Apex Legends season 6 update

Apex Legends is a titan of a battle royale game. Despite being a stealth release in 2019, it skyrocketed and is one of the best BRs out there now.

It helps that we’ve just had Season 8 drop too, including a brand-new legend – Fuse – alongside a revamped Kings Canyon.

You might be wondering how you can make the most of this incredibly pretty game, and we’re here to help.

All you need to do is be prepared to mess around with some settings.

The best settings for Apex Legends graphics

The easiest way to describe things is to simply tell you to whack everything up to High or Very high in the settings.

If you want to get into the more granular stuff, then the settings you should put up are Adaptive Supersampling, Ambient Occlusion, Dynamic Spot Shadows, Effects Detail, Impact Marks, Model Detail, Spot Shadow Detail, Sun Shadow Coverage, Sun Shadow Detail, Texture Steaming Budget, and Volumetric Lighting.

If all of these settings are put up to their highest setting then you’ll have an intensely pretty world to run around in while you play Apex Legends.

What to keep in mind

These settings are designed to pull every iota of power out of your system.

Apex Legends will look absolutely stunning like this, but it’ll take a huge toll on any system that can’t handle it.



That means you can expect frame rate issues and stuttering if you’re asking for more than your PC can give, and that’s rarely worth the trade-off.

Instead, you’re better off playing around with the settings to get a stable frame rate on top of a fairly decent graphical fidelity. That’s all down to your machine though, so play around and find what works best.
