So, you’re trying out Apex Legends. 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. 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 favorite weapon is the P2020 and your favorite 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.
