What is the best Apex reticle color? Explained

Take your best shot.

To most casual Apex Legends players, the reticle color may be something that can easily be overlooked. But once you fiddle around with the settings and find the endless colors you can change it to using the saturation slider, it can be difficult to figure out which will work best for you right off the bat. We've listed our personal best Apex reticle color and a couple of others for you to consider.

The best reticle color in Apex Legends

Green (0 235 40) is what we consider the best reticle color in Apex. It's the most visible reticle, even on maps with mostly grass like Habitat 4. By nature, the human eye perceives this color best. You can tweak it to a darker or muted hue to make it more translucent for better aim, even in long range.

What to take note of when using the green reticle:

  • It has the best visibility across all maps
  • It can be tweaked to preference, but all shades still work perfectly

Other great Apex reticle colors

Of course, if green isn't to your taste, you can always choose another color. Below is a quick list.

Yellow: 250 255 45

A basic yellow shade pops out nicely, which helps you easily target any enemy within your line of sight. You may need to use the saturation slider to make it as bright as you can so you do not lose it on maps with snow and lava. 

What to take note of when using the yellow reticle:

  • Best visibility on most maps
  • You may want to adjust it to a brighter hue to adjust for maps with snow and lava

Blue: 65 75 255

For long-range shots, ADSing, and even in close combat, blue is the perfect color. It is hard to miss yet it still gives you the transparency you need for seeing enemies through. You can make it slightly brighter to make it easier for you to see even on maps with lots of water.

What to take note of when using the pale blue reticle:

  • Great for long-range, ADS, and close combat
  • You may need to make it a bit more vivid to adjust on maps with water

Pink/Magenta: 255 20 195/255 0 255

For seasoned players who would like to switch it up, pink is your perfect go-to reticle color. It also clearly stands out on any map, so it's a good pick even for beginners. If you prioritize your long-range shots, you should tone them down to make them appear a bit more translucent, which helps for a better aim.

What to take note of when using the pink reticle:

  • Stands out well on all maps, so it's great even for beginners
  • You may want to make it a bit more muted to adjust for long-range shots

Red: 235 30 0

While red also gives you good visibility on most maps, it can be an acquired preference. For seasoned FPS players, this shouldn't be a problem. For casuals and beginners, red is a good reticle color to practice your aim. However, you may want to tweak it a bit as it tends to blend in the maps with lava.

What to take note of when using the red reticle:

  • Good visibility on most maps
  • Great for beginners to train their aim, but it may need some tweaking to adjust to your preference, so you do not lose it in maps with lava

White: 255 255 255

You can never go wrong with just a basic white reticle. It's the easiest reticle color to set, as you can simply slide the saturation bar to the farthest right. However, if your eyesight is not as good and you are more of a casual player, you may want to start with other colors instead when training your aim, as you may lose your reticle during intense combat.

What to take note of when using the white reticle:

  • Does not need tweaking at all, easy to set
  • It might be easy to lose sight of for beginners or those with poorer eyesight in intense combat
