It’s important to have the optimal game settings when hopping into the new season, and this includes FOV which you can customize to improve your view and give yourself a competitive edge over your opponents.

We’ll go over everything that you need to know about FOV in Apex Legends.

What is FOV in Apex Legends?

FOV stands for field of view, which is essentially the size of the viewing angle on the screen. If this setting is higher, it will allow for a bigger viewing angle, letting players see more around them. If this setting is lower, it will decrease the viewing angle.

The default FOV on Apex Legends is set to 70, which to most experienced players is extremely low. The setting can be adjusted to go all the way up to 110.

Having a better FOV setting will improve your aim in Apex Legends.

What Apex Legends FOV setting is best?

The best FOV setting lies between 96 and 104 depending on your setup. If you play on a big TV then you should have a higher FOV as the bigger screen will allow you to still see long-range targets.

While this setting is entirely up to your personal preference and setup, we strongly recommend that you keep it above 70 FOV. Otherwise, you’ll be limited in your ability to read what’s going on around you.

A high FOV on a smaller screen or monitor may distort your viewing and prevent you from seeing things at longer ranges, so in this case, we recommend that you keep your FOV in the 90s.

Ultimately, having your FOV between 90-104 will put you at an advantage over those with the default or lower, as you will be able to see more on the screen and react much quicker to situations.

After setting a new, higher FOV, you may also want to play around with your sensitivity and increase that, too, as these settings scale, and a higher FOV might make your original sensitivity feel too slow.
