Do you love Apex Legends and want to be better at your games? In this guide, you will find all tips for the best pro player settings to use, including audio, graphics, mouse settings, and more.

Although Respawn’s battle royale  Apex Legends may sound like a consolidated title in video game history, it appeared almost out of nowhere in February 2019 with very little build-up or hype. It immediately earned both critical and popular acclaim by incorporating the fluid mobility and skilled shooting of Respawn's underappreciated Titanfall series. 

Because of its diverse cast of characters, robust weaponry, and varied gaming possibilities, the game has garnered interest from streamers, content creators, and professional gamers alike. Given the popularity of the game, the skill ceiling is rather high, particularly if you are a competitive player.  Because of the high competition, there is no one method to win; instead, the key is to get the settings just right and then play to your strengths.

Before we dive right into Apex Legends best settings, check out how G-Loot can make your game more rewarding and help you track your stats as you compete!

Best Audio Settings for Apex Legends in 2022

The majority of Battle Royale games place a strong emphasis on audio settings. Before starting a game, you must make the necessary audio settings to effectively hear gunshots, movement, and dialogue. First off, aim to keep the music volume or lobby music at no more than 25% because, at this level, you can have an intense gaming experience without it interfering with your performance. 

Although Apex Legends' excellent sound effects can be used to your advantage in combat, any music volume increase of more than 25% will have a noticeable impact on the game right away.  Here are our recommended Apex Legends audio settings so that you can hear every sound during combat.

  • Master Volume: 80% (It's advisable to adjust your PC audio first before making any changes in-game if you're wearing headphones).

  • Voice Chat Record Mode: Open Mic

  • Lobby Music Volume: 20%

  • Sound in Background: Off

  • Play Incoming Text as Speech: Off

  • Open Mic Record Threshold: 1300

  • Dialogue Volume: 80%

  • Music Volume: 40%

  • Incoming Voice Chat Volume: 100%

  • Sound Effects Volume: 100%

  • Convert Incoming Voice to Chat Text: Off

Apex Legends Best Display Settings

To maximize the performance of your system, you must first adjust the display settings. You should select the resolution in your resolution selection that has "native" next to it. If you have a low-end laptop, it might be 1366x768 or, on the majority of regular PCs, 1920x1080. Next up, keep Nvidia Reflex enabled plus boost if you have access to it. 

You will encounter fewer world blurs if you disable ambient occlusion, which will enhance your ability to move and shoot. The load on the GPU and CPU will be reduced for PC users by setting both Sun shadow options to low and Spot shadow to disabled. If your setup requires fewer frames, you might want to try setting the model and effects detail to low. Overall, there will be fewer interruptions, and the game will go more smoothly.

  • Display mode: Full Screen

  • Aspect Ratio: 16:9 (Always choose the native aspect ratio)

  • Resolution: 1920×1080 (Native resolution is recommended)

  • V-Sync: Off

  • Texture Streaming Budget – Medium or lower

  • Texture Filtering – Anisotropic 2X

  • Ambient Occlusion Quality – Medium or lower

  • V-Sync – Disabled

  • Adaptive Resolution FPS Target – Zero

  • Adaptive Supersampling – Greyed out

  • Anti-Aliasing – Off

  • Model Detail – Medium or lower

  • Effects Detail – Medium or lower

  • Sun Shadow Detail – Low

  • Spot Shadow Detail – Low

  • Sun Shadow Coverage – Low

  • Volumetric Lighting – Disabled

  • Dynamic Spot Shadows – Disabled

  • Impact Marks – Medium or lower

  • Ragdolls – Lower

Best Apex Legends Mouse Settings for PC

Comparatively speaking to other battle royale video games, Apex Legends’ sensitivity settings are quite low. Even at the default settings, they move more quickly and with more precision. To maintain accuracy, you will therefore need to lower them further than you would in games like PUBG or Fortnite. 

