Respawn Entertainment introduced characters with different abilities into the mix, which helped create more of a team-oriented battle royale experience.

Apex Legends currently only features a Trios playlist which means team synergy is important to have. While players can get by without having synergy and just fragging out, it definitely helps to have Legends that compliment the others in a squad.

A website by the name of Play-Apex.net tracks the most played characters and the results are pretty close to what you’d expect them to be. 

Wraith stands alone at the top while Octane is in second. Octane’s placement could be due to him being a new character but he’s also pretty fun to play which is why he lands where he does on the list.
