Best Apex Legends ALC Settings [Detailed Guide]

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. 

<strong>Key Highlights</strong>

ALC Settings are for Apex Legends controller players. These basically adjust the sensitivity of your aim stick on the controller. 

  • Deadzone: Adjusts reaction speed; beneficial but may cause drift on cheap controllers.
  • Per Optic ADS Sensitivity: Set sensitivity for each scope multiplier.
  • Yaw & Pitch Speed: Determines left/right and up/down sensitivity.
  • Turning Ramp-up Time: Increases time to reach maximum speed, enhancing aim precision.
  • Aimed Down Sight setting: Keep slightly lower than other settings for optimal results.
  • Target Compensation: Automatically adjusts aim, essential for new players.
  • Melee Target Compensation: Similar to above, but for melee weapons only.

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.

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.

There are many settings in ALC, and this guide will explain each one of those.  

  1. Deadzone:

    • Determines when your controller inputs are registered. Lower values result in more immediate response but may cause drift on older controllers.
    • It is something ACEU does while playing competitive plays in Apex Legends.
  2. Outer Threshold:

    • Controls the point at which your inputs reach maximum speed. Higher values make your aim reach maximum speed more quickly but may sacrifice control.
  3. Responsive Curve:

    • Adjusts the speed at which your reticle moves after moving the thumbstick. Experiment with different settings to find a balance between speed and control.
  4. Per Optic ADS Sensitivity:

    • Allows customization of sensitivity settings for each optic. Useful for advanced players who prefer specific sensitivities for different magnifications.
  5. Yaw & Pitch Speed:

    • Determines the speed at which you look horizontally (yaw) and vertically (pitch). Adjust according to personal preference and playstyle.
  6. Turning Extra Yaw & Pitch:

    • Provides a boost to yaw and pitch speed when reaching their limits. Use cautiously to avoid losing control during fast movements.
  7. Ramp-up Time:

    • Adjusts the time it takes for your aim to reach maximum speed. Higher values introduce a delay, while lower values provide more immediate response.
  8. Ramp-up Delay:

    • Determines when the extra yaw and pitch speed settings kick in. Keep it off for more consistent aiming.
  9. Aimed Down Sight (ADS) Settings:

    • Similar to regular ALC settings but specifically for aiming down sights. Customize these settings to match your ADS preferences.
  10. Target Compensation:

    • Functions like an aim assist or aimbot, helping players aim more accurately. Useful for beginners but optional for advanced players.
  11. Melee Target Compensation:
    • Similar to target compensation but specifically for melee attacks. Recommended for all players to improve melee accuracy.

Final Verdict

These settings are essential, but they are not required. Some players may find them helpful, while others won’t. So if you didn’t improve with these settings, feel free to turn ALC Settings off. Because some Apex Pro players play without the ALC settings enabled. Everything boils down to personal preference at the end of the da. So, choose what you want, and watch this video if you need further help setting up ALC in Apex Legends.
