You have been gaming for as long as you can remember. You’ve mastered building in Fortnite, slide cancel, and bunny hop on Call of Duty like its second nature. So at this point what else can you do to improve your gaming experience? It’s time to think outside the game. There are many tools and apps you can download and utilize to almost instantly elevate your gaming experience.
We’ve gone ahead and ranked our top five favorite apps and tools you should check out before your next gaming session. Let’s check them out!
Discord is a voice and messaging app that allows you to talk with your squad without using in-game audio channels. This allows for better audio when giving your team callouts, more people in party chats, and the opportunity to meet and make new friends to game with. Discord is free and easy to use. You’ll never use in-game chat again.
Everyone knows you can use a VPN to browse the web. But what many don’t realize is that it can be utilized in gaming as well, like the app by ExpressVPN. Ever wonder how your favorite twitch streamer is getting such bot lobbies? Chances are they are using a VPN to get into lobbies without geo-restrictions. That means they could hop into a Malaysian server where there is a lower player count overall with fewer high level players. It’s not cheating and it’s not hacking, so don’t worry about getting banned. Just get ready for some burger lobbies.
One of the most important and underappreciated aspects of gaming is your FPS. The more FPS (frames per second) you have, the more you see of the game at any given moment. This might not be a huge deal in games, like Fall Guys or The Last of Us, but in competitive online gaming like Valorant, Call of Duty or Fortnite, where quick close quarter fights happen at the drop of a hat – each frame counts. Razor Cortex instantly increases your FPS by shutting down programs on your PC that aren’t being utilized and would otherwise pull from your FPS. It’s a must-have for any series gamer.
Whether you are on mouse and keyboard or controller, aiming is the most important skill to master. And even when you think you’ve got your aim down, there is always room for improvement. An aim trainer is a great way to warm up before you start your gaming session and an even better way to improve your aim overall.
Gaming doesn’t always have to be competitive. Some of the best games out there are relatively laid-back. Spotify is a great companion app to have at your disposal when you are just trying to kick back and have a nice night of leisurely gaming. You can put on your favorite playlist and play your favorite game.
There is no right or wrong way to game as long as you are having fun. But there’s always a tool or app that could help improve your gaming experience. Whether it’s to get the most out of your game or just to chill and relax, any of the five apps we mentioned above will immediately make a difference you will notice. But don’t just take it from us. Check these out for yourself and let us know what you think.
