All Characters, Perks, and Roles in Apex Legends

Characters in Apex Legends are now divided into five classes:

  • Assault
  • Controller
  • Recon
  • Skirmisher
  • Support.

While each character have their own individual abilities, their class will give them additional, exclusive perks starting in Season 16, giving teams the incentive to diversify who they play to get the maximum amount of bonuses during matches. Here is the entire roster, what class they belong to, and what perks they can take advantage of:


  • Ash
  • Bangalore
  • Fuse
  • Mad Maggie
  • Revenant

Assault characters have the ability to access Secret Compartments of Weapon Supply Bins that hold four pieces of various weapon attachments. Although, it will spawn a weapon with two attachments if no one on the team has a weapon. Assault characters can also carry more ammo per stack with one extra for Light, Heavy, and Energy ammo, while Shotgun and Sniper ammo have a reduced extra stack.


  • Caustic
  • Catalyst
  • Rampart
  • Watson

Controller characters can use Ring Consoles to find where the location of the next ring is. Ring Consoles are located in more grounded areas as opposed to Survey Beacons, which are placed in higher areas.


  • Bloodhound
  • Crypto
  • Seer
  • Vantage

Recon characters can use Modified Survey Beacons, which reveal all enemy positions on the map for 30 seconds. Pulsed enemies that are in range will be alerted when the beacon is used.


  • Horizon
  • Mirage
  • Octane
  • Pathfinder
  • Valkyrie
  • Wraith

Skirmisher characters can spot incoming Care Packages as they fall or on the ground in range, and view the highest value items in them. The items can be pinged for the entire team, and items that have been taken by other teams will be highlighted in grey.


  • Gibraltar
  • Lifeline
  • Loba
  • Newcastle

Support characters can craft Ally Banners at 30 Crafting Materials, even if the banners have expired, and one banner will contain all recoverable teammates. Secret Compartments can now also be accessed on Blue Bins that contain four health or survival items, and it has an increased chance of Shield Batteries and Med Kits, Heat Shields (Outside Ring), and Mobile Respawn Beacon (Carrying Banner).
