Apex Legends Launch Options (11/2020)

A list of Launch options for Season 7 of Apex Legends

 

Introduction
A List of all (known) launch options and whether they work / are supported in the current version of Apex Legends (Season 7 – v3.02.267)

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.

Working
-full / -fullscreen – will launch the game in fullscreen mode regardless of settings

-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.

Not Supported / Do Nothing
-novid – Is supposed to disable the game loading intro, does nothing instead.

-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.

Not confirmed to work
-forcenovsync – This option should be managed by the game settings.

-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.

Meme tier
Why would you use this?

-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!
