How to draft in Apex Legends

Apex Legends Drafting guide

When drafting a team composition in Apex Legends, there are several key factors to consider in order to give your team the best chance of success.


Each member of your team should have a specific role to play, such as a designated medic, a scout, and a support player. Having a clear understanding of each team member's role will help ensure that everyone is working together effectively.


Each legend in Apex Legends has their own unique abilities and playstyle. Choosing the right legends for your team composition is crucial. For example, if your team lacks utility, choosing a legend like Octane or Bangalore can help fill that gap. Bangalore provides utility to the team with her Smoke Launcher ability, which creates a smoke screen that can be used to cover a team's movement or to obscure the enemy's vision.


Certain legends have abilities that complement each other well. For example, Gibraltar's Dome of Protection can provide cover for teammates while they revive a fallen ally, and Bloodhound's Eye of the Allfather can reveal enemies for the team to target. Bloodhound's Eye of the Allfather ability synergizes well with legends who excel in close-range combat, such as Gibraltar or Octane.

Map control

Consider the map you're playing on and how you can use it to your advantage. For example, if you're playing on World's Edge, you may want to choose legends with abilities that can help control the high ground, such as Horizon or Loba.


Good communication is key in Apex Legends. Make sure that your team is communicating effectively and that everyone knows what role they are playing and what the plan is.


Be prepared to adapt to changing circumstances. Sometimes things don’t go according to plan, and it's important to be able to adjust your strategy on the fly.

Playing with the Meta

It's also important to consider the current meta when drafting your team composition. Playing meta legends or meta compositions can give your team a significant advantage as they are known to be the strongest and most popular choices among the players.
Keep in mind that, even though playing with the meta can give you an advantage, it's also important to experiment and try different strategies and compositions to find what works best for you and your team. Communication and flexibility are also key to be able to adapt to different situations in the game.

Countering the enemy team

Knowing what legends the enemy team is using can give you a big advantage. However, it's not always possible to know the enemy team's composition before a match starts, as it is a Battle Royale game and players drop into the map randomly. However, you can use the information you gather during the match to make educated guesses about what legends the enemy team might be using and adjust your strategy accordingly.


By keeping these factors in mind, you can draft a team composition that gives you the best chance of success in Apex Legends. It's important to practice and experiment with different team compositions to find what works best for you and your team.
