Season 1 of Apex Legends has simply launched and with it, a brand new Legend has entered the world and there have been slight steadiness adjustments to current legends. This rating relies on a mix of solo and squad play, and is totally subjective; the perfect legend is finally the one that you simply join most with and that matches your playstyle. However, with out additional ado, right here is our rating of the Legends in Season 1.
On the backside of the listing, we have now Caustic. The Season 1 steadiness change adjusted the hitboxes for Caustic, Gibraltar, and Pathfinder however sadly, I don’t suppose it’s sufficient. Apex Legends is a recreation the place aggression and evasiveness are rewarded due to the fast-flowing nature of fight, and Caustic nonetheless stands out like a sore thumb. Though his fuel traps did obtain a buff of a quicker cooldown and elevated proximity radius, they actually solely shine in closed off areas and buildings. Expert Caustic gamers will block off doorways and choke factors with their traps, however capturing the bottom of those canisters will render them ineffective. If you happen to take pleasure in establishing ambushes and enjoying comparatively defensively, Caustic is the proper legend for you, however with the quick tempo of Apex Legends and his nonetheless massive hitbox, I’ve obtained Caustic at 9.
One in every of my favourite personalities within the recreation, Mirage continues to be within the backside tier of Legends. Apex Legends has been out lengthy sufficient that gamers can often distinguish a decoy Mirage from the actual factor. This isn’t to say that his decoy means is dangerous although, in a firefight a well-placed decoy may give you that break up second diversion you have to get the higher hand in your enemies. Decoy provides you the power to outplay gamers, however Mirage’s passive is totally ineffective and his final is extraordinarily lackluster. The invisibility you are granted whereas in Mirage’s final continues to be very trackable and since you’ll be able to’t shoot again till the camo timer ends, so it as a rule places you in a dropping state of affairs.
GIbraltar’s final is implausible and his dome pairs properly it as properly. The dome can be utilized to guard your group whilst you loot and his passive aiming defend does primarily give him extra well being. Sadly, his hitbox continues to be one of many largest within the recreation, and that mixed together with his purpose down sight defend makes him an enormous goal.
Subsequent up is Bloodhound. Bloodhound is certainly one of my favourite characters and I imagine has the strongest final within the recreation. The final word’s pace increase and imaginative and prescient of sight is so advantageous, I’d attempt to feed final accelerants to the bloodhound as usually as you’ll be able to. Nonetheless, Bloodhounds tactical and passive means barely overlap. The passive grants you important info and the power to “hunt” opponents down, however the tactical pulse can typically make it troublesome to see the precise enemies when the orange define lingers round.
Pathfinder obtained the slight nod over Bloodhound due to his means to cowl distances always and transport allies. Mastering the grapple makes Pathfinder a particularly unpredictable and lethal Legend, and his zipline can be utilized as a way of escape or aggression. Additionally, nonetheless my favourite Apex character.
The latest child on the block, Octane has already cemented himself as a stable Legend. Octane’s passive heals himself slowly over time, so long as he’s not taking injury. His tactical means is a stim shot that offers 10 injury to himself however permits him to maneuver 30% quicker for six seconds, and his final drops a launch pad that’s helpful for reaching excessive locations or overlaying distance shortly. The stim shot is basically the place he shines via; the 30% pace increase means that you can get into fights and escape them shortly. A stimmed Octane that’s strafing in opposition to you in a gunfight is extraordinarily troublesome to trace, and his hitbox is comparatively small. The launchpad is okay however the passive means regenerates well being fairly slowly so attempt to not spam the stim with none heals of your personal.
Beginning out my high three, we have now Wraith. Wraith has the smallest hitbox within the recreation, already giving her a bonus, however her tactical means can let her mitigate any kinds of harm together with circle injury. Throwables are much less efficient in opposition to a superb Wraith participant as she will simply leap Into the Void and evade them. Her final enables you to get to scorching zones whereas having an escape route, and can be utilized to bait unsuspecting enemies. In my earlier rating video, I said that Wraith’s passive was nice for info, however after placing extra time into her, it’s not as useful as I as soon as thought it was. It does let if Caustic traps are close to however even should you do get caught in a fuel entice, into the void proper out of there. Total, Wraith is a particularly troublesome character to kill and her final is unquestionably underrated.
Lifeline’s means to make use of consumables 25% quicker is so essential in a firefight, and the defend she places up throughout revives permits Lifeline to go for riskier revives that may flip the tide of a battle. Early scorching drops like skulltown and bunker are simpler to execute as a result of you’ll be able to heal proper again up along with her drone. Her care bundle is nice for getting your total group legendary armor and helmets, nevertheless it does turn into a bit out of date as soon as you’re kitted out. Lifeline’s equipment is so stable individually and for a group.
This brings us to our #1 Legend, Bangalore. Bangalore is an ideal mix of aggression and protection. The 30% pace increase she will get when getting shot at lets her out-strafe enemies in a battle or escape together along with her smoke. Her smoke can be utilized to cowl your self and allies or simply blind opponents. Mix her smoke with a bloodhound final or a menace stage scope and you’ve got rapid fight benefit. You too can use her final to dissuade enemies from chasing you or use it offensively and drive enemies to depart their vantage level. Bangalore is flexible in each style and has no obtrusive points. Her equipment is helpful throughout phases of the sport; she’s presently #1.
