Apex Legends is one of the most competitive battle royale games, with an ever-expanding player base. In a game like this, players who pay attention to the tiniest of details can carve themselves an edge over the enemy. And how many frames per second (FPS) their system is pushing is a huge factor in this.

In Apex Legends, frame rate can impact a player's chances of winning games. To perfect a flick shot with a sniper or shotgun and track an enemy without missing a bullet, a high frame rate is important. Due to this, all professional Apex players strive to have set ups that can produce high frame rates at all costs.


How to cap FPS in Apex Legends on Steam and Origin

Here is how players can cap FPS in Apex Legends on PC quite easily:

Today’s GPU's are capable of running games like Apex Legends at a much higher frame rate than the current cap. Players can set a cap on both Steam and Origin by following these steps. Before changing the frame rate cap, one must close the game in order to access the launch options.

Steam

  • Open Steam
  • Go to Library and right click on Apex Legends
  • A drop down list will show a few options. Click on Properties
  • Locate the Launch Options field in General Properties
  • In that field, type +fps_max <required frame rate>
  • For example, if the player wants to cap the frame rate at 200 frames per second, then the code would be +fps_max 200

Origin

  • Open Origin
  • Access the game library and right click on Apex Legends
  • Click on Game Properties
  • Locate Advanced Launch Options
  • In that field type +fps_max <required frame rate>
  • For example, if the player wants to cap the frame rate at 200 frames per second, then the code would be +fps_max 200

Apex Legends players also have the option of removing the frame cap by typing +fps_max unlimited

While most players will be looking to get as many frames as possible, capping one's framerate leads to more reliable frame times and less screen-tearing, and Apex Legends players can do this fairly easily. Note that this option is only available for those playing on PC, and not for console players.
