Apex Legends pick rates: Most popular Legends in Season 10

With an ever-growing roster of available characters, the pick rate for each in Apex Legends is constantly fluctuating as new metas emerge and the developers make balancing changes. Here’s the latest data for pick rates in Season 10.

It’s important to clarify that this data is based on a database of just over 6 million players – which isn’t the total player base, but is a very good sample size. It 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 ApexLegendsStatus.


This is available pick rate information based on users who have connected their account, which at the time of writing is over 6.2 million players. These stats also exclude players below level 10, to provide a more accurate picture of pick rates for all Legends.

Octane Apex legends arenas tier list Octane is currently the top pick rate in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends Pick Rates in Season 10

  1. Octane: 16.5%
  2. Wraith: 11.4%
  3. Bloodhound: 9.6%
  4. Pathfinder: 8.9%
  5. Lifeline: 6.9%
  6. Seer: 6.8%
  7. Bangalore: 5.1%
  8. Valkyrie: 5%
  9. Horizon: 4.5%
  10. Loba: 3.9%
  11. Caustic: 3.9%
  12. Fuse: 3.6%
  13. Gibraltar: 3.2%
  14. Mirage: 3.1%
  15. Revenant: 3%
  16. Wattson: 1.8%
  17. Crypto: 1.4%
  18. Rampart: 1.4%

Octane is topping the charts in Season 10 still, despite a popular introduction for Seer. Despite how strong Seer is, it’s no surprise that Octane’s simple and fun abilities keep him at the top. Following his nerf, Seer has dropped from 2nd to 6th.

Wraith is also moving back up to the top after taking a hit in Season 8, probably thanks to Low Profile being removed. Valkyrie‘s pick rate has dropped sharply since her first introduction, now down to 8th.


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 dip thanks to the introduction of Seer – who has plummeted since his nerf.

Valkyrie has slowly dropped off from her initial hype at the start of Season 9, but her pick rate is still high, coming in just below Bangalore.

Loba’s pick rate has slowly started to pick up, thanks to her bracelet buffs, but she’s still in the bottom half overall – but that might change as more players try her out again.

When the next set of buffs and nerfs roll out, we’ll update the standings to reflect any changes in pick rates.
