After pasting your CS2 sensitivity in Apex Legends, the procedure is now complete.

However, since Apex Legends is a fast-paced game with an exceptional amount of movement, it is recommended that you turn up the sensitivity a little bit. For example, if your Counter-Strike 2 sensitivity is 1.2, try turning it up to 1.4 – 1.8 for a better performance.

Additionally, keep your mouse DPI the same as it might affect your gameplay for both games. This is because playing on different DPIs may lead to some complications to your muscle memory, which can affect your performance while playing Valve's free-to-play first-person shooter.
