The Best Squad to Use in Ranked Apex Legends Season 12

What is Ranked Apex Legends?

Apex Legends is a free-to-play shooter that offers two general categories of play – quick play and ranked. In the former, there’s nothing on the line, and stress is generally low. This is considered the casual mode. In ranked, you earn points by getting kills or assists, plus a bonus for earning a good placement. Ranked is where you go to show your Apex dominance!

In Season 12 of Apex Legends, there are plenty of legends who have a strong kit. If you want to increase your chances of winning more ranked games, you’ll need a well-rounded team. This ensures your squad can consistently earn ranked points and progress through the ladder as quickly as possible.

Here are the best legends to use to rank up in Season 12 of Apex Legends!

Best Defensive Legend for Season 12 – Gibraltar

The big boi continues to be the strongest defensive legends this season. His dome of protection is a literal lifesaver when your team is fighting out in the open, and he gives your team more chances to pull off revives. Additionally, Gibby’s ultimate is great for zoning off enemies to deny them space and can be a great way to confirm kills on damaged opponents.

While Gibraltar has one of the largest hitboxes in Apex Legends, his Fortified passive helps slightly by reducing incoming damage. He is also one of the toughest legends to 1v1 since his gun shield blocks a bunch of bullets.

If you enjoy being the defensive tank on your team, learn to play Gibraltar effectively in Season 12!

Best Movement Legend for Season 12 – Valkyrie

Valk is a double threat in Apex given her high mobility combined with the additional knowledge she provides her team. By highlighting enemies while in flight, your team will more easily identify where enemy teams are. This info helps put your squad in a better position to plan intelligent rotations around the map and capitalize on straggler opponents caught out of position.

Valkyrie has solid movement that allows her to quickly take high ground or disengage from a fight. You need to manage the fuel of her jetpack to get the most of her mobility potential.

Separately, Valkyrie is the best legend for covering a large amount of ground in Apex Legends. This is especially important on the Olympus map since the terrain is so wide open. Use the Valk ult to get out of sticky situations or as a tool for scouting out opposing threats. Make sure to initiate her flight pattern from behind cover to avoid being gunned down by nearby opponents.

Bloodhound has been strong for a long time, and they retain their recon dominance in Season 12.  By scanning points of interest, Bloodhound can alert their team to nearby threats. Similarly, they can call out when it is safe to loot if nothing pops up on the scan.

Bloodhound’s passive is incredibly strong, giving your team knowledge not only of how recently a team was in the area, but also which direction they went! Since this passive ability is always available, you can consistently keep your team aware of immediate threats.

Lastly, Bloodhound becomes an absolutely terror when using their ultimate. It’s great for mobility, improved recon, and can be used both offensively and defensively. Hound is a great choice to grind ranked this season!
