Most picked Legends in Apex Legends Season 12
5. Pathfinder – 7.6%
Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 7.6%, and counting, for quite some time now.
As a Recon class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation. He consistently manages to stay in the top 5 as a result.
4. Bloodhound – 10.3%
Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 12.
Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark as a season goes on, and they currently stand at 10.3%. They are easily the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends, thanks to their tracking tools and incredible skills, plus, their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.
5. Valkyrie – 10.4%
It’s no surprise that Valkyrie is in the top 5 Legend pick rates for Season 12 with 10.4%, as she is the movement Queen. Her Jetpack Passive allows players to get out and in any kind of situation, which is crucial for survivability.
As well as her Passive, her Ultimate, Skyward Dive, is also great for mobility. This ability is the best rotational tool in all of Apex Legends, as it allows her and the team to relocate from a bad position or situation, into a good one.
Lastly, Valkyrie’s Tactical is also extremely useful for being aggressive and getting enemies out of camping spots, so long as you have enough room above you to launch the Missile Swarm.
2. Wraith – 11.4%
Another starting Legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she has taken the number two spot with an 11.4% pick rate in Season 12.
Wraith’s stand-out features are her ability to get out of trouble very quickly – teammates included. Her abilities allow her to sense danger, become temporarily invulnerable, and create portals to escape predicaments. It’s easy to see why Wraith continues to be an absolute fan-favorite in Apex Legends Season 12.
1. Octane – 12.7% –Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 12
With a 12.7% pick rate, the speed demon takes the number one spot, continuing his reign as one the most popular Legend in Season 12, fluctuating between the top two places.
Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense. Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attack and running away.
But most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.
That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 12. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, altering the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.
