Online Searches For Apex Legends Porn Top Two Million

With seven billion people crammed onto the tiny – relatively speaking – planet we call Earth, it goes without saying that a certain portion of the population has some niche tastes when it comes to self-pleasure.

For some, the internet is as synonymous with porn as social media, and just like the latter, there’s no shortage of choice. As it turns out, video games have become big bucks for the adult industry over the last few years, too, with games like Overwatch gaining notoriety in the past for porn spoofs. Blizzard’s shooter, however, has fallen out of favor with audiences in recent times with another rising to take its place.

Apex Legends hasn’t only been satiating the lust for a brand new battle royale since launch back in February. As per Kotaku’s request, Pornhub has crunched the numbers on which video game fetishes are currently topping the charts, with Respawn’s shooter coming out the clear winner. In fact, in just over two months since Fortnite‘s biggest competitor hit the market, more than 2.3 million searches for Apex Legends-brand porn have been made on Pornhub alone.

Those eager to analyze the statistics first-hand can check out the image below.

As the graph reveals, Wraith, Lifeline, Mirage and Pathfinder – yes, the sentient, very unhuman-like robot – are the most frequently searched-for characters, with Caustic, and Gibraltar nowhere to be seen. They’re as unpopular in porn as Apex Legends itself, then. Unsurprisingly, the initial popularity has since tapered off, likely reflecting Apex Legendsoverall popularity decline, but it’s still by far the biggest winner.

In regards to its closest competitors, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Metro Exodus and – worryingly – Kingdom Hearts III all experienced a surge in activity around their releases, as too, did BioWare’s Anthem. Given Pathfinder’s aforementioned popularity, there’s clearly a bustling market out there for robot porn.

Don’t worry, it’s safe.
