Apex Legends Seer Tips Tricks

Apex Legends season 10 sees Seer enter the battlefield, a new Recon Legend with some interesting abilities.

Season 10 is bringing a heap of new content to Apex Legends, from World’s Edge updates to meta changes in the patch notes.

As well as this, like every new season, Emergence will also see Seer enter the roster, a new Recon Legend with a lot of depth in his abilities, so let’s take a look at the best way to use him.

Bloodhound has been running the Recon class in Apex Legends for some time now, with Crypto and Pathfinder both offering very different and less effective recon abilities.

However, Seer’s kit is very promising and even looks like he might rival Bloodhound for the best Recon Legend in the game. Seer’s abilities have a lot of depth, but once players master his kit, he has the potential to be very dangerous.

How to unlock Seer in Apex Legends Season 10

Now that Season 10 has finally begun, Seer can be unlocked right now in the Legends section of the lobby menu.

You can either purchase him with Legend Tokens passively earned through playing the game or Apex Coins, the Apex Legends currency that players can purchase with real money.

  • 12,000 Legend Tokens
  • 750 Apex Coins

Apex Legends Seer abilities tips and tricks

Passive – Heart Seeker

Visualize and hear the heartbeats of nearby enemies when aiming down sights to get a clue to their location. Seer is able to “ADS” even while not holding a weapon.

Seer’s passive is a great tool for finding nearby enemies. Use the heartbeat sensor by simply aiming down sights. This will bring up a circle over your reticle, which will go from blue to orange when enemies are nearby.

Be aware, as you don’t actually need a weapon to use the heartbeat sensor, so make the most of it as soon as you land. Further, the heartbeat sensor will turn fully orange if Seer is looking directly at an enemy, which is extremely useful to know, as you can direct the tactical towards them.

Tactical – Focus of Attention

Apex Legends Seer guide

Summon microdrones to emit a focused, delayed blast that goes through walls, revealing enemies (and their health bars!), plus interrupting their actions.

Seer’s tactical works well with the heartbeat sensor. Once you find the direction of the enemy, you can easily activate the tactical in the direction of the heartbeat and scan enemies.

Further, we’ve found it’s best to hold down the tactical when you think you hear someone, waiting for the reticle to turn orange to confirm the direction, then using the tactical to scan the enemies, as holding down the tactical brings up the heartbeat sensor.

Remember, this tactical also reveals heal bars and prevents enemies from reviving, healing, and using abilities. Make sure you use it when you know someone’s doing one of those things.

Ultimate – Exhibit

Create a sphere of microdrones that reveal the footsteps of enemies moving quickly or firing their weapons within.

Seer’s ultimate covers a vast area and is great for getting information before your team enters a fight. The best way to use it is when you’re trying to gain an idea of where enemies are either fighting or pushing you and your team.

This will give you an advantage over the enemy and might even make them back off or change their plan of attack.

Class Passive: Recon

Scanning survey beacons reveals the next circle’s location.

Lastly, Seer is a Recon Legend, so don’t forget to scan beacons, a useful way of getting more information about where you and other teams will need to rotate.

That’s all for Seer’s abilities and how to use them in Apex Legends Season 10. For more on the new season, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL and check out our article on Octane’s secret update in the patch notes.

Apex Legends Season 11 is well underway, but who has dominated the pick rates for Season 11 of Respawn’s battle royale so far?

Published

Season 11 of Apex Legends has tons of characters to choose from to enjoy its several maps. But who has the top Season 11 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 players jumping ship to Respawn’s game in Season 10, Apex Legends Season 11 has benefited from continued support from gamers and streamers alike.

There are now a whopping 19 different Legends to choose from, giving players a headache before each game. The newest one is Ash, she debuted alongside the new Storm Point map.

Between the Arenas mode and Ranked Leagues to compete in, thousands of matches have already been logged in Season 11, and we will break down and find the Legends with the highest pick rates in Season 11.

Apex Legends Season 11 pick rate ranked list

This is our complete list of every character pick in Apex Legends, and we’ve ranked them in order to let you know which are favored.

