It appears that Respawn Entertainment has decided to make a quality of life change to how mouse sensitivity will work while aiming down sights in Apex Legends.
Currently, there is only one sensitivity option for aiming down sights in Apex Legends. This slider effectively acts as a multiplier for your default sensitivity, so an ADS sensitivity of one would mean that you would have a one to one ratio between your default, non-ADS sensitivity and your ADS sensitivity.
Apex Legends Sniping Changes Outlined for Future Patch
A recent Reddit post on the Apex Legends subreddit shows that the option to add separate ADS sensitivity sliders will be coming in a future update. Currently, there are seven different optical zoom levels in the game. These levels are 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 6x, 8x and 10x.
This has been a highly requested quality of life change since the launch of the game, and it is also a feature that some other battle royale games have such as PLAYERUNKOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS.
There has not been any word yet on when this feature will arrive, but we can hopefully expect it to come alongside the Iron Crown Collection Event, which is coming Aug. 13.
