What is a ‘solo’ legend?

A ‘solo’ legend is a character with abilities that shine on solo use, whether it be solo queuing into a game or having a 1v1 when separated from your team we’re ranking the top 5 best ‘solo’ legends. 


5. Mad Maggie

What 1500 HOUR of Mad Maggie looks like.

Shotgun specialist Mad Maggie is ideal for close range fights with the ability to take down teams by herself. With an ability that is primarily focused on damage dealing and speed, when used in the right hands she is one of the hardest legends to fight.

What makes Mad Maggie a great solo legend?

  • Movement: With a speed boost when holding a shotgun and an additional speed boost when using her ultimate she makes for a slippery legend allowing the user to take minimal damage when facing full squads.
  • Ease of Use: With relatively easy to use abilities in a multitude of different spots her abilities especially shine when fighting multiple enemies at once. Whether it's putting a drill on the wall or using her ultimate to steam through a squad her abilities are always useful in fights.
  • Capabilities: Mad Maggie’s capabilities for close-range fights are unmatched. With a stun inducing ultimate allowing for an easy knock, or her drill that melts through players trying to hide behind a doorway her destructive power is immense.

Choose Mad Maggie if you like wiping squads solo…

  • Escape: When facing a squad by yourself you’ll typically find yourself having to constantly heal. Mad Maggie’s abilities capitalize on this aspect with speed boosts and damage inducing abilities to make sure your opponents don't have a chance to revive.
  • Destructiveness: Mad Maggie is a beast at dishing damage, with 2 damage abilities and a passive that allows for quicker movement making knocking players and resetting much easier.
  • Trickery: Whether it be a low level squad or a squad of high level players it usually isn’t easy to wipe a squad which makes some mind games needed. With an ultimate/cue that can break doors you can catch your enemy off guard quite often making fights much easier.


4. Pathfinder


Pathfinder has some of the best mobility out of all the legends in apex allowing for quick positioning and the ability to prevent enemy escape. With the class’s abilities allowing the user to get to anywhere on the map in a fast manner, Pathfinder is one of the best for running solo.
