Apex Legends Character Hit Box Sizes

Currently in Apex Legends there are 8 total playable characters each with different abilities and tactics. However, all of the Legends may not be created equal. YouTube content creator SookieSpy, recently tested and outlined the hit boxes for all 8 characters. In his recent hit box size test he noticed that all of the characters have different hit boxes, and could create an unfair advantage depending on how you look at it.

Above all 8 legends are outlined, and ordered left to right from smallest hit box to largest hit box. It appears as if Wraith has almost half the hit box size of the bubble shielding tank, Gibraltar. The smaller hit box characters are able to hind behind smaller object likes rocks and trees without their sides or heads peering over the top or out the side. Keep in mind that each character has their own unique ability, which in turn may have caused the developers to change hit box size to balance out character skill requirements.

Apex Legends Smallest to Largest Characters

  • Wraith
  • Lifeline
  • Bloodhound
  • Mirage
  • Bangalore
  • Pathfinder
  • Caustic
  • Gibraltar

One character that really sticks out to us is Pathfinder. The character appears to be tall and slender, but in reality has the 3rd largest hit box of all characters. It appears that Reddit and the developers have noticed the hit box size difference. The developer noted that the hit box size difference is something they are aware of, specifically on Pathfinder, and are looking into it.
