Valheim Best Graphics Settings to fix lag

Valheim Best Graphics Settings to fix lag

Resolution : Max

The game quality is honestly not that great. So you need to play in the max resolution your system supports. Its only a 1gb game which in this day and age is as rare as phoenix feathers.

Fullscreen: Enabled

Its a immersive game you need to play it in fullscreen guys.

Vegetation Quality: Low/Medium

Low or medium settings are recommended since you can spot loot better. You can easily locate loot items due to lack of vegatation hampering your vision.

Particle Lights: Medium or High

I recommend Medium or High settings since It helps you see better in night in some locations. Can you you a in game advantage since nights are treacherous in Valheim.

Draw Distance/ Level of DETAIL: Medium or High

Helps spot distant enemies and bosses. Trust me being able to spot enemies is a must required skill. With max draw distance you can easily spot enemies and prepare accordingly.

Shadow Quality: Lowest Possible

Can increase your fps by a lot. The lower the shadow quality the higher the fps. Shadows have almost no impact on gameplay.

Bloom: Off

Bloom effect does make the scenery look a bit better especially during the day but is not required and sometimes its overkill. Disable it for a minor increase in FPS


Similar to Bloom Ambient occlusion is a unnecessary graphics effect you can disable for extra FPS.

Sun Shafts: Off

Just disable it. Its unnecessary. Does increase FPS slightly. Turing it off is better.

Motion Blur: Off

Why do want motion Blur. Simply turn it off and enjoy lag free gameplay.

Tessellation: Off

Tessellation makes certain in-game objects looks better and more detailed. If you have a large screen monitor then enable it otherwise you can disable it.

Soft Particles: On

I personally liked this option to be on. The game simply felt better on my 25inch gaming monitor. Might be due to my monitor size though. Makes the game feel smoother

Depth of Field: Off

Unnecessary and you will hardly notice the difference. The difference is noticed in dungeons though but its a small price to pay for lag free gaming.

Anti Aliasing: On

The game gets blurry textures if you disable anti aliasing. I recommend using this to avoid the blurry/eddy textures in game.

Chromatic Aberration: Off

Unnecessary graphics effect you can safely disable it.

Thats all folks. These were the best graphics settings for Valheim. If you liked the post then do share it with fellow players. If you are still facing lag issues then checkout the guide to make your pc/laptop faster for gaming.

Happy Gaming Fellow Vikings. See you in-game
