Trying to up your game in Apex Legends? Following the set-ups of the best players in the world might give somewhat of an edge, even if your talent isn’t up to the same levels. 

Top Apex Legends players operate on a level that is someways above the average joe who drops into a casual game or two every day or so. 

Former professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek may not play the game at a competitive level, but tune into one of his streams and you’ll see why he’s regarded as one of – if not the best – battle royale player in the world. 

Respawn EntertainmentHaving three players still isn’t enough to stop shroud.

Thanks to ProSettings, a website that tracks the set-ups of all popular Twitch streamers and competitive players, shroud’s in-game settings have been revealed. 

Trying your hardest to be like him in-game is a difficult task. However, you can do your best to replicate his skills by following his settings. Let’s take a look at them…

ELEAGUEThe former CS:GO pro dominates more or less every game he touches.

Sensitivity

The former Cloud9 pro uses a game sensitivity of three, while his aim down sights sensitivity is lower – at one. His pal, and fellow streamer, Dr Disrespect also follows shroud in using a game sensitivity of three.

The Doc also uses an aim down sights sensitivity of one, meaning they are more or less perfectly in-sync with their set-ups. 

However, NRG Apex Legends pro Coby ‘dizzy’ Meadows slightly differs from the pair. His game sensitivity comes in at a lower number of 2.5, while his aim down sights sensitivity is the same – at one. 

Respawn EntertainmentShroud and The Doc form a deadly duo in battle royale titles.

Peripherals

Shroud is decked out in HyperX peripherals like his his keyboard, mouse pad and headphones. However, he uses a Logitech mouse – similar to how Dizzy does, but using a wireless version compared to the NRG pros wired mouse. 

The Doc’s partnership with Razer means he’s using their keyboard and mouses instead of shroud’s HyperX and Logitech combo. However, it’s not fully advisable to go out and splash the cash trying to become the next shroud.

Field of vision

The Field of Vision [FOV] setting can be a big thing for gamers as to what they can see on-screen during a game at any point. This allows them to see – or in some cases, not – see enemies based on their FOV setting. 

Unforuntately, ProSettings does not list either shroud’s or Dr Disrespect’s FOV setting. However, Dizzy’s is listed at 110 – the same number as his teammate KingRichard and Rogue pro Jordan ‘HusKers’ Thomas. 

Respawn, Game RantUsing Bloodhound won’t help your vision if your FOV is too small.

Monitors

Both shroud and Dizzy use a BenQ XL2546 monitor, a popular choice between streamers – as it is also used by shroud’s pal and former CS:GO teammate, Tyler ‘Skadoddle’ Latham. 

The Doc opts for a different monitor –  an ASUS PG258Q. It’s the other popular choice for streamers like FaZe Clan Fortnite pro Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, fomrer Overwatch league pro Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel and Dizzy’s NRG teammate KingRichard. 

It is always good to know the exact settings that are being used by some of the very best, but it’s probably best to just try and improve your in-game mechanics. 

Time and practice is a better option than heading out and spending all your money on a brand new set-up, particularly if you’re new to the game.

Respawn Entertainment has announced that they are delaying the official release of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, after announcing their launch on Steam for PC players.

The news that Apex was coming to Switch was first shared during the EA Play Live event on June 18, where they revealed the next stages of the game’s development. It finally put a host of rumors and leaks to bed since Apex’s debut back in 2019, as players wanted to immediately take the Arena with them on-the-go shortly after launch.

The news would have opened the game to expand its player count by millions, but Switch players will now have to wait a little longer after further delays were announced.

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date

Respawn confirmed that the new Switch port has been delayed until early 2021 after it was expected to arrive with the Steam version of the game.

“For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time,” Apex Game Director Chad Grenier confirmed, on October 23.

“This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out,” the Respawn dev continued, “Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year.”

EA
Apex Legends will be on all the major consoles in early 2021.

While it is being delayed, he confirmed that it still arrive with all of the expected features, “of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.”

This won’t be the first time a major battle royale comes to Nintendo Switch. EA and Apex Legends are going to compete against Epic Games and Fortnite for the many battle royale fans on the platform.

The initial announcement was a longtime coming. Reports for a Nintendo Switch port have been around for about as long as Apex Legends has been released to the world.

In a 2019 interview only months after Apex’s release, Project lead at the time, Drew McCoy, said that the company knew a Nintendo port was on many people’s wishlist. Since then, it’s been a waiting game for Nintendo fans who have been waiting to get into the Arena.

Respawn Entertainment
Players from all walks of consoles will be able to drop into Apex Legends soon.

There were a lot of questions revolving around the technical limitations of the Switch that would be a hurdle for a port, but the developers are now committed to releasing it early in 2021.

It’s unclear what the download size for the Switch version will be, so stay tuned to Dexerto for all the latest information on the upcoming Apex Legends port.
