Turning on your FPS in Apex Legends can help you figure out your PC performance.

FPS or frames-per-second helps players determine how smooth your game will be. Most players aim for around 60 FPS as a standard in Apex Legends. Too low of an FPS can ruin your immersion and stop you from making that clutch play. Too high of an FPS is great to make the action even smoother but this can put a strain on your graphics card in the long run. However, to figure out what your FPS is in the first place, you'll need to turn it on in Apex Legends through the settings. Doing this can help you determine what FPS you're currently playing at and make any necessary adjustments to your performance settings. In this article, we will see how to show FPS in Apex Legends in-game, in the Origin client, and on Steam.
