Want to know who tops our Apex Legends tier list? With the release of Catalyst, Apex Legends players now have 23 Legends to choose from when taking on the battle royale known as the Apex Games. Each Legend has its own skills, playstyle, and personality, with plenty of choice for every type of player, whether you like to be aggressive, defensive, or offensive to the senses (cough – Caustic – cough).
Your ideal Legend pick depends on your strengths and weaknesses – your experience, game sense, movement skills, and aim all factor in, as does your squad composition and whether you’re playing with friends or a team of strangers. That said, although all the characters are relatively balanced, there are some Legends who have pulled away from the pack due to their powerful abilities, and some who are more niche picks. Our Apex Legends tier list aims to give you a quick look at the current Legend meta in one of the best free PC games.
We’ve ordered the Legends here in order of general effectiveness, to help you decide who to play if you’re after a big win. We’re aiming this list at the average player who has a reasonable grasp of the game, but we’ll also point out the best characters for absolute beginners, and mention the ones you’ll see in top-tier competitive play.
