To disable HUD in Star Wars: Squadrons, you’ll want to open the game’s menu (If you’re mid-game that’ll be Start on Xbox One, Options on PS4, and Esc on PC), go to the Options and select Gameplay. In the Gameplay menu, the top section will be labelled Pilot Experience. By default this will be on Standard and have the HUD switched on, but you can shift it over to Instruments Only if you want to remove the HUD elements which appear in your vision.

Star Wars: Squadrons actually displays all the information you need within your cockpit, meaning you can keep track of everything like shield position and weapon strength without the HUD switched on. You’ll want to have the overlay on at the start to learn where everything is, but once you’ve mastered the controls, you can switch the HUD off to truly get lost in the stars. There’s also a Custom option for HUD which allows you to pick and choose which elements are displayed, tailoring the visuals to your desired level.
