To access the settings, players should open the game and they will find the setting option from the bottom menu bar. Settings are located on the left corner of the lobby screen.

Basic Settings

Basic Settings is the initial setting of a game. Divided into three parts namely the Firing, ADS, and Gyroscope Settings, the basic part has another portion namely the Advance Settings Options. For beginners, the Aim Assist should be turned on as they do not have a close-to-perfect aim. All the shooting options are recommended to set ‘Tap to fire’.

Auto pickup is a useful feature. But players need to set the limit for each item according to their need when playing. So, we didn’t put any exact numbers of items so that the players can set them to match their needs.

A higher frame rate means a smoother experience. So, always select the highest frame rate option as per your device’s capability. However, high graphics quality puts more pressure on a device’s GPU, causing fluctuations in frame rate. You can try to keep the graphics quality low. But, if your device can handle the framerate smoothly while on higher graphics, you can go for that so you can experience great animations and game graphics.

Sensitivity, Control, and Sound Settings

Each player has a distinct playstyle. According to one’s preference, they need to choose the control settings and the matching sensitivity according to their control. Play some matches to try different sensitivities and set one as you need. However, an overall sensitivity is given below.

Overall SensitivityCustom (Try several numbers for each)
FPP Free Camera (Focus)Off
TPP Free Camera (On)On
Free Camera (Focus)200%
Sensitivity Acceleration100%

For the sound settings, always try to set the sound high for interface effects, gun sounds, enemy’s footsteps, etc. while a low sound is recommended for less important things such as Background Music. Good communication among teammates increases the chance to succeed. So, the voice sound should be kept at a higher level.

Give these settings a try and if you are finding trouble, you can refer to this Apex Legends Mobile best settings guide at any time to learn all about the new settings and sensitivities present in the game. We hope this setting guide will help you to experience easy gameplay without getting a hassle.
