Season 10 is one of Apex Legends’ biggest ever seasons, and it’s welcomed the popular character Seer. But who has the highest pick rates in Season 10 of the battle royale shooter?

Apex Legends hit the ground running when it launched with eight different characters to choose from in its new battle royale offering. The game suffered a notable lull when Call of Duty: Warzone launched, but with many players now jumping ship to Respawn’s game, Apex Legends Season 10 is arguably one of its biggest ever!

There are now a whopping 18 different Legends to choose from, giving players a headache before each game. The newest one is Seer, and after a dominating start to Season 10, the 1.78 update has seen him receive a significant nerf. This has completely changed the game’s pick rates and made the Season 10 meta open again.

Between the Arenas mode and Ranked Leagues to compete in, thousands of matches have already been logged in Season 10, and we will break down and find the Legends with the highest pick rates in Season 10.

5. Pathfinder – 8.1%

A beneficiary of the Seer nerfs, Pathfinder has become a part of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 8.1%.

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.

4. Seer – 8.5%

In our last update to this article, Seer was the top dog with a fearsome 17.7% pick rate! But Seer has now succumbed to the promised nerfs and has seen his pick rate plummet to 8.5%.

His Focus of Attention ability caused some controversy due to its ease with which it could cancel reviving, and his Ultimate ability creates a huge tracking dome that allows you to see the locations of enemy players.

He’s still effective if used correctly, but he’s looking over his shoulder as the devs have promised: “more Seer nerfs to counter Apex Legends wall-hack meta.”

He also has other nifty tricks such as being able to make his Exhibit Ultimate stronger.

3. Bloodhound – 9%

Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 10.

With nearly a 12% pick rate at the beginning of Season 9, Bloodhound has dipped a bit to 9% but still remains the third-most picked Legend. Their pick rate is rising slowly thanks to the alterations to Seer, meaning that Bloodhound is the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends.

Their tracking tools and skills are incredible, and the fleet of foot provided by their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.

2. Wraith – 11.6%

Another starting legend, Wraith possessed a very high pick rate of nearly 14% during Season 9 and is still currently well-selected backed at 11.6%.

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 10.

1. Octane – 16.2%

The king is back on his throne as the game’s number one pick. Although his pick rate isn’t quite in the 20% region like in Season 9, presumably because of Seer’s arrival, he’s still undisputedly the primary selection at 16.2%.

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.

You can use this to sneak attack players, reach high-up spots for beacons, escape battles, or use it as a way to get back into the playing zone.


That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 10. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, affecting the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.

We’ll be sure to keep this updated regularly so you can stay on top of the in picks, and don’t forget to check out our tier list of every Apex Legends weapon.
