Step-By-Step guide to improve FPS

  1. Make sure that the Display Mode is set to Fullscreen
  2. Refresh Rate should be set according to the highest native refresh rate of the player’s monitor. For example, if the player has a 144Hz monitor, they should set the refresh rate to 144Hz.
  3. You need to disable the Gameplay V-Sync and the Menu V-Sync
  4. Moving on to the Render Resolution, you should set it at 100 when starting. However, if performance issues persist, then this is the setting that you would need to lower.
  5. Setting Aspect Ratio to Automatic and Field of View to 100 is optimal to avoid FPS drops in the game.
  6. After setting Framerate Limit to Custom, you need to set the Gameplay Custom Framerate Limit to their monitor’s maximum refresh rate.
  7. For the Texture QualityModel QualitySpecial Effects QualityScreen Space Reflection, and Object View Distance players should check the capabilities of their GPU and set the values accordingly. However, setting all of the above to Low will ensure a better gameplay performance with minimum lag.

These settings will definitely help you getting a bit more FPS and also reduce lag that you was facing earlier.
