Highlights
Octane and Pathfinder have found themselves in the top three characters in Apex Legends Season 15.
At higher ranks, Horizon continues to be the go-to option with a 23.5% pick rate.
Pathfinder is considered a mediocre legend by many but in the right hands, he can offer movement capabilities like no one else in the game.

Apex Legends Season 15 is underway and the meta has seen a subtle shift in recent weeks. With Ranked Trios being hosted on the new Broken Moon map, legend usage has shifted in favor of more aggressive picks that can secure early Ranked Points (RP) through kills and assists. Endgame legends like Caustic and Gibraltar are not as popular right now due to the ranked system forcing players to take early fights which often leads to quick matches that end in three or four rounds a lot of the time instead of going to the final circle. 

Most Popular Legends in Apex Legends Season 15

Octane has taken over the number one spot and has displaced Wraith. Pathfinder is also quite popular right now despite being considered by many as one of the weaker legends in the game. His fun factor and playmaking potential in the right hands has propelled him to the number three spot. Here are the current Apex Legends pick rates for Season 15.

  • Octane - 11%

Here are the top three legends in Predator according to Apex Legends Season 15 pick rates:

Horizon: Horizon who is also lovingly called “space mom” by the community is still looking for her long-lost son but she has found herself at the top of the food chain in the Apex Games. With a 23.5% pick rate, she has displaced Wraith as the most-used legend in the game.

Pathfinder: The legend is seeing a resurgence among high-skilled players and he currently has a 16.5% pick rate. Broken Moon is one of Pathfinder’s best maps and some of the best players in the world are taking advantage of advanced movement tech that Pathfinder can enable.

Wraith: Wraith is the only Season 0 legend in the top three despite numerous nerfs to her kit over the years. She is still one of the best legends in the game thanks to her ability to create safe rotations, kidnap enemies, and get out of danger.
