The Division 2 Best Settings For Maximum Performance

These settings I have listed will significantly improve your performance, fasten your PC and Improve FPS in Division 2.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is really great; you get to play plenty of modes, the graphics are fantastic, the map of New York City is very detailed, and the combat system is realistic, but knowing the best settings for it can make the difference in optimization to run it smoothly on your PC!

I’ve benchmarked The Division 2 on a PC with the following specs:

  • OS: Windows 11 Pro 23H2
  • System: Lenovo Legion 7i Laptop
  • CPU: Intel i7-11800H
  • GPU: NVIDIA RTX 3070 8GB
  • RAM: 32GB DDR4
  • Storage: Samsung 1TB SSD Gen 4
Key Takeaways

You’ll at minimum require an AMD FX 6350 or Intel Core i5-2500K CPU, AMD R9 280X or NVIDIA GTX 780 GPU, and 8 GB RAM to run Division 2.

The following graphics settings are the most taxing in the Division 2:

  • Shadow Quality
  • Spot Shadows & Resolution
  • Contact Shadows
  • Volumetric Fog
  • Reflection & Local Reflection Quality
  • Vegetation Quality

Division 2’s optimization was all over the place in the first year. However, with tons of content and performance updates, the game’s optimization is really great now. With my RTX 3070, I’m easily achieving 70-75 FPS on high settings at 1600p resolution. The network errors still occur from time to time, but the major stability issues have been fixed. 

Best Division 2 Settings

The most important step is the optimization of the Division 2 In-Game Graphics. These settings are optimized for all tiers of PC’s.

Windows Optimization Teaks

Besides configuring settings in-game for Divison 2, I recommend trying out some quick Windows optimizations to gain a decent boost in performance. This will not only improve your gameplay but also make your PC snappier. 

Tip: It is highly recommended that you also configure Nvidia Control Panel settings or AMD Radeon settings to improve gaming performance across the board.

Wrapping Up Division 2 Performance Guide

After using all the best settings mentioned above, my system was able to give me an 80-85 average FPS in Division 2. The game was much more stable without the stuttering issues that threw off my aim. This is an idea if you do a lot of PvP in the Dark Zone or Raids. 

As of right now, the game’s optimization is also miles better than it was on launch so you shouldn’t worry much about crashes. However, you might face a few problems once a major patch drops like sudden crashes or Mike-01 errors. Waiting usually works in these cases and the issue will resolve itself. 

Other than that, I hope your in-game performance improved after checking out my suggested settings above. If you’re still having issues, don’t hesitate to discuss them in the comments below.
