Follow these steps to turn on the FPS counter for Apex Legends on PC.

Frames-per-second (FPS) helps determine how smooth your gameplay is. Most players aim for around 60 FPS as a standard in Apex Legends.

You can turn on your FPS tracking to monitor whether you should turn down other gameplay settings. For example, if your FPS is lower than 60, you may decide to turn some settings down, or adjust the Adaptive Resolution FPS Target in the Video settings tab under the Advanced section.

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Go to the Gameplay tab.
  3. Toggle Performance Display on.

You’ll now see FPS and ping data in the top-right corner.
