In Theevery advantage counts, and a boost in FPS can get you the competitive edge you need to grab victory from the jaws of defeat.
When you first load into the game, it'll give you the chance to optimise your settings automatically, but as with most automatic setups, it prioritises graphics over performance. This guide will go through some key settings you can change if you want to boost your FPS.
The Cycle: Frontier - How to Boost Your FPS
Draw Distance is one of the largest impacts of any setting, but unless you're really struggling, it's advisable to keep this on Epic, as seeing an enemy coming is even more important than having the best FPS.
You can safely reduce Anti-aliasing, Shadow Quality, and Post Process Quality as these have very little affect on gameplay except to chew up performance for a better looking game.
Lowering Visual effects Quality helps with both FPS and gameplay, with more basic effects being clearer and easier to distinguish in the heat of battle.
It's not only FPS that can benefit from some tweaking, and some visuals affect how easy it is to see other players, making it easier to spot ambushes or targets at a distance.
Key in this is Foliage Quality, and setting this as low will reduce the amount of cover your opponents have to hide behind, at least to your eyes.
Motion Blur is another feature that developers add to make their games look better at the cost of clarity. Many players turn this off by default, especially in PvP games where being able to see clearly while rapidly maneuvering is a major advantage.
