Configuration to play Apex Legends with JoyShockMapper

# Configuration for Apex Legends with flick stick. Controls are basically the same as the controller. Makes more sense
#
# (Any line that starts with # is ignored by JoyShockMapper)
# First, reset to defaults so we don't have to set values we don't care about
RESET_MAPPINGS

# Calibrate. Flick stick relies on good calibration; gyro and stick sens make more sens with it, too
REAL_WORLD_CALIBRATION = 45.454
IN_GAME_SENS = 1.8
# Please set IN_GAME_SENS to your in game mouse speed setting whenever you change it

Tyro Johnson's Notes

These controls are the closest to the normal Apex Legends controller layout. Some changes are chorded inputs to select the different health items which allows even quicker health item selection. Aim down sights and shooting buttons are on bumpers because its just easier to keep hand steady pressing bumpers instead of triggers. Apex Legends can pick up controller inputs, so it might be best to hide the controller inputs from the game with a program like Hid Guardian which is what I use. This config can be used to crouch spam and also has a sprint button.

How to Use this Config

Using JoyShockMapper configurations is easy once you know how. If you haven't used it before, check out the guide. For using a community config like this one, you only need to get through the first two sections — Installing JSM and Using an already-made configuration file.

Just copy the above configuration into a text file, change the IN_GAME_SENS to match your in-game settings, and then drag that file into JoyShockMapper and hit Enter to use it right away. Some games have their own limitations with certain controllers or require some extra setup, so make sure to check for any notes near top of the main Apex Legends page.
