Apex Legends has an abundant list of Legends in Season 12, but for those interested in finding out who the real voices are behind the characters, here is a list of all the voice actors in the game.
Apex Legends Season 11 is almost over, with Season 12 being announced on January 24. The upcoming season will be introducing a brand new Legend, Mad Maggie, which means a new voice actor has joined the crew.
Just like when any new Legend drops, the pick rates and popularity of all Legends shift, keeping players on their toes.
All the Legends are unique, both from a gameplay perspective and the personality side of things, so who are the voices that give the Legends life?
Apex Legends is now home to 20 individual characters, with Season 12 bringing Mad Maggie. Each of these characters is unique and somewhat reflects their voice actors, so let’s take a look at the faces behind the Legends.
Apex Legends voice actors
Announcer: Zehra Fazal
Although this character technically isn’t a Legend, Zehra Fazal voices the announcer in the Apex Games. So every time you hear “The Champion has been eliminated” or any announcement while in-game, apart from in Arenas, this is the voice actor you have been hearing.
Ash: Anna Campbell
Season 11’s addition to the Apex Legends roster was Ash, the Incisive Instigator. The simulacrum is voiced by Anna Campbell, who was also responsible for the character’s voice in the Titanfall franchise.
Like Ash, Anna has been a part of the Titanfall and Apex Legends franchise for a long time, being involved with Arenas way before the Legend was officially released in Season 11. The actor has also been involved in numerous films and TV shows such as NCIS.
Bangalore: Erica Luttrell
Erica Luttrell is the voice of Bangalore and an accomplished actor who has starred in HBO’s Westworld and CBS’s Salvation. She has also featured in various other games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and the Last of Us: Part II.
Bloodhound: Allegra Clark
The developers intended for Bloodhound’s voice to be gender-neutral and non-binary, a goal that is achieved through several effects that are applied to Allegra Clark’s recordings.
So, although the voice may be masked much like the character, Allegra Clark is the face behind the Legend.
Caustic: JB Blanc
JB Blanc is also an accomplished actor who has starred in popular TV shows such as Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. He is also Caustic in Apex Legends, an evil scientist whose character comes across greatly through the voice acting of JB Blanc.
Crypto: Johnny Young
One of the first Legends to be introduced in Apex Legends through Season 3, Johnny Young voices the mysterious hacker, Crypto. As well as being a voice of one of the Legends, Johnny Young is also a big fan of the game and can often be found streaming on Twitch or YouTube.
Fuse: Ben Prendergast
Fuse was introduced in Apex Legends Season 8 and is voiced by Aussie actor Ben Prendergast. Like Johnny Young, he is also a gamer and can be found on Twitch streaming Apex Legends and most likely playing as Fuse.
He has also worked on various other games such as Hades, Fallout, and Star Wars Resistance and starred on-screen and on-stage for shows like Preacher and Frontier.
Gibraltar: Branscombe Richmond
The defensive brute that is Gibraltar is voiced by Branscombe Richmond, who has a mixed heritage of English, Native American, Native Hawaiian, French, French Polynesian, Spanish, and Portuguese.
Richmond’s acting career was prevalent in the mid-1970s, unlike the other voice actors starring in various movies and TV shows. He’s perhaps best known for being in The Scorpion King and featuring in shows like The A-Team and Walker, Texas Ranger.
Horizon: Elle Newlands
Horizon dropped in Season 7, taking the play base by storm because of the Legend’s great abilities and her great Scottish accent. Elle Newlands has also featured in other games like Doom Eternal, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and Skyrim.
Fun fact: Elle is also great friends with Rampart and Lifeline’s voice actors in real life, often sharing their meet-ups on social media.
Lifeline: Mela Lee
Lifeline is one of the original characters from when Apex Legends was first released and is voiced by Mela Lee. Mela Lee is behind all the iconic lines from Lifeline’s character, such as “Mozambique here,” which she can often be found reciting on her Twitter page.
Mela Lee also voices Jade from Mortal Kombat 11, so fighting game fans may have heard her voice before.
Loba: Fryda Wolff
Fryda Wolff voices Loba in Apex Legends, the Translocating Thief. Fryda is perfect for Loba due to her Mexican roots and ability to speak fluent Mexican-Spanish, adding depth to the character. Fryda Wolff has also featured in Cyberpunk 2077, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Rage 2, The Elder Scrolls: Blades, Just Cause 4, and two Call of Duty games.
Fun fact: According to IMDB, Fryda is the second cousin of Mexican director Alejandro Andrade, also Loba’s surname.
Mad Maggie: Nicola Kawana
Mad Maggie has been involved in Apex Legends lore ever since Fuse was introduced in Season 8. After feeling betrayed by her old friend, Fuse, she has been wreaking havoc across the Outlands and disturbing the Syndicate.
