Want to get high FPS in Apex Legends Mobile? Not only high, but a stable FPS also plays an important role in shooter games. A few rumors from the private beta suggested that Apex Legends Mobile will come with 90 FPS support. But unfortunately, we weren’t able to confirm the same yet. Don’t worry; we will help you unlock the highest possible FPS for Apex Legends M, according to your device. Plus, we will also be adding in a guide to choosing the best sensitivity to achieve those instant headshot kills!
How to get high FPS in Apex Legends Mobile?
Display settings are the only set you need to tweak to get a high and stable FPS. Open up in-game settings and then head over to the DISPLAY SETTINGS tab. If FPS is your only concern, set Image Quality to Smooth and the Frame Rate Control to the highest setting available. Note that Apex Legends Mobile is not at its optimized best as of now. You will have to make do with some amount of frame drops. However, setting image quality to the lowest will help reduce lags or frame drops to the maximum extent. Setting the frame rate control to ‘Extremely High‘ should get you (at least) 60 FPS on Smooth image quality. However, if the gameplay lags, we recommend lowering the frame rate control to ‘Ultra’ or lower.
Now, since most rumors regarding 90 FPS have not been confirmed by officials, we can only help you achieve the highest possible frame rate according to your device’s hardware. If your phone supports a screen refresh rate of 90 FPS, only then will Apex Legends Mobile be able to run on 90 FPS (if the rumors are true). To get the highest refresh rate possible for your device, you just have to set the image quality to ‘Smooth’ and the frame rate control to the highest available option. Also, make sure that you have enabled 90 FPS as your default screen refresh rate – you can change that from your phone settings.
What are the best sensitivity settings for Apex Legends Mobile?
Well, here’s a complex answer to a complex question: there’s no perfect sensitivity! You have to figure out the best set that suits your gameplay style. However, we will definitely help you find the best set. In mobile-based shooter games, the talk of the town is “gyroscope”. If you want to achieve accurate, no-recoil sprays, get on to the training grounds and practice sprays with gyroscope enabled. A gyroscope is basically a device inside your mobile phone that detects movement. With gyroscope enabled, you will be able to control all basic operations like moving and shooting by moving your mobile phone. We recommend high gyroscope sensitivity for maximum recoil control!
If you aren’t familiar with gyroscope, spend time on the training grounds to perfect it! You will not be able to get hold of the gyroscope in a day. You can enable gyroscope control from the BASIC SETTINGS tab. To edit sensitivity, head over to the SENSITIVITY tab. Here, set Overall Sensitivity to High (for recoil control). A high sensitivity will let you control recoil effectively but may reduce your accuracy. So, a good amount of practice will be required to get hold of the same. Now, choosing an overall sensitivity will set a pre-determined set of sensitivities to Camera, Firing, and Gyroscope. We recommend starting out with the default values and tweaking them as you go.
Choosing the best “customized” sensitivity for beginners
Scroll down from Overall Sensitivity to find sliders for different sensitivity kinds. The Camera Sensitivity determines the sensitivity that will be applicable for aiming without firing. Say, you spot an enemy and you want to aim at him/her to start shooting. The camera sensitivity will come into play when you open your scope and move it to place it on the enemy. Note that camera sensitivity is only applicable when you are not firing. Firing will activate Firing (ADS) Sensitivity. Say, you are shooting at a particular enemy and another enemy comes by to create a 1v2 situation. This will make use of a firing sensitivity for the particular scope (also hip firing/no scope) you are using. In addition to Firing and Camera, you will also be able to tweak your Gyroscope Sensitivity.
If you are just starting out, we recommend using the sensitivity preset values of the Overall Sensitivity to get used to it. However, choosing a low overall sensitivity can restrict your movement while endorsing high recoil, so we recommend avoiding it. High overall sensitivity is commonly used by players but may throw off your accuracy if you are not used to it. If you find a high overall sensitivity uncomfortable, start out with medium and increase it to high whenever you feel that you have grasped the deal!
Best Pro Sensitivity Settings?
Perfecting a set of sensitivity will take its own sweet time. So, don’t hurry on this one. Know that everything in mobile shooter games like Apex Legends will depend on sensitivity control. Gradually, start increasing your gyroscope sensitivity. Veterans suggest spending a lot of time in the training grounds and playing a lot of arena matches. The general rule of thumb for recoil control and accuracy is to drag your finger (which you are using to shoot) against the recoil direction. For recoil control using the gyroscope, move your phone in the opposite direction of recoil. Here’s how you can choose the best sensitivity for yourself:
1) For aim transferring (Firing, Camera, or Gyroscope), move your aim from one target to another and check whether the aim moves past the target. If so, reduce sensitivity. If your aim transferring movement is falling short, increase the sensitivity.
2) Spray fire at a distance of 100 meters to check. If you are unable to control recoil because it’s moving upwards, increase sensitivity. If your aim is moving downwards upon controlling recoil, decrease sensitivity.
