PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, or PUBG, is a popular battle royal game for PC gamers. Gameplay is more or less a “last man standing” model in which a large number of players are released simultaneously, find weapons, and kill before being killed. As with most PC games, there are a lot of optimization options that help enhance gameplay. If you find that your device is having a hard time keeping up with PUBG, these FPS tips are for you. A lot of the changes and alterations are time-consuming, but well-worth the final product.
FPS stands for “frames per second” and is a very important technical consideration for game makers. The FPS range that is generally acceptable for video games is anywhere from 30 to 60 FPS, compared to films that run at about 24 FPS. 100+, of course, is a very optimal level for professional level gameplay. We hope that utilizing the following tips to increase your FPS will help your overall experience playing PUBG. Note that everyone’s device is different, so some may work while others don’t.
- Adjust your power settings to “High Performance” under the computer’s regular settings.
- Optimize your graphics card settings (if you have one).
- Change your Steam Launch options to increase your FPS. First, open your Steam Library, navigate down to the game and right-click it. Select properties, then locate Steam Launch Options. In the field, copy and paste the following:
-malloc=system +mat_antialias 0 window -USEALLAVAILABLECORES -sm4
Once that’s done, go to the game settings. Open your file explorer and search %appdata%. Once there, navigate to Local\TslGame\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor. There you’ll find several .ini files that you’ll need to edit.
- Visual Adjustments: don’t overlook actual gameplay settings as it pertains to visual effects. This also can have a significant effect on FPS.
At the top right of your screen in the main menu, navigate to the gear icon. You should immediately see the graphics menu to change your settings. From here you can change your resolution, brightness, and other visual quality assets.
What you’ll want to turn down
Turn this down to a minimum, or at least Low.
It should be set to at least 90 on Low End PCs.
This just adds a little bit more graphics to buildings and the plants. Set it to Very Low.
Turn shadows down as much as possible. However, you could leave this on Medium or Low if you feel like you’ll run into campers.
This part doesn’t matter on Low End PCs, set it to Low just in case it does help you out when having an 8x scope.
Leave it at Medium for lower end PC’s; it’ll still run fine.
Change it to Low if your GPU can’t handle the game well. That’s as far as you need to drop the effects quality though.
Just go to a minimum no matter what your PC is. This isn’t so much for a PC boost as it is for a tactical advantage. Less foliage means less chances of other players blending in.
Absolutely turn this off unless you prefer the feel that motion blur offers a better gaming experience for your taste.
Turn this off unless you have a good computer but if you have a good one, why are you here?
