This information is based on a database of nearly 8 million Apex Legends players – which isn’t the total player base, but is a very good sample size. It also doesn’t mean these are the “best” Legends either, just the most popular currently.

The complete data set for all players is only available to the developers, so unless they choose to share it publicly, we will have to use the data available via third-party tracking.

The most used Legends in Apex Legends Season 11

The battle for Apex Legends Season 11 supremacy is very up and down at the moment, and as usual, Octane and Wraith are fighting it out for top spot – with both currently locked in a deadheat.

As with the start of most new seasons of Apex, the new Legend, in this case, Ash, came along and became number one immediately. But order has since been restored, and despite how many strong legends there are, it’s no surprise that Octane’s and Wraith’s diverse abilities are prevailing.

Ash is still proving resolute for the time being by remaining steadfast in 6th place, showing she’s clearly a fan-favorite in the new season. Her drop-off hasn’t been anywhere near as severe as Seer’s was in Season 10.

This chart shows the movement of pick rates since May 2021 – Horizon has picked up slightly with her buffs in Season 10, while Bloodhound has taken a slight dip thanks to the introduction of Seer.

Wattson has risen a few spots since her buff in Season 11.

Ever since Wattson’s massive buff recently, she has slowly risen up the ranks and is no longer the least picked legend in the game. That honor now belongs to Rampart.

Loba’s pick rate has slowly started to pick up, thanks to her bracelet buffs, just moving into the top half.

As previously stated, a higher pick rate doesn’t always equal a more effective legend. But these are consistently the most popular Legends in the game. The percentages are changing all the time, but the current build of the game has seen the same few legends occupy the top five for a while now.

Here are the highest-picked legends in Apex Legends Season 11.

5. Valkyrie – 7.5%

Her aerial abilities make Valkyrie an important character option.

At 7.6% Valkyrie has quite literally risen up the ranks to become one of the game’s most popular Legends once more. Valkyrie’s Ultimate is one of the most useful and resourceful all in the battle royale, allowing for easy rotation to another part of any map.

4. Pathfinder – 8.8%

Despite being nowhere as effective as he was back in his prime, Pathfinder still manages to be the top-picked mobility-based legend in Apex Legends with 9.1%. Ever since Season 5, Respawn has continued to adjust Pathfinder’s abilities, while also giving other recon legends (Bloodhound, Seer, Crypto & Valkyrie) his original ability to scan for upcoming ring locations.

While these events have lessened his overall effectiveness, he still manages to be one of the highest-picked legends in Apex.

3. Bloodhound – 9.7%

Bloodhound’s scans make them the best recon legend in Apex.

While Seer may have taken the title of “Best Recon Legend” early on in Season 10, that time was short-lived. Bloodhound is an irreplaceable legend thanks to their tactical ability “Eye of the Allfather”, which offers unparalleled tracking and information for any team. This is a huge reason why Bloodhound boasts a healthy 9.5% pick rate in Apex Season 11.

Not only, but ‘Beast of the Hunt’ is an excellent traversal technique, especially if you need to escape the storm.

2. Octane – 12.4%

Octane remains a consistent highly picked legend in Apex, despite the nerfs he’s received since the game’s release. His easy to use, yet highly effective abilities make for a great solo legend, as well as a highly effective team player.

However, since Season 11 dropped, he has fallen to the second position with a respectable 12.4% pick rate percentage.

Octane has been a fan-favorite in many recent seasons of Apex Legends and remains popular among pros and Twitch streamers. This could explain why he still retains such a high pick rate.

1. Wraith – 12.6%

Wraith has been the most consistent legend in all of Apex Legends

Wraith was the face of the game back at launch and it’s easy to see why. Her abilities have yet to be replaced or challenged. Her portal allows for smooth and strategic rotations, while her phase makes it so that you can take more risks and still retreat with your life intact.

She has had some tinkering done  – like the removal of the Low Profile attribute back in Season 9, but she remains as deadly as ever in the current state of the game. No evidence is as clear and obvious as her 12.6% pick rate.

This currently leaves her as the most-picked legend in Repsawn’s battle royale.


So that’s it! The most picked legends in Apex Legends Season 11 – Escape. When the next set of buffs and nerfs roll out, we’ll update the standings to reflect any changes in pick rates.
