Heat Shields is a newly added survival item in Apex Legends. It will protect you from taking damage from the big, bad ring by building a safe dome. Once a protective dome is created, you will be safe regardless of whether you are outside of the ring’s safe zone or near the new Ring Flares.

The best thing about the protective dome is it increases the healing rate up to 50% and revive rate by 25%. It should be noted that these bonuses will only be availed for Heat Shields that have been created near the ring. Yes, you would not get these speed bonuses when your life is not in danger.
