Apex Legends character guide is an important tool to help you choose which Legend you should play at any given time.
Sure, you can choose any character you want, but sometimes it's in the best interest to pick one that helps your team composition out and synergizes well with other picks.
Here's a helpful guide on which character to pick in Apex Legends.
Apex Legends Character Guide: Which Hero Should You Pick?
Here are the current characters available in Apex Legends:
The offensive heroes are Bangalore, Mirage and Wraith. The defensive characters are Gibraltar and Caustic. The supportive characters are Lifeline, Pathfinder and Bloodhound. Octane can be classified as a support or offense character based on the way he's played.
Generally, if two teammates ahead of you pick two offensive heroes, picking a support or defense character to balance out and provide utility is a good notion to follow. Also, picking an offensive hero when a team goes too defensive or supportive stacked is imperative.
Now, in terms of characters who are worth picking regardless, only a few fall into that definition. The main option being Lifeline due to her care package ultimate and ability to heal both teammates at once.
Other strong picks include Bangalore because of her grenade launcher and artillery strike. Wraith, Octane and Pathfinder are also all solid if you want to pick for comfort, or if you're picking first.
