But not all of us have that great PC setup with high-end specs, yet we want to play this amazing game like it should be played, SMOOTHLY!

That’s where we come in the picture. Our team has made some researching, digging and testing and we have collected an amazing collection of 20 WORKING METHODS which will massively boost your FPS in-game and also boost your PC performance off the game.

Lets get started with the steps, shall we?

Before you start:

Download Apex Legends FPS Boost Pack by ET

Step 1: CPU Core Parking

For this step you will need to open up the CPUCoreParking folder inside the Apex Legends FPS Boost Pack and install the application.
After the installation is complete, run the program.
After the program is launched, you need to to set every bar to 100%.
If you haven’t done this already, expect that your FPS will increase by at least 20% just by doing this.

Set all the bars to 100% and click Apply.


Set all the bars to 100% and click Apply.

Step 2: Cleaning temporary files

Once you’ve downloaded the Apex Legends FPS Boost Pack, extract it.
After you extracted the pack go ahead and open it and once you’re inside the folder, double click the “Run Command” file.
Now you want to type in %TEMP% and delete everything in this folder. Don’t worry because all of the files here are completely useless and wont harm your PC in any way possible.

Step 3: Ultimate Performance Power Plan (Win10 users only)

Open Windows PowerShell as an administrator by pressing  Windows + X + A

Copy and paste this command in the shell:  powercfg -duplicatescheme e9a42b02-d5df-448d-aa00-03f14749eb61

After that search for “Power Plan” (or find it in control panel), open it and select Ultimate Performance Plan as your power plan.


Step 4: Boot Settings

Now you need to go back to the Apex Legends FPS Boost Pack and open up System Configuration.
In the ‘General’ tab make sure ‘Selective startup’ is ticked and ‘Load startup items and services’ are ticked.
Under ‘Boot’ tab go to ‘Advanced options’ and set ‘number of processors’ to the highest value available.
Under ‘Services’ tab check ‘Hide all Microsoft services’ and disable as many of the services as you can.

Step 5: Set Apex Legends to High Priority

Open regedit (Windows + R, write ‘regedit’ and press ENTER).

Navigate to ‘Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options’
-New Key named “r5apex.exe”
-New Key named “PerfOptions”
-New DWORD 32bit named “CpuPriorityClass”
-Set value to “3”

Step 6: Disable Prefetch

Go to Run command and type in regedit, go to HKEY LOCAL Machine>SYSTEM>CurrentControlSet>SessionManager>Memory Management>Prefetch Parameters then you want to double click ‘enableprefetcher’ and set the value to 0.

Step 7: Disable OneDrive

Go to the Run command and type in gpedit.msc from here go to Administrative Tools > Windows Components > Onedrive, double click ‘Prevent the usage of OneDrive for file storage’, click enabled, apply and exit.

Step 8: Disable unnecessary services

Go back to the run command again and type in services.msc.
Here you want to find 2 services named Superfetch and Windows search. When you find them, right click on them, go to Properties and disable them both.

Step 9: Google Chrome optimization

So if you’re a Google Chrome user you’ll need to go to into the Chrome settings –> Advanced –> System and make sure ‘Hardware acceleration’ and ‘Running background apps’ are disabled.
This helps a lot even if Google Chrome isn’t running.

Step 10: Updating drivers

Congratulations! You made it to the 10th step which is updating all your drivers.
So to do that you’ll need to download and install Driver Booster.You can download it from HERE.
Once you’ve installed it click SCAN and Update all your drivers as this can help you get a better FPS in no time.

Step 11: CCleaner

First, download CCleaner and install it. You can download CCleaner from HERE.

After the installation is complete, run CCleaner.
Now you want to do a full scan and remove any unnecessary things that it detects.
You also want to scan the registry and fix any problems that it finds.

Step 12: Discord optimization

The 12th step is for people who play with their friends and talk on discord.
Launch discord and click on the gear icon.Then click Appearance and disable ‘Hardware acceleration’, restart Discord and you’re good to go!


Step 13: Boosting startup

Go to Task Manager and click on the “Startup” tab.
Next you want to disable most of whats in here as it can slow your PC down a lot so make sure that there are not more than ~2-3 programs enabled.

Step 14: Checking disk for errors/bad sectors

Next right click the Windows button and open Windows Powershell(Admin).
In the opened terminal, you simply want to type chkdsk and let it run for however long it takes.
This step could take some time but its worth it.

Open command prompt and type in 'chkdsk', press ENTER and wait until it finishes.


Open command prompt and type in ‘chkdsk’, press ENTER and wait until it finishes.

Step 15: Optimizing nVidia GPU Settings

As always for nVidia users we can not recommend it enough to go into the nVidia Control Panel by right clicking the Desktop and under ‘Adjust Image Settings with preview’, make sure that your preference is ‘Performance’.
Under ‘3D settings’ it is best to copy the settings exactly as they are here: nVidia Settings

Step 16: Disabling Origin In-Game

Launch Origin and go into My Game Library and click Apex Legends.

Next click on the gear button and click ‘Game Properties’. In the new window make sure to disable ‘Enable Origin In Game for Apex Legends’.

Step 17: Disable background apps

To this day I still see a lot of people making this mistake so what you want to do is to disable every background app while running Apex Legends.
You need to do this because everything running in the background takes the PC’s performance away from the game and into those apps.

Step 18: In-game tweaks and optimization

Launch Apex Legends and go inside the game.
Next once you’re inside of the game go into Settings.
Make sure all your settings are exactly as shown here: Settings Link

Step 19: Sound Optimization

Search for Sound(Or look into Control Panel).
Then launch it, go to Playback tab, right click on Speakers and click Properties.
Go into the “Enchantments” tab and enable ‘disable all sound effects’ checkbox.
Next go to “Advanced” tab and set the quality(format) to the lowest possible(lowest HZ).

Search for


Search for “Sound”
Open Sound and go to Playback tab


Open Sound and go to Playback tab
Make sure to pick the lowest format of the dropdown list (lowest HZ)


Make sure to pick the lowest format of the dropdown list (lowest HZ)

Step 20: Apex compatibility optimizations

Go into the installation folder of Apex Legends(~OriginGames/Apex).

Look for r5apex.exe file and right click on it, click Properties and go into the Compatibility tab.
Now make sure ‘Disable fullscreen optimizations’ checkbox is not checked.
Next click on ‘Change High DPI settings’ and in the new tab under ‘High DPI scalling override’, check the box saying ‘Override high DPI scalling behavior’.
Now make sure that under the dropdown list of ‘Scalling performed by:’ you select ‘Application’.
Click Apply and you are done.
