Apex Legends is a popular free-to-play online multiplayer battle royale game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. Set in the futuristic world of the Titanfall universe, Apex Legends delivers an adrenaline-pumping experience where players compete against each other in fast-paced, squad-based matches.
The game starts with 60 players, typically divided into squads of three, dropping onto a large map. Each player selects a unique character, known as a Legend, who possesses distinct abilities, playstyles, and personalities. With a diverse roster of Legends to choose from, including offensive, defensive, support, and recon characters, players can strategize and create synergistic team compositions.
This article will look at each of the offensive characters from the game, and I (WormsEverywhere) will be rating each legend based on a few different things. Firstly, we’ll look at each legend’s capabilities in terms of abilities and how useful they are in gameplay scenarios. Secondly, we’ll touch on their level of mobility (since the game often requires movement in large amounts). These two areas are extremely important in the game, so if you have never played before but are looking to start, keep reading to find out which character might be a good starter for you! Finally, and this is the most important characteristic in my opinion, we will look at the hotness of each character, and of course, their overall smashability.
*Note* None of this is actually based on the LORE behind each character. This is basically just my general impression of the vibes I get from each of them.
For part one of this series, we will look at the Top 3 WORST offensive characters.
Coming in DEAD last, in 9th place is…
- Mad Maggie: I know people like her, but her abilities just do not seem useful to me. I don’t think I have EVER taken damage from a Mad Maggie drill or giant bowling ball. She’s one of those characters that you have to be really confident in using if you’re going to choose her, otherwise she’s a waste of a choice (in my opinion!)
Hotness: 5/10 (Definitely gives off masc vibes (which I kinda dig), but the gold tooth throws me off a little bit. I’m sure there are some skins that would make her hotter in my eyes, but I have yet to see it.)
- Warlord’s Ire (Passive): highlight enemies you damage, move faster with shotguns
- Riot Drill (Tactical): drill that burns enemies through obstacles
- Wrecking Ball (Ult.): a ball that detonates near enemies
- Ash: An emotionless cyber lady. Maybe I just don’t understand the hype - I know she’s supposed to be a badass, but in terms of character likability, I feel she is lacking. She’s like a more emotionless Wraith. I’m only rating her at 8th because I know that people tend to like her, and we have to sometimes give the people what they want (which in this case, is not DEAD last). Additionally though, her passive ability gives off loot-goblin vibes, and those are my favorite kind of vibes.
Hotness: 7/10 (Wouldn’t TRY to smash, but wouldn’t say no to being flirted with. She’s kind of slim thick, like, in a robot way.)
- Marked for Death (Passive): shows death boxes and surviving battle-winners.
- Ark Snare (Tactical): A spinning snare that damages opponents. It’s giving arc star, but slightly more powerful? She could have been given a way cooler ability.
- Phase Breach (Ult.): one way portal. So, like Wraith, but not as good because it only goes one way.
- Wraith: Yet another kind of emotionless, somewhat monotone lady. Mobility is good, making her a good choice for beginners. Her passive ability also makes her a good choice for beginners who might not recognize the telltale signs or sounds of danger without the warning.
Hotness: 7/10 (Slouching isn’t hot, Wraith. Please fix your posture. Objectively hot, though; she gives off Billie Eilish vibes a bit. Except for when she’s bald. It's not that she ISN'T hot when she's bald, she's just less Eilish-ish.)
- Voices from the Void (Passive): danger warnings
- Into the Void (Tactical): use a void to avoid damage while repositioning
- Dimensional Rift (Ult.): a portal from one point to another for the team to use; lasts 60 sec. Can travel back and forth.
