Best Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds Settings


Last Updated on September 14, 2020 by Scott Krager

There is no denying that Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (pubg) is without a doubt one of the hottest battle royale game out in the market at the moment. The brainchild of Brendan Greene who started the whole battle royale craze, PUBG is finally out of its early access, and has become a massive success with two different mobile versions already out on the mobile platform.

With all the things aside, if there is one thing that has not changed since the early access, it is the fact that the game requires a pretty beefy PC in order to run everything properly, or at least give you the 60 frames that have been the demand of many PC gamers for years now.

With that said, the good thing is that much like many other PC games in the market, the amount of tweaks that you can make to the game are on the higher side, meaning that you are going to have an easier time changing all the settings you want.

Before we begin, have a look at the minimum and recommended requirements of the game so you already know what you should expect.

While the requirements definitely indicate that the game is not taxing at all, it certainly can be a chore to run. So do check out the tweaks below.

Graphic Settings

The graphic settings in PUBG are plenty, and they do work as they are intended to. Meaning that turning them on and off will certainly have an impact on the performance, but at the same time, it will have an impact on how the game will look. Keeping that in mind, the important thing that you need to know here.

The graphic settings here are divided in two portions to ensure that there is no confusion among the users whatsoever.


This section of the graphic settings gives you the option to tweak settings such as brightness, screen mode, as well as FOV.

  • Screen Mode: Full Screen.
  • Resolution: Based on your monitor’s native resolution, or the one you prefer.
  • FPS Camera FOV: Based on your personal preference, can only be seen in FPS mode.
  • Brightness: Should be adjusted as per your needs.


This is where all the fun things lie for many people as this is the area where you will be able to make the most amount of changes, and will get the proper results as well. So, let’s have a look, shall we?

  • Quality: Set it to custom because that way, you will be able tweak everything separately.
  • Screen Scale: The next up, you need to leave it on default, because increasing it can have a drastically negative impact on your performance. You can even decrease it if the quality is not that big of a concern to you.
  • Anti-Aliasing: Usually, this is the feature that has the biggest impact on your performance, so you should definitely turn it to very low if you can tolerate the jagged edges. The good news here is that if you are running the game on a higher resolution, you are likely to have a lot less jags, so that is certainly a good thing.
  • Post-Processing: If you want the maximum visibility in game, you can turn the post-processing to very low. However, since the visual change is going to be there as well, it is entirely up to you to see which setting looks best.
  • Shadows: Just like it would in the real world, the higher the shadows, the darker the game would become. However, in PUBG, if you turn the shadows high, you are going to go through an issue of not being able to spot people properly. That is why I would suggest that you keep the shadows to very low, or turn them off entirely.
  • Texture: Are you more concerned about the game looking pretty, or just having enough power to allow the game to run properly, and without any issue? Well, this is where you have to make the choice. If your PC can handle it, you can bump up the textures to the max possible setting, but if it can’t, then just keep them lowered so you will have a good experience. It is just that simple.
  • Effects: They serve the same purpose as the textures do, and it all depends on how powerful your PC.
  • Foliage: Back in the older days, people could turn foliage to the lowest possible settings, and would be able to spot enemies a lot easier considering how there was no grass once the foliage was turned down to the minimum.
  • View Distance: This feature has amassed some controversy ever since the game came out. At one end, turning this all the way down gives you a massive performance boost, however, at the same time, turning it up could eat up your frames. But the caveat here is that if you turn it down, you will get the performance, but you won’t be able to see far into the distance, which means no player spotting from afar either. So, be careful when tweaking this feature, and only do so if your PC allows you to.
  • Motion Blur: If you really want to enjoy your gaming experience, please turn off the motion blur because it can ruin your gaming experience a lot, especially if you have issues with nauseating things.
  • V-Sync: Last but not the least, you are going to take a look at V-Sync, now this feature entirely depends on whether you have a G-Sync/Free-Sync monitor or not. If you do have the said monitor with the proper graphics card, then turning the V-Sync off is the right idea. But if you don’t you can just let the V-Sync on and it will not give you any issues whatsoever.

Once you are done making all these changes, you just have to click on Apply, and then click on OK to make sure everything is in effect. Simply go ahead and start a match to see if everything is working as per your requirements. This is really as simple as that – PUBG offers a lot of tweaking, and that is really good for the PC Gaming community
