A list of Launch options for Season 7 of Apex Legends
Keep in mind to disable any launch options that you suspect might cause an issue, a crash or performance problems and not to copy paste recommended launch options you find on a website. In many cases they do not fit your system specifically.
-window / -windowed – will launch the game in windowed mode regardless of settings
+cl_showfps 4 – show FPS in-game (obsolete)
+cl_showpos 1 – show Name, Position, Angle and Velocity in-game
+fps_max (Number) – Limit FPS to given number, set to “1” to set the fps to the monitor’s refresh rate and set to “0” for unlimited
-high – Sets the game thread priority to high. Could lead to a performance increase but also system instability. use with caution
-dev – disables the intro animation but has been known to cause issues and crashes in the past, disable this if you encounter problems.
-threads (number) – Determines the number of threads (not cores) to allocate for the thread pool – Does nothing and is left for the game engine to decide.
-freq / -refresh (number) – This option is managed by the refresh rate selected in windows.
-console – The developer console is disabled in public builds of Apex and can’t be accessed.
-dxlevel – Determines the DirectX API version used for rendering. Seems to do nothing.
-preload / -cl_forcepreload – Enables preloading of textures at game start, appears to do nothing, as preloading is handled by the game.
-w/-width (number) – Sets the desired width of the resolution. Crashes on startup if an unsupported resolution is entered unless playing in windowed mode.
-h/-height (number) – Sets the desired height of the resolution. Crashes on startup if an unsupported resolution is entered unless playing in windowed mode.
-nosound – Does as it says by disabling all sound. I don’t know why you would do this but it does work
-nomouse – Disables mouse support but only during gameplay, navigating the game still works
-noip – Use this if you want to not play the game, disables the game binding to an IP and disables multiplayer support
-noborder – Disables the game border around the window in windowed mode. Just use borderless windowed instead of this
-low – Sets the game priority to low and causes performance issues and system instability very fun!
