Best Apex Legends Settings (Performance/FPS/Sensitivity) – 2021

In this post, I’ve gathered the best settings for Apex Legends. I’ve tested all possible settings combinations on different computers, and the settings below are what I found to be the best settings for Apex Legends overall.

With the below settings and data, you can expect an increase in performance, fps boost, lower input lag and latency, and possibly reduce & stabilize your ping.

Apart from that, I will also include sensitivity and mouse settings used by the most popular Pro Apex Legends players in the world to give you the best possible experience and competitive advantage while playing Apex.

Best Apex Legends Settings

Below you can find a table of contents with everything included in this guide. All the best Apex Legends settings are categorized from launch options to mouse and sensitivity settings by Pros.

Best Apex Legends Launch Options

You can add the following commands in your Steam or Origin Launch options to increase your game’s performance even more. The following commands will do the following:

  • Give your game higher priority than the rest of the apps running at the same time
  • Will preload different aspects of the game, which is really helpful for low-med end GPUs
  • Will uncap the FPS limit in Apex Legends
  • Will make your game run on Fullscreen since many times, this setting changes automatically.
  • Skip the intro of the game every time it launches

Best Apex Legends Launch options for performance and to boost fps.

Best Apex Legends Graphics settings

One of the most important settings tab in Apex Legends since the settings you will choose here will determine how your game looks and performs. Even players with the best hardware are lowering the graphics quality settings just for the game’s smoothness, the higher FPS, and the competitive advantage you get by not being distracted by fancy graphics.

  • Display Mode: Full Screen. You always want to play on full screen since the game will run way better
  • Aspect Ratio: Native for visuals. Higher than native if you want to be stretched. ( Make everything look a little bit bigger, so it may be helpful for you to hit targets easier)
  • Resolution: Native
  • Brightness: 50%
  • Field of View: 110
  • Sprint View Shake: Minimal, so when you are running, your screen doesn’t bounce.
Best Apex Legends Display / Graphics settings

Advanced

  • V-Sync: Disabled. Always disabled since it adds input lag.
  • NVidia Reflex: Experiment with this since it gives different results on different setups.
  • Adaptive Resolution FPS Target: 0
  • Adaptive Supersampling: Disabled.
  • Anti-aliasing: None.
  • Texture Streaming Budget: This really depends on your setup, and you have to test it out by yourself.

  • Sun Shadow Coverage: Low
  • Sun Shadow Detail: Low
  • Spot Shadow Detail: Disabled

  • Streamer Mode: Hides people’s names in the kill feed.
  • Anonymous Mode: Does the opposite of Streamer Mode. It hides your name in the kill feed.