Lower sensitivity and a larger mouse area, which enable you to execute more powerful arm movements, tend to be preferable. As a result, those movements make it easier to target precisely and clearly, enabling you to be more accurate even while aiming from a distance. 

Professional Apex Legends players from Team SoloMid, NRG Esports, and Team Liquid generally set their Dots per Inch settings between 400 and 800. In firefights and at a distance, this DPI sweet spot combines swift mobility with efficient control for equal performance. While aiming for 400 or 800 is advised, truly anywhere in between should work fine for beginner and competitive players alike. 

The next on the list, mouse acceleration, seems like the perfect solution for a gunfight, but it will alter how you play. To maintain consistency in your gaming, turn it off. To locate your sweet spot, start by setting ADS to 1.0 and test up to 1.5 to see what feels the most comfortable and accurate.

Apex Legends Mouse Settings

  • Mouse Sensitivity: 1.3-3.0

  • ADS Mouse Sensitivity Multiplier: 1.2

  • Mouse Invert: Off

  • Mouse Acceleration: Off

Best Apex Legends Graphics Settings for PC

Professional players always strive to have the smoothest gaming experience possible. Therefore, almost all of them and in practically every game, have a monitor that can push at least 144 frames per second and a computer with a specialized graphics card that can push enough frames to said monitor.

Best Refresh Rate for Apex Legends: 144Hz – 240Hz

If you want to play games at a competitive level, getting a high framerate is pretty much a need. This is true both because you'll need to run a 144Hz (or higher) monitor to achieve a smooth image and because higher framerates result in lower input latency. While a system delivering 240 frames per second has latency between 20 and 35 milliseconds, 60 frames per second gamer would encounter end-to-end latencies between 55 and 75 milliseconds.

Best Apex Legends Gameplay Setting for PC

  • Minimap Rotation: On (It can be confusing and is usually unnecessary for players who are familiar with the map. When looking at the map, it can, however, save you a few seconds, so you can choose whatever is more convenient for you.)

  • Weapon Auto-Cycle on Empty: ON (This is merely another click-saving technique, but since it occasionally chooses the incorrect weapon, avoid using it until you're comfortable with how it operates.)

  • Button Hints: Off

  • Crosshair Damage Feedback: Disable

  • Ping Opacity: Faded

  • Crosshair Damage Feedback: OFF

  • Damage Numbers: Stacking

  • Jetpack Control: Hold

  • Obituaries: On

  • Enable Accessible Chat Features: Off

  • Convert Incoming Voice to Chat Text: Of

  • interact Prompt Style: Compact

  • Auto-Sprint: Off

  • Double Tap Spring: On

  • Taking Damage Closes Deathboxes: OFF

  • Performance Display: ON

  • Incoming Damage Feedback: 30

  • Taking Damage Closes Deathbox: On

  • Hop-Up Pop-up: On

  • Subtitles: Off

  • Play Incoming Chat as Speech: Off

How To Remove FPS Cap for Apex Legends

You'll need to tinker with the game itself before you optimize your game to run the best Apex Legends settings. To ensure you can receive the highest rate possible, you must disable the FPS cap that the game automatically runs. In contrast to other games, Apex Legends required this change to be made externally. The method goes like this:

1. Launch Apex Legends from the library

2. Right-click the game 

3. Choose Game Properties (or Properties on Steam)

4. Select the Advanced Launch Options menu (General Tab on Steam)

5. In Command-Line Arguments insert +fps_maxunlimited (Launch Options on Steam)

6. Press Save (Exit menu on Steam)

Final advice on pro players settings for Apex Legends in 2023

So, there you have it, the best Apex Legends pro settings in 2023. Obviously, not everyone will prefer these settings, so feel free to experiment and see what suits you the best. In addition to removing the FPS cap and changing the aforementioned settings, you can also perform the standard maintenance tasks like updating the graphic card drivers, shutting down any background programs like your browser, and possibly even upgrading your PC's RAM.
