Apex Legends has been out for a few months and some of the game’s characters are racking up insane winrates, pulling away from the rest of the cast
Respawn Entertainment released their battle royale on February 4, since then players have been experimenting with different Legends although some have definitely been more effective than others.
According to statistical breakdowns from PlayApex.net, Legends are starting to cement themselves at the top of the winrate column which could give players some insight on forming the best squads.
Looking from the bottom to the top, it seems that Caustic is still struggling in the game coming in at a lowly 10.3% winrate. There have been numerous examples of the Toxic Trapper being incredibly effective in certain scenarios, but it seems those moments are coming to far and few between to secure consistent Champion screens.
Though there’s a leap between Gibraltar and Mirage, the two are still only pulling a winrate of 11% and 13.5%, respectively. Mirage's kit is still struggling to be effective in a late-game scenarios, while Gibraltar has been suffering from his large hitbox.
Bloodhound comes in at sixth with a respectable 14.2% winrate. Players are starting to learn how to make optimal use of Bloodhound’s tracking abilities, so it will be interesting to see if that will lead to better winrates down the line.
The largest spike in winrate comes with fifth ranked Bangalore, tallying a 17.4% winrate. When Apex Legends launched, Bangalore was the go-to offensive powerhouse and looks like players are only getting better with her.
In a surprise ranking, the newest legend for the game Octane is making an early splash in the Apex servers. He narrowly topples Bangalore with a 17.5% winrate.
The Legends with the top rates are stone throws away from each other, with the multifaceted Lifeline coming in at number three winning 18.3% of her games.
Pathfinder is basically the mascot for Apex Legends at this point, and coming in at number two with a 19.1% winrate it’s easy to see why. A lot of players have been loving the robot’s high mobility to make incredible plays.
This leaves Wraith alone at the top, hauling in an impressive 19.9% winrate. A lot of players have been choosing the Interdimensional Skirmisher for her ability to set up quick rotates with her ultimate or get out of a hot situation using Into the Void.
Wraith certainly gives tons of advantages when setting up an engagement, which could be a major factor in her winning so many games.
Some of the lower winrates come from Legends that are still finding their place in the battle royale. While it’s fascinating to see such a diverse spread in winrates, it’ll be interesting to see how they stack up once the game has more time to mature and evolve with future patches and more Legends.
