Found yourself suffering from a bit of the server blues while trying to play Apex Legends? Then best set yourself up for a server reset and join a new datacentre to get your connection back up and running for optimal performance.
Your server status is obviously dependent on your location and connection quality, but lag can often be the cause of frustration when occurring at the most inconvenient of times.
Thankfully, you can manually scan available datacentres across PS4, Xbox one and PC, and connect to an alternative one based on optimal ping and packet loss, hopefully improving your performance in the long run. Here’s how to do it, thanks to SuperWeeble on Reddit.
Apex Legends server lag: How to fix it
PS4 and Xbox
Change Your Sever Datacentre
- On the title screen, wait for 2-3 minutes
- Enter the accessibility settings (Option button)
- Exit, and then press R3. From here, you should see a list of datacentres, including packet loss (if any) and ping.
- Essentially the same process for changing your datacentre on PC. For 1-2 minutes, hit Escape, and then cancel out. You'll find the datacentres listed at the bottom of the screen
