How to Use a Controller on Apex Legends Mobile


Playing FPS games on a mobile device with a controller isn't exactly black magic. Manufacturers have been scrambling to provide mobile players the greatest gaming controllers for their phones since since PUBG mobile and similar FPS titles were released for Android and iOS a few years ago.

While touch screen technology has advanced greatly in recent years, in terms of comfort, responsiveness, and tactile feedback, on-screen controls still fall short of a gaming controller. This article will show you how to play Apex Legends Mobile with your console controllers.
