60 FPS and 120+ FPS
Frame rate can be capped at 60, 90, 120, 144, or left uncapped.

Anti-aliasing (AA)[edit]

Enable SSAA
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open GameUserSettings.ini.
  3. Change ScreenPercentage=100.000000 to the desired value.

Notes

Values between 100.000000 and 200.000000 are recommended.
Enable TAA
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open Engine.ini.
  3. Add this at the bottom: [/script/engine.renderersettings]
  4. Add the following lines below the previous one
r.DefaultFeature.AntiAliasing=2
r.PostProcessAAQuality=6
r.TemporalAASamples=16
r.TemporalAACurrentFrameWeight=0.45
r.TemporalAAFilterSize=0.5

Notes

TAA (Temporal Anti Aliasing) is a sharper form of AA than FXAA, however it causes blurriness during motion. It is recommended to also use the sharpen filter listed further below.

Set custom frame rate cap[edit]

Unlock the frame rate
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open GameUserSettings.ini.
  3. Change FrameRateLimit=60.000000 to the desired value.

Notes

The value will reset to default after entering the frame rate option menu ingame.

Improve graphics quality[edit]

Implement various tweaks[citation needed]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open Engine.ini.
  3. Add this at the bottom: [/script/engine.renderersettings]
  4. All settings below should be placed under the above line.
  5. Increase draw distance
    • r.ViewDistanceScale=5
    • r.SkeletalMeshLODBias=-2
    • r.StaticMeshLODDistanceScale=0.25
      • r.ViewDistanceScale=5 can be lowered or increased. A value around 3-5 is recommended to minimize visible pop-in. 1 is the default.
      • May have a substantial performance impact depending on your hardware.
  6. Improve shadow quality
    • r.Shadow.MaxResolution=8192
    • r.Shadow.CSM.MaxCascades=16
    • r.Shadow.TexelsPerPixel=10
    • r.Shadow.RadiusThreshold=0.01
      • This will also eliminate pop-in of shadows on smaller objects.
      • r.Shadow.MaxResolution=8192 can be lowered for increased performance. 512 is the default.
      • May have a substantial performance impact depending on your hardware.
  7. Add sharpen filter
    • r.Tonemapper.Sharpen=1
      • This will sharpen the image to offset the blur caused by FXAA and TAA. A value between 0.5-1.0 is recommended. It has no performance impact.
  8. Enable motion blur
    • r.MotionBlurQuality=4
    • r.MotionBlur.Amount=0.3
    • r.MotionBlur.Max=1
    • r.MotionBlur.Scale=1
    • r.MotionBlurSeparable=1
      • Motion blur can help to disguise the TAA blurring effect, as well as make a low frame rate feel smoother. It may have a small performance impact. It may also cause motion sickness and a headache for some.
