One major complaint from Escape from Tarkov players is consistent drops in frames-per-second – but a new fix has been discovered that boosts FPS both quickly and easily.

In any multiplayer game, you want to be getting as many frames as possible per second – it allows you to react slightly quicker and generally provides a much smoother gaming experience.

In Escape From Tarkov, this is just as important as in any other game, but players have found that their FPS can be quite up-and-down, but this new fix will help you keep it as high as possible.

Escape from Tarkov has a committed fanbase, despite not meeting the heights of competitors such as Apex Legends and Fortnite.

EFT player abudabi discovered this trick, and saw his FPS rise from 92 up to 102 immediately after using it – more than a 10% increase. To get this FPS gain, abudabi simply re-applied fullscreen mode before each raid, with the change coming in to effect straight away.

In a Reddit thread after posting the video, they added that one of his friends tried the same method and the game went from unplayable to a comfortable level, so this could be an absolute necessity if you’re struggling to play the game right now.

It’s not quite clear why exactly this happens; maybe it’s simply a reset of the graphical settings that puts everything back to its optimal state, but how this occurs is somewhat of a mystery.

If you’re having issues with FPS and game performance, this might be a decent quick fix, at least temporarily.

Obviously, it’s not ideal to have to reset fullscreen mode every time you take part in a raid, but it’s definitely better than nothing, and maybe it will inspire developer Battlestate Games to look into why players are facing performance issues.
