Our Apex Legends' legends tier list for December 2020 is here to keep players up to date on who the best characters are as the meta evolves in Season 7.

Now that some time has passed since Horizon entered the fray, is there finally a challenger to Wraith's reign over the Outlands? Here's how we believe things have shaken out among the Apex Games' 15 legends before we enter the new year.

Apex Legends' Legends Tier List December 2020

S Tier

  • Wraith
  • Gibraltar
  • Bloodhound

As stated by the devs themselves, Apex Legends is all about knowing when to engage, how to move before and during fights, and working together with your team. As such, these three legends are crowned champions more often than not. While it appears Respawn Entertainment has more nerfs planned for Wraith coming up, she remains at the heart of what Apex Legends is about. Gibby and Bloodhound are also widely used at all levels of play thanks to their abilities to defend against third parties and adapt on the fly.

A Tier

  • Crypto
  • Pathfinder
  • Lifeline
  • Horizon

Often flying under the radar, Crypto has such a large skill gap that in the right hands, his kit can be scary. Season 7 has fixed Pathfinder's grapple cooldown, making him a great pick for a game that depends so much on movement. Lifeline remains a failsafe option for any thanks to her ability to res and defend. While her ultimate may not be the best, Horizon is a fun legend to use and basically does Octane's job better thanks to her tactical.

B Tier

  • Revenant
  • Caustic
  • Wattson
  • Bangalore

With the addition of Olympus, these four legends sit more in the middle of pack, but remain very viable in the right hands. Revenant is a third-party king, Caustic and Wattson are able to seize and control ground, and Bangalore is still a solid pick up and play legend.

C Tier

  • Mirage
  • Loba
  • Octane
  • Rampart

While there are always those who can find success with these legends, these four are often found in the bottom of tier lists as they're either outclassed, very situational, or simply don't offer too much to help the team.
