Our favorite "In-House Mouse" is the Logitech G502 and is what we use as a baseline for all MK Game Profiles. If you prefer to use a different DPI you will need to adjust the TUNING > SENSITIVITY in M&K Settings to compensate. A lower DPI will require a raised sensitivity while a higher dpi would benefit from a lower sensitivity.
When following this guide, we recommend setting the DPI of your mouse to 4000 (you can tune to a higher DPI once you've got this profile setup).
If playing on console it is recommended to set the Polling Rate to 250 and 1000 if playing on PC. If you prefer to use a different DPI, you will need to adjust the sensitivity in MK Settings to compensate for a different mouse DPI. A lower DPI will require a raised sensitivity while a high dpi would benefit from a lower sensitivity.

Mouse: Logitech G502 DPI: 4,000 Polling: 250Hz (Xbox/PlayStation) or 1000Hz (Windows PC)
To get the best experience playing Apex Legends we recommend using a Linear Response Curve using a sensitivity of 7 if you wish to take advantage of in-game Aim Assist. If you do not wish to use in-game Aim Assist then select a sensitivity of 8.
Once you have selected your sensitivity, simply match the following settings:
- Look Deadzone - Small
- Response Curve - Linear
- Look Sensitivity - 7 (Aim Assist) or 8 (No Aim Assist)
- Look Sensitivity [ADS] - 7 (Aim Assist) or 8 (No Aim Assist)
When using a sensitivity of 7 or lower you will have in-game Aim Assist enabled. This will naturally slow down your aim when near and on top of an enemy. If you wish to strengthen this you may lower the ballistic curve on lower movement points 0, 5, 10, and 15.
Next, you will need to open up Zen Studio and click the M&K Settings which is located at the top right of Zen Studio all the way to the right. The first thing to do once in M&K Settings is to assign the button mapping settings. This is a matter of personal preference though you will want to ensure that each button for the controller has at least one keyboard key or mouse key assigned to it. Each profile does have the ability for secondary binds along with 4 optional auxiliary profiles should you want custom settings for a specific scenario.
Binds for mouse and keyboard can be done with the mouse and keyboard connected to your PC, Zen, and even a laptop keyboard.
It is important to note though that should you want to cancel or clear a bind, you will need to use a second keyboard connected to your PC (you can use the MK Switch if you only have one keyboard). Of you are using a laptop you can use that keyboard.
Using the keyboard connected to Cronus Zen will not cancel or clear a bind.
To set a bind, double-click the button you want to bind then press the key or mouse button you wish to use as the bind. Should you make a mistake and want to cancel set a bind press and hold the Escape key on your keyboard. A bind can also be cleared by holding the Backspace key on your keyboard.
You should now import the Apex Legends Game Profile. Thanks to LegitCloudzzz for providing these great settings.
The following values will be applied in M&K Settings:
- Tuning - Sensitivity 50.00
- Tuning - X/Y Ratio 1.00
- Tuning - Boost 0.00
- Tuning - Smoothness 0
- Translator - Deadzone Compensation X 10.60 (Xbox) or 9.80 (PlayStation)
- Translator - Deadzone Compensation Y 10.60 (Xbox) or 9.80 (PlayStation)
- Translator - Deadzone Shape Ellipse
- Translator - Analog Stickize 142.00
The ballistic curve can be left as is. Should you want a more customized feel though we recommend going into the Firing Range to adjust the curve and test out movement.
Below is a curve that many of our testers enjoyed. This allows for quick and smooth movement while also giving a nice boost to the in-game Aim Assist. The Tuning and Translator settings above can also be set by copying the appropriate code and then click paste in Zen Studio.
The above process will need to be done at least once for both the HIP and ADS profile. Auxiliary profiles are optional.
Once you have finished and got everything where you like it to be save the settings to your Zen by clicking the glowing checkmark in a circle on the left of the screen and you are all set!
