Best setting for Apex Legends

Apex Legends is a pretty heavy game to run. It’s hard to keep consistent high frames even with the average mid-to high-end PCs. I do want to stress that the most important factor is having stable frames. There’s no point in your PC reaching 240 frames per second if you can’t keep it since the game and your sensitivity feel completely different depending on your frames per second. If you peak at 240 frames but it bottoms out at let’s say 120 frames, you want to limit your frame rate to 120 for consistency’s sake. Later on, how to limit your frame rate. Hopefully, this guide will help you to raise that bottom frame rate, or maybe even let you cap out to your monitor’s refresh rate without dropping frames, and then lower your input lag for even better performance.

Tips to increase your FPS in Apex Legends

It also clarifies that not having a frame rate cap will give you the lowest input lag, but it will cause tearing and make the game feel janky. This guide isn’t primarily to raise your frames per second, which can easily be done just by lowering your graphics resolution, checking your background processes, or replacing computer components, but instead we’re going to focus on how to squeeze extra performance out of your computer and give you that consistent frame rate with low input lag to give you an edge on the battlefield.

First, you can start with enabling and setting up g-sync to work properly. If you’re already holding high stable frame rates, you probably won’t feel too much benefit, and personally, having g-sync on feels more floaty and less responsive than just having it off, but some users have reported seeing a benefit, so it comes down to what performance you have access to. Also, if you don’t have the Nvidia control panel, start by downloading it.

If you don’t have it, you can download this in the Windows 10 store. Open it and enable g-sync in the Nvidia control panel. You should see setup g-sync under the display menu on the left side. If you don’t see setup g-sync as an option and you’re sure it’s enabled by your monitor, you might need to install drivers for your monitor manually. If your monitor doesn’t have g-sync but does have freesync, these are now com compatible with each other.

At first, make sure to check enable G-Sync. G-Sync compatible and enable it for windowed and full screen mode.

1. Click Manage 3D Settings on the left.

2. Click on the tab and go to Program Settings when selecting a program to capture.

3 . Choose apex.exe.

If it’s not there, click add and select Apex Legends. When adjusting these settings, you want to make sure to input the following:

1. For aliasing, you want to set it to off and the aliasing mode to off.

2. Cuda GPUs Auto Low Latency Mode, not ultra as this causes issues.

3. You’re going to want to turn vertical sync on here in the control panel but. Once you get to Apex, you will turn it off. You need vsync for g-sync to work as it will kick in. If you go past your monitor’s refresh rate, for whatever reason, you get the best results if it’s enabled in the Nvidia control panel but disabled in the Apex. If you don’t have any of these options, just skip it. 

Best Apex Legends in-game settings

When you’re looking at your in-game settings, you go to the video tab. You want to make sure they look something like this:

  • V-sync – turned off
  • Nvidia reflex – turned on, nothing else adapted to the resolution
  • Fps target – set to zero
  • Anti-aliasing – turned off
  • Texture streaming budget depends on your graphics card, but I usually set it to about 2 gigabytes under the maximum vram texture filtering.
  • Low shadow detail
  • Low spot shadow detail, very high, it doesn’t really matter
  • Volumetric lighting – disabled
  • Dynamic spot shadows – enabled
  • Model detail – low
  • Effects detail – medium
  • Impact marks – high
  • Ragdolls – medium. If you are struggling with your FPS and you want to squeeze even more out, you can lower effects detail too low. You can lower ragdolls too low.
