Best performance and settings for Battlefield V

Battlefield V became one of the most played battlefield games due to its online multiplayer platform. Great as the game may be, the lag and performance issues that came with the game are no less of a hassle. So here is a guide to optimizing the performance and graphics settings of Battlefield V for max FPS.

Battlefield V Graphics Settings

Launch Battlefield V, Then select Options on the menu and open the Video tab. You will have to set up each graphics setting for maximum performance.

Basic Settings

Fullscreen Mode: Fullscreen.

This is the best choice for smoother gameplay and lag-free performance. Fullscreen is meant for focused gaming.

Fullscreen Resolution: Use Your Native One.

Using your native resolution is desirable for a better view, but if you badly need a performance boost, decreasing the resolution will greatly improve your fps. 720p is usually a solid compromise between quality and performance.

Field of View: 75 or Higher

A wider field of view (FOV) increases your vision, but at the same time, all the targets are smaller. So the FOV is a personal choice in that sense so choose the best setting for yourself.

Vehicle 3P Field of View: 95.

It helps spot enemies from the vehicle. Higher values are better for gameplay advantage.

ADS Field of View: Off.

This adds lag in some cases when you switch to ADS. Better to turn it off. especially if you want quick kills.

Motion Blur: 0%.

Why do you want to blur your vision? Turn this setting off.

ADS DOF Effects: Off.

Disable it. This setting causes lag while aiming in ADS for low-end systems.

Chromatic Aberration: Off.

Chromatic Aberration is a visual effect that distorts the game image, which results in making the game look more realistic because of detailed reflections. It does make the game look good but at the cost of resources. Enable this setting if you have a good graphics card.

Film Grain: Off.

Never use this setting. It only adds lag and creates a filmy effect in-game. The film grain makes the game look slightly blurry as well.

Vignette: Off.

This setting creates a darkening effect making the night scenes more realistic. It does consume a bit of resources so I recommend turning it off.

Lens Distortion: Off.

All the settings above only create unnecessary visual effects on your screen that are bad for gameplay and performance. Turn off these graphics settings to get a good performance and FPS boost.

Advanced Graphics Settings

Performance Settings

DX12 Enabled: It Depends On Your PC.

Some players have a better framerate in DX11 and others in DX12, so you should test it on your own PC. Try DX12 for newer systems and laptops. You will get better performance.

HDR: Off

Turn this off unless you have a GPU with more than 4GB VRAM.

DXR Enabled: Off.

This setting is shown only on high-end systems. Still, I recommend turning this off unless you have an RTX card

Nvidia DLSS: Off.

Same as above, this depends on the specs of your system. On newer systems use this to get better fps

Resolution Scale: 100% or 90%.

Do not change this setting as it causes blurry textures. Totally not worth changing this. The game will be hardly playable.

Framerate Limiter: Your Monitor Refresh Rate.

This is the FPS cap. I suggest keeping it at the same value as your monitor refresh rate (60, 120, or 144Hz).

Future Frame Rendering: On.

Disabling the Future Frame Rendering graphics setting provides a better mouse input speed at the cost of an FPS drop, so you should turn it Off only if you have already enough FPS. For competitive gameplay turn it off.

Vertical Sync: Off.

Always turn this off. This setting always reduces FPS.

GPU Memory Restriction: Off.

Turn this off, you need to reduce any restrictions on GPU while gaming.

Quality Settings For Battlefield 5

Graphics Quality: Custom.

If you want to get the MAX FPS then set everything to Low. That is generally the best solution for the Battlefield V game since it’s very graphics intensive.

Texture Quality: Medium or High.

This setting depends mostly on the VRAM available on your graphic card, so it barely affects your FPS.

Medium or High is better for a great gameplay experience in the Battlefield V.

Texture Filtering: Low or Medium.

this affects your FPS and game quality a lot. So at least go for medium.

Effects Quality: Low

Low is the best since the effects are not necessary for the actual gameplay.

Lighting Quality: Low.

Definitely set it at low since you need the extra FPS.

Post Process Quality: Low.

Also, set these graphics settings to low since you can get an easy FPS boost.

Mesh Quality: Low or High.

If you set Mesh Quality to Low, some objects such as buildings, fortifications, trees, rocks, etc. won’t render past a certain distance in the game. This setting, however, doesn’t influence player models so it’s recommended to set it to low.

You will be able to spot enemies better and have an easy time sniping them.

Terrain Quality: Low.

This setting will drop the gameplay experience a little but give a very good boost to FPS. So turn it to low.

Undergrowth Quality: Low.

This setting influences the amount of foliage, so putting it on Low helps against sneaky soldiers and enemies hiding. Definitely choose low for competitive games.

Antialiasing Post-Processing: TAA Low.

I wish we could disable it but we cannot. So let’s just set it to the lowest setting possible.

Ambient Occlusion: Off.

Turn it off. It’s not worth the FPS drop you get in Battlefield V

DXR Raytrace Reflections Quality: Low.

This appears on high-end systems. Still, I recommend turning this setting off for an increase in FPS.

FX Amount: Low.

Same as above.

  • That’s all! Click Apply to save the changes. Now restart the game
