5 Tips to Increase Overwatch FPS on PC

Overwatch may not be a graphically demanding game, but we know that's not how many players feel. Do you want to be part of the competition, but your computer is having problems running the game?

Then check out our tips for improving Overwatch's performance without seeing the graphics deteriorate dramatically. It's worth remembering that you should always play the game at your screen's native resolution and follow the game's recommendations for graphics.

Our 5 tips are for options that can be found at Options – Video – Advanced, choosing the mentioned detail.

1. Say goodbye to Dynamic Reflections

Changing the Dynamic Reflections settings will certainly be the change with the biggest impact on Overwatch's fps. A detail discovered by a Reddit user – raydialseeker – will make all the difference when it comes to increasing the framerate.

Turn this option off and you will get up to 50% improvement in fps about the game. The visual impact on the game will be minimal and you will see how it was worth turning off the option.

And what are Dynamic Reflections anyway? This is a visual detail that makes it possible for characters to reflect on reflective surfaces such as water, glass, among others. Turning this option off only takes away your character's reflection, not affecting the reflections of buildings and other objects in the setting.

2. Decrease Shadow Detail

As its name implies, this option controls the depth and amount of shadows in the scene. The higher, the greater the detail and level of realism in your game experience.

We recommend that you try putting the Shadow Detail option on a low level so as not to compromise the game. If you like to play ranked in Overwatch, it's important to have all the information when attacking and defending – and enemy shadows can make all the difference at this point.

If competition is not your reason for playing Overwatch, then you can turn this option off. What will happen is that some shadows will not be displayed (like those of the opponents), but the realism will not be greatly affected.

3. Model details must be reviewed

The Model Details option affects the quality and detail of elements in a scenario. To actually see framerate changes, you need to change option to Down. Turning off Model Details takes a lot of visual information out of the game and can compromise your experience.

4. Turn off Local Fog Details

This is one of those options where it's very difficult to say what really changes in the game. We know that turning off Local Fog Details brings one of the biggest improvements to fps, being able to up to 20% in your performance.

5. If nothing works, then it's time to tweak the Render Scale

It may happen that you are doing everything you can to get the most out of your computer, but even then you can't increase the fps. In that case, the Render Scale option can help achieve your goal.

We recommend down this scale to a maximum of 75%. Don't go any lower than that or the game's visuals will be too pixelated, resulting in a loss of graphical fidelity.
