Slime Rancher 2 BOOST FPS & Reduce Input Latency Best Settings

Slime Rancher 2’s default settings are amazing. It doesn’t work well out of the box. You need 5 minutes to adjust these settings and double your FPS.

Display Settings

Display settings are pretty intuitive, but you should double check this!

Resolution: Choose your native resolution (the highest)

I recommend Fullscreen and VSYNC Disabled. This is especially important if you have a adaptive sync or Gsync monitor. This goes for all games, not just Slime Rancher.

Framerate limit: 144, this should be optimal for most PCs.

FOV: This is personal preference. Choose what you like. 90 is a good choice if you are 2-3ft from your monitor. If you use a TV and sit far away, try a lower number 70-80.

Overscan: Why is this included in a game released in 2022? Go awayyy!

Graphics Settings – Slime Rancher 2 BOOST FPS & Reduce Input Latency Best Settings

If you play at 1440p with a mid-range GPU like me (for example a GTX1070 or RTX2060S or RTX3060), these setting should work for you.

I went from 30FPS to 60FPS. I’m sure you can optimize further than this. Please experiment.

Start with the top-most setting as MEDIUMand tweak from there.

Shaders: HIGH, does not cost much FPS on my card. Worth it.

Antialiasing OFF, my personal preference.

Chromatic Aberration: Disabled, This has a significant FPS improvement. Also disabling it only improves the visual clarity. IMO, it’s kinda dumb to have this on by default.

Ambient Occlusion: Normal. This usually costs some FPS, but the visual gain is worth it.

Textures: HIGH, If you have less than 8GB of VRAM, consider setting textures Medium or Low.

Input Settings

This is important!

Mouse Smoothing: DISABLED…PLEASE do this one if nothing else.
It makes zero sense this is enabled by default. Smoothing adds significant input lag. Most modern games disable this by default. I hope future patches will correct this oversight.

Mouse Look Sensitivity: Just a casual reminder to edit the mouse sensitivity until it works for your style. Ignore the value I chose.
