How to get higher FPS in Warzone 2

For higher FPS in Warzone 2, make sure you adjust your display, quality and view settings as shown above. While some of these settings are a matter of preference, we’d recommend trying these settings first. If you’re not satisfied with the FPS you’re seeing there are a couple more things to do.

First, make sure your graphics card’s drivers are up to date, by using the official applications from either Nvidia or AMD.

Next, make sure you’re not running lots of applications in the background. Web browsers like Chrome for example can often take up CPU usage, causing your gameplay to be bottlenecked. Closing other applications can improve FPS.

Finally, the most expensive but effective option is to buy a new graphics card with more power. For that, check out our list of the best graphics cards here.
