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 began his professional eSports 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 2022 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 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 settings HisWattson has.

Per Optic ADS Sensitivity On
1x Optic/ Iron Sights0.9
2x Optic1.1
3x Optic1.2
4x Optic1.3
6x Optic1.0
8x Optic1.0
10x Optic1.0


Like other pro players, HisWattson also uses specific gear that lets him play at his best. Apex Legends is a very competitive game. So, having these gears will definitely give you an edge over others. Here is a list of all the gears that he uses:
