5 Best Apex Legends Controller Settings from BacKoFFmyJanKzLooking for BACKOFFMYJANKZ' Apex Settings? While Fortnite was the game everyone was talking about a year ago, Apex Legends has managed to steal some of the spotlight from Epic Games’ hit battle royale. Now, Apex Legends seems to be the rising star in the battle royale genre. There may be no building mechanic to learn, but Apex Legends has its own quirks and unique gameplay that’ll take some time to get used to. For players both new and experienced, here are five of the best Apex Legends Xbox One and PS4 controller settings from streamer BACKOFFMYJANKZ.

Gameplay Settings

While there are a variety of gameplay settings to mess around with to your heart’s content, below are two of the most important.

Interact Prompt Style: Default (for new players), Compact (for experienced players)

What is Interact Prompt Style in Apex Legends?

While this may seem like a small detail, the Field of View taken up by the item description decreases by over fifty percent. This means more open area, less distractions, and more awareness of your surroundings. On another note, the user experience just feels more clean and smooth in Compact mode.

Damage Numbers: Floating

What are Damage Numbers in Apex Legends?

Floating means the overhead display will show the damage given by each individual shot that hits your enemy. This is a similar damage counting style utilized in Fortnite: Battle Royale. Setting the damage numbers to Floating minimizes the risk of confusing how much damage you actually dealt to enemy players. The default Damage Numbers mode on Apex Legends is Stacking.

Stacking means that if your first shot deals 20 damage and the second shot deals 20 damage again, the first number overlay will read 20 and the second will read 40. In essence, the system is stacking or adding the sum of all shots. This means that in total, you dealt 40 damage to your enemy. However, it's easy to mistake these numbers to mean your first shot dealt 20 damage and your second shot dealt 40 damage for a total of 60 damage, which would be incorrect.

For those of you that migrated to Apex Legends from Fortnite, this would be quite confusing and would take a while to get used to, as Fortnite: Battle Royale also uses damage counters closer to the Floating method.

Controller Settings

Response Curve: Classic

What is Response Curve in Apex Legends?

Basically, the Response Curve is the speed at which the game registers movement of your reticle in response to when you move the thumbstick and how long you keep it in that position. The Response Curve is a measurement of how fast you want your maximum sensitivity speed to kick in. It functions as another element of look sensitivity and how your sensitivity is inputted into the game. While this may seem like a small detail for the average gamer, in a game where people can empty a full clip of ammunition in just seconds a difference of milliseconds matters when aiming. This is even more important when playing against higher caliber players.

Look Deadzone: Large

What is Look Deadzone in Apex Legends?

If your controller is old, you may experience character or crosshair movement while you are not even holding the controller. This means the thumbsticks are registering movement that you haven’t inputted. If this is the case, set your Look Deadzone to large to minimize the swaying that may occur in older controllers.


Field of View: 110 (max)

What is Field of View in Apex Legends?

As the title suggests, the field of view increases the amount of the map shown on your screen. Meaning at 110, an enemy player may be visible in the corner of your screen who would not be visible at a field of view of 70. Put simply, adjusting the field of view is almost like zooming in or zooming out, but does not affect resolution or visual quality.

In Apex Legends there are many various gameplay settings to choose from and customize to your gameplay style. While these settings are ideal for streamer BACKOFFMYJANKZ, you may experience different results and should adjust these settings as you see fit.
