Best Escape From Tarkov Settings [Tried & Tested]

In this guide, we'll go through Best Escape From Tarkov Settings that will feature High FPS and Stable Performance In Escape From Tarkov.

The player base for Escape From Tarkov is still at peak levels. So, we’ve updated our Escape From Tarkov Best Settings guide for the latest patch, and beyond that, I’ll include general and graphics settings you must use. 

I’ve tested Escape from Tarkov on the following PC specifications:

  • CPU: Core-i5 12400f
  • GPU: RTX 4070
  • RAM: 16GB DDR4
  • Storage: 2.5TB SSD
  • Operating System: Windows 10
Key Takeaways

To run Tarkov, you should have at least an Intel i3 or AMD Athlon CPU, a DX9 compatible GPU with 1 GB VRAM, and 8 GB RAM.

The following settings can impact your FPS the most in EFT: 

  • Shadows Quality & Visibility
  • Resampling
  • Screen Space Reflections (SSR)
  • Grass Shadows
  • Object Level of Detail

Escape from Tarkov optimization is okay at best. I’ve experienced a lot of stuttering and freezing in-game, with even abrupt crashing while I was queuing for a session. As far as performance is concerned, I get over 100 FPS on 1440p resolution, max settings, and DLSS set to quality. While the game has issues with stability, it nails the performance part. Our EFT reviewer Daniyal also had a similar experience with the game.

Wrapping Up Tarkov Optimization Guide

Running Escape From Tarkov has been troublesome for me in the beginning, despite having good hardware. The problem was the game’s optimization and tons of bugs that ruined the experience. 

Even though the game is still in a closed beta state, the optimization has gotten way better. From playing on a measly 60-65 FPS, it has now been bumped up to 100+ FPS. They’ve resolved several texture-steaming issues and game-breaking glitches over time that have helped me enjoy the game a little better. 

So, hopefully, my settings guide was able to give you even more performance out of the game than you currently were getting. The game is only going to get better with time so you can always bump up a few settings to get better visuals in Tarkov. 

Now that your PC is ready to take on Tarkov at high FPS, learn how to get better at Tarkov in our Keys to SuccessEscape from Tarkov Best Guide.
