Apex Legends has an abundance of characters to choose from.

Remember, the ranking is based on a Legend’s performance in the Battle Royale mode, not the Mixtape playlist. It’s also important to keep in mind that it’s difficult to get this list perfect, as a Legend’s strength is often based on the map, playstyle, and team composition.

3. Horizon

Horizon is one of the most effective characters in the Apex Legends, as her kit is extremely powerful for individual and team mobility, making her and her teammates hard to hit.

Further, her Ultimate is extremely powerful for forcing enemy teams out of powerful positions and exposing them to well-placed throwables and friendly abilities such as Gibraltar’s Defensive Bombardment.

2. Pathfinder

Pathfinder has consistently been one of the most popular Legends since the game was released, as he was among the original character list when the game first launched.

The reason this character is one of the best is due to his mobility, which can help the team get into better positions and rotate across the map effectively.

1. Wraith

Taking the top spot for our Apex Legends Season 18 tier list is Wraith, as she continues to dominate in terms of survivability and mobility.

On top of Wraith’s great Tactical ability, which allows her to escape damage for a short period of time and relocate, her Ultimate is an extremely important tool for either the purpose of being aggressive or defensive, making her well-rounded as a Legend and a great team character.

However, keep in mind that it all depends on how you play and what you can do for your team, as most Legends are viable so long as you play your role.

Who’s better, Bloodhound or Seer?

Currently, many are choosing Seer over Bloodhound due to his efficiency at tracking down enemies, knowing exactly where they are, and being able to track their movements with his Ultimate.

Despite being nerfed slightly in Apex Legends Season 16, Seer is still great at tracking enemies down.
