Dalton “Daltoosh” Hester is one of the game’s top streamers under TSM. His stream is a fun watch all around. He’s also really chatty, which can quickly turn educational insights into just complete hilarious chaos.
However, what makes Daltoosh’s Apex Legends stream arguably more unique than his equally popular counterparts is the fact that he exclusively uses a controller. In fact, he has often been dubbed as one of the best if not the best Apex Legends controller players in the game.
NICKMERCS is one of the few top Apex Legends streamers who also use a controller.
In this article, we will not only be exploring Daltoosh Apex Legends sensitivity & settings, but we will also be looking at why Daltoosh prefers using a controller.
|Settings Name||Daltoosh Controller Settings|
|Interact/Reload Button||Tap to Use and Reload|
|Survival Slot Button||Off|
|Look Sensitivity||High (4)|
|Look Sensitivity (ADS)||High (4)|
Even on the PC and the mobile versions, Apex Legends has controller support.
Honestly speaking, using a mouse and keyboard is almost always objectively better.
Not to say that the controller doesn’t have its merits, because it does! For one, if you’re used to playing on a console, a controller is a no-brainer. Controllers are also great for short to midrange fights. Lastly, and one of the more controversial features of a controller is the built-in aim assist.
For some, controller can be a great advantage. For others, especially veteran players, it can be a big hindrance.

Unlike most streamer and pro settings, Daltoosh likes to max out his video settings.
Again, we like to reiterate that you should only apply these settings if you have the hardware that can bear the load. Otherwise, Apex Legends will keep crashing for you.
PC & Peripherals
Speaking of hardware, Daltoosh can comfortably play in high settings simply because his PC is powerful enough to do so. Daltoosh has an Intel Core i9-9900K as his processor. He also has an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080. All of these are paired with 32 GB RAM.
While these aren’t exactly the best of the best, they’re more than good enough to play Apex Legends at the highest setting.
For his controller, Daltoosh has a SCUF Gaming Impact – a popular choice among streamers.
