This article will feature the top 10 best Controller players currently dominating the Apex Legends in 2023.
Apex Legends is one of the most-played Battle Royale titles of the modern era. This game introduced so many unique features that astounded FPS and Battle Royale fans. Shooting and aiming is one such feature that made Apex Legends stand out from the crowd.
Although Apex Legends initially shined due to its movement mechanisms, the meta is currently favoring controllers more due to their superiority in the aiming department. Most of the current top Ranked players are dominating Apex Legends thanks to the controllers and aim assists.
A similar scenario can be noticed in the competitive scene as well. Many pro players, especially in NA, are currently using controllers, and many more are constantly switching to them. Best controller players can beam enemies and kill them instantly, thanks to the aim assist and hours of non-stop practice.
In this article, we will feature ten such players who amazed everyone with their aim and controller prowess in Apex Legends. Almost every player in this list is known by the Apex Legends community, as they are really popular and have a huge fan base.

Top 10 Best Controller Players in Apex
As mentioned earlier, this article will list the 10 best controller players currently dominating Apex Legends. These players are also referred to as human aimbots by many people in the community. Additionally, they are the best of the bests when it comes to aiming in Apex Legends.
As everyone is insane and can dominate a lobby pretty easily, ranking them from best to worst is pretty challenging. However, we’ll still rank the players based on what we think are currently the best controller players in Apex Legends.
So, here are our top 10 best controller players in Apex Legends:
Noyan “Genburten” Ozkose is an Australian/Turkish player currently playing for DarkZero Esports. Genburten is the definition of a true human aimbot. His aim is so crisp and smooth that many believe he is cheating.
However, he proved everyone wrong after showing his skills in ALGS with DarkZero. Not only did he perform, but DarkZero became the ALGS 2022 Champions. Even the best players in Apex Legends agree that Genburten is the best controller player in the game right now.
Paris “StayNaughty” Gouzoulis is an American/Greek player who is currently playing for Cloud9. Before joining Cloud9, he wasn’t a very renowned player in the Apex Legends community. However, as soon as he entered the big organization, he started to fly.
StayNaughty is a player who can easily clutch in any given situation. He was already a beast before he joined Cloud9, yet, he keeps improving daily. He is constantly becoming a more prominent player in the Apex Legends community.
Phillip “ImperialHal” Dosen is an American player currently playing for TSM. Many players might disagree with ImperialHal’s ranking on this list. However, he only recently switched to a controller and is already dominating the Apex Legends competitive scene.
He has godlike aim on controllers, and he has the brains to back up his aim, which makes him deadlier than anyone else. Additionally, he keeps improving his aim with the controller day by day. If he keeps up like this, he might even take the first place on this list in no time.
Nathan “ChaoticMuch” Gajkiewicz is a British player currently playing for G2 Esports. ChaoticMuch is undoubtedly on par with Genburten when it comes to controller aiming. However, he can be inconsistent sometimes, making him fall from the list.
Also, he only joined G2 recently. So, his capability with a controller is yet to reveal against the big guns. Nonetheless, he is a force to be reckoned with and should never be taken lightly.
In number 5, we have another player from G2 named Tyler “Dezignful” Gardner from America. Dezginful is a close-range beast. He always runs an SMG and Wingman combo. His Wingman shots are out of the world and will make you feel like he is using aimbots.
Dezignful has been in the competitive Apex Legends scene for a long time, and everyone respects him very much. He has a very aggressive playstyle, making him more deadly in close-quarter fights. So, be careful if you ever find him on your server.
Evan “Verhulst” Verhulst is an American player who is currently playing for TSM. Verhulst was a living prodigy when he was in ESA. Everyone thought Verhulst would shine brighter with TSM. However, it didn’t happen due to many reasons.
Regardless, Verhulst is still an aiming god with controllers. His Valkyrie movement and clutching abilities will make you question your Apex Legends mastery. Although he is going through a rough patch in TSM, hopefully, he will get into better shape and return to his former glory very soon.
Scott “Pandxrz” Maynard is an American player who is currently playing for FURIA Esports. He is one of the most versatile controller players in the Apex Legends pro scene. Most controller pro players are good with aim only. However, Pandxrz is a total package.
He has great movement, insane aim, and fast looting efficiency. With Pandxrz’s help, FURIA got close to being the ALGS Champion in 2022 and became the Runner Up with the highest points.
Beau “RamBeau” Sheidy is an American player who is currently playing for The Guard. Many might disagree with him being on this list. However, his talent with the controller shouldn’t be taken lightly.
RamBeau and his previous team secured 5th position in the ALGS 2022 Championship. Additionally, he has been doing pretty well in recent tournaments, including ALGS Pro League. So, he deserves a place on this list.
Zachary “Gild” Dennis is an American player currently playing for NRG. Gild is one such player who stays under the shadow, but when the right time comes, he preys on his targets without fail.
Many might not even know who Gild is, as he hasn’t been competing in Apex Legends for a long time. However, since he joined NRG, he has been a dominating force and is recognized as well as feared by other pros due to his insane aim and clutching abilities.

Extessy will question your preconceptions if you believe a controller player cannot be a movement god. Although there are limitations to how much you can do with a controller, Extessy can do all of them without any issues. He is such a player who makes the MnK players feel inferior in terms of movement.
So, there you go! These are currently the best controller players in Apex Legends. And, as mentioned earlier, every one of these players is great, and you can place them anywhere on this list. Every player in this list has their specialty and uniqueness.
Additionally, there are also other players who could not be mentioned in this top 10 list. However, we’ll update this article regularly, and some players might take over others in no time. So, keep an eye on the article to find the best controller players of 2023 in Apex Legends.
