Best PUBG FPS Settings

FPS stands for ‘frames per second’. The higher this number, the better the game-play experience. To achieve optimal FPS, professional PUBG players optimize both their gaming device (especially PC) and their in-game PUBG settings to achieve the highest FPS possible.

Best PUBG Graphics Settings

As a general rule of thumb, you should aim for an FPS of 60 if you want to achieve the best game performance and smooth frames. If your device has some system limitations, aim for an FPS that’s not lower than 30. This should still be playable.

The benefits of high FPS are: faster processing of graphics, smoother movements, minimal to no lagging, and better video and graphic details.

Here are some of the best PUBG FPS Settings to tweak:

  • Mouse Sensitivity Settings. Your mouse can greatly impact the frames per second, because it is the single most actively used device when playing the game. This is why you need to optimize your mouse settings such as system acceleration, DPI (dots per inch), vertical sensitivity, and general sensitivity for varying game views. We wrote a complete guide about this topic and you can read it separately here: PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Pro Sensitivity Settings
  • Display Resolution. You need to set this up on your computer and in-game. For most gaming computers, a resolution of 1920 X 1080 is best. If you are projecting the game on a bigger extension screen, you can experiment with different screen solutions until you find the best setting that fits your screen setup.
  • Screen Brightness. A level of 50-70 is best if you want to be able to see the more intricate details of the game. If your screen has very low brightness, it’s difficult to differentiate between the color of the terrain and your enemies moving in stealth.
  • Anti-aliasing. This setting is designed to make your graphics more realistic by smoothing out jagged edges on the screen. While this is a good technique to make your graphics look more real, it can really lower your overall FPS. You can set this to “Very Low”.
  • Window mode and screen scale. Set the window mode to “Full Screen” and screen scale to 100. This ensures that the game utilizes every inch of your screen. It is similar to a ‘zoom’ feature. For example, if you’re watching low resolution graphics on a high resolution screen, you might end up with a blurry screen. Proper window mode and screen scale settings will prevent this from happening.

NVIDIA PUBG optimization

If you’re using NVIDIA for your graphics, you can also tweak settings there to help boost your FPS. While the best NVIDIA settings can vary depending on the capacity of your gaming rig and your NVIDIA version, you can use the below as a guide only.

Here are the steps:

  1. Right click your desktop home screen and click on NVIDIA Control Panel
  2. Under 3D settings, click on Manage 3D settings
  3. Under Program Settings Tab, you will be asked to ‘Select a Program to Customize’ (Step #1)
  4. Add PUBG from the Select A Program list
  5. Now, as soon as you add the game, you will need to go to Step #2, which is to specify the settings for the program. This is where you’ll be able to tweak various settings that will improve your FPS stat.

FPS Boost Wisely

It is easy to get obsessed with trying to achieve high FPS, but you have to get smart about it. There are other practical stuff you can try to improve your frames per second without getting too technical:

  1. Delete unused files and programs on your computer. If your hard drive has lots of unused programs such as games you no longer play, video files, and other applications, this can affect the performance of your computer. Delete unneeded stuff from your hard drive to improve your in-game graphics performance.
  2. Close other running applications when playing PUBG. If you have other programs like MS Office, Torrent, movie streaming, and active downloads running in the background, it would compete with PUBG’s FPS and downgrade the performance. Close those programs so your computer can focus on PUBG while you’re playing.
  3. Adjust the power option on your computer. By default, our Windows PCs are set to Balanced and Power Saver options. However, this limits our game capacity. You need it to switch it by going to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Power Options, then under additional plans, choose the “High Performance” radio button. Restart your computer after this to ensure the settings apply.
  4. Upgrade your device specs. In some cases, even though you tweak all the FPS settings in PUBG, Steam, and in your gaming rig, the FPS just won’t improve. This calls for an upgrade of your computer by getting more specs, possibly using a higher processor and choosing a better graphics card edition than the one you’re currently using.
