Apex Legends dev reveals Season 7’s most popular legends

An Apex Legends developer has revealed the top five most-picked legends in Season 7, and where new legend Horizon places.



Apex Legends Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most-played legends in Season 7.

Season 7 of Apex Legends added a new legend ‘Horizon’ to the roster. She is capable of manipulating gravity and creating Black Holes. With every new season, the new legend will be a popular pick at first. If that character’s abilities don’t fall into the META, their popularity will decrease over time.

Horizon, however, is still in the top five most popular three weeks into the Season.

Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein appeared on The Third Party: An Apex Legends Podcast, where he revealed players’ favorite legends in Season 7.

Top 5 Legends

The top 5 most played Legends, in order, are as follows:


Wraith has been a popular choice since the launch of Apex in 2019. She is part of the base game, so you don’t need to pay to play as her. This offensive Legend is capable of teleporting behind enemies to flank, and she is even capable of being invincible for a short duration.


Klein said there was an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound. They have a very high pick-rate, being the second most popular, but have a low win-rate. So although players enjoy playing as them, they are not necessarily the most effective legend. They are capable of tracking enemies’ footsteps and revealing their location.


Horizon is the newest playable character in Apex Legends. Although three weeks have passed since her introduction, she is still the third most-picked legend. Klein said it’s likely she will settle into her place as either the fourth or fifth highest picked.


Klein revealed that Octane is always picked often. “Octane doesn’t win a lot of games but he is one of the most picked legends to play in the game by far,” said Klein.

Octane is the fastest of the characters, being able to use an adrenaline stim shot and throw a bounce pad on the ground to leap long distances. “Fast is fun,” said the podcast host.


Lifeline is another legend who is available for free in the base game. Her Passive and Tactical abilities are great assets to any squad. She is able to deploy her D.O.C Heal Drone to revive teammates for her, and the drone can also provide healing on the fly.

This list is likely to change with future updates, where legends are often rebalanced and reworked, and a new META forms.
