As one of the best first-person shooter players in the world, Twitch streamer Michael ‘Apex Legends is no different – with his viewers desperate to know the best character to use.

The former Counter-Stike: Global Offensive pro has dove deep into the new free-to-play Battle Royale since its release on February 4, where it has proceeded to take over the gaming world – racking up over 10 million players in its first three days of release. 

As ever, his viewers want to be like him and do their best to emulate his jaw-dropping plays in their own games, despite perhaps lacking his god-given ability to rain down headshots in video games.


Respawn EntertainmentThe characters give players a wide choice depending on their playstyle.

Responding to a question from his chat about how he’d rank the characters, Shroud answered: “Bangalore, Bloodhound, Wraith, Lifeline, Pathfinder, Mirage, Gibraltar and Caustic.”

He kept to his own rankings as he proceeded to then select Bangalore as his character for the game he was waiting to load into.

However, seeing as the former Cloud9 pro has freakish skills in first-person shooters, his rankings may differ to someone who prefers more of a support role – choosing a character like Lifeline or Gibraltar over Bangalore or Bloodhound in a bid to assist their teammates.
