ShivFPS Apex Legends Sensitivity & Settings
ShivFPS, or Shivam Patel in real life, has a pretty unassuming stream. He’s quite literally the definition of laid-back. His stream is the kind that is so nice to run for hours in the background when you’re doing chores or working from home.
ShivFPS isn’t just a streamer though. He is also a professional esports player under Luminosity Gaming and SoloQgoats.
Though he hasn’t quite reached that elusive gold yet since he’s still pretty casual about it, it’s pretty obvious that he is well on his way to the top; especially with his talent and all.
In this article, we are going to look at ShivFPS’ Apex Legends sensitivity & settings. It’s fun to look at skilled individuals in any field, especially those that can be at the absolute peak of their game without raging or being mad.
Maybe you can learn a lot of things about Apex Legends that you still don’t realize once you see the sensitivity and settings of ShivFPS.

A notable difference between ShivFPS and his peers is the setting “Texture Streaming Budget”. Despite the name, it is actually more about the texture than streaming. It deals with both quality and resolution, and it ranges from none to insane.
If you want a higher texture streaming budget, you must have a high VRAM. In ShivFPS’ case, it is 8 GB. The general recommendation, however, is 16 GB for insane settings.
On the other hand, it was noted that there was a 6% improvement in performance when players downgraded from insane to none.
As always, when it comes to graphic settings, you have to consider your gear.

Yes, ShivFPS is in fact a mouse and keyboard user.
When it comes to his keyboard settings, there is nothing overly unusual compared to the base settings in the game. For his mouse, his sensitivity is higher than ImperialHal’s which could imply a preference or hardware adaptation.
