Apex Legends tier list: A range of Apex characters charging towards the camera.

So, you’re trying out Apex Legends, or Apex Legends Mobile? You’ll need to know which legends and weapons are the top of the top if you want to keep up with the game’s ever-changing meta. That’s where we come in. We’ve put together this Apex Legends tier list for the current season, so you know exactly who are the best legends, and what are the top guns to pick. But remember, we maintain that you’re best off using what you’re comfortable with and what you enjoy – if your favourite weapon is the P2020 and your favourite character is Mirage, who are we to stop you (though, you might not win many matches).

Of course, if you want to learn more about the Legends themselves, you should check out our Apex Legends characters list. We also have a handy guide to both the current Apex Legends season, and the latest Apex Legends patch notes, so you can keep up to date with all the latest news.

Whether you want to have fun in public matches or climb the Apex Legends ranks, here are our picks in the form of an Apex Legends tier list.

Apex Legends Mobile tier list

With the stars of Apex Legends now on mobile, we’ve put together a tier list for the eleven characters currently available. While we can be sure of most of them, we’re still a little in the dark when it comes to Fade, as we’ve had little playtime with the mobile-exclusive character. Of course, as more characters make the leap from console to Apex Legends Mobile, we’ll be sure to update this list.

S Bloodhound, Crypto, Bangalore
A Fade, Loba, Caustic, Rhapsody
