By Malakai*

A brief information that will help you setting the sport for the primary time, or for gamers trying to get essentially the most out of the sport. We are going to check out a few of the settings from Gameplay, HUD and Graphics to optimize your expertise.

Thoughts you, that is principally aimed toward folks with first rate {hardware} and searching for excessive FPS expertise with out fully sacrificing visible constancy, therefore, being an optimized information, and never simply turning every thing off and/or to low settings.


First, take into account that we will likely be configuring the sport for optimized, good wanting settings.

As traditional, please at all times keep in mind to examine that your PC is in good circumstances, not overheating, has up to date graphics and CPU drivers, has enabled XMP in BIOS, and so on. There are different guides for such issues so I will not be going into that.

Now, let’s go into the sport

Graphics Settings

Get into the primary menu, choices, and Video. I will be exhibiting you what settings it is best to decrease or preserve and explaining you a bit what every one among them does.

Primary Settings

  • Fullscreen Mode : Want Fullscreen or Borderless.
    Normally Fullscreen offers you one of the best efficiency nevertheless it’s truthfully negligible these days so each work.
  • Fullscreen System : Solely related you probably have multiple monitor, select the monitor you need the sport to be displayed in.
  • Fullscreen Decision : Select the native decision of your monitor (Max decision attainable)
    Except you might be actually struggling for efficiency. Additionally, make sure you examine that the refresh fee is about to the fitting quantity. Which means, that you probably have a 144hz display, it ought to learn as 143.98 hz or comparable within the description, that may rely in your {hardware}.
    On this case, since my monitor is a 1080p , 144hz one. I will likely be utilizing 1920×1080 , 143.98hz.
  • Brightness : 55-60
    Controls the publicity of the sport and the way darkish areas are gonna seem like. I like to recommend growing it to 55-60% to offer you higher visibility in darkish areas with out making the sport too washed out.
  • Area of View : 90-100 ought to work for most individuals.
    One of the crucial necessary settings to examine. It adjustments the quantity of issues you’ll be able to see round you, by “zooming” in or out your perspective.
    I like to recommend setting it at 90 for a great stability of visibility with out making it look too excessive.
    However, for those who wanna go larger, that is additionally high quality so long as you’ll be able to purpose properly. Needless to say maxing it out would possibly make issues look too distant, and in addition distort so much the sides of your display.
  • Automobile 3P Area of View : 90
    Does the identical factor because the earlier setting, however for third-person driving in autos. Alter as you see match, however I do not advocate maxing it out because it makes driving jeeps and quick autos actually laborious.
  • Movement Blur : 10-15% or Off
    Adjusts the quantity of blur launched to the digital camera when you find yourself shifting quick or wanting round. Fortunately, BF movement blur is sort of good and when toned right down to 10-15% could make the sport look fairly clean.
    Does not have an effect on efficiency however for those who wanna go for max visibility, flip it to 0%.
  • ADS DOF Impact : Off
    This setting will blur out the sport round your scope or iron sight whereas aiming down sights. I do not actually advocate enabling it except you need it to look cinematic however, for gameplay causes, it isn’t good.
  • Chromatic Aberration, Movie Grain, Vignette and Lens Distortion : Off
    These settings introduct “filmic” filters to the graphics, and would possibly hinder efficiency a bit. There isn’t any good motive to allow them except you want one among these appears.
    Chromatic Aberration introduces some purple/blue fringing to issues on the sting of the digital camera principally.
    Movie Grain provides “grain” to the entire image to offer it an analogue look and fewer digital.
    Vignette obscures the borders of the display, as it might occur with a digital camera lens.
    Lens Distortion provides some “barrel” distortion to once more, make it look extra like a digital camera lens.

Superior Settings

This part requires extra high quality tuning in comparison with the earlier one so, let’s dive in.

