In this article, we will talk about our favorite Battle Royal game, Apex Legends. It is one of the best Battle Royals ever created, with a very fast-paced gameplay and a unique cast of characters. This cast of characters, as ranked in this Apex Legends Tier List, is what we want to focus on today. Specifically, we are going to see what is considered good or bad.
If you are looking to expand your knowledge about the game, or you want to start the game but you don’t know that characters to focus on, don’t worry. After you finish this article, you should have a pretty clear idea of the state of the game and what works and what doesn’t.
What matters in Apex Legends.
If you have played even a little bit of Apex Legends, you will have noticed one thing – you must never, ever, stop moving. We don’t have the words to stress enough how important it is that you are in constant motion in this game. For various reasons. First of all, you have to evade the enemy’s bullets, that is pretty straightforward. You must also find loot, it is pointless to survive until the last circles if you haven’t found any good loot. You will be destroyed by the other teams that have been running around the map, upgrading their gear. When you move, it increases your chances of third-partying two teams that are already fighting. It is the easiest way to make sure that you get the gear you want, without putting yourself at too much risk. If you don’t third-party in this game, you should probably forget about the first-place finish.
As you can see, moving is important. So, it is logical, that the characters that have great mobility are the ones that are being preferred by the players. For example, Horizon or Pathfinder, are characters that can take advantage of every possible angle to attack an enemy. That’s what makes them so strong.
On the other hand, since staying in motion is so important, the characters that can limit the enemies’ ability to move around are great options. They might not move as well as the other characters, but they can make sure that the enemy will stay in one place, or at least stay away from where you don’t want them to go. Gibraltar or Caustic are the biggest examples of this.
But if you have been paying attention, you could already guess another important factor that makes some characters especially good. That is, their ability to locate the enemies’ position and create chaos. Bloodhound and Crypto are great at spotting enemies from a safe distance, giving their team a significant advantage.
So, lets answer our main question.
What makes a character strong in Apex Legends?
To conclude, the things that make a Legend in this game be considered strong are Mobility, Mobility Counter, and recognizance skills.
As you see, the thing that we didn’t mention in this article, and is a characteristic that some characters have in Apex Legends is defensive skills. For example, Rampart or Wattson are 2 characters that are designed to find a spot and barricade it. This technique hasn’t worked for a long time in Apex Legends. As we made clear, this game is all about mobility, and these Legends, seem to be going against the natural flow of the game.
So if you want to increase your win-rate, we would suggest you to pick the characters with great mobility that are able to take advantage of the games mechanics. And of course, you need to improve your aim, but that probably goes without saying!
