Apex Legends Stats – The Best Characters for Winning (Updated)

The community website play-apex.net has put together some cool stats from Apex Legends. As the game has no official leader-board or stats, as of now, this site has been analyzing data from hundreds of thousands of games by looking at trackers value. 

Choosing the best character in Apex Legends or wanting to know which one has the highest win rate has been a guessing game, until now.

Here you’ll find actual data, which probably will give a reliable indicator of what the real numbers are (the website has analyzed over 1 million games, that’s a quite large sample). 

Let’s dive into the numbers!

To be expected, Wraith is the most popular Apex Legends characters but also the legend with the highest win rate. With the recent discussion of Wraith having the smallest hitbox, this might be one of the reasons why.

Gibraltar and Caustic are placing in either 8th or 9th and is known to have the most prominent hitboxes. Of course, it’s impossible to say why they are the least favorite characters, but it seems like hitboxes is an important question for the Apex players.

Hopefully, Patch v1.1.1 will change this as both Gibraltar and Caustic is gaining a new fortified’s passive ability which reduces damage taken by 10%.

Pathfinder’s hitbox has also been up for discussion (which has now been fixed). But it seems it didn’t affect the popularity and win rate as much as the other two prior to that.

Apex Legends Most Popular Characters

At the time of checking, there was 1,154,861 games tracked. The most popular character in Apex Legends according to their website are as follows:

WRAITH
22.2%
LIFELINE
16.4%
PATHFINDER
16%
OCTANE
15.1%
BANGALORE
13%
BLOODHOUND
6.3%
MIRAGE
4.9%
CAUSTIC
3.7%
GIBRALTAR
2.5%
That’s quite an impressive amount of data. Even with the Battle Pass and it’s weekly survival bonuses the difference is great between Wraith and Gibraltar.

However, season 1 is far from over so we might see the gap grow smaller as many players have maxed out their characters towards the end.
