Nickmercs Apex Legends Settings [Revelaled]

Nickmercs Controller Settings

Although he isn't on the main roster of FaZe Clan, Nickmercs is still one of the best Apex controller players currently.

That fact is more than evident from his streams. That mainly stems from two things. First of all, he's a player with years of experience behind him. And second of all, he knows what the best Apex controller binds are. That is how he gets an edge over his opponents.

Aim Down Sigh Sensitivity3
Menu Cursor Speed50%

As you can see, Nickmercs prefers to use quite a high sensitivity when it comes to his controller settings. A stark contrast to Daltoosh's Apex Settings, which prefers to use a lower sensitivity instead.

Nickmercs Video Settings

When it comes to his video settings, Nickmercs prefers high-FPS to presentation.

This might seem strange, considering the fact that he is one of the best Apex streamers on the planet right now. In that regard, his philosophy is that good gameplay trumps good graphics any day of the week. And for good gameplay, you need a high FPS count.

One noteworthy thing about Nickmercs' Video Settings is his FOV setting, which he keeps at a confined 110. This is quite zoomed in all things considered. It's great for long-range engagements but can be quite confining when you're having a close-range engagement.

Nickmercs Controller Binds

Finally, we get to the meat and potatoes. This is Nickmerc's secret and the source of all his power!

Not really though. These binds are just what Nickmercs finds comfortable to use. You might feel differently about some of these. It's important to try out and experiment, to discover what feels good to you. That's what will ultimately make you better at the game.

Nickmercs Gaming Setup

Nickmercs has not one, but two gaming PCs that he uses. One is strictly for gaming, while the other he uses for streaming. Both rigs are absolute beasts though. Just look at the components he uses:

Gaming PCStreaming PCGaming Gear
CPU - AMD Ryzen 9 5950XCPU - AMD Ryzen9 3900XController - Scuf Refles MFAM Edition
GPU - Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090GPU - Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080TiMonitor - BenQ Zowie XL2546K

Case - BZXT H510 Elite BlackCase - NZXT H510 Elite BlackChair - Steelcase Gesture
CPU Cooler - NZXT Kraken X72Fans - NZXT AER RGB 140mm Kit
CPU Cooler - NZXT Kraken X62

In a way, it's kind of funny. Because Nickmercs has such a beastly gaming PC, it makes his slightly less beastly streaming PC look like a typewriter. I'm sure most of us would kill to have either of those machines, however. Ah well, I guess we'll just have to wait a bit longer for our FaZe contracts to come in.
