Wraith teleports into fifth.

Wraith is easily one of the most iconic and popular Legends since the game’s release, currently sitting in fifth position with a 7% pick rate.

Her abilities are great for survivability and getting the team out of sticky situations, making her a great offense Legend, but also a great Legend for rotation and defense when your team needs an escape.

4. Lifeline – 7.1%

Lifeline finds herself in fourth with a 7.1% pick rate, being the most popular Support character in the game thanks to her impressive healing and ability to revive players hands-free, allowing her to continue to support with DPS.

3. Pathfinder – 8.3%

Pathfinder swings his way to the number three spot.

Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks and is currently sitting in third place with an 8.3% pick rate.

As a Skirmisher class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation.

2. Octane – 8.5%

Octane bounces into number two.

With an 8.5% pick rate, the speed demon Octane has taken the number two 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 I find useful for both attacking and retreating. But, most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which is a great tool for rotating.

1. Mad Maggie – 10.2%

Mad Maggie in Apex LegendsMad Maggie has shot straight to the top in Season 20.

Mad Maggie has shot up in popularity and has quickly become the most popular Legend in Season 20 of Apex Legends with a 10.2% pick rate. She’s topped the chart primarily due to being free and available to unlock permanently so long as you complete the new challenges.

Naturally, you’ll come across a ton of players playing Mad Maggie this season and many in the community are loving the new characters being free for the seasonal challenges.

Who is the least-used Legend in Apex Legends?

Newcastle is currently the least-picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 20 with 0.9%. The Support character is currently out of favor, despite having a strong kit that can be very helpful in final circle situations.

That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 20. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, altering the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.
