Who Is ShivFPS

Shivam “ShivFPS” Patel is an Apex Legends streamer and content creator for Luminosity Gaming. He also participates in Apex Legends tournaments with his team soloQgoats. He currently has 1.4 million Twitch followers and 319 thousand subscribers on YouTube.

His popularity skyrocketed in recent months and it has come to a point where he has a second YouTube channel dedicated to his Japanese audience. He also has a third channel full of YouTube shorts.

ShivFPS grew in popularity because of his rage moments while playing Apex Legends. This is one of the reasons why people drop by his stream – to see him rage at cheaters or even teammates. Then people would stay once they see how entertaining his stream is.

He does not play with a pre-made squad yet regularly reaches the Masters rank in Apex Legends. This makes him a unique streamer and it is one of the things that make people flock to his stream.

He is also known for his beard which is iconic in the Apex Legends community. One look at his bearded shadow and players already know that it is him. He once shaved his beard and people started to call him “ShaveFPS”.

Lastly, he is known as the best Bangalore player in the world. Despite meta changes, he continues to use the legend even in tournaments. However, their recent tournament struggles made him ditch her for a meta legend.

ShivFPS set his Texture Streaming Budget to Insane. However, he balances his gaming setup’s performance by bringing all the other settings down. This produces a high number of framerates to ensure smooth gameplay.

ShivFPS is using a Logitech G Pro X Superlight mouse set at 400 DPI. His in-game mouse setting is 3.0 with an ADS multiplier of 1.

Some users have commented that this mouse sensitivity coupled with the 90 FOV makes the gameplay feel sluggish. If you are going to try ShivFPS settings, especially the FOV and sensitivity, you might have to spend a lot of time practicing.

ShivFPS has a different PC for streaming. This ensures that his Apex Legends gameplay is smooth and his framerates do not drop.

Having a secondary PC for streaming relieves the workload on your gaming PC. In turn, both computers can focus on either streaming or gaming only.

ShivFPS has a great gaming setup. The G Pro X Superlight is a well-regarded mouse and the Ducky One 2 Mini has great reviews too.

His setup is top-tier considering he competes professionally too. Also, he has a backup computer for when his main PC fails – something that happened during the ALGS qualifiers.

Does ShivFPS Use A Controller?

ShivFPS mainly uses a mouse and keyboard to play Apex Legends. But he also knows how to play with a controller. Sometimes he plugs in his controller whenever his Twitch community tells him in exchange of gifted subs or direct donations.

He uploads his content on his YouTube channel including gameplay using a controller.

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.

Wrapping Up

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.
