Apex Legends professional player Brandon ‘aceu’ Winn recently went live ranking the different characters in-game according to their usefulness.

Previously, aceu has referred to Seer as useless when it came to a true competitive match space. He explained that Seer was only good for “third-partying” — or cleaning up a mess made by two teams following a firefight. Now, however, in what appears to be a major flip in opinion, aceu ranked Seer over Bloodhound in terms of value to a team composition.

Seer Has “More Value“ Than Bloodhound, says aceu

“I think [Bloodhound] is B tier,” he said during a livestream broadcast from his verified Twitch channel on June 13, “You get more value out of Seer than you do Bloodhound.”

He goes on to explain that in situations where players are looking to “kill everybody” in a match, then Bloodhound may be exactly what they’re looking for. Otherwise, it would be best to go with Seer in the current Ranked meta as he’s better at finding out exactly where other players may be holed up.

Obviously, this is a situational choice. Those who need to figure out where they should be heading for the next fight may find it more valuable to run Seer. Meanwhile, those who need the extra firepower to take them down fully should pick Bloodhound — especially with their low cooldowns.
