Should You Use ShivFPS Settings
ShivFPS is possibly one of the best streamers in Apex Legends both in entertainment value and skills. However, his settings are unconventional, especially the FOV. It is too low for a fast-paced movement game. You may use his settings but everything will feel slower than the usual high FOV.
You may copy his video settings though. It is easily achievable and will help you gain more FPS while playing. Do not expect that your graphics detail will be top-notch though.
Only use ShivFPS if you want to prioritize FPS over anything. Besides, Apex Legends is a fast-paced game and it gets taxing for your graphics card so it is highly suggested that you adjust accordingly.
These are the Apex Legends settings of ShivFPS. Feel free to copy his settings. However, do not expect that you will be like him in a snap. It takes a lot of practice and thousands of hours of gameplay to reach his level.
