Since his retirement from competitive CS:GO in 2018, shroud has developed a keen interest for the battle royale genre. With his strong background in tactical shooters, Apex Legends was just another target in the former pro’s scope.

Shroud’s transition from a professional player to a full-time streamer also increased his viewer base. Thousands of people tune into his stream on Mixer every day to watch him dominate whatever server he joins.

While shroud spices things up by playing different battle royales, like Escape From Tarkov, Call of Duty: Warzone, or anything new that comes out, he still enjoys a bit of Apex.

If you’re looking to dethrone shroud while he’s away playing other games, then breaking down his settings can certainly push you forward. But remember, most of these settings are personal preference and you can only make them better with your own adjustments.

Here are shroud’s Apex settings.

Shroud’s mouse settings

Shroud’s mouse settings are straightforward with two important details. He turns off the mouse acceleration setting since it’s known to have no positive impact on a player’s aim. The setting messes up with your sensitivity the more you move your mouse.

Setting his polling rate to 1000 Hz also ensures the least amount of latency and is the go-to choice of many pro players, like ImperialHal.

  • Mouse Sensitivity: 2.9
  • ADS Multiplier: 1.0
  • Polling Rate: 1000 Hz
  • Mouse Acceleration: Off
