Expert Controller Settings in Apex Legends

Expert Controller Settings in Apex Legends

Become an absolute legend and gain the advantage with the best possible controller settings in Apex Legends Season 8. 

In the last part of this 3 part guide, we'll be going over all of our recommended game settings in combination with controller settings to really improve how you play. 

Keep in mind that the SCUF Infinity4PSPro and SCUF IMPACT are only compatible with the PS4 editions of COD: Black Ops Cold War. For more information on compatibility, check here.

Expert Game Settings

Now that you know about all the mechanical changes that you will make you a better player, let’s move onto the digital settings so that you can get the most out of your gameplay with your SCUF. We recommend going into your Apex Legends settings and making a couple tweaks. 

Increase how much you can see on your screen by bumping up Field of View:

  • Go into Settings > Video > Field Of View > Push it to the max (110)

Decrease the amount of information taking up your screen space when picking up items by changing the Interact Prompt Style:

  • Go into Settings > Gameplay > Interact Prompt Style > Compact

See how much damage each shot the enemy is taking by changing Damage Numbers from Stacking to Floating:

  • Go into Settings > Gameplay > Damage Numbers > Floating

Like we discussed in Getting Started in Apex Legends  Paddles help you keep your thumbs on the sticks. This is important to be able to stay locked on the enemy with your aim, but also be able to defend yourself, reload, or swap weapons during a fight. 

These layouts cover all your essential functions so you don’t have to sacrifice your aim and movement. You can also try remapping to other layouts to find the best one for how you like to play. 


Digital TAP Bumpers and Digital Triggers

These features completely eliminate the range of movement of the bumpers and triggers and provides a feel similar to a mouse click. This is only recommended for players who only play shooter games.

The Digital TAP Bumpers and Digital Triggers are currently only available for SCUF IMPACT & SCUF Infinity4PSPRO. 


Trigger Control System

SCUF’s Trigger Control system is available on every controller model and offers full trigger customization through adjustable trigger stops and hair triggers.

For Call of Duty, you will want to have your trigger stops on unless you plan on using vehicles (which require the full trigger motion to operate).They will reduce the amount your trigger has to travel past the activation point and will allow for faster shooting and aiming, especially efficient with semi-automatic weapons. 

To further tune your trigger movement, the hair triggers will allow you to modify the distance to the activation point so firing and aiming becomes a one-tap process.You should only adjust your hair triggers in game; start by turning the key until you hit the activation point which is where your weapon will start shooting on its own, then dial it back 1 turn, or to your preference. 


High Performance Grip

While you’re playing for hours on end earning wins, high-performance grip will reduce slippage and increase comfort during long hours of play. Don’t let sweaty hands get in the way of your wins.  

Play like a Pro

Now that you have customized the different aspects of your controller and tuned your gameplay settings, it’s time to jump in-game and test your new setup using these Apex Legends controller settings. Like every change, adjusting to these new settings may take some time - however, with practice and dedication, every SCUF feature will help you reach your full potential and transform from Legend to Champion.
