“As part of your partnership investment in F. Clinton & Partner, you’ll acquire a new multi-floor, state-of-the-art office space, fitting for a high-end private solutions Agency. The property includes office space for the team and a dedicated lower level for vehicle storage. You can add further modification with an Armory to service your arsenal and a Vehicle Workshop that opens a new range of modifications ideal for completing contracts for clients.”

Dr. Dre returns in GTA Online The Contract update

World famous rapper Dr. Dre was a major part of GTA Online’s Cayo Perico Heist and he’s now made his return in GTA Online’s The Contract update.

“On the streets of Los Santos, Dr. Dre’s stolen phone is the talk of the town — word is the device is loaded with never-before-heard music from Dr. Dre’s as-yet unreleased work, which you’ll need to track down before it leaks to the world. This could make or break your Agency, and you’ll be the one getting your hands dirty.

As you make headway with the investigation, you’ll discover new songs from the six-time Grammy Award-winning hip-hop legend, all premiering exclusively within this massive update to GTA Online.”

You can also hang out with Dr. Dre by visiting the Record A Studios, where you’ll get a “behind-the-scenes glimpse of the hit-making process.”

The Trials of Osiris is an end-game Crucible event that resets its rewards and map every Friday at 9 AM PST / 1 PM EST / 6 PM GMT. The more reputation you can earn in Bungie’s Trials of Osiris, the better quality of rewards you will receive in Destiny 2.

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?

Published

apex legends map

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 21, 2022, according to Apex Legends Status:

  1. Wraith – 12.5%
  2. Octane – 12.3%
  3. Bloodhound – 10.3%
  4. Pathfinder – 8.8%
  5. Valkyrie – 7.4%
  6. Lifeline – 6%
  7. Bangalore – 5.1%
  8. Ash – 4.9%
  9. Loba – 4.4%
  10. Horizon – 4.2%
  11. Fuse – 3.7%
  12. Gibraltar – 3.7%
  13. Caustic – 3.7%
  14. Mirage – 3.2%
  15. Revenant – 2.6%
  16. Seer – 2.1%
  17. Wattson – 2%
  18. Rampart – 1.6%
  19. Crypto – 1.5%

Most picked Legends in Apex Legends Season 11

5. Valkyrie – 7.4%

valkyrie apex legends

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 7.4% 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 – 10.3%

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 10.3%. 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%

apex legends octane character

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 – 12.5% 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 12.5% 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 best Apex Legends weapon skins to use.
