client and server performance still needs to be optimized by the developers and needs some time. I myself played some games at a high competitive level and I want to share some tweaks and settings you should do. Generally speaking “more fps = better” especially if you play with a 144/120hz monitor, “less distraction = better” and a clear image is also important if your PC can handle it. Most high ranked players in any shooter game will agree. I have looked through most FPS guides in PUBG and i have gathered the best data & details each has shown. Therefore, some of these ideas won’t be just my own but others as well.
- Check the power settings on your computer so they are set to “high performance” instead of the defaulted “balanced”
- Change your graphic card driver settings to be more performance-oriented (just google NVIDIA or AMD driver settings)
- Go to ingame settings/graphics
- Turn up “Brightness” to your preference to see enough in dark corners etc.
- Change “Anti-Aliasing” to “Very Low” (Note: This game uses “FXAA” or something similar. It doesn’t really cost much performance to use however everything gets blurry and might even cause headache! If you want a clearer image there are other options. However some people don’t like to play with flickering edges. In this case try to play on “High” or “Ultra”)
- Change “Shadow Quality” to “Very Low” (Note: use “Low” if you can’t handle the blocky shadows indoors)
- Change “Post-Processing Quality” to “Very Low” (Note: Removes saturation/bloom, increases visibility)
- Change “Texture Quality” to anything (Note: Depends on your graphics card VRAM and personal preference. Some pro’s say its harder to see an enemy in high quality textures. Check your fps while changing this setting. Some people might experience higher fps with higher textures right now due to cpu overload. This settings increases quality a lot while not losing much visiblity)
- Change “Effects Quality” to “Very Low” (Note: If you still want a better looking game without sacrificing visiblity a lot then this is one of the settings to change)
- Change “Foliage” to “Very Low”
- Disable “Motion Blur”
- Reduce your Screen Scale (Note: Depends heavily on your graphics card. Strong cards won’t get a high average ingame-fps increase here and should stay at 100 @native resolution to maintain good pixel quality)
- If you can’t handle a bad looking game but want to maintain good visibility just increase Texture a lot, Effects a bit and Shadows to “Low”
Here is an FPS Guide made by Panjno (NOTE: This guide is NVIDIA Based.)
Few notes before watching the video:
- DO NOT download Driver booster, download drivers manually by going to vendors site, you cant count on third party software to do that properly.
- DO NOT Change any of the game config files as the Developers of the game made it so you can’t launch the game if you do so. (If you messed with your in game config files then just simply “Verify integrity of game cache” under steam properties or re-install the game.)
Everything else mentioned in the video works well and does help give a nice boost in FPS, i say this because I (Yousif) have tried it before when i used to play on a budget PC and it helped boost my frames and fixed my lag spike issues.
