Who is HisWattson?

Jacob “HisWattson” McMillin is a professional Apex Legends player and streamer.

Among the best Apex legends players currently, and widely cited as the best Seer player, being responsible for their popularity.

A very independent person, HisWattson would start his career on May 31st, 2020, entering ALGS Online #6. Slowly yet surely he would climb up the ranks, dropping out of college to focus full time on his career.

His dedication would pay off, as he would begin winning more events, being signed with FURIA on May 31st, 2022, and recently getting 2nd place in the ALGS 2022 championships, with his team earning 300,000$ in rewards.

Customization is an essential part of any respectable first-person shooter, and Apex Legends is no exception. Those who have played the game know that it offers many customization options that players can use to tailor their gameplay experience.

This amount of customization can be staggering, especially to those who are just starting out, so a good way of dealing with the issue is to copy them from a professional player, and then adjust the settings until you find them suitable to your needs.

HisWattson mouse settings are tailored to his personal preferences, as any professional gamer’s settings should be. His mouse settings are quite different from what you would see from any other professional player, with a notably high Mouse sensitivity. He uses a Razer Viper Ultimate.

HisWattson Apex Legends Keybinds

So far, most of HisWattson’s settings featured a degree of personalization and unique twists tailored to his preferences, and, just like that his keybindings are quite unique

It is true that the default key bind settings may be ideal as you don’t need to set up your keybinds every time you play on a new PC, however, the time it takes to update your own custom keybinds can be worth it if they help you play better.
