System Requirements FAQ

  • How do I show my FPS?
    1. Open Origin.
    2. Click Origin in the top menu bar.
    3. Choose Application Settings.
    4. Select the Origin In-Game tab.
    5. Under During Gameplay, choose where to show the FPS counter or to not display it at all.
  • What should I upgrade to get a better game experience?
It depends on how you play and who you ask. Most people will tell you that strictly upgrading your monitor's refresh rate and computer performance is the only thing that matters since it will show you when enemies get into your line of sight faster. It's true that it will help you, but Apex Legends gives an edge to the team that uses sound, positioning, and team synergy over mechanical reflexes. The frame rate can only help so much and spending lots of money to gain a reaction advantage isn't worth pursuing over other methods of improving. For those who want to upgrade to get a smoother experience without breaking the bank, consider investing in a free sync monitor. A free sync monitor will remove screen tearing without requiring you to buy high-end parts. Look into 75-144hz free sync monitors. If you have an NVIDIA card make sure that the free sync monitor has NVIDIA support.
