Best Settings

Camera Speed

Optimal Camera Speed
Optimal Camera Speed

The default camera speed in-game works best, but you may wish to push the speed up to 4 for faster changing of perspectives, which proves particularly useful when battling against multiple enemies at once.


Mini-Map Zoom Differences
Scarlet Nexus - Mini Map Zoom InZoomed In Scarlet Nexus - Mini Map Zoom OutZoomed Out

You can choose whether or not to zoom in or out on your mini-map, which is displayed on the right-hand side of your screen during gameplay. Having the camera zoomed in will help with seeing specifics of the route you are currently on, while having it zoomed out will show more points of interest for you as you move towards your objective.

The mini-map may also be rotated, allowing to change perspectives as you move the camera.
