Trouble with Tap Strafing in Apex Legends
« on: 01:20 AM - 02/18/22 »
So I'm following the tutorial here:

Create a Subprofile
Set it to trigger with "Wheel Up"
Under that subprofile, set "JUMP" to "Wheel Up"
also set "Forward" to "Wheel Up"
Set that subprofile with a 2ms trigger delay AND a 2ms release delay (this is important)
Under that subprofile, make sure your typical "Jump" and "Forward" buttons aren't mapped. (ie. nothing for Spacebar Nor W"

Tap strafing requires you you to be in sync with the game. Set your Polling Rate to 125hz on Xbox and 240hz on Playstation and set your Sync to "Off"
Complete tap strafing is NOT possible without OFF sync and the correct polling rate. I've tested it for hours.
Also you need the fastest aim speed cap which includes turning off aim assist but that's a contentious topic but Aim Assist is for cheaters, period.


*Unlike PC, Don't let go of "W" when spinning the wheel. On PC you want to let go of W but with the XIM it adds a W press

I couldn't get it to work, anyone else get it to work?

If you are on the console then the guide above wont work, its intended for people who play Apex Legends on the PC with a XIM i think.
The console version of Apex Legends doesn't have the "lurch" mechanic. Because of that tap strafing is not possible on consoles.

Console games also donít register button presses of less than 20ms. So things like this and Titan skating in Destiny 2 that uses the scrollwheel on a mouse donít work on PS or Xbox.

2ms values wonít register in console games, 20ms is the minimum value. On PC, most games wonít recognise presses less than 10ms.
