Apex Legends have drastically doubled the
Legend roster since first launching the game. The addition of Fuse now makes a
total of 16 legends. This provides players with a wider range to choose from,
but this poses a new problem. Which Apex Legend should you pick if you wish to
rack up wins in the new season?
Respawn has done an incredible job when
balancing out all these Apex Legends, as there's little down all of these
legends are viable. This is especially true for some of the less frequently
used Apex Legends.
Since the release of Apex Legend, some of
the characters have undergone massive transformations. When conducting a quick
recap of what transpired in the Season 8 update, Wraith’s hitbox was updated,
while we saw Horizon’s tactical nerfed once again.
Along with these changes, there have been
numerous other tweaks to many of the characters. Not to mention, we saw other
changes made in the Chaos Theory update, which switched up the meta again.
After these updates, we’re able to develop a detailed breakdown of the current
best legends in season 8 of Apex. Take a look:
After the changes were undertaken in Season
6, Bloodhound has quickly risen in the ranks from first being a 'middle of the
pack' character. One of the massive pluses of this character remains the Hunt
ability. However, season 5 saw another buff, which was a shorter cooldown on
the 'Eye of the Allfather' tactical.
Moving to season 6, it's now evident that
every champion team has a Bloodhound on its roster. The main reason behind this
is that their tactical is crucial in all fights and most teams are felt very
vulnerable without a Bloodhound.
Horizon was the newest character in season
7 and set the game on fire. She was noted as some much-needed fresh air to the
meta. One of the Scottish Gravitational Manipulator's well-liked features is
her incredible mobility. Many players seem to enjoy her many fantastic
features, as she became the highest pick-rate character, which knocked Wraith
off her top spot.
Black Hole is Horizon’s ultimate and when
paired with other characters, like Caustic Gas and the ultimate paired to
Gibraltar, the team can quickly become almost invincible. Horizon’s tactical is
agile and quick, which helps her get to the top of buildings. Thus, she can
easily and effortlessly outthink and escape other opponents.
When looking at an offensive perspective,
Lifeline may not be the most powerful legend out there. However, everyone seems
to love her on their squad. She’s equipped with the ability to heal at the
simple and rapid press of a button. Not to mention, the Revive Shield is an
extreme help in even the most intense fights.
With that being said, Lifeline can also use
the blue supply bins for additional gear. Nonetheless, the biggest buff to
Lifeline is her Combat Revive, which allows her to revive remotely. This allows
her to remain in a battle while her teammate gets revived.
