The Best Mouse Sensitivity in Apex Legends
After playing a lot of Apex and following the esports scene regularly, here's what I've surmised. The best mouse settings in Apex Legends are drumroll... The ones you feel most comfortable with.
Anticlimactic, I know. Here's the deal though. When it comes to Apex Legends settings, any setting, at all. It's your gear that is the determining factor for what will be "the best" for you. Even if you have amazing gear, sometimes less is more. Take for example iitztimmy's Apex Settings. Even though he's one of the best Apex streamers, he still lowers his settings to low across the board.
Nickmerks' Apex settings are the complete opposite. He turns everything up to high, as he prioritizes the viewer's experience over FPS. Let's return to the mouse settings discussion though. As a principle, you should always keep your Apex Legends mouse sensitivity at low sensitivity. Especially if you have a high-DPI mouse, then your in game sensitivity needs to go even lower. Look at this table for example.
Per Optic ADS Sensitivity
I have a relatively high DPI mouse sensitivity. Specifically, I always keep my mouse at 1600 DPI. Because my normal mouse sensitivity is so high, my Apex Legends sensitivity has to be lowered or else it feels like I'm in a race car. Additionally, I play with Per Optic ADS on, since I prefer having my long-range optics on a lower sensitivity.
General Tips & Tricks on Mouse Sensitivity Settings
The general mouse sensitivity settings aren't that big of a deal, but they're still worthy of a mention. If you want an in-depth look at the best mouse & keyboard settings for Apex, check out our corresponding article.
Here's a nifty table of how I like to keep my general mouse settings.
Clamp Mouse Cursor to Game Window
Nothing special really. My mouse acceleration is off at all times, as I don't need that extra boost. Mouse invert is likewise off, cause. Come on... You have to be a psychopath to play with an inverted mouse. And last but not least, Clamp Mouse Cursor to Game Window is off because I like being able to tab out whenever I want. Oh, and Lighting Effects are on cuz they're cool.