Here is every Apex Legends pick rate in Season 11 ranked, as of January 18, 2022, according to Apex Legends Status:

  1. Wraith – 12.9%
  2. Octane – 12.4%
  3. Bloodhound – 9.6%
  4. Pathfinder – 8.6%
  5. Valkyrie – 7.5%
  6. Lifeline – 5.5%
  7. Ash – 5.4%
  8. Bangalore – 5.1%
  9. Loba – 4.5%
  10. Horizon – 4.4%
  11. Fuse – 4.1%
  12. Caustic – 3.9%
  13. Gibraltar – 3.7%
  14. Mirage – 3.1%
  15. Revenant – 2.2%
  16. Wattson – 2.1%
  17. Seer – 2%
  18. Rampart – 1.6%
  19. Crypto – 1.5%

Most picked Legends in Apex Legends Season 11

5. Valkyrie – 7.5%

With Ash being knocked out of the top 5 most picked Legends since her release at the start of Season 11, Valkyrie has officially taken her spot with a 7.5% pick rate.

Valkyrie is great in Season 11, with unbelievable mobility thanks to her passive Jet Pack. This allows her to reposition and get in and out of situations with ease, arguably having the best potential to survive out of all Legends due to great mobility.

Valkyrie’s Ultimate is great for maps like Storm Point, as there are no Jump Towers and so her Skyward Dive offers useful rotations. Her Ultimate is great for getting the team into a spot for final circles, as you’ll be able to fly above and past enemy teams rotating into the zone.

4. Pathfinder – 8.6%

Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 8.6%, 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. Bloodhound – 9.6%

Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 11.

Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark as a season goes on, and they currently stand at 9.6%. 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.

2. Octane – 12.4%

With a 12.4% pick rate, the speed demon takes the number two spot, continuing his reign as one of the most popular Legends in Season 11, 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.

1. Wraith – 12.9% Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 11

apex legends wraith character

Another starting Legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she has taken the number one spot with a whopping 12.6% pick rate in Season 11.

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 11.


That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 11. 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 leaks for the Apex Legends Season 12 collection event.

Apex Legends dev teases Season 12 map changes

Apex Legends players are speculating after one of the Respawn Entertainment devs hints at map changes coming for Season 12.

Published

A Respawn Entertainment employee has given players a slight hint towards what to expect in Season 12.

With Season 12 of Apex Legends just a few weeks out, players are excited to find out what’s in store.

As well as Mad Maggie possibly being the next Legend and Crypto finally getting his Heirloom in the Season 12 Collection Event, one of the devs has hinted at further changes coming in Season 12, which has the community speculating.

Respawn Entertainment’s World Director Eduardo Agostini put out a tweet on January 17 hinting at map changes. The tweet mentions Season 12 being “a few weeks away” from release, as well as giving the fans something to ponder when it comes to map changes.

Whenever a new season of Apex Legends is released, players are given new content. Most of the time, this entails map updates to give familiar areas a refresh, keeping the game entertaining.

It seems Season 12 will be doing the same, as the tweet mentions a brand new “skybox.”

As Season 11 saw only two maps in rotation, Storm Point and World’s Edge, players are expecting to see either King’s Canyon and Olympus to return, or perhaps even both.

This hint at a “masterpiece of a new skybox” for one of Apex Legends’ maps has got the community questioning which map will see changes. The fact that the dev has given something away as small as this suggests there is something much bigger in store for players when it comes to map updates.

Further, a new “masterpiece” skybox suggests that something drastic has happened on the map, as it doesn’t sound as if it is a simple lighting change.

Players are speculating that it could be Olympus, which hasn’t seen map changes since Season 9. Olympus was also last seen with ships entering its skybox, and the infestation of an alien plant being brought on the map through the POI Icarus.

Having said that, players in the comments of the Reddit post are uncertain about which map could be getting an update:

“I’ve literally read posts from people on different sources telling me that leaks/datamining all confirm that KC, Olympus, and Storm Point are the map being updated next season lol. I don’t think there’s ever been this level of uncertainty about what the update is.”


We’ll have to wait and see exactly what Respawn has in store for players in Season 12 of Apex Legends when official news is out. Stay tuned to charlieINTEL as we’ll be covering it all.
