How To Remove Muzzle Flash in Apex Legends

Muzzle Flash is the most annoying thing when you're using a weapon that has a fast rate of fire. Here is how to turn it off.

If you like to get your hands on an R-99 or an R-301 like me in Apex Legends, muzzle flash can get in your way when you’re aiming. It obscures your vision and has a huge effect at the early phases of the game where you don’t have a scope attached to your weapon. Sure, it isn’t so bad with certain weapon types like DMRs and Shotguns but still, it can get in the way of your enemies.

Whether it is debatable if this is something illegal, or should it be considered as cheating or not, no one has been banned for using it. So it is safe to use it but the morality that comes with it is up to you to decide.

How to turn it off

Since the only way that you can turn this feature off is via game files, you need to get to where Apex Legends is saved on your computer. It’s usually something like this

  • C:/ProgramFiles/Origin Games/Apex\local\settings.cfg

Once you open the config file via notepad, the default settings will look like

 

r_shadows 0

mat_screen_blur_enabled 0

alias “+shoot” “+attack; r_particle_timescale 1” //muzzle flash

alias “-shoot” “-attack; r_particle_timescale 1” //muzzle flash

bind_US_standard “mouse1” “+shoot” //muzzle flash

mat_compressedtextures 1

cl_ragdoll_collide 0

r_dxgi_max_frame_latency 0

hud_setting_pingAlpha “0.100000”

cl_cull_weapon_fx “0”

cl_ejectbrass “0”

Just erase everything from the notepad and copy and paste the settings below.

r_shadows 0

mat_screen_blur_enabled 0

alias “+shoot” “+attack; r_particle_timescale 300” //muzzle flash

alias “-shoot” “-attack; r_particle_timescale 1” //muzzle flash

bind_US_standard “mouse1” “+shoot” //muzzle flash

mat_compressedtextures 1

cl_ragdoll_collide 0

r_dxgi_max_frame_latency 0

hud_setting_pingAlpha “0.100000”

cl_cull_weapon_fx “0”

cl_ejectbrass “0”

Once you do this, voila! You will no longer see a muzzle flash on your screen when battling with enemies and again, configuring some of the game files like this will not get you banned. There is no need to worry about it. Stay tuned for more guides like this!