Now, in order to pay for her crimes, she has joined the Apex Games in Season 12 and is voiced by Nicola Kawana, an actress from New Zealand of Māori descent who has been in the film and TV industry since 1998.
Mirage: Roger Craig Smith
Arguably the most accomplished gaming voice actor in Apex Legends, Roger Craig Smith voices Mirage, the Holographic Trickster. Roger’s voice really conveys Mirage’s mischief, fleshing out the character’s personality.
Roger’s most iconic voice acting in gaming includes Dying Light, Assassin’s Creed, Resident Evil, and Sonic the Hedgehog.
Octane: Nicolas Roye
Octane was the first Legend to be introduced after the game was released and is voiced by Jersey native Nicholas Roye, who has Spanish and Italian Heritage. His heritage works perfect for the speedy Spanish Octane, adding a dimension to Octane’s character.
Nicholas also did some voice acting for Cyberpunk 2077 and will also be heard in the upcoming Halo installment, Infinite.
Pathfinder: Chris Edgerly
Although his voice is edited to sound robotic, Chris Edgerly is the voice of Pathfinder, the friendly, boxing-loving robot.
Outside of Apex Legends, Chris is also known for voice acting on The Simpsons and in various games such as the Kingdom Hearts series and various voices in Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed, and Mass Effect.
Rampart: Anjali Bhimani
Season 6 Legend Rampart is voiced by Anjali Bhimani, an Indian-American who appeared as Symmetra in Overwatch. Anjali has also appeared on TV in Modern Family, The Sopranos, and NCIS: Los Angeles.
Revenant: Darin De Paul
Darin De Paul is the voice of the evil Revenant, a heavily edited voice, but still great work on converting the dark side of Revenant’s character.
Once again, Overwatch players may also be familiar with this Apex Legends voice actor, as they voiced Reinhardt.

Other roles in games include Destiny 2, Spider-Man, Avengers, and Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Fun fact: Darin De Paul also voiced Forge, the Legend killed by Revenant, who then took Forge’s place in the Apex Games.
Seer: Iké Amadi
Iké Amadi is the voice actor for the Season 10 Legend Seer, who oozes style and rhythm. Iké is a Nigerian voice actor pushing Seer’s African background through an authentic African accent.
Mortal Kombat 11 players may recognize his voice as he played Shao Kahn and Cyrax. For those on PlayStation, you may also recognize him from Knack, as he is the voice of Knack himself.
Wattson: Justine Huxley
Wattson was the second Legend to be introduced, arriving in Season 2. Wattson is voiced by Justine Huxley, who surprisingly isn’t French, but rather pulls off a great accent for the Legend.
Justine has also featured in Red Dead Redemption 2 and GTA V (both times voicing pedestrian dialogue), Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, and the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Huxley also completed voice work in the anime series Sword Art Online in 2020.
Wraith: Shantel VanSanten
The Interdimensional skirmisher, Wraith, is voiced by American actor Shantel VanSanten. Shantel is known for her TV work, making Apex Legends her first work in the gaming industry.
You may recognize Shantel from various on-screen works such as One Tree Hill, Shooter, The Boys, The Flash, For All Mankind, and The Messengers. Shantel also played Lori in The Final Destination (2009).
Valkyrie: Erika Ishii
Season 9 Legend Valkyrie is voiced by Erika Ishii, an accomplished voice actor in the gaming industry who has worked on games like Cyberpunk, Destiny 2, Last of Us: Part II, and Fallout 76.
Erika Ishii was born in California but fleshed out Valkyrie’s Japanese heritage with her own, adding depth to the Winged Avenger.

Who is the most popular Apex Legends character? Season 11 pick rates
Apex Legends Season 11 is well underway, but who has dominated the pick rates for Season 11 of Respawn’s battle royale so far?
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.
Before Maggie comes in and shakes up the meta, let’s take a look at the current Legend pick rates in Season 11, which provides an idea of who the most popular Legends are.
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 28, 2022, according to Apex Legends Status:
- Wraith – 12.6%
- Octane – 12.3%
- Bloodhound – 10.1%
- Pathfinder – 8.8%
- Valkyrie – 7.7%
- Lifeline – 5.8%
- Bangalore – 5%
- Ash – 5%
- Horizon – 4.4%
- Loba – 4.4%
- Fuse – 3.8%
- Gibraltar – 3.8%
- Caustic – 3.7%
- Mirage – 3.2%
- Revenant – 2.5%
- Seer – 2.1%
- Wattson – 2%
- Rampart – 1.5%
- Crypto – 1.5%
Most picked Legends in Apex Legends Season 11
5. Valkyrie – 7.7%
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 7.7% 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 – 8.8%
Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 8.8%, 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 – 10.1%
Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 11.
- Read More: All Apex Legends voice actors in Season 12
Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark as a season goes on, and they currently stand at 10.1%. 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 – 12.3%
With a 12.3% 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 – 12.6% – Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 11
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 the recent Apex Legends 1.87 update patch notes.
