This Apex Legends character is dominating high ranks, but lower-tier players are ignoring her
Reports of her demise were greatly exaggerated.
The legend changes in season 16 of Apex Legends were not kind to many of the most popular characters in the game. This included Horizon, a once-niche pick that rose up the pick-rate charts thanks to fun movement options in her Gravity Lift tactical and Spacewalk passive, as well as her popularity with the game’s top pros and streamers.
The season 16 changes, however, severely hampered one of her most popular uses in Apex: taking fights in her Gravity Lift. Players used to be able to rain bullets down on their enemies with perfect accuracy while strafing quickly from side to side, making her great for players that just wanted to hot-drop and fight as much as possible with plenty of one-vs-ones. That gun accuracy was nerfed, specifically adding spread to weapons fired while in the Skirmishers’ tactical.
