PUBG Battlegrounds Performance Guide: Optimize Your Settings

Even now, PUBG Battlegrounds continues to rule Steam. To John’s dismay, it continues to draw large audiences even with the most recent map, Vikendi. There are now four maps and a more intricate weapon set. It is not surprising that the game itself is still incredibly popular, even though its general appeal may be declining slightly in the face of some fierce competition: For the purpose of an ethereal chicken feast, dump 100 people onto a map and instruct them to forage and murder. It won’t be easy to earn the meal ticket, so we’ve put up a ton of advice to help you experience that sweet, sweet triumph.

PUBG Battlegrounds Graphical Settings Guide

This section examines the PUBG Battlegrounds‘ graphical settings in detail as well as how they affect gameplay.

The measured difference in average frame rate between playing the game at all settings at maximum (Ultra) and lowering the intensity of the setting in question to Very Low while leaving all other settings unchanged is referred to as the “performance impact” in each of the subsections below.

Quality: A mix of the other parameters’ presets makes up quality. The other options will automatically change if this one is changed. Use this to simply find a decent balance between performance and visual quality if you don’t want to fiddle with the detailed settings.

Performance Impact: Up to 50% between Very Low and Ultra

Resolution: Resolution has an impact on the game’s detail and display size. While higher resolutions display more detail up to the native display resolution of your monitor, they will perform poorer than lower ones.

For example, as long as the CPU is not a bottleneck, 1600×900 can perform 30% better than 1080p. 1080p can perform up to 4x better than 4K.

Post Processing: A variety of “final touches” to the PUBG Battlegrounds‘ visuals are controlled by the Post Processing setting, which includes character details, depth blurring, more accurate lighting calculations, and more.

Performance Impact: ~18-20% between Very Low and Ultra

Shadows: All of the PUBG Battlegrounds’ shadows—from players to structures—have different levels of accuracy, realism, and anti-aliasing depending on the shadow setting. Because you’re often exploring deserted houses during the day, this option offers one of the most significant graphic quality changes in PUBG.

Performance Impact: ~10-20% between Very Low and Ultra

Textures: The amount of detail on the surfaces and other items in the PUBG Battlegrounds is controlled by this parameter. Up to the point where there are too many textures for your graphics card’s RAM, changing the texture quality has no effect on performance. The performance impact increases at that point. Textures can be adjusted to ultra if your graphics card has 4GB or more VRAM. High or medium should be plenty for you if you have 3GB.

Performance Impact: ~4-20% between Very Low and Ultra

Anti-Aliasing: The process of making sharp lines and edges appear smoother and less jagged—or “pixelated”—is known as anti-aliasing.

Performance Impact: ~5-10% between Very Low and Ultra

Foliage: The PUBG Battlegrounds’ trees and shrubs can be displayed at different resolutions by adjusting the foliage setting. Because the difference between Ultra and Very Low settings is so small, it initially appeared during testing that this setting had no effect at all. To see the difference, closely examine the bush on the right in the photo below.

Performance Impact: ~4-6% between Very Low and Ultra

View Distance: How far out from your current position the game displays objects and structures depends on the view distance option. As can be seen below, the lowest distance permitted by this setting is rather distant from the player (perhaps to prevent players from taking advantage of this setting to see through walls).

Performance Impact: ~4-6% between Very Low and Ultra

Motion Blur: Moving objects appear as streaks due to motion blur. While some gamers believe it reduces fidelity, others appreciate it since it might smooth out ragged details. Turn it on or off based on your preference; there is no noticeable impact on performance!

Performance Impact: Negligible

Choosing the Best Settings for PUBG

We advise leaving things as they are if your computer is able to maintain a consistent 60 frames per second with all the parameters adjusted to your preferred resolution. To achieve even better performance, you can drop some PUBG settings to increase your framerate without significantly compromising on graphics quality if you’re not getting 60 frames per second or if you have a dedicated display with a higher refresh rate. Sadly, reducing more than one parameter won’t have a clear-cut cumulative impact on framerate. For example, if you reduce one setting by 10% and another by 10%, lowering both won’t result in a 20% boost in framerate—rather, it might be closer to 12–18%.

  • Increase FPS significantly with minimal to no effect on graphics
  • Disable “Foliage” and “View Distance” (even the lowest of these is currently comparable to the highest).
  • Instead of using the “Ultra” preset, select “High.” This maintains a high visual quality while increasing FPS by 30%.
  • Increase FPS significantly while having a minimal influence on the visuals
  • Set the view distance, foliage, and anti-aliasing to very low.
  • Reduce “Shadows” to a minimum of Medium.
  • Utilize the setting “Medium”.
  • Last Resorts

If following all of the above instructions does not result in the framerate you want, try some of the following:

  • Reduce “Shadows” to a very low level.
  • Reduce “textures” or “post-processing” to at least Medium.
  • Use the “Very Low” preset as a very last resort.
  • Upgrading your hardware might be necessary if you’ve tried everything listed above and the PUBG Battlegrounds is still not running as smoothly as you would like.
