Adjust your Apex Legends settings to improve your game’s performance and better battle your opponents in the Ring.

If you’re new to playing Apex Legends and need help choosing your video settings, use these suggestions as a starting point.

To increase FPS in Apex Legends, you’ll want to lower the majority of your Video settings without sacrificing your ability to spot enemies. If you’re unsure where to start, try lowering a few options at a time to see how it impacts FPS.

If you don’t see a setting listed here, it’s because it won’t impact your game performance.
