Mirage has quickly become one of the best Legends in the game. He was buffed moderately in Season 19, but his perks this season really make him shine. Mirage can cause utter chaos on the battlefield with his platoon of decoys. He basically has a never-ending supply of said decoys and can cause a lot of confusion in the game.

Seer is finally viable again in Apex. Receiving tons of nerfs after his release; Seer has been at the bottom of the barrel for the longest time. This season shows why he was not buffed in the previous seasons, as just adding perks has made him a broken Legend. Seer has once again claimed the crown for one of the best recon Legends in the game right now. He has also risen in pick rates, as almost every team has a Seer in them.

Wattson is the ultimate defensive Legend in Apex right now. Her already strong kit was made even better with her perks. Wattson is the best for blocking off small areas late in the game. She can stop her team from being bombarded with ordinances while providing a large area of shield regen. She can also help her team stock up on ordinances of their own using her falling stars perk.

Bangalore has consistently been a great Legend since the launch of Apex. Her kit is very easy to understand and gives some of the best mid-game options to create a cover. She can break her enemies’ line of sight and quickly reposition. Their ultimate remains one of the strongest in the game and one of her perks allows her to throw it more often, adding to her overall power.

Revenant – Synthetic Nightmare

The simulacrum was reworked to become one of the best Legends in the game. Revenant’s kit allows him to zip to and from enemies. This ability alone makes him a tremendous offensive Legend. He also has one of the best Ultimates in the game. His Ultimate gives him additional health, making him perfect for hard pushes. On top of that, his perks make his tactical skills more powerful than they already are, allowing him to engage and disengage from fights quickly.

The poster child of Apex, Wraith has always been a top pick. This season is no different; we rate her as the second-best Legend in the game. Wraith remains the queen of repositioning her entire team and quickly zipping out of fights. Her perks make her a force to be reckoned with, as she can do what she has always done way faster.

Conduit – Shield Healer

Horizon may not have gotten the best perks in the game. However, she still remains the queen of movement in Apex. Her kit is too powerful, keeping her on the top constantly. She can quickly gain verticality in-game and strafe away from danger mid-air. She does not take fall slow-downs, making it easy for her to run away from engagements.
