VALORANT Best General Settings & FPS
Settings the in-game options to the lowest settings, will generally increase your FPS (frames per seconds) and performance.
Valorant Best Settings FPS and Sight
- Set Material Quality to Med
- Set Texture Quality to Med
- Set Detail Quality to Med
- Set UI Quality to Med
- Set Vignette to Off
This decreases visibility and visual clarity so be sure to turn it off
- Set VSync to Off
Enabling VSync introduces input lag and you do not want that so be sure to turn it off
- Set Anti-Aliasing to MSAA 4x
Enabling MSAA will not cost you much performance and it will prevent blurred edges
- Set Anisotropic Filtering to 2x
Anisotropic filtering affects the sharpness of surfaces at oblique angles. You won’t see much of a difference so we recommend using a low setting here
- Set Improve Clarity to On
You want the best clarity so we recommend that you enable this setting
- Set Enhanced Gun Skin Visuals (First Person) to Off
Purely cosmetic feature, we recommend that you disable this
- Set Distortion to Off
This setting decreases visibility and clarity and you don’t want that so turn it off
- Set Shadows to On
