Who are the best characters in Apex Legends? Top 5 Legends

5. Gibraltar

While crafting a Respawn Banner will help you bring back your teammates, Gibraltar’s strengths lie in throwing a Dome of Protection for his team that blocks incoming and outgoing attacks, with a 33% faster revive time inside this barrier.

Additionally, Gibraltar’s Ultimate – Defensive Bombardment can be used both for aggressive and defensive playmaking.

4. Catalyst

Catalyst is one of the best Controller Legends in Apex Legends right now, helping players take control of a building or area with her fortification abilities.

Catalyst’s passive ability Barricade enables her to reinforce two broken or unbroken doors at once and her Ultimate Dark Veil is a great tool for cutting off the enemy line of sight. This is a great tool for intense combat situations, allowing you to rotate without taking damage, revive teammates, or slow down the enemy push.

3. Bangalore

Meta is changing with Bangalore emerging as a popular pick in Season 19.

Bangalore is one of the best Assault Legends in Apex Legends currently. Over the last few seasons, players have come to realize Bangalore’s effectiveness in winning matches.

Not only does Bangalore provide two Smoke Launchers to create walls of smoke, but her passive – Double Time makes you run 30% faster for two seconds while under fire. Then, her Ultimate Rolling Thunder is one of the strongest abilities in the Battle Royale to stop squads from pushing, start attacks in an area, or simply make the other team reposition.

2. Newcastle

Newcastle is also among the best Support characters in Season 19 of Apex Legends. Being a Support, you get the ability to craft banners with him on your team, along with his shields.

While his passive, Retrieve the Wounded, lets you revive your teammates with a Revive Shield in front, his Mobile Shield ability is a great way to move around the map without taking much damage. Moreover, his Ultimate Castle Wall enables him to leap onto a targeted area and quickly set up a big shield. This ability allows him to leap huge distances, so it can also be used to surprise your enemies.

1. Revenant

A nerf might come soon for Revenant in Apex Legends.

Revenant is our top pick for the best Legends to play in Apex Legends’ Season 19. With Revenant receiving a major rework, the character is an extremely powerful Skirmisher pick right now.

The new Revenant’s Shadow Pounce allows him to leap 20 to 50 meters away, onto a wall or an area, and his passive Assassin’s Instinct will now reveal the enemies that are low on health. However, the devs have also kept this Legend’s iconic wall-climbing ability with his passive.

Finally, Revenant’s Ultimate Forged Shadows, when activated, allows him to do several things that are listed below.

  • Creates a 75 HP Shadow Shroud around him, while increasing his upper body hitbox (easier to hit).
  • Provides an extra layer of protection against damage from melee, bullets, or explosives.
  • If the Shadow Shroud is destroyed, and you get a knockdown, the Shadows are revived.
