Our Apex Legends legend tier list for October 2022 is here to break down which of the game's 22 characters are the best to use in Season 14.
As the meta currently stands, there remains a wide range of legends to dominate with in Apex Legends, as usual. However, that's not to say players haven't continued to figure out which legends are slightly better than each other after the Beast of Prey Collection Event patch. Here is how the legends stack up in Apex Legends: Hunted in October 2022.
Apex Legends October 2022 Legend Rankings
Kicking off the list are the two legends that have really thrust themselves ahead of the rest of the pack this season. Seer's seemingly endless amount of wallhack utility and ability to interrupt revives, healing and more has finally pulled Bloodhound out of the S Tier. Meanwhile, Horizon appears to be a no-brainer pick for aggressive players, as her tactical and ultimate abilities are just so powerful.
In A Tier are nine legends that are certainly none to scoff at as they remain solid picks for any squad. Gibraltar and Caustic continue to make every other character adapt to their moves. Despite the nerfs she received at the beginning of the season, Valkyrie mains have found themselves to be doing just fine after all. Bloodhound's wallhacks and speedhacks remain good, but are overshadowed by Seer. With a good hitbox and a portal, Wraith perhaps remains to be one of the best aggressive characters in the game along with Octane. The newbies, Newcastle and Vantage, each have solid kits that provide a breath of fresh air and fair rewards for those who try and master them. Remaining to be one of the most popular Legends in the game by far, Octane is undeniably fun to play for W-keyers.
These five Legends sit more in the middle of the pack, remaining viable in the right hands and being mediocre for most. Ash is pretty balanced overall, but doesn't have any abilities that truly pop as much as the other offensive legends' kits do. Wattson and Fuse are interesting opposites as the former helps her team get their shields back and the latter takes shields from everyone else. Loba is a straightforward character to master, and her low-impact ceiling is only worsened if there are more Lobas in the lobby. Crypto can be fun at times as he can give his team plenty of information with zone knowledge, but he's likely still the worst recon legend in the game.
Five legends that remain underwhelming picks in the meta, Revenant, Bangalore, Rampart, Lifeline and Mirage find themselves in the C Tier. Although there are always those who can find success with these Legends, these five are often the subject of conversations regarding potential buffs and reworks as they're either outclassed, or simply don't offer as much help to the team.
