Tips to Increase FPS in Apex Legends

Here are a couple of Apex Legends FPS boost tips that will surely improve your FPS in Apex Legends and increase the performance of your PC:

  • Turn off the Game Mode
  • Turn off Xbox Game Bar
  • Under Graphics settings on your Windows 10, enable Hardware-accelerating GPU scheduling
  • Make sure that your GPU drivers are always updated

In the in-game settings, under the video tab, do the following things:

  • Make sure that your resolution is native. Also, contrary to popular belief, Full Screen will give you better FPS than the Windowed mode.
  • The best setting for Field of View is 90. Going above it will lose you FPS.
  • Anti-aliasing makes a small difference, so it can stay on.
  • Ambient Occlusion Quality is really important for FPS. Lower it.
  • Set Shadow Details to Low.
  • Set Ragdolls to Low.

These are the best settings for Apex Legends, and you won’t experience any lags. On the other hand, they won’t decrease the quality of your gameplay, either - so it's a win-win situation.
