How do ChocoTaco Settings Support His Playing Style?

ChocoTaco learnt to be strategic while growing up playing games like Super Smash Bros. He has incorporated this style and a calm demeanor into his game, so settings must support this game style. Jacob has played several games, including PUBG as a professional player, but it’s his time playing Apex Legends we’ll consider.

To support his strategic mindset, he uses specific adjustments that enable his style. Top of this is his mouse settings. He uses the standard 800 DPI with a high sensitivity of 1.4. This combination makes the mouse movement extremely fast.

He can quickly make a move and have the cursor cover a lot of ground. It is important for players with quick thinking strategies to have a fast mouse that matches their thinking. The ADS sensitivity of aim is set at 1, which is the default most players use. This figure makes it easy for Jacob Throop to view both long and short range weapons.

These figures bring about the eDPI of 1120 with Hz at the standard 1000. The mouse is extremely fast already, so his acceleration is turned off.

Jacob Throop uses a full screen view. He wants to see more and anticipate opponents moves. Its screen resolution is 1920×1080, which gives display clarity. Hence, it’s easier to see all the movements on the screen, including where opponents are at each point. This brings us to the FOV of 104, which is wide so objects are shown on the screen at a time. Being a strategic player involves being able to take in more information than others.

Screen brightness is often overlooked when setting up the quality of viewing, but Jacob takes this seriously. He keeps it consistently at 50% so it is not too bright or dull. By disabling the FOV ability scaling, he is able to achieve more FOV, but this can affect accuracy. ChcocoTaco is known for his calmness and strategic attacks so he can sacrifice a little accuracy for more game understanding in the form of FOV.

As a player who is always on the lookout for advantages, he cannot miss out on the pros of enabling NVIDIA reflex. He uses the Enabled + Boost option to get the GPU to improve the system’s speed of reaction so his strategic moves can catch his opponents unprepared.

Typically, his video quality settings have a preference for performance, clarity, and anything that improves his game understanding. He wants to know more than the typical player so he can make calculated moves. However, to ensure the smooth running of his setup, he has disabled or set to low most of the other features like ragdolls, impact marks, and model details.

The standard keybinds for Apex Legends are different from other Esports games, and rightly so. ChocoTaco utilizes a blend of regular keybinds with customized options. He sets designated keys for each action and ensures the actions he typically does with others have keybinds close to each other.

Generally, his settings continue to elaborate on his strategic gameplay and calm demeanor, where he can take a few seconds to think of the best move. He wants to be in control, so he takes in more information than most players.
