Following a huge buff in the Apex Legends Season 14 update, players have discovered just how strong Newcastle’s revive is, as he is able to pick teammates up while zooming around the battlefield.

Apex Legends Season 14 is keeping things interesting for players, not only by introducing Vantage but also through buffs and nerfs to Legends in attempts to shift the meta.

While a lot of the talk in the community has been regarding the Mad Maggie buffs and Valkyrie nerfs, some have discovered that Newcastle’s revive is now extremely strong.

For those unaware, Newcastle’s Passive is called “Retrieve the Wounded,” and it allows him to move while reviving his teammates and also protect them with their Knockdown Shield. This was already fairly strong prior to Season 14, but following some major buffs, it’s arguably the best revive in the game.

In the patch notes, it states that Newcastle’s shield revive ability has had its move speed increased by 25% and also reduced its turn slow by 50%. Ultimately, this buff improves the speed at which Newcastle can move while reviving teammates, and this is something that Mokeysniper picked up on.

As you can see in the video, Newcastle can revive his teammates while moving at an incredibly fast speed. This is very strong when you are trying to reset in a fight and need some breathing space while reviving a teammate, giving them time to heal up as well.

According to Mokey, players can do this by simply activating the revive on a slope or ledge and walking down the slope. Newcastle will gain momentum down the hill while also continuing to revive.

The bigger and steeper the slope the better, as this will make you go fast and across a further distance.
