In this article, we’ll drive you through HisWattson’s new and updated Apex Legends settings that you need to know. So you can tweak your settings accordingly and get even better at the game.
Born in 2001, Jacob “HisWattson” McMillin is a North American professional Apex Legends player currently signed for FURIA. Unlike most players, who had previous experience in other big FPS titles, HisWattson started his career with Apex Legends.
He started playing Apex Legends from Season 4 and hit Predator in the next split. He made his first competitive Apex debut in May 2022, ALGS Online #6 – North America. Though he had a very rough starting point, his popularity started to skyrocket in 2022.
He hit #1 Predator in Season 13 Split 2 and gained huge followings down the line. People were skeptical about his potential in the actual competitive scene, outside of his comfort zone. However, he proved everyone wrong with his incredible Seer gameplay in the highest level of the competitive scene, ALGS.
With HisWattson, FURIA got 2nd place in the ALGS finals. Despite having the highest points on the ALGS finals scoreboard, they failed to get the matchpoint after coming very close to it. In any case, FURIA and HisWattson dominated the ALGS finals with surprising performances, and HisWattson even received the MVP title of the tournament.
HisWattson’s New Apex Legends Settings
To make incredible plays, HisWattson uses specific Apex Legends settings. These settings definitely do not make him one of the best players in the world, but they surely help him stay consistent. Each game’s video setting, keybind, and mouse setting are adjusted to complement his playstyle.
Also, keep in mind that pro players like HisWattson often change their Apex Legends settings. However, the changes are always minimal and remain in a specific range. So, it is always suggested to follow pro players’ Apex Legends settings but not mimic them strictly, as they might not fit your play style.
So, without further ado, let’s find out what Apex Legends settings HisWattson uses so you can tweak yours and take your Apex Legends’ mastery to the next level. You should go through each setting and find out what suits you best and use it just as it is or modify it to your liking.

HisWattson uses a relatively low mouse sensitivity compared to other pros. He also uses custom ADS control for each optic sight. This makes sense because it helps him aim better. He often likes to change his mouse sensitivity and DPI.
However, he does not change his mouse sensitivity drastically, so it usually stays in a small range. Here is the list of current Apex Legends mouse sensitivity setting HisWattson has.
