3 quality-of-life changes to make Apex Legends better on console
Apex Legends is a great game on console that has a lot more settings and options available for players unlike other FPS’s of its kind. However, there is still a few things that can make it even better.
Apex Legends developers do such a great job at communicating with the player community, responding to questions, and even implementing requested changes.
The game feels great on console, with a next-gen upgrade sure to be coming in the future. The devs have implemented many settings on the console that we usually only see on PC, such as a FOV slider and Advanced Look Controls.
Although the devs seem to stay on top of community requested changes and bugs, there is three quality of life changes we’d like to see enter the game in the future.
Voice chat volume adjuster
Currently, in Apex Legends on console, there is no option to increase or decrease the volume of in-game voice chat. This can be very off-putting and even ruin games due to bad communication between teammates.
It seems cross-play may also be a reason for this, as Xbox players are significantly quieter for PlayStation players, which is something many in the community have noticed. If this is fixed, it would be a great quality of life change for those who life to solo and duo que.
Covert teammate text to chat
Although there is an option to convert this already, it also converts your own voice to text chat and anyone else using a mic, which can be extremely off-putting for the teammates who are already communicating through voice chat.
It would be nice to see an option to convert text to chat without affecting those who are using microphones; a quality-of-life change not many are talking about.
The current option console players have is to convert text chat to an automated voice, like iPhone’s Siri. However, this can be extremely annoying and even hard to make out what people are trying to communicate.
Make no fill stick
No fill was added into the game during the Chaos Theory event update, but there is one issue with it that would be a great quality of life change. Before you enter a game, players now have the option to no fill, which means they will enter without teammates, whether in Trios or Duos.
The one issue is that after you select this option, once you return to the lobby the option gets reset. It would be a small, but meaningful change improving the game’s quality of life.
