Apex Legends and Fortnite squads, bringing on lots of new players.

100 Thieves already had a strong presence in Fortnite thanks to members like Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, who is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, and regularly competes in competitive tournaments under the 100 Thieves banner.

NICKMERCS will not be the sole 100 Thieves competitor at major Fortnite competitions going forward, while the California-based organization has also turned their attention to another battle royale that has captured the imagination of the gaming community – Apex Legends.

100 Thieves have finalized their Apex Legends squad.

Joining the 100 Thieves Fortnite team is Davis ‘Ceice’ McClean, Hayden ‘Elevate’ Krueger, Maurillo ‘Blind’ Gramajo and Kyzui, who will represent the organization in both content creation and competition.

100 Thieves also announced their brand new Apex Legends squad, who will compete on a game that Nadeshot described as “the most interesting battle royale title I’ve seen.” Joining Justin ‘Teenage’ Phipps will be former Destiny star Connor ‘Gigz’ White and Isiaih ‘Lifted’ Slowik, who previously competed in H1Z1.

In an announcement video for the organization’s new rosters, Haag explained what prompted 100 Thieves to add these new members, saying: “Battle royales cannot be ignored any longer. This is a gigantic genre that will only continue to get bigger and evolve. We decided it was time to revamp the roster and bring on talent that had performed really well this past year and had proven they are the highest calibre of player.”

Nadeshot says that 100 Thieves intend to throw the full weight of the organization behind the players to help elevate themselves and their careers.

Apex Legends currently has no major tournaments scheduled, but the 100 Thieves Fortnite team will now turn their attention to qualification for the Fortnite World Cup, which takes place later in the year.

Having the perfect setup is one of the keys to victory in Apex Legends, with FOV being a hotly debated topic every season. So, we’ve got the best FOV settings that could change the game for you.

There are plenty of factors that go into having success in Apex Legends. Of course, you need to pick the right Legend for your playstyle, find strong weapons and attachments, and have some luck with the safe zone. 

Outside of those, you also need to get settings that fit too. This laundry list of options includes the FOV, or Field of View, that allows you to see more, or less if you want, of the action depending on what feels comfortable. 

It’s an adjustable setting, so depending on the day, you might decide to try something else. So, if you want to make a tweak, we’ve got a few options that will fit a few different playstyles.

Deciding on your FOV setting can be a game-changer in Apex.

105 FOV

Most players might see the FOV setting and quickly bump it up so that they can see everything, and while that doesn’t work for everyone, it is a viable option.

In that case, you’ll want to bump it up to around 105, because you’ll be able to see players clearly on both the right and left side of the screen, while also retaining a somewhat central feeling to your FOV.

It will have a slight drawback if you’re fighting at range because it won’t give you that tunnel vision-like feeling of a lower setting, but if you’re playing with a higher FOV, that’s unlikely to be your playstyle anyway. If you sit physically farther away from your TV/monitor, this very wide FOV will make it trickier for you to spot targets far in the distance.

Picking an FOV setting is based on your playstyle and there’s no ‘one size fits all’ option.

90 FOV

Setting your FOV to 90 is perfect if you want to strike a balance between fighting at both long and short-range as it offers good vision for both.

Going with 90 doesn’t give you the tunnel vision-like feeling of slightly lower settings, and is a bit more natural than reaching 100 or even going beyond that. You’ll feel like whatever enemy you’re targeting is in the middle of your view at all times.

70-75 FOV

Now, if you want something that is very long-range focused, going between 70-75 is the best option, regardless of whether you’re on PC or a console.

Yes, you won’t be able to see everything to your side, of course, but everything that appears at distance will be more central in your view rather than just being a speck of dust in some others. 


Just like having a favorite legend and weapon, setting the FOV is a personal choice and, yes, you can follow pro players, but what works for them might not work for everyone. 

A higher FOV can also reduce frame rate, so if you’re not on a powerful PC setup, you may notice reduced FPS on a higher FOV setting.

But, it might be worth giving these different values a try to see if it improves your game and helps you pick up more wins than before.
