Knowing the Apex Legends pick rates can tell you at a glance which legends are a must-play, and which have been put firmly in the ground by nerfs in the battle royale game. Pick rates are determined by the percentage of players who choose a legend in any of the competitive modes in Apex Legends.
The Apex Legends pick rates can change dramatically with each patch, as legends get their abilities buffed and nerfed in the FPS game. Wraith, for example, was notoriously overpowered in years gone by but took a nosedive in playtime when her abilities got decimated by a nerf. She has recently clawed her way back into the top five, with players finding a decent use case for her niche kit in the free PC game.
