Converting Sensitivity From Overwatch

Apex Legends Vs Overwatch
To get a sensitivity close to your preference from 'Overwatch,' just divide by two. Blizzard Entertainment

If you're coming to Apex Legends from Overwatch, here are a few tips you should know.

  • The sensitivity system is different:
    • Players have had luck dividing their Overwatch sensitivity by two or multiplying their Overwatch sensitivity by 0.2.
  • It's also suggested that you turn the Field of View to 103 for the most familiar experience.

Beyond that, your keybindings and controls can remain largely the same.

That's all you need to know to get the best controls and settings in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
