How To Self Revive In Apex Legends

To self revive players will need to find a particular item, without doing so means you will need a teammate to get you up off of the ground.

A Legendary Knockdown Shield will unlock the ability to revive yourself, otherwise known as a gold Knockdown Shield, see below for an in-game picture!

They can be found in high tier loot areas as well as supply drops. Chances are if you run into a handful of other teams and are the victor, you'll find one too.

Once you are downed, you'll see a prompt on your screen telling you which buttons or keys to press to self revive, bear in mind that using your shield to protect yourself from attacks will show as gold, therefore players will likely target you.

Once you initiate the self revive animation, it'll be fairly clear to enemies what you're doing, so do your best to get out of everyone's line of sight. There's also a sound which most will be very familiar with so be on guard in case you need to stop reviving and put your shield up, this is a great opportunity for a teammate to catch the enemy lacking.
