Advanced PUBG Settings
- Render Scale – 100. Really Important, anything above or below 100 can have a huge impact on Performance.
- FPP Camera FOV -The higher the FOV, the fewer frames you get. That is because, in High FOV, you see more Pixels at a time. I personally prefer 90, because its very balanced, and gives me the benefit of extra Frames. Pro players with really good PC’s go for 103 FOV.
- Overall Graphics Quality: Custom.
- Anti-Aliasing – Very Low. In Competitive Games like PUBG, there is no point in having those ultra visuals with smooth edges and blurred display. Instead, keep it low, and you will see very clear and sharp visuals, that can also help you spot enemies & get high frame rates.
- Post-Processing – Very Low.
- Shadows – Very Low. Anything above Very Low will have a huge impact on your PC’s performance.
- Textures – Ultra.
- Effects – Very Low.
- Foliage – Very Low.
- View Distance – Medium (I used to keep it very Low because my monitor sharpness was Max. However, I recently changed Monitor, so that benefit is gone, and now I’ve to rely on the game itself. You can go with Medium or Very Low depending on your Monitor Settings.
- Sharpen – Disable.
- V-Sync – Disabled ( Really Important, when enabled you will experience huge input lag, and frames will be capped to 60).
- Motion Blur – Disabled (Motion Blur in Competitive Games do not make any sense).
