Best Apex Legends ALC Settings [2023]

This guide explains everything, you need to know about the ALC Settings in Apex Legends. There are also some settings listed for you to try.

ALC stands for Advance Look Control Settings in Apex. As the name suggests, it controls the viewing aspect of the game. However, it does more than just control your looks. Excellent ALC controller settings can turn you into a pro player, such as Imerialhal, with god-like aim-accuracy. The amount of accuracy you get just by changing these settings is unreal. Not just accuracy in your aim, but your recoil control will improve significantly.

That is why we have curated the Apex Legends ALC settings guide so that you can master these settings and become a professional player such as Shroud or Dizzy in the game. 

Key Highlights
  • ALC Settings are for Apex Legends controller players. These basically adjust the sensitivity of your aim stick on the controller. 
  • Setting this properly can make a huge amount of difference in your performance, you can do all of this by going to the Controller Settings in your game.
  • Setting your Deadzone means adjusting how fast it reacts, it is really beneficial though on cheap controllers it creates a drift issue.
  • You can set the individual sensitivity for each scope multiplier, this can be done using the Per Optic ADS Sensitivity setting.
  • The Yaw & Pitch Speed decides the sensitivity of the player looking left & right and up & down.
  • Turning Ramp-up Time will increase the time taken to reach the maximum speed of the set Yaw & Pitch. It helps in the precision of your aim.
  • You can adjust your Aimed Down Sight setting, this should be kept slightly lower than all the previous settings for best results.
  • Target Compensation adjusts the aim for you. Keeping this on for new players is really essential.
  • Melee Target Compensation is the same thing as above, however, it is only for melee weapons.

ALC Apex Legends Settings

The ALC Settings in Apex Legends can be set up by going to the Controller Settings. Here are detailed steps to find and customize the ALC settings.

ALC setting how to enable in Apex
Steps to Enable ALC Settings in Apex
  1. Firstly, go to settings. You can go there by clicking the settings icon from the main menu.
  2. In the settings, press R1 or RB to get the Controller Portion
  3. Lastly, scroll down to the Movement / Aiming. You will find the ALC option at the very bottom in Movement / Aiming.
  4. Click it, and inside there, enable ALC Settings. 

Once enabled, ALC Settings disables some of Apex’s basic Movement / Aiming settings. The ALC settings let the player control their aiming and sensitivity settings to a much greater level. In ALC, there are two main settings that get affected; the first is hip firing, and the second is ADS. There are many settings in ALC, and this guide will explain each one of those.  

ALC Settings Explained
ALC Settings Explained In Apex


This setting is one of the most important ALC settings in Apex Legends. Deadzone setting is responsible for when your input is going to get registered. So having a lower Deadzone means that you will register your input as soon as you move your stick. But if you are using an older or cheaper controller, then there will be a slight drift when it’s lowered all the way.

On the other hand, if you have a higher Deadzone, your input will be registered way later than recommended. Have your Deadzone set to the lowest and keep increasing until there is no drift to get the best results. It is something ACEU does while playing competitive plays in Apex Legends.

Outer Threshold

The Outer Threshold in the Apex Legends ALC settings is not as crucial as the Deadzone, but it still plays a role in your aiming. This setting is simply the opposite of what the Deadzone does. It’s the ending at which your input stops being registered. Having a higher Outer Threshold means that you will reach the max aiming speed quicker but lose control. That’s why having these settings at a level where you can easily handle them is the best. Or you can keep them all the way below.

Responsive Curve

The Responsive Curve setting plays a crucial role in your aim’s accuracy. Although this setting is explained in the top right corner of the Apex ALC Settings, that explanation does not tell you what it does or how important it really is. Simply put, the Responsive Curve setting is responsible for the speed at which your reticle moves after you move your thumbstick.

Having a higher Responsive Curve will make your aim feel sluggish and slow, so it’s pretty useless to have it set on a higher level. But if these settings are set to 0, then the aim might feel too quick. The best thing to do here is to experiment with different settings starting from the lowest and slowly going up until you can comfortably control your aim accurately. You can also try to master the Responsive Curve setting at 0, which gives you way more freedom than any other ALC setting.

