Octane continues to be popular despite being considered as one of the weaker legends in the game in terms of team utility. Here are the current pick rates in Apex Legends Season 16 based on data from .
Mad Maggie: 2.5%
The meta in Master/Predator is quite different with Pathfinder taking the lead. Here are the top three legends in Apex Legends Season 16.
Pathfinder: The legend is seeing a resurgence among high-skilled players. He currently has a high pick rate due to his high mobility and new Zipline which allows for better rotations than before.
Wraith: Wraith is the only Season 0 legend in the top three despite numerous nerfs to her kit over the years. With some minor buffs to her kit arriving in Season 16, she continues to dominate the highest ranks.
Bangalore: She has displaced Horizon’s dominance in the meta thanks to her Smoke Launcher being capable of shutting down controller aim assist. Even in the pro scene players are using Bangalore’s Smokes to counter the disparity between controller and mouse and keyboard players.
