circle damage both ways, as well as during the respawn process.

Not only that, they had even more healing items to spare, which they promptly dropped for their revenant teammate to help them get to the safe zone. And it was a good call, too, because SoupaTech ended up winning that match with their teammate.

The video above is edited, but you can see the lengths they went to in order to bring back the dead player. It’s very inspiring, and goes to show that you don’t always need to think tactically in a game like Apex Legends.
