Apex Legends has some very grim news for players hoping for different playlists coming in the future.

We’re barely into the start of Season 1 of Apex Legends but leakers are already discovering a lot about the future of the game.

Since Apex Legends launched in February, fans have been calling for a Solos and Duos playlist so they don’t have to play with a full group of friends. 

Pretty much every battle royale game on the market features playlists like that so fans thought for sure it was coming.

However, leakers have now discovered that ‘Solos’ and ‘Duos’ files have been completely removed from the game files with the Season 1 patch.

This doesn’t mean the door is shut forever on the chances these playlists will ever become available, but it doesn’t look like they’ll be coming any time soon.

Since Apex Legends features Legends with different abilities and playstyles it appears that Solos and Duos have a chance of never being in the cards.

Realm Royale, another battle royale title that featured different character types, found a way to implement Solos and Duos, so all hope isn’t necessarily lost.

For the time being, it doesn’t look like we should be expecting additional playlists to come to Apex Legends any time soon.

Going into the start of Season 1, players will be stuck with the Trios game mode.

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
