Despite Apex Legends Season 16 not bringing a new Legend, various balance changes have shifted the best Legends to use.

Apex Legends Season 16 is a very unique season as the devs decided not to bring a new Legend to the game.

While this may cause players to think that not much has changed in terms of the meta, the new season also brought a massive rework to the existing Legends, impacting every character in the game.

With the remastered Legend class system and various buffs and nerfs to characters in the game, the best Legends to use in Apex Legends for Season 16 have changed dramatically.

We’ve ranked all the Legends in the current Apex update, giving you a great idea of who to play in the new season.

Best Legends in Apex Legends: Season 16 ranked list

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.

Here’s our list for every Legend in Apex Legends Season 16 ranked:

23. Vantage
22. Revenant
21. Crypto
20. Fuse
19. Wattson
18. Ash
17. Rampart
16. Catalyst
15. Gibraltar
14. Mad Maggie
13. Newcastle
12. Bangalore

3. Pathfinder

Thanks to some much-needed buffs in the Season 16 update, Pathfinder has found himself as one of the best Legends in the game yet again thanks to his great movement potential and ability to provide rotation for teammates with his Zipline.

2. Octane

Octane returns to being one of the best Legends in Apex Legends Season 16, not just because he’s one of the most popular Legends when it comes to pick rates, but mainly because he’s still the best Legend in the game when it comes to movement and speed.

1. Wraith

Taking the top spot for our Apex Legends Season 16 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 received a huge buff in Season 16. Now Wraith’s portal can travel further and she also speeds up while making the portal, which gives even more power to the already strong ability.

Who is the best character for ranked?

The best characters for ranked include Seer, Valkyrie, Loba, Mad Maggie, Newcastle, Gibraltar, Caustic, Pathfinder, Horizon, Wattson, and Lifeline.

In Ranked Leagues, it’s all about team composition and catering to your play style. Depending on the characters that your teammates are playing, you may want to balance defense, offense, support, and recon.

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.

Team composition is everything in Apex Legends.

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.

Who is the best solo Legend?

The best solo Legends are those with excellent movement and great survivability, so Horizon, Valkyrie, Octane, Wraith, Pathfinder, and Vantage are all great options.
