How to find your perfect sensitivity in Apex Legends

Everybody has different needs, so copying someone else’s sensitivity settings in Apex Legends won’t work. You will need to find your own perfect sensitivity by adjusting the settings as you see fit.

The best place to do this is the Firing Range, which got a major overhaul in Season 17. Players can use this space to take their time and keep playing around with their sensitivity settings until it feels right. Use the customization options to recreate in-game situations and even have bots spawning and shooting you.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Go into the Firing Range
  2. Flick your recticle between the dummies and make note of its movements
  3. Go to the Main Menu
  4. Click on the gear symbol in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen
  5. Select Settings and then go to Mouse/Keyboard or Controller (depending on what you’re playing with)
  6. Adjust your sensitivity settings accordingly

It’s important that you make sure the sensitivity allows you to turn around in one full swipe. Enemies can sneak up on you from behind, and you’ll need to turn quickly in order to respond to them.

If you feel that your crosshair moves too quickly and goes too far, then you’ll need to lower your sensitivity. However, if it’s moving too slowly and seems unresponsive, then you’ll need to raise this setting.

It’s also important to note the deadzone setting for controller, as this will make your sensitivity feel less touchy if on and more sensitive if there is none.
