Apex Legends | How to Get Maximum FPS (FPS Boost Guide)

If you are running Apex Legends on a Low-End PC, you would want to get the Maximum FPS from the game. In this FPS Boost Guide, we will show you how to do that. You can also try this for high-end PCs, but since it will hamper the visual experience, only Low-End rigs should go for this.

How to Get Maximum FPS (FPS Boost Guide) for Apex Legends

Main Settings

  • Go to: Local Disk > Users > “User” > Saved Games > Respawn > Apex > Local
  • Edit the file called “videoconfig”
  • Do the following settings for the parameters after that:

“setting.cl_gib_allow” “0”
“setting.cl_particle_fallback_base” “3”
“setting.cl_particle_fallback_multiplier” “2”
“setting.cl_ragdoll_maxcount” “0”
“setting.cl_ragdoll_self_collision” “0”
“setting.mat_forceaniso” “1”
“setting.mat_mip_linear” “0”
“setting.stream_memory” “400000”
“setting.mat_picmip” “2”
“setting.particle_cpu_level” “0”
“setting.r_createmodeldecals” “0”
“setting.r_decals” “0”
“setting.r_lod_switch_scale” “0.350000”
“setting.shadow_enable” “0”
“setting.shadow_depth_dimen_min” “0”
“setting.shadow_depth_upres_factor_max” “0”
“setting.shadow_maxdynamic” “0”
“setting.ssao_enabled” “0”
“setting.ssao_downsample” “3”
“setting.dvs_enable” “0”
“setting.dvs_gpuframetime_min” “6592”
“setting.dvs_gpuframetime_max” “6800”
“setting.defaultres” “1920”
“setting.defaultresheight” “1080”
“setting.fullscreen” “1”
“setting.nowindowborder” “0”
“setting.volumetric_lighting” “0”
“setting.mat_vsync_mode” “0”
“setting.mat_backbuffer_count” “1”
“setting.mat_antialias_mode” “0”
“setting.csm_enabled” “0”
“setting.csm_coverage” “1”
“setting.csm_cascade_res” “512”
“setting.fadeDistScale” “1.000000”
“setting.dvs_supersample_enable” “0”
“setting.gamma” “0.973214”
“setting.configversion” “7”

  • Save the file. Now go to Properties of the file and make file read-only. (Right click the file, check box “Read-only”)
  • This is because, if you change the in-game settings otherwise, it will revert everything back to normal.

Additional Settings (Optional)

These settings will boost FPS even further, but it will NOT make the game look good at all. If you are fine with a small amount of pixelated edges and willing to sacrifice visual experience, then go forth with these settings:

  • “setting.r_lod_switch_scale” “0.350000”
  • “setting.dvs_enable” “1”
  • “setting.dvs_gpuframetime_min” “1”
  • “setting.dvs_gpuframetime_max” “1”

Since we are editing the videoconfig file, make sure to make a backup before doing these. In case of any issues, simply restore the original file to fix these issues. We have not listed the in-game settings because making changes in the settings file will overwrite any in-game settings. If you face any issues during and/or after the setup, let us know in the comments below.

That would be all for this walkthrough. Thanks for reading and we will see you with a new Apex Legends Guide!
