Apex Legends Mobile has finally arrived with the exact fierce, fast-paced gunfights and mechanics similar to the PC version. To make the experience better, it comes with its own set of features that lets you tweak certain aspects of the game, including framerates.
Players who play the game competitively prefer 120 FPS, which guarantees better response time and a much smoother experience. However, given how taxing it is on the mobile, does it support 120 FPS? Stick to the article to find out.
Apex Legends Mobile: Is 120 FPS possible?
There’s no support for 120 FPS for Apex Legends Mobile, as the high-end mobile can go up to 90 FPS at max. If EA drops an update for 120 FPS, we’ll keep you updated as soon as possible. Mobile devices have come a long way when it comes to a proper AAA experience, especially online shooters like Apex Legends Mobile, which perfectly emulates the PC version experience.
Phones with a higher refresh rate have gone up to 90 FPS max in similar BR games like PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty: Mobile. However, there’s a good chance the game won’t get 120 FPS support as it can overheat the device and drains the battery very quickly.
However, you can play the game in 90 FPS if you own the latest iOS device. While it does feel great, it comes with its issues, your phone will need charging after a few rounds, and overheating will further worsen than 30 FPS.
Apex Legends Mobile offers four settings that let you cap FPS: Balanced, High, Ultra, and Extremely High. If you want the best experience, playing the game on High settings is best as it’ll cap the game at 45 FPS and conserves battery, preventing overheating as opposed to Extremely High settings.
If you want the silky smooth 60 FPS consistently on your device, you need to tweak a few settings to achieve that. Enable the Ultra Setting to lock the game at 60 FPS by:
- Go to Settings
- Then go to Graphics and Audio
- Select Graphics Quality to Smooth
- And Frame Rate to Ultra.
Make sure to enable Adaptive Smoothing for enhanced results. With the settings enabled, you’ll get 55-60 FPS even in the most demanding areas and spot enemies quickly.
