Abilities Tips
D.O.C. Heal Drone

The drone should generally be used liberally to help recently revived allies recover their health faster, or to conserve their Med Kits.
Drop the drone while performing other actions where the player is not moving much to accomplish two things at once. For example, use it…
…while fighting and behind cover.
…before/while replenishing shields to recover both shields and health at the same time.
…on top of enemy body-boxes after finishing a fight so that the player and their allies can heal while looting.
…on top of a respawn beacon or a downed ally so the player can heal while channeling to revive them.
The player can also use one Syringe to speed up the healing process, but not too many, as this will waste the ability itself.
If an injured ally is far away but running to Lifeline, it is possible to drop the drone early so that Lifeline can advance in position while the ally runs to the drone for health.
Avoid using the drone mid-air; it might never reach the ground, and if it does not reach the ground, then it will never start healing anyone.
The player cannot push the drone around so make sure it is placed properly and/or behind cover.
Combat Revive

Since Lifeline can auto-revive, it can be beneficial to revive allies in the middle of a fight, however, without cover, and especially without a Gold Backpack, there is a high probability that they get downed again immediately afterward or killed during the revive. Engaging the enemy or after letting D.O.C. continue the revive or canceling the revive could increase the teammate’s survivability, however.
To get the most of this ability, try to revive teammates behind/near cover or in conjunction with Gibraltar’s Dome of Protection.
Use the D.O.C. Heal Drone to heal recently-revived allies, and/or to heal oneself during revives.
Care PackageWhile not as flashy as some other legend’s ultimates, the high chance of getting Epic-tier Evo Shields is worth its weight in gold especially if the player’s squad has not had the good fortune to get anything above Common, as well as supplying Shield Cells and Med Kits if they have been depleted after a particularly grueling fight.
Can be used as a cover in an area with low covers, or as a stepping stone to climb up to greater heights.
Lifeline’s team should prioritize pinging out and giving her most if not all of the Ultimate Accelerants they find, at least in the early-mid game.
Lifeline can use her Care Package on Round 6 to take up nearly all the space in the final area, provide cover, and can be used to climb up to safety as the chaos unfolds.
Care Package should generally be used as soon as it comes off cooldown unless the team is worried about enemies being very close by or if the player’s team is running from something dangerous.
Lifeline care packages are very obvious and can thus compromise the team’s exact position. Be on guard when using it, as nearby enemies may decide to come running over.
This issue is exacerbated in the very late game with 2-3 squads remaining, where a small circle makes getting ambushed that much more likely.
Conversely, this can be used to Lifeline’s advantage, as bait: Lifeline could use the package away from her team to mislead enemies, or in a spot where her team can watch the care package and ambush whoever comes.
If enemies are standing underneath the package as it drops, they will be crushed.
As an enemy squad, watch out for the various visual and audio effects. Calling in a Lifeline Care Package makes the same sound as when a regular care package is called in, but it is not announced. This sound especially is audible over a long distance.
Though the sound effects are different, be sure not to confuse the blue beacon of light with the light blue one of a Replicator.
The player can also use it after you have respawned a teammate to replenish a bit of their loot, but like the aforementioned tip, be on guard when using it as enemies have an extremely high chance of coming to you because of the Respawn Ship and the Care Package.
