How to increase FPS in Call of Duty: Warzone

There’s nothing worse than dropping frames in CoD: Warzone, especially when you’re in the middle of an intense gunfight. Sadly, it’s during the more action-packed moments where FPS drops can happen in Modern Warfare Warzone. While it’s understandably that the 150-player mode is going to push hardware to its limits, as the huge player count and massive map are obviously going to be taxing whether you’re on PC, PS4, or Xbox One, you’ll still need a smooth experience to be able to perform optimally. Here’s how to increase FPS in Call of Duty: Warzone.

How to increase FPS in Call of Duty: Warzone on PC

  • First, make sure your drivers are up to date!
    • To give yourself the best chance of running Warzone smoothly on PC, you’re going to want to download the latest Nvidia or AMD drivers for your graphics card.
  • Run the game in fullscreen mode.
    • At the time of writing, anything but fullscreen mode can introduce an odd stutter that drastically impacts playability. Go fullscreen!
  • Choose the best PC settings for performance.
    • The main culprits of sucking up FPS in the graphics settings are: Shadow Map Resolution, Raytracing, and Ambient Occlusion. I’d also disable all types of motion blur.
  • Make use of Render Resolution.
    • Decreasing the Render Resolution option from 100 is an easy way to boost FPS. For example, going from 100 to 95 can help push lower-end hardware over that sweet 60 FPS point.

How to increase FPS in Call of Duty: Warzone on PS4 and Xbox One

  • Tweak what you can.
    • Though customizable graphics options are pretty limited on console, you are able to disable motion blur and film grain.
  • Avoid demanding areas.
    • Some locations on the map are more demanding than others. If you suffer FPS drop in Downtown, for example, you might want to drop elsewhere. Once a good number of players have left the game, performance generally stabilizes, so later circles shouldn’t be too taxing on your system.
  • Maybe it’s time for an upgrade?
    • The base PS4 and Xbox One can struggle to run Call of Duty: Warzone. Perhaps it’s time to consider an upgrade to a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X.
