You’ll want to know how much storage space Apex Legends will take on your system before installing it, so we’ve covered the exact game file size on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox.

Since its release in 2019, Apex Legends has become one of the fastest-growing battle royale titles with a large player count in 2021. Some fans just play public games, while others compete in Ranked Leagues.

The developers often add new content through various update patches, so you’ll need to know how much storage space is required before you install the game.

Installing Apex Legends requires around 74.05 GB of storage space on your PC or laptop. This means that you can’t enjoy the game on a low-end PC with relatively low disk space.

If you’re running low on storage then you can try deleting some of the larger files in your system, including other games that are already installed. You can also run a system cleaner to remove files that are taking up space.

Once you have enough space, you can try downloading Apex Legends. This can take an estimated time of 12 to 14 hours, but this can vary based on the speed of your Internet connection. You might get it done quicker if your network is fast.

As of version 1.82, the Apex Legends takes up around 69.82 GB on PlayStations. You’ll be able to access the game when approximately 28.95 GB of the file has completed downloading.

However, you’ll need to wait for the rest of the installation before you can access network features and play online. Installation of the base game will probably take a few minutes or an hour.

The remaining download could also take an hour or two, depending on your Internet connection.

Apex Legends game file size on Xbox

The Apex Legends game file size is around 69.9 GB on Xbox Series X and 75.7 GB on Series S. This means that you’ll have to wait several hours for the game to finish installing before you can play it.

You can keep the download going on your system while you play something else. If you feel like doing something else then just make sure that your system isn’t powered off when leaving the room.

As with PlayStation, the installation time could range between one hour or several depending on the speed of your network connection. You can speed it up by making sure that no other devices or apps are downloading updates or other large files.

Apex Legends game file size on Nintendo Switch

You only need around 24.85 GB of free space to install the battle royale title in your Switch. The Apex Legends game file is much smaller on the Nintendo Switch than it is on other platforms.

The success of Apex Legends since its launch has been spectacular, so it came as no surprise that fans asked the devs to bring the battle royale to other platforms. It finally arrived on the Nintendo Switch on March 9, 2021.

The game size will continue to grow over time as Respawn add new content to it. Apex Legends Season 11 will bring the new Legend Ash and a new map called Storm Point that players can battle on.

apex legends season 13 pick rates

Season 13 of Apex Legends has tons of characters to choose from to enjoy its several maps. But who has the top Season 13 pick rates in Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale shooter?

Apex Legends hit the ground running when it launched with eight different characters to choose from in its battle royale offering. The game suffered a notable lull when Call of Duty: Warzone launched, but with many popular streamers such as NICKMERCS and Dr Disrespect continuing to support the game, Apex has grown expeditiously.

There are now a whopping 21 different Legends to choose from, giving players a headache before each game. With Season 13 now underway, Newcastle is the latest to join the roster.

Let’s take a look at how the new Legend has shaken up the roster by looking at the current Legend pick rates in Season 13, which provides an idea of who the most popular Legends are.

Most picked Legends in Apex Legends Season 13

5. Bloodhound – 8.6%

Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 13.

Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark as a season goes on, and they currently stand at 8.6%. They are easily the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends, thanks to their tracking tools and incredible skills, plus, their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.

4. Pathfinder – 9.2%

Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 9.2%, and counting, for quite some time now.

As a Recon class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation. He consistently manages to stay in the top 5 as a result.

3. Valkyrie – 10.1%

Despite getting some nerfs, Valkyrie is in the top 5 Legend pick rates for Season 13 with 10.1%, as she is the movement Queen. Her Jetpack Passive allows players to escape any kind of situation, which is crucial for survivability.

As well as her Passive, her Skyward Dive Ultimate is also great for mobility. This ability is the best rotational tool in all of Apex Legends, as it allows her and the team to relocate from a bad position or situation, into a good one.

Lastly, Valkyrie’s Tactical is also extremely useful for being aggressive and getting enemies out of camping spots, so long as you have enough room above you to launch the Missile Swarm.

2. Wraith – 10.2%

Another starting Legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she has taken the number two spot with a 10.2% pick rate in Season 13.

Wraith’s stand-out features are her ability to get out of trouble very quickly – teammates included. Her abilities allow her to sense danger, become temporarily invulnerable, and create portals to escape predicaments. It’s easy to see why Wraith continues to be an absolute fan favorite in Apex Legends Season 13.

1. Octane – 11.2% – Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 13

With a 11.2% pick rate, the speed demon takes the number one spot, continuing his reign as one of the most popular Legends in Season 13, fluctuating between the top two places.

Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense. Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attack and running away.

But most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.


That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 13. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, altering the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.

We’ll be sure to keep this updated regularly so you can stay on top of the in picks and don’t forget to check out our guide on the best Legends to choose in Season 13.

Crazy Apex Legends glitch adds third-person mode to Season 13

A new Apex Legends glitch is allowing players to change their camera angle from first-person to third during battle royale matches.

Published

on

Apex Legends players have found a new glitch that turns the player’s view into third-person for the rest of the match.

Apex Legends is a first-person shooter in its thirteenth season, but as some fans will know, Respawn have played around with a third-person mode in the past, with an LTM and easter egg to activate the perspective in the Firing Range.

With that being said, there is currently no official way to play the game in third-person, unless you are playing Apex Legends Mobile. However, it seems players have found a new glitch that allows them to do so.

valkyrie skyward dive apex legends

Apex Legends content creator Skeptation highlighted a new glitch that players can perform during matches of battle royale that turns the camera from first-person to third.

In order to perform this glitch, players must have a Valkyrie on their team with the Skyward Dive Ultimate. Then, players will need to sit inside an open Loot Bin and get the Valkyrie to activate their Ultimate on top of it so that they can connect to the Skyward Dive.

Once Valkyrie initiates the launch, the Loot Bin will trap the player and prevent them from taking off, eventually allowing players to just walk around in third-person mode.

The glitch isn’t difficult to do, and while being in third-person may seem like a big advantage, it is very buggy, as the camera actually clips under the map when you slide and you will constantly have a cable attached to you that’s is connected to Valkyrie.

Also, when you ADS in this glitched third-person perspective, it locks your camera. There is also no crosshairs to see where you’re shooting, making it very difficult to play.

If you then connect to Valkyrie’s Ultimate once more after activating the third-person glitch, you will get thrown very fast in a random direction, sometimes clipping you out of the map and subsequently causing you to die.

While it may be fun to try out, we definitely don’t recommend players doing this glitch, especially in the ranked mode, as it could result in you receiving a ban.
