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.

Apex Legends Season 13 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 13 ranked, as of June 24, 2022, according to Apex Legends Status:

  1. Octane – 11.2%
  2. Wraith – 10.2%
  3. Valkyrie – 10.1%
  4. Pathfinder – 9.2%
  5. Bloodhound – 8.6%
  6. Horizon – 6.4%
  7. Lifeline – 5.1%
  8. Bangalore – 4.8%
  9. Ash – 3.9%
  10. Fuse – 3.7%
  11. Loba – 3.4%
  12. Caustic – 3%
  13. Mirage – 2.9%
  14. Seer – 2.8%
  15. Gibraltar – 2.6%
  16. Rampart – 2.5%
  17. Wattson – 2.2%

  20. Mad Maggie – 1.7%
  21. Crypto – 1.6%

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.

Apex Legends dev confirms fix for Ranked stream-sniping issues coming soon

The Apex Legends devs have confirmed a fix for the exploit allowing Bronze players to stream-snipe in high-Ranked lobbies.

Published

on

Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that they’re currently working on a fix for the exploit that allows bronze Apex Legends accounts to stream-snipe players in high-Ranked lobbies. 

Apex Legends players have dealt with their fair share of cheaters using frustrating exploits, such as the recent one that allowed players on Xbox consoles to completely crash the game’s servers.

Another exploit that’s particularly irritating is one that lets newly-made bronze accounts to immediately get into high-ranked lobbies to stream-snipe players. Now, Respawn Entertainment have responded to this issue.

In Ranked play, Apex Legends players have to play extremely well if they want to climb the ladder and access high-Ranked lobbies. However, cheaters were able to bypass this by using an exploit that lets them sneak into theses lobbies and take out the top players.

Pro player ‘HisWattson’ complained about this issue on Twitter, stating that it’s irritating to report cheaters only to encounter them again in different games. This caught the attention of the developers.

Apex’s Security lead Conor Ford confirmed that the devs are aware of the problem: “I can say that the bronze issue is currently being worked on as well so hopefully you won’t be seeing that soon.”

He didn’t provide any details about when exactly this fix will be implemented in the game, but it’s reassuring to know that Respawn Entertainment are aware of the problem and are currently looking into it.

This exploit allows previously-banned players to pop up and start causing problems in high-ranked lobbies. Hopefully, the Apex Legends update patch containing the fix for the exploit will arrive soon.

Apex Legends split date: Season 13 ranked map rotation, rank reset, & rewards

For those wondering what the split date is for the current season of Apex Legends, here are all the details you need to know.

Published

on

Every season Apex Legends has a halfway-ranked split which resets player rank and also changes the map to keep things fresh. Here are all the details for Apex Legends Season 13’s split date.

The Apex Legends Season 13 split gives players a small mid-season reset to freshen things up. As well as a new map for Ranked Leagues, players will also experience a soft reset, motivating them to get back into playing ranked for either battle royale or Arenas.

For those interested in knowing more about the split, including the date it will occur, map change, how far your rank will be reset, and the kind of rewards you can expect, here’s our guide on the Apex Legends split date.

Apex Legends Season 13 split date

The Apex Legends split for Season 13 will take place on June 28 at around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT.

On this date, not only will the map change for Ranked Leagues, but a player’s rank for both Battle Royale Ranked Leagues and Ranked Arenas will be soft reset.

The Apex Legends 13.1 patch also detailed some changes for Ranked that will be seen in the second split for Season 13.

Rank reset

In order to keep things fresh and exciting through the season, the Apex Legends halfway split changes the ranked map and also resets a player’s rank by four divisions.

This means that if you finished the first split at Platinum IV, you will be reset back to Gold IV.

Map rotation

For the second split of Apex Legends Season 13, Ranked Leagues will be changing its map from Storm Point to World’s Edge up until the end of the season.

Many consider World’s Edge to be Apex Legend’s best map for ranked, so those who are yet to experience the map in Ranked Leagues are in for a treat.

Ranked rewards

The reward you receive at the start of the next season will be based on your highest rank achieved in either of the two splits.

For example, if you achieve Diamond rank in Split 1 but don’t play in Split 2, you will still receive the rewards for Diamond rank at the start of the next season. Keep in mind that to gain the rewards for the Apex Predator rank you must retain the rank until the split ends.

Players will obtain a shiny badge if they are able to achieve the same rank across the two splits within a season.

Here are the following rewards for each rank:

  • Bronze – Badge & Holospray
  • Silver – Badge & Holospray
  • Gold – Badge, Holospray, & Weapon Cosmetic
  • Platinum – Badge, Holospray, & Weapon Cosmetic
  • Diamond – Badge, Holospray, Weapon Cosmetic, & Season-Long Dive Trial
  • Master – Badge, Holospray, Weapon Cosmetic, & Season-Long Dive Trial
  • Apex Predator – Badge, Holospray, Weapon Cosmetic, & Season-Long Dive Trial

That’s all for the Apex Legends split date, map rotation, rewards, & rank reset for Season 13. For more, check out the major changes for Control in the Awakening Collection Event update.

Respawn confirm fix for frustrating Apex Legends Xbox input delay

The Apex Legends developers have addressed the Xbox input delay issue that has been causing frustration, claiming that a fix is on the way.

Published

on

Xbox players have been experiencing some pretty awful input delay issues for Apex Legends, as Respawn finally address the problem.

Apex Legends Season 13 has been an eventful season for Xbox players. Not only was there a severe exploit that allowed Xbox players to completely crash servers, subsequently ruining ranked matches, but now there is another issue.

Ever since the Apex Legends 13.1 patch, Apex Legends players on Xbox have been complaining about input delay which is making the game unplayable.

Respawn have now addressed the complaints, mentioning the issue in a Twitter post on June 27.

Xbox players have had their experience plagued by input delay issues ever since the Apex Legends 13.1 patch, which is a shame as it has hindered the experience of the Awakening Collection Event and return of Control.

Although it isn’t affecting all players on Xbox, it’s extremely frustrating for those who are experiencing the issue, as the input delay puts the players at such a disadvantage that it isn’t even worth playing.

The devs originally addressed the issue on June 22, tweeting that they were “still working on a fix.” Despite this, players have still been experiencing the issue, wondering when exactly this fix will be coming.

Now, on Jun 27, Respawn Entertainment chimed in and put another tweet out to let Xbox players know that a fix is still being worked on for this issue.

The devs state that they are “continuing to investigate” the input delay issue, but do not give the community an idea of when a fix will be coming. This suggests that the issue has been difficult to solve.

It’s unclear when this problem will be resolved, but hopefully, the devs can get it fixed as soon as possible, especially as the halfway split for Season 13 is set for June 28.


For updates, stay tuned as we will be refreshing this piece with the latest information. For now, check out the leaked Apex Legends Gaiden event.
