Apex Legends Mobile is having a pretty rough start as it seems cheaters are already running wild on the platform.

Apex Legends players on the Mobile version of the battle royale are already having their experience ruined by cheaters will wallhacks and aimbot.

Despite not even being officially launched worldwide, Apex Legends Mobile seems to be having some issues with cheaters already.

Respawn‘s mobile version of their incredibly popular battle royale game has no doubt impressed players with their vision for “mobile-first Legends” and exclusive game modes.

However, it seems they have big issues to deal with before they get ahead of themselves.

Cheaters and hackers are an issue in most battle royale games across all platforms, ruining the experience for those who love to play the game fairly through the use of wallhacks and aimbots.

On console and PC, Apex has suffered greatly throughout the years with both hackers and cheaters. It’s not just players teaming in ranked lobbies that’s a rampant issue, it’s also players using hacking software to gain an unfair advantage, especially on PC.

Unfortunately, it seems this issue is also going to be prominent in Apex Legends Mobile, as Reddit user HamadKx highlighted the issue with a post in the Apex Legends subreddit.

In the post, the user shows a video of a hacker in Apex Legends Mobile, eliminating enemies effortlessly through walls with aimbot and possibly wallhacks. This may not come as much of a surprise to those who are familiar with Mobile games, as hackers seem to be just as prevalent on mobile as they are on PC.

However, it does seem that the issue is affecting the hype for Apex on Mobile, with the caption of the post reading: “I think my excitement ends here for Apex Legends Mobile.”

It could get even worse for those on Apex Mobile, as another user in the comments stated: “You can actually emulate a mobile on your PC so you may encounter players with keyboard and mouse while you’re trying to aim in your potatophone.”

Hopefully, the devs working on Apex Legends Mobile have plans in place to combat the hackers and cheaters, as it does seem to be a big worry for the community.

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 is continuing to grow 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.

Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 8.1%, 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.

4. Bloodhound – 9.1%

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 9.1%. 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.

3. Valkyrie – 9.6%

Despite getting some nerfs, Valkyrie is in the top 5 Legend pick rates for Season 13 with 9.6%, 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. Octane – 10.5%

With a 10.5% pick rate, the speed demon takes the number two 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.

1. Wraith – 10.8% – Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 13

Another starting Legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she has taken the number one spot with a 10.8% 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.


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.

Apex Legends Season 13 has surpassed its competitors and become the most streamed game on Twitch, which is a testament to the game’s increasing popularity.

2022 marked the third year anniversary of Apex Legends, and while some games may enter a decline after being around for this period of time, Respawn’s battle royale continues to grow.

With the game now in its thirteenth season, Apex Legends offers an abundance of content and a massive community to get involved in, especially now that the game has been brought to the mobile community.

One of the best ways the community can engage and entertain is through Twitch, as Apex Legends has become the platform’s most-streamed game.

Despite some server issues for console players that have now been fixed, Apex Legends Season 13 has been Respawn’s most popular season so far.

This isn’t just thanks to more popular content creators and streamers such as NICKMERCS and Dr Disrespect being interested in the game, but also because of the great content and gameplay that the free-to-play shooter offers.

Since Apex Legends Season 13 launched, the battle royale game has become the most-streamed game on Twitch, edging it over competitors like Valorant, Fortnite, and Warzone.

Apex Legends has been streamed a total of 1,781,223 hours, taking the number one spot since the launch of Season 13 back on May 10.

With more content to come for the game this season, including an anime-themed event and summer store takeover, we expect Apex Legends to continue growing in popularity.

We’ll have to wait and see how long Respawn can keep this up for, especially with all the hype around Warzone 2.

Apex Legends Mobile is finally here, but some players still prefer to use a trusty controller over the touchscreen controls. Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Mobile’s controller support.

After months of playtests, Apex Legends Mobile was finally released on Android and iOS on May 17, 2022. It features many of the same Legends and weapons as the main game, as well as the mobile-exclusive Fade, all on your mobile phone or tablet.

But even with its fully-fledged touchscreen controls, some players prefer having a controller in their hands when playing first-person shooters. Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Mobile’s controller support.

Does Apex Legends Mobile have controller support?

Apex Legends Mobile does not have controller support at launch but the devs have confirmed that it’s on the way.

Speaking at a press event ahead of Apex Mobile’s launch, the developers said they understand that many prefer to use a controller over the touchscreen controls. “It is super important for us, we understand usability issues, and how much fun it is,” explained one of the devs.

They confirmed that controller support is in the works for Apex Legends Mobile but unfortunately, it didn’t make it to the game for launch.

When is controller support coming to Apex Legends Mobile?

While there’s no concrete timeframe, Apex Legends Mobile’s developers confirmed that controller support should come in the “very near future.”

They explained that “We’re actively exploring [controller support] but haven’t quite got it right.” When exactly it will arrive is anyone’s guess, but it should be here before the end of 2022.

Although there is no official support for it, players can actually pair their Bluetooth controller with their phone and use it. The controllers that are compatible and can pair with your mobile device include the following:

  • Xbox Series X/S controller
  • Xbox One controller
  • PlayStation DualSense controller
  • PlayStation 4 controller
  • Razer Kishi

Simply activate the pairing mode for the controller and find it on your mobile’s Bluetooth devices section. This will allow you to use the controller on Apex Mobile, but unfortunately, as there is no support for the feature, it can be buggy, especially when it comes to customizing your layout.

When controller support arrives, we’ll be breaking down how to use it and the best controller settings to dominate Apex Legends Mobile.
