To give you some context, I was, pretty much, a Destiny no-lifer. 4 KAD, Legend every season, Unbroken title etc. So I have solid aim, map awareness etc.

I switched to Apex Legends and my God was it frustrating. I couldn't land shots that I was sure were hitting, I felt like there was some weird AA glitch going on and I just watched as my friends got 15+ kill games and I was lucky to get 3.

I spent AGES playing, tweaking, reading posts here and trying to work out where I was going wrong. It's only in the last few days I've stumbled across settings I love as well as making a huge revelation in terms of the way this game plays.

First up my settings.

Hardware: Logitech G502 Hero at 3200 dpi (1000hz), cloth pad, Xim Apex using latest Beta Firmware, 125hz polling.

In game: 7/6, High Velocity Curve, FOV 87. Look Deadzone 'None', Small for movement.

Xim Apex settings:

Sync: Common

Hip: 37.50
Y/X - 0.95
Boost: 30

ADS: 15
Y/X: 1.3
Boost: 100
Steady Aim: 6


The biggest, BIGGEST revelation I made personally, was hugely scaling down the ADS sensitivity. I was so used to an almost 1:1 hip to ADS on Destiny but just found when using that in Apex Legends I would have shots perfectly lined up, even in close range gunfights with Wingman, and they just wouldn't land. It was infuriating. However, as soon as I really reduced that ADS sense, my shots just land. I thought the gun was broken but couldn't work out why all my friends were wrecking with it.

I firmly believe this game plays much better with a thicker, sludgier ADS speed.

I really hope this helps some of you who have been feeling as frustrated as I have.

Shout if you have any questions!

Yea seems like really nice settings, what DPI are you using, and you using 500hz or 1000hz?

Your probably not hitting shots bc your using high velocity curve, and deadZone set to none, along with steady aim set to 5
