As the error message indicates, Apex Legends DirectX error 4294967287 is mainly related to DirectX, which is a set of components in Windows that allows software (mainly and especially games) to be used directly with video and audio hardware.
So DirectX is very important for games and many games even have requirements on DirectX versions. As to Apex Legends, it requires DirectX 11.0 or higher versions. If your PC doesn't meet this requirement, you will get the following error.
In general, if your computer is Windows 7 or later, the DirectX version is 11.0 or higher. But you can also check the DirectX version first. Here is the guide:
