Apex Legends has multiple settings to help you refine your aim, but Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has shown off the Color Blind Mode setting that has helped him to land his shots more accurately in Season 10.

Having the right aim settings for a first-person shooter can be the difference between winning and losing fights. You might have the natural aiming ability, but if the settings you use aren’t attuned to your playstyle, then you might be hindering yourself.

NICKMERCS found that he’d been missing more than his fair share of shots in Apex Legends with his current settings, but with some tinkering, he discovered that one of the game’s Color Blind options actually helped him.

Nick said in his video: “Now, the other day I was having trouble hitting some shots with certain sights in the Apex game. I watched a couple of other streamers, y’know, some controller guys, and I see them all playing on this Color Blind Mode. So I flick it on, right? And after I’d flicked it on…I didn’t miss!”

These settings have traditionally been for impaired players that suffer from colorblindness, and have trouble distinguishing certain colors from each other.

After Nick jokingly had a few attempts at pronouncing the name of the setting, we can confirm that the name of the setting is Tritanopia. The game’s official description of it says: “It “compensates for a blue-yellow color deficit.”

Nick added more about the setting saying: “It’s fire! It makes things a little bit colorful, but if you can get past that, then I think the sight being a different color, it works for me.”
