Tier S Characters
These are the Best characters in the game, and we recommend you use them whenever you get the opportunity. Tier S Characters will surely help you win the game, but in the end, it all comes down to your skills and abilities, which you can increase by training. Apex Legends is also considered one of the best co-op games for PS5.
Bangalore is my favorite agent of all time, and that is because of her simple and effective set of skills and abilities that players can use in matches.
Her passive movement is also great, quickly getting you out of tricky situations. Bangalore’s smoke ability is one of the best abilities that all the characters have in the game, and even after being nerfed down, she is still one of the best characters that players can choose in the game.
Bangalore has two tactical abilities; the first is a Smoke launcher, which lets her deploy a smokescreen that reduces the visibility of a specific area and can be pretty helpful to get out of tricky situations.

Finally, her ultimate ability is the Rolling Thunder, and you might want to be careful with this one as you wouldn’t have much chance of being alive if this ability is used against you.
