Our Apex Legends tier list is based on the Legends pick rate by Master and Predator players, our experience with each Legend in the game, their use cases during matches, and other essential factors.

  • S-tier: Legends in this tier are the best for casual and ranked matches, and their abilities are more practical when facing other players.
  • A-tier: Legends in this tier are somewhat close to the S-tier Legends but fall short in certain situations.

With the addition of the Legend Upgrade System in Apex Legends Season 20 and the recent balance changes, we saw a massive shift in the current meta, especially in ranked games and competitive play.

Bloodhound became the go-to choice for pro teams and casual players, thanks to his new perks and ability’s use case.

Moreover, many Conduit players shifted to a Controller-type character, such as Caustic, due to his perk that increases his ultimate ability area by 50%.

Wraith, the most beloved Legend, finally serves more use during matches now compared to before.

That said, these are the best Legends that you should be using right now in Apex Legends:
