Some players are looking to turn off crossplay in Apex Legends on their Nintendo Switch consoles.

Apex Legends players aren't thrilled with how the game performs on the Nintendo Switch--and with good reason. According to them, the game is currently suffering from poor resolution and frame rate issues, making it difficult to play competitively. This has left them at a notable disadvantage against their opponents on other platforms.

In an effort to level the playing field, some have resorted to turning the crossplay feature off so they'll exclusively be matched with those facing the same challenges.

How to Turn Off Crossplay in Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch

Fortunately, the process is exceedingly simple. We've broken it down into steps below:

  1. Open Apex Legends.
  2. Navigate to the Apex Legends lobby.
  3. Select the gear icon at the bottom left corner to bring up the game's settings.
  4. Scroll down to find the Cross-Platform Play feature.
  5. Disable the feature.

The change should take effect immediately. However, if player still find themselves being paired with those on other platforms, we recommend restarting the game.

When done correctly, Nintendo Switch players should find themselves removed from the crossplay pool and no longer see corresponding matches.
