PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds PC Tweaks to Increase FPS, Change FOV, Improve Graphics and Performance

By   /   Mar 29, 2017

If you have been playing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds but are unable to get 60 FPS at 1080p then you need not worry we are going to talk about all the PC tweaks that you can do in order to get decent FPS in the game.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds PC tweaks should allow you to get 60 FPS at 1080p depending on your hardware. The following is our PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds PC tweaks guide.

It is important to mention here that it is not possible to increase FPS without having an effect on graphics. These PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds PC tweaks stress on FPS and not graphics. That is something that you should keep in mind when applying these settings.

You should also note that because the game is in early access there will be some issues that this guide cannot solve. There will be some problems that only the game developers can fix.

If you have not bought the game and do not want to risk it then you are better off waiting a bit.

According to the game’s official Steam page:

This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development.
