Best team builds in Apex Legends
Apex Legends’ Ranks have been reset and Kings Canyon is back in the Second Division of Season 10.
If you are looking to become Platinum, Diamond or beyond, here are some of the best team lineups that will make your climb easier.
Valkyrie, Gibraltar, Caustic
This team composition has become dominant in the current competitive meta for good reason. All three characters offer excellent utility on their own, as their abilities combine to create superior movement, survivability, and damage.
For starters, Gibraltar remains the best defensive character in the game, making him almost a must-have choice if players want to have an easier time in the ranked lobbies. He can push for free with his passive, the weapon shield, reducing the need for healing items and making it easier to level his Evo shield. Gibraltar’s tactic, her bubble shield, provides a full reset for a team under pressure, allowing their team to fully heal or revive. It also serves as a repositioning tool when launched and can instantly repair disastrous flare-ups or retreats. Caustic’s Gas also combines well with Gibraltar’s Bubble Shield, creating a bulwark against attacks from more aggressive teams, such as builds that use Revenant and Octane. Finally, Gibraltar’s ultimate all-rounder can be used to defend against enemy pushes, as a finishing blow on weakened opponents, or as a zoning tool.
Valkyrie is the scout for this roster, used to gather information and make quick spins. In combat, his missiles can harass players in cover, and his VTOL jets allow him to take advantage of angles most other Legends can’t reach. As a scout character, she can also scan beacons, revealing the next ring, which is incredibly valuable. But the strongest part of his kit for this composition is his ultimate. It works like a no-get-out card in a variety of different scenarios. If an entrenched defensive position is compromised, or the team is prevented from entering the ring or through a narrow choke point on the map, a quick final Valkyrie fixes an issue that will often end play for others. teams. Once in the air, Valkyrie continues to gain information about the position of other squads, allowing the team to land in a safe place. Finally, Gibraltar’s Bubble combines perfectly with Valk’s Ultimate, allowing teams to drop a bubble in the middle of an open field if they need to and safely exit an entire area of the map for a position. superior.
Caustic has remained strong through the most recent changes to the meta. His gas canisters can be used defensively for area denial, where they both damage players who stray too close and obscure the vision of potential enemies. Cans can block doors and even provide minimal coverage in exposed spaces. They work almost as well as an offensive tool when launched into enemy territory. Caustic’s Nox gas can repel enemies, prevent them from invading a defensive position like a building, or kill them outright in confined spaces. In small circles late in the game, Caustic becomes oppressive.
Revenant, Octane, Bloodhound
If you’re looking for a more aggressive build that can rack up death points, spin quickly, and overwhelm unsuspecting enemies, this build is still very strong in ranked play. While he may lack survivability, especially in Kings Canyon where it seems like third parties spoil the fun more often, he shines on offense.
The roster of the team is built around the controversial Revenant / Octane combination, commonly referred to as RevTane, where Revenant’s ultimate Death Totem is used in conjunction with Octane’s Jump Pad. Players activate Revenant’s Ultimate, then immediately pick up Octane’s Jump Pad to engage in a fight, usually looking for at least one quick knockdown on the opposing team. Revenant may also seek to silence defenders’ abilities with his tactics, leaving them unable to properly reset defenses or escape.
If players are killed in their shadow form, they can resume combat almost immediately with Octane’s Jump Pad. Defenders, usually unprepared for the initial attack, must survive two separate waves of pushes, often leading to a clean mop for attackers.
This strategy has had vocal detractors since the combination became popular. Many players think this is a cheap tactic, or that it’s too quiet, which means it’s hard or impossible to hear a RevTane coming in until it’s too late. But if you want to rank, you better not dwell on what is fair to others. It may not be expensive, but it is effective. And if the pros have a hard time defending themselves against RevTane, chances are players from the more laid back lobbies will have a hard time as well.
Since this strategy is a bit of a niche and works on its own as a duo, there are several other Legends that can serve as a viable third character in this composition. It’s a matter of preference. A quick Wraith portal can make failed RevTane pushes safer against easy retaliation. Gibby adds a lot of defensive value to a lineup that could use it. Even the tactics of Lifeline, his healing drone, can help RevTane teams heal after being sent back to the Death Totem.
Bloodhound, Octane, Gibraltar
It is an efficient and well-balanced team composition that has proven itself time and time again. Bloodhound offers sweep, Octane provides quick moves and rotations, and Gibraltar is the defensive core of the team. This combination can also be played with variations on the same idea. While Seer is no longer the powerhouse he was when the character first came out, he’s still deadly in the hands of a decent player, and his scanning abilities make him an easy replacement for Bloodhound. Wraith’s portal offers a more deliberate and less aggressive alternative to Octane’s jumping mat. Aggressive squads who feel comfortable without Gibraltar’s bubble shield can even use Caustic in this setup.
Octane’s Jump Pad recently received a little nerf, but its movement is still more forgiving than Wraith, whose less frequent final portal requires some finesse. Likewise, Bloodhound is easier to use than Seer right now, and Bloodhound’s scan combines more effectively with Octane’s Jump Pad. But variations on that theme will continue to work well in the Season 10 lobbies. They’re a fundamentally strong team.
However you tweak or replace these lineups to suit your playstyle, if you want ranked lobbies to go well, it’s important that every team has a loophole – that is, at least a character who can safely steer the team away from bad, short-term situations. Outside of that requirement, there are a lot of valuable choices well outside of what is considered meta. The composition of the teams is ultimately a matter of preference for all except the most qualified players. Rampart’s recent buffs have made him feel fresh and fun to play. Fuse is feeling just as good right now. If you work a lot, enjoying the games you play is probably more important than making sure your team has the perfect synergy.
