Apex Legends’ 3v3 mode, Arenas, forces an isolated way to play the battle royale which causes some Legends to be more useful than others, so we ranked them all to help you decide on team composition.
There’s a great variety of game modes to choose from in Apex Legends, and while you might be tempted to test your skill in the Ranked Leagues for Season 14, Arenas is also a great place for some competition.
Figuring out what Legend to use in Arenas can be a difficult decision, especially when the 3v3 mode is so different from the standard battle royale mode.
With that being said, we ranked all the Legends in Apex according to their viability in the 3v3 mode. Here are the best Legends to use in Arenas.
Best Legends in Apex Legends Arenas for Season 14
Keep in mind that this tier list is solely based on a Legend’s contribution to the team within Arenas, not Respawn‘s battle royale mode. If you’re interested in the best Legends to use for battle royale, check out our piece here:
Remember, due to the nature of Arenas, some of the Legends’ abilities are deemed much less effective, like Loba‘s Black Market. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use them if you would like to, as they can still be great as long as you hit your shots!
- Mad Maggie
Top 3 Legends for Arenas
3. Mad Maggie
After receiving some pretty big buffs in the Apex Legends Season 14 update, Mad Maggie has surged in popularity and quickly become one of the best Legends in the game.
Her ability to damage players behind cover with the Riot Drill and gain momentum and speed with her Ultimate makes her a great pick in Arenas, especially for aggressive teams.
Another reason she’s exceptionally good in Arenas is her Passive, which makes her strafe and move speed faster when she’s holding a shotgun, which is a great close-range choice in the 3v3 mode.
Newcastle was Season 13’s brand-new Legend, and not only does he perform very well in the battle royale, but he also dominates in Arenas, hence why he is at the number two spot.
Newcastle’s Passive shield revive is extremely strong for getting teammates back into the fight, especially if you purchase a Gold Knockdown Shield. His Tactical mobile shield is also great for Arenas, as it allows your team to push and put pressure on the enemy team while being behind moving cover.
Lastly, his Ultimate, Castle Wall, can be bought every round, and although it’s quite expensive, the defensive protection and offensive capabilities of blocking off paths and creating advantageous cover in positions of power are extremely powerful.
Lifeline is a great option for Arenas, mainly due to her ability to keep teammates alive and get more health consumables from Loot Bins.
Lifeline’s health drone can get you or a teammate back to full health without the need to pop a syringe or medkit, which could save precious time. Further, although her Ultimate is fairly useless, her Passive drone revive is arguably her best trait for Arenas.
Combine this with the Gold Knockdown Shield and you’ll be reviving teammates back with shield and health, which allows them to get right up and help out. This is unbelievably clutch and also the main reason she is number one on our ranked list.
That’s it for our Apex Legends Arenas ranked list. For more on Apex Legends, check out when the split date is for Apex Legends Season 14.
