Warzone 2 is here and I have been having a ton of fun with it, however, when I first jumped into the game I was struggling to get over 100 Frames Per Second. While that’s not too bad, there is a big advantage to be had, playing at over 144 Frames.

While I still haven’t managed to get my first dub, I have finally managed to reach over 200 Frames per second in the game. In this article, I am going to run through the settings you should use if you want maximum FPS with good visibility.

The game won’t look stunning like it does when you play with everything maxed out in 4k but you will get a stable high performance. Let’s jump in.

Best Graphics Settings to Fix Lag, Low FPS In Warzone 2

The settings below are specifically tailored to maximise your FPS while still maintaining good visibility. If you’re playing at a much higher FPS than your competitors, you have a huge advantage in-game.

While everyone’s PC will be different, the settings below are a great place to start.
