Best Controller Settings for Apex Legends

Implement the best control settings!

Apex Legends is one of the few competitive battle royale games that enjoy a higher percentage of controller players even on the PC platform. This situation is mainly due to the overpowered nature of the controller aim assist feature that can destroy any mouse & keyboard players in close/mid-range battles. As a result, several M&K users, including professional players like Imperialhal, have transitioned to using controllers regularly. On that note, if you are a new controller player or a player transitioning from using a mouse and looking for some controller settings/sensitivity to begin. Don't worry, we have you covered everything from Layout to the ALC settings.