  • DX12 Enabled : Off
    This permits DirectX 12 and the choice for RayTraced Reflections. I can not actually advocate it right here, neither in BF1 as a result of for some motive efficiency appears to lower and in addition introduces quite a lot of stuttering. Follow Off, which can make the sport work with DX11.
  • Excessive Dynamic Vary : Off
    Except you even have a HDR succesful monitor, flip this Off, and even then, it is most likely not going to work that properly. If it is turned on it’d make the colours look very bizarre.
  • Decision Scale : 100% or larger in case you are hitting your required FPS goal
    This can internally upscale the decision of the sport to make it look sharper and extra detailed. May assist with Antialiasing too. Solely go below 100% if you actually need some additional FPS and also you already turned every thing to Low/Off.
  • Framerate Limiter : 200/Match along with your monitor’s frequency
    The upper the framerate, the higher. Even when it is above your frequency, it’d cut back the latency and enter lag. However, normally simply matching it to your monitor’s refresh fee must be high quality so it isn’t losing vitality on additional frames.
  • Future Body Rendering : On
    This setting can enhance efficiency by 10 frames or extra normally nevertheless it would possibly introduce enter lag. I have not actually observed something so for most individuals, I like to recommend setting it to On.
  • Vertical Sync : Off
    V-Sync synchronizes the framerate to your refresh fee, to keep away from visible tearing (May seem like the display is break up in half for a second when shifting round). I like to recommend turning it Off as a result of it normally additionally introduces a fairly noticeable enter lag and would possibly cap/decrease your framerate quite a bit.
    Except you might be utilizing G-Sync or some extra superior answer and do not thoughts the enter lag, preserve it Off.
  • UI Upscaling : Auto
    Have not actually touched this, it is most likely extra related for folks with 1440p and 4k displays. In case you discover the HUD and issues like which can be too small, perhaps change this setting.
  • GPU Reminiscence Restriction : Off
    It ought to technically not have an effect on efficiency on most GPUs however simply in case and to keep away from stutters, I preserve it off. May solely be value it in case your GPU has a really small quantity of VRAM.
  • HUD Scaling : 50%?
  • Graphics High quality : Customized
    In any other case you will not have the ability to change the settings by your self
  • Texture High quality : Extremely – Change to excessive or decrease you probably have VRAM issues.
    This setting will not have an effect on efficiency except your card does not have sufficient reminiscence. Solely decrease it for those who discover stutters.
  • Texture Filtering : Extremely – Excessive
    Very minor efficiency influence so it is normally higher to maintain it excessive. Makes distant textures sharper.
  • Lighting High quality : Medium – Low
    Impacts the general lighting within the map and sport. It has some enhancements at larger settings however at a somewhat excessive FPS value. Does not degrade visible high quality an excessive amount of anyway.
  • Results High quality : Extremely
    Minimal efficiency impact. It ought to solely have an effect on particles and minor issues like that so would possibly as properly preserve it excessive.
  • Mesh High quality : Extremely
    Appears to have an effect on the complexity of rocks, mountains and terrain. Minimal efficiency value.
  • Terrain High quality : Extremely
    Appears associated to the look and high quality of floor, mud, and so on. Minimal efficiency value, as soon as once more.
  • Undergrowth : Extremely
    Impacts decorations within the map apparently nevertheless it does not have any actual efficiency value both.
  • Antialiasing Submit-Processing : TAA-Low
    The distinction between Excessive and Low, is that Excessive has a sharpening filter utilized. I like to recommend setting it to Low to keep away from it, as a result of it is too aggressive and makes the sport look odd.
    In case you want additional sharpness I’d somewhat advocate utilizing your individual Nvidia Filter, for instance.
  • Ambient Occlusion : HBAO
    This setting does have a efficiency value, however, it improves quite a bit the shading in objects to keep away from the “floating” look. Solely decrease it for those who aren’t hitting your FPS goal.
  • Excessive Constancy Objects Quantity : Medium
    It most likely does not actually have an effect on efficiency a lot however I desire to maintain it low. This settings impacts issues like distant animations of tanks, and troopers. In case you are noticing odd issues like jittery animations or bizarre strolling cycles in troopers, flip it up.


Most of those settings are private choice so, ensure to try them and take a look at issues however I can advocate a number of adjustments.


Simply make sure you examine the sensitivity, dash and zoom choices principally. Right here you’ll be able to examine for those who wanna maintain or toggle sure actions.


  • Uniform Soldier Aiming : On
    I like to recommend turning this setting On in each Battlefield sport. It makes your sensitivity really feel the identical when you find yourself zoomed-in/scoped and when simply working round or hip-firing. Specifically necessary to show it on in case you are coming from different shooters that already deal with it like that by default.
  • Coefficient : 133-178
    133 is the default worth and what works properly for most individuals. There are extra in-depth explanations about it round however, simply attempt issues out. Some guys advocate 0. Others 178. 133 is already a great setting anyway so don’t fret a lot about it.

    Similar applies for the automobile part.
  • Decouple Intention From Turning : On?
    Private choice however you would possibly wish to flip this on. Makes your cross-hair not transfer regardless of you turning your tank round, for instance. It is normally simpler to purpose like this.

Controller Tuning

  • Uncooked Mouse Enter : On
    This makes the sport bypass any Home windows settings and keep away from acceleration points and issues like that along with your mouse motion.


Minor tweaks and changes that you simply would possibly wish to look into. I am going to solely spotlight those that I believe are necessary.

Primary Settings

  • Kill Log : On/Off
    In order for you the additional info, preserve it on. I flip if Off to have much less distractions and muddle on display.
  • Crosshair
    Right here you’ll be able to change the colour of your crosshair (To shiny colours, for higher visibility in each situation, for instance) and in addition, the colour of the Holo/Nydar sights. Yellow is the default colour however you’ll be able to change it to no matter you need right here, and enhance the brightness of it too.
  • Minimap Measurement : 130 for 1080p
    Rising the scale of the minimap is an excellent thought because it will increase the quantity of knowledge you’ll be able to see, and aid you navigate by way of the map and detect enemies round you. Increased resolutions would possibly want totally different values so, take a look at it round.

Superior Settings

  • Digicam Shake Scale : 60 or decrease
    As immersive because it may be, you would possibly as properly cut back it a bit to keep away from not having the ability to see what is going on round you when there are too many explosions in your environment.

Key Bindings

That is as much as you, however there are some settings that it is best to examine.


  • Dash Slide : Bind to the identical button as Crouch(Maintain)
    Cannot slide round like different guys? Examine your key bindings. With this setting, it is possible for you to to simply press Crouch twice whereas working, and it is possible for you to to slip round, like CoD video games.


  • Pitch Up : House
    If in case you have Invert Flying enabled, use Pitch Down. With this setting it is possible for you to to do rolls and transfer round rather more simply and nonetheless purpose along with your mouse successfully.

The Finish
