Apex Legends Mobile: Best Gameplay Settings

Despite being a mobile version of a well-established PC and Console battle royale game, Apex Legends Mobile is surprisingly feature-packed. Apex Legends Mobile comes with tons of customization options to give players the best gaming experience on mobile.

Playing an FPS game on a tiny mobile phone display can be challenging since players do not have the same granular adjustability in aiming and movement. Fortunately, Respawn Entertainment knows this and added a slew of in-game options that can help give the players a more desktop or console-like Apex Legends feel.

With that in mind, we have compiled the best gameplay settings that you need to try out in Apex Legends Mobile. Trust us, after using these settings for a while. You are never going back.

Apex Legends on the Small Screen

Let’s face it, playing Apex Legends Mobile on a small 6.7-inch screen can be a bit challenging.

Unlike PUBG Mobile or Fortnite Mobile, Apex Legends Mobile features even more on-screen buttons due to multiple movement options and Legend abilities. These on-screen buttons can be complicated to get to since the devs had to shrink their sizes down to fit a tiny mobile phone display.

Amid a duel or engagement in Apex Legends Mobile, you might fumble to tap these buttons consistently, even when you are more experienced with the on-screen button locations. Oh, and having just two thumbs does not help as well.

Knowing this, the settings we have featured below should take a few in-game movement inputs out of the equation so you can use your thumbs for pressing on-screen buttons instead.

For aiming, we recommend you turn on the Gyroscope Aiming option to the “Always On” position as it provides a more responsive and precise tracking experience versus swiping on-screen.

Ready Set Go

Apex Legends Mobile can be very challenging to play on a mobile phone. Unless players have something better to play with, like a large-screened iPad or a Galaxy Tab, players will have no choice but to tweak some settings to make gameplay on a smaller screen more bearable.

With that said, the above settings should make things like basic interaction and on-screen information more consistent. The Gyroscope option is handy for freeing up your right thumb from its screen panning duties, so it can focus on pressing movement buttons on that side of the screen instead.

So there we have it! Feel free to tweak or modify any of these settings to your liking.
