Apex Legends Season 6 has already started, and for me, it’s the best season yet. Unlike the past few seasons, where we had seen minor changes. This one has not only updated the entire legends lineup but also added two new entries that we never heard of before.
With these drastic changes, I think it’s a good time to look at the Apex Legends Season 6 tier list. However, before we do that, here are a few things you should note.
Firstly the tier list isn’t official. They are strictly opinion driven by each player. Further, If you like a particular legend and that is below Tier B. There is nothing wrong with that, and you should comfortably use him. Besides, most of the ranks on our list are determined from various polls, and we haven’t subjected any legend personally. This guide will also be helpful for competitive players, who are looking for tier’s to assemble their teams.
Tier A Plus
Wraith has always been the first choice legend for many pro and casual players. The legend hasn’t received any significant changes over the past six seasons. Recently, she got a buff in which her tactical void cooldown is reduced to 25 seconds. On top of that, she can now also see enemies during her tactical.
Wraith’s passive is the voice from the void. The void tells you if you are close to an enemy, or if there is a trap ahead and a lot of cautious stuff like that. Her tactical is called into the void, which speeds her for four seconds and the screen turns greyscale. During this four-second speed boost, she is invulnerable, and enemies are visible. The tactical can be used to reposition, attack enemies, or defend in tight spaces.
The Ultimate is perhaps the best in the game for me. Players can spawn two portals in 75 meters distance. Once the portal is placed, anybody can enter it and come on the other side. The Ultimate is useful in a lot of scenarios. You can place it to revive your teammates on the other side or use it as bait for incoming enemies. Further, it can also be used to reposition and rotate. There are just endless things you can do with her ultimate, but to conclude, I’d say it’s still the best in the game. Wraith’s ultimate takes 210 seconds to load, and the portal lasts for 60 seconds. Along with these all special abilities, the best thing about wraith is that she has a low profile. In other words, she has a low hitbox and landing a bullet on someone who is using Wraith is no easy thing to do.
One of the most potent Legends in Season 6 is Bloodhound. He was always mighty, and with the new Buff in Season 6, his abilities have now gone to the next level. Bloodhound can now scan beacons, and this puts pathfinder and crypto to rest. Besides, his ultimate has also gotten a few changes. Whenever you start “Beast of the hunt”, instead of 25 seconds, you will now be able to scan every 6 seconds. I’ve called out a lot of players for wall hacking, to realise later it was the new 6 seconds scan.
Along with these two, Bloodhound Ultimate now lasts forever. That is to say, If you knock an enemy, your ultimate timer gets an additional 15 seconds. As a result, if you are good at the game and you keep getting kills. The ultimate is just always there.
Apart from his buff in Season 6, Bloodhound still has the same tactical. Players can use Eye of the Allfather to highlight enemy traps, loot, clues, and hostiles. Moreover, his Passive tracker is still useful, allowing players to see various markers highlighting enemy tactics.
The giant beast Gibraltar is still worth using in Apex Legends. One of the main reasons why I love Gibraltar so much is the fact that it has a huge armour and he can endure a lot of damage. Although a lot of players will say he is defensive-minded, I think he is the most balanced legend providing options in both attack and defence.
Gibraltar’s primary abilities suitable for passive playstyle is his Dome of Protection. He throws a huge dome shield, that can withstand enemy bullets for 12 seconds. Also, he also has Gun Sheild, attached right next to the gun that will save your upper body from bullets while being inconsistent fights. The ultimate ability that makes him suitable for the attack is Defensive Bombardment. Whenever you decide to push your enemies, the defensive bombardment will drop dozens of smoke grenades and explosives.
To sum it up, Gibraltar is worth using in both squads and duos. He has slight drawbacks, like being spotted quickly. Further, his gun shield can only last a few bullets, and movement isn’t the smoothest.
Crypto is becoming immensely popular. Every game, you will find one crypto in each team. The thing with Crypto is that he is mighty. With the new buff in Season 6, he can now revive teammates and hit survey beacons without being even close to them. Other than that, his previous ability of scanning nearby enemies, traps, and supply bins are still consistent. Crypto’s ultimate is still one of the best in the game. Players can charge up an EMP Blast, and not only deal 50 shield damage but also disable various traps and slow down enemies. Last but not least, Crypto can still access the 12 survey beacons around the map and predict the circle without making much effort.
Revenant recently made its mark in Season 4 after killing Forge. He is one of the smartest and stealthy legends around. His tactical ability is called silence, which does not mean being silent. It’s a small grenade device that you have to land at enemies. Once you hit the enemies, the device damages 10 HP and also disables the enemy abilities for 20 seconds. Revenant’s passive ability is stalker, which allows him to crouch walk faster.
On top of that, he can also climb buildings twice as higher as other legends. This can be very useful for picking up sniper spots, or escaping enemies. Revenant’s ability to climb twice as higher is also the primary reason why Octane is ranked so lower.
The ultimate ability of reverent is what separates him from the rest of the characters. He spawns a Death Totem that ultimately transforms the character into a shadow. The shadow can attack enemies and do all the usual stuff, but it only lasts 30 seconds. To clarify, if the shadow is killed, you simply return to the place where Death Totem was spawned. Revenant abilities are useful in all sorts of format
It was pretty hard to rank lifeline, mainly because there’s always so much debate about her. Still, it’s worth noting that B is not a bad rank. Lifeline is a supporting character, having most of the abilities circled medic. Her tactical calls a drone that heals every teammate within 3 meters. This is really handy, because in most scenarios when your team is short on heals. Lifeline’s Heal Drone is always readily available to heal everyone.
