Display FPS in Apex Legends PC

Apex Legends is the latest battle royale game to hit the market, created by Respawn the team that previously created Titan Fall. When playing a battle royale a lot of players like to know what FPS their game is running at. Lower FPS will result in a choppy “non-smooth” game play. Where as higher FPS gives you a smooth, overall better experience. Most PC players will have either a 60hz, 75hz, 144hz, or 240hz monitor. To get the most out of your monitor you will want to enable your FPS counter to make sure your PC is keeping up.
