Apex Legends – Who Has the Smallest Hitbox

Apex Legends Wraith Hitbox

If you’re playing Apex Legends and wondering which character has the smallest hitbox among all 16, this quick guide covers that. First, it’s important to know what a hitbox is for those that don’t. Simply put, a character’s hitbox is every part of their model that can be shot. Depending on the model designed by Respawn Entertainment, many characters have their hitbox slightly outside their body.

It’s important to remember that while hitboxes play a significant role, there are many other factors that decide how strong a character is. That aside, Wraith still has the smallest hitbox despite a recent change in Season 8 updating her model. The Season 8 patch notes mention adding some width in her torso and legs. An image in the patch notes is shown below with the changes made.

Who Has the Largest Hitbox in Apex Legends

Apex Legends Gibraltar Hitbox

The largest hitbox continues to be Gibraltar, hence his defensive playstyle to try and offset that. Despite being the largest, he’s still one of the higher tier legends due to his gun shield especially. This is also why Respawn added both the Low Profile and Fortified perk to help balance characters. Low Profile increases incoming damage by 5%, while Fortified reduces incoming damage by 15% and prevents bullets from slowing you. A list of characters with each perk is listed below.

Also, it’s important to note that there’s a lot of inaccurate information online regarding hitboxes for Apex Legends characters. For example, a few websites use outdated measurements from a Reddit post almost two years near the launch of the game. This doesn’t mean they’re not generally correct, as you can still make out a decent idea of how each character ranks in size.

Low Profile Characters

  • Wraith
  • Lifeline
  • Pathfinder
  • Watson

Fortified Characters

  • Gibraltar
  • Caustic
