How to Revive Yourself in Apex Legends

In Apex Legends, there are two ways to be revived should you get knocked down in battle. As noted above, the most common revive method is waiting for your teammates to come over and help you out once the coast is clear. Alternatively, there’s an item in Apex Legends that allows you to revive yourself, but only once.

If you’ve looted Knockdown Shields before, you’ll likely be familiar with how they’re used to defend against damage after you’ve been knocked down. There are several different rarity tiers for Knockdown Shields with the highest tier being Legendary. On top of being extremely difficult to find, the Legendary Knockdown Shield offers an additional bonus beyond the damage shield in the form of Resurrection.

In order to revive yourself in Apex Legends, you’ll first need to pick up this Legendary Knockdown Shield. Then, once you’ve been knocked down, you can choose to use the Resurrection ability. Note that this revive method takes the same amount of time as a teammate revive. As such, you’ll want to use Resurrection when you’re away from enemies.

The Legendary Knockdown Shield has been spotted in care packages, areas that spawn high tier loot, and the blue zones of King's Canyon.

Of course, this isn’t always possible if you’re the last surviving member of your squad. Just keep in mind that Resurrection can only be used once. If you get knocked down again after using it, you’re out of luck. For those who’ve never seen the Legendary Knockdown Shield before, it has the chance to spawn in the blue zone of King’s Canyon.

It’s also been spotted in care packages, as well as in areas that spawn high tier loot. With these areas being fought over during the early stages of the match, you’ll want to come prepared if you intend to seek out the Legendary Knockdown Shield.

With that in mind, what do you think of the Legendary Knockdown Shield? Do you think it’d come in handy during a match, or are your friends a more reliable revive method?