Her Ultimate is a Care Package, that drops three high-quality attachments, gears, or other consumables. This package is no joke because it has three slots, and each slot is filled with useful items like body shields, syringes, and various scopes.
Lifeline received a very tactical buff this season. She can fight while reviving her teammates at the same time.
Not the most mobile legend in the game, but still Caustic gets the job done. He is best suited for close door fights and In my opinion. Caustic is the best legend for interiors. His tactical, Nox Gas Trap can be used to block various doors and hold off enemies. Other than that, his passive of taking 15% less damage from every attack is handy as well. Similarly, his ultimate, Nox Gas Grenade is also useful. It can be used to poison and block enemies in close range.
The problem with Caustic is that you won’t need him at all times. Players these days have found easy tackle for his tactical. They shoot the barrel from a distance and then run away. Other than that, teammates are never pleased when the Nox Gas Trap triggers and blurs their vision. Another critical thing to note is that Caustic is very easy to spot. He is enormous like Gibraltor, and in open areas where Caustic is slow. Enemies are easily able to take advantage.
Nonetheless, Caustic is still the best legend for holding interiors and destroying everyone in close range.
Despite, Wattson now being highly dependent on Ultimate Acceleration, thanks to the new 90 seconds timer. For me, Watson is still one of the best passive characters in the game. There is always a bit of debate whether Rampant is better than Watson, but In my opinion, Wattson edges Rampant with its fences.
The Fences are still impeccable, once deployed, there is nothing the enemy can do about it. Adequately, not only can you secure places, stop enemy rotations, but also trap enemies. Once the enemies are trapped, they are stunned for an extended period of time. In the later stages of the game, the fences are easily the best ability to secure circles.
One thing’s for sure, whenever you are using Wattson, always have Ultimate Acceleratant. Without that, she is boring.
Rampart is one of the latest legends additions to the game. She is another passive and team-oriented character. Rampart can quickly spawn up to 5 amp covers or shields. The shields block all the incoming fires, while nearly doubling the damage of all the outgoing bullets. Other than this, her ultimate is a machine gun called Sheila, which comes pre-occupied. Sheila is really powerful; it can destroy enemies within seconds. Further, it has a good range, and the recoil isn’t too bad. Rampart is not only good with Sheila, but also with all other LMG’s in the game.
The downside of her passive abilities is that both shield and machinegun take a heck of a time to be ready. Using her in solo is extremely difficult because one shot at the shield wipes out the entire process. Similarly, Rampart is extremely weak against aggressive legends like Crypto.
To conclude, I think Rampart is strictly a passive legend. Her abilities without good teammates are non-existent. Even with good teammates, her services aren’t always required.
Pathfinder was one of the best legends in the game. The character was mostly used to travel faster across the map. Other than this, he was also excellent in his ability to scan places, and In short, he was a very decent legend. With the Season 6 Update in Apex Legends, the character has been nerfed pretty severely. He is now only a shadow of his past. That is mainly because of the new 35 seconds grapple cool down. Further, his unique passive ability in the past to scan beacon isn’t unique anymore. Both Crypto and bloodhound are able to that in a much better fashion.
I think Pathfinder is a bit balanced now. In the past, the character was way overpowerful, and If Loba was to be added, Path definitely needed a nerf.
Banglore hasn’t been changed from I think season 2. Her ability to throw smokes is kind of the best support play in the game. For example. Whenever your teammate gets knocked out, you can throw smoke and revive him. Other than this, the smoke can also be used to get away from enemies. On top of its smoke ability, Banglore’s ultimate of dropping down missiles is also very useful.
In short, Banglore is pretty great with an excellent hitbox. I just feel that she needs a better ultimate. The missile thingy is old, and to be honest, you won’t see a lot of Banglore’s in the game anymore.
Perhaps the weakest and worst legend up until season 5, thanks to the nerf. Mirage is still struggling to find its place. Despite his impressive abilities to revive teammates faster, control decoy, and create clones. I think he brings little to no value to team play. When playing solo, Mirage is one of the best picks, but in competitive games, I don’t think your teammates will benefit anything from him. In my opinion, Mirage is a good supporting legend, but as for his contributions, he won’t bring any value other than reviving teammates invisibly.
If you are a loba main, which I think you won’t be. Loba is now the most useless Legend in the game. Her movement is slow, rigged, and unacceptable. Other than this, her ability to see loot through walls is not exceptional, because these days the majority of players are aware of loot spawns. The ultimate is pretty decent, but once again there is nothing impressive that would convince you to choose her over other legends. Loba hasn’t been nerfed or buffed over the past few seasons. I think she needs a complete overhaul.
Although Octane has a very sharp and excellent movement, his other abilities are a complete wreck. If we talk about the speed boost, that happens with the reduction of health, is unnecessary. Moreover, his ability to jump high and make a better tactical position isn’t any impressive. A lot of other legends can climb high ground without needing any capabilities. In my opinion, Octane is excellent for solo, as his aggressive movement will allow you to get rapid kills. Subsequently, for team play, I think Pathfinder is a better fit.
With Season 6, the total Legends in Apex Legends have now grown to 14. This is a kind of great news for both casual and competitive players. I’m a bit afraid if that much variety will have a slight disadvantage on the competitive side. For example, the majority of competitive FPS games have a simple meta. That is to say, there aren’t a lot of unique abilities, and the game is the same for all users. With so many Legends and individual skills, I think the Competitive side of Apex Legends will become very inconsistent. Some Legends are simply better over others. The best way to win games right now would be finding the right balance in your team. For solo’s, I’m sure everybody knows what Legend is mostly being used.
