EloCarry Apex Legends - Basic Streamer Guide


Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome to this basic guide on how you can start streaming with EC-Apex! This guide will assume basic knowledge on setting yourself up as a streamer and the differences between Window Captures, Desktop Captures, and Game Captures for streaming software such as OBS.

So let's get started! Here's what you have to do for basic setup:
1) Make sure Overwolf is injected and then do the basic EC-Apex injection.

2) Open the EC menu with F1 and disable iGlows and pGlows (These features are currently NOT streamproof)

3) Activate your Game Capture Source (If you are streaming on Discord this is a matter of ONLY streaming your Apex game and not your desktop)

And you're done with the basics of having all your drawings streamproof and your aim assist working!

There are some extra things to keep in mind for the sake of looking more legit:

  • The lower your Magnet, the more legit you will look.
    • Avoid going above 2 magnet unless you can showcase a decent amount of Master player streamers playing exactly like they have magnet 3+.
    • 0 Magnet is your ultimate, legit-looking friend
  • Lock can be as low as 1 to look super legit or 5 to look pretty good.
  • Don't look through walls unless you "hear" someone coming or you hear the general direction.
    • It's a super common gamesense tactic to have object permanence (remembering that if someone was there a second ago, they SHOULD still be in the vicinity). 
  • You can disable ESP entirely and avoid having to worry about "knowing" where people are by disabling HP bar and Hitbox. Aim assist will still kick in and you can use your normal game sense to effectively have better aim without the extra sense. 
  • As of posting this guide 11/26/2022, NEVER PLAY LOBA.
    • Loba will 100% get you caught from any high elo player/Loba main as her passive is completely disabled due to disabling iGlows. Once people realize that your glows aren't working, you're on a ticking timebomb in terms of getting caught. 
      • You can TRY to explain that your game is bugged, but you'll end up too far in a web of lies you'll have to explain. Just don't stream yourself playing Loba until this bug is fixed.

For those who are planning on streaming to discord or streaming on a platform like Twitch, here are a few tips I can give you:

  • If your Apex is closed while OBS is on, turn off your Apex game captures temporarily until you open up and inject Overwolf + EC.
  • If you're using discord and already have your game loaded and injected, start the discord capture in Lobbies and double check if you can see the F1 menu. 
    • Alternatively (and probably the better option) is to let overwolf inject and turn on your FPS counter on Overwolf (Ctrl + tab). Then capture with discord and if the numbers don't show up on discord then you're free to inject and no menus should pop up on Discord. 

Next time I'll build a more comprehensive guide on looking legit while maintaining the strength of EC and what kind of playstyles you should try to look like a pro without worrying about getting called out.