Per Optic ADS Sensitivity

This ALC setting is straightforward in Apex, and if turned on, it allows you to customize your sensitivity settings for each Optic, for example, 1x, 2x, 3x, and so on. By default, this setting is turned off, and we recommend having it off. But if you are an advanced player with a good grip and understanding of sensitivity, then go ahead and adjust these settings to match your style.

Yaw & Pitch Speed

Pitch and Yaw Speed settings are probably the most straightforward ALC settings in Apex Legends. The Yaw speed does what it tells you in the game: the speed at which you will look left or right. Then the Pitch speed is responsible for the speed at which you look up and down. Though both settings are pretty similar, they don’t have to be identical.

In Apex Legends, you look left and right more often than up and down. So having Yaw speed slightly higher than Pitch speed is very reasonable. But at the same time, those who want that picture-perfect accuracy should have both these settings maxed out and at equal levels. Still, you can experiment with different variations to get your own groove. 

Turning Extra Yaw & Pitch

The Extra Yaw And Pitch are confusing, but they play a major role in your accuracy. Many Apex Legends players don’t understand these settings’ important role in ALC. Firstly you should know what exactly these settings are. Simply put, they are a boost for the Pitch and Yaw Speed, but that boost kicks in when you hit the limit of their speed. There are two ways to utilize these settings. The first is to completely turn them off and keep the Pitch and Yaw speed as high as possible for you to handle. 

You will not have any sudden and extra boost to your Pitch and Yaw Speed by doing this. When you are in the game, it’s hard to tell when you hit the limit of your Pitch and Yaw speed. Then the second way is by keeping Pitch and Yaw Speed at a reasonable amount and then having a bit of Extra Pitch and Yaw. Don’t set these settings too high, as you will lose track of your enemies that way. Keep Yaw slightly higher than Pitch or turn Extra Pitch completely off. These settings are suited for more beginner-level players since they won’t be accurate with the first settings.  

Turning Ramp-up Time

Turning Ramp-up ALC settings in Apex is directly connected with the Extra Pitch and Yaw Speed settings. Let’s look at exactly what this setting does. This setting is responsible for the amount of time it takes for your aim to reach max speed. So having a Higher Ramp-up Time means that it will reach the peak of Extra Pitch or Yaw speed set by you later. On the other hand, lowering it will help reach the peak Extra Pitch or Yaw speed without any delay. 

If you are a new or beginner, then having a bit of Ramp-up time will help but don’t set it up too high. This will allow you to be accurate and control your aim better. But if, on the other hand, you are a pro or advanced player, then turn Ramp-up time completely off as this will allow you to have complete control over your aim and speed. Plus, if you don’t have any Extra Yaw or Pitch Speed set, then it’s not going to impact your aim at all.

Turning Ramp-up Delay

Now Turning Ramp-up Delay is very similar to the previous setting but not quite. This Apex ALC setting decides when the Extra Pitch and Yaw settings will kick in, but the previous setting is responsible for its time to reach the maximum speed. But the Ramp-up setting is pretty much useless for all the players. Having it higher will give a sudden boost in aiming. So having it off is the best thing to do. 

Aimed Down Sight (ADS) ALC Setting

Below all the Apex ALC settings, you will find the same settings with ADS. If you don’t know what these settings are, they are basically the same settings as the previous, but they kick in when you aim. It is for accuracy when you normally aim, so having some of these settings lower than the previous ones with slight tweaks at Ramp-up settings would make sense. But if you are a pro player, you can customize your ADS ALC settings to match your play style. 

Target Compensation

Target Compensation is simply the fancy setting name for Aimbot. This Apex ALC setting works like any other aimbots settings would in an FPS game. For new players, it’s recommended to keep this setting on as having that will help them aim better. But for advanced players, it’s optional to keep it on or off since sometimes it will reduce the pinpoint accuracy. 

Melee Target Compensation

Melee Target Compensation Apex ALC Setting works exactly the same as the Target Compensation settings but with melee weapons. But this setting is better kept on for newbies and advanced players the same. Since with melee weapons, mostly it matters if you hit. You are guaranteed to miss most of your melee hits without these settings.

Now that we have learned what each ALC setting does in Apex Legends let’s look at some of the best settings. Below we have listed three settings for all players: beginners, pros, or average players.
