Her Tactical gives Bangalore and her team protection, while her Passive keeps her light on her feet and hard to hit while being shot at. Lastly, her Ultimate is perfect for crowd control and stopping enemies from pushing.

Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks and is currently sitting in second place with a 7.6% pick rate.

Octane bounces into number one.

With an 8.5% pick rate, the speed demon Octane has taken the number one spot in Season 20. Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense.

Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attacking and running away. But, most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.
