If you're playing on PC, you may be wondering what the best settings for Bloodhunt on PC are so you can improve your FPS and experience the smoothest gameplay.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt is the latest battle royale to hit the market, and if you want to compete with the other clans of vampire children in the game, you will need the most optimal settings possible.

Best settings for performance

When it comes to changing your individual settings in-game, you'll want to aim for getting the best performance possible. Bloodhunt is a competitive multiplayer game after all, so the smoother everything runs, the easier time you'll have fighting enemy vampires.

There are several settings that are definitely worth changing regardless of your PC's hardware, but for the most part, it will depend on what setup you are running with.

Display Mode Anything other than Full Screen will cause you to drop some frames
Resolution Set it to whatever your native resolution is
Enable Vsync Only enable this if you get screen tearing from higher FPS
Frame Rate Limit This should be 60 at the lowest, unless your PC is far below the recommended specs
Resolution Scale Setting this below the default of 100 can cause the game to look blurry, but changing this is a good option for players really struggling with low framerates
View Distance Setting this to high is the best choice for staying competitive, but it can cause frame drops due to having to render more of the environment
Material Quality Low is the best choice here as it will give you a small FPS boost without changing the quality too much
Texture Quality Medium is perfectly fine, and the game will still look great with this setting, but setting this higher won't change performance massively
Texture Filtering Keeping this on the lower end, at least below 8x, will keep the game looking crisp and doesn't change performance much
Effects Keeping this on low will improve the overall visibility and get rid of unnecessary effects that lower frames
Foliage Doesn't make a big FPS impact, but keeping it low to medium is preferable
Lighting Quality The higher this setting is the less visibility you will have, so keep it low for better performance and a clearer picture
Volumetric Fog Quality Turn this off completely, as it's just another setting that can reduce frames otherwise
Ambient Occlusion This doesn't make a big difference to visuals, but it's another unnecessary setting to keep enabled
Screen Space Reflection This is a big resource hog, so turning it off will net you a decent frame rate boost
Shadow Quality Shadows can be demanding, so keep this to low or medium
Anti-Aliasing FXAA is the better option if you want this enabled for the smoother edges, but turning it off can help performance improve
Subsurface Scattering Doesn't seem to make a difference to performance, but it's another setting you should keep turned off
Motion Quality The most redundant visual setting ever created, keep it off
Chromatic Aberration Another unnecessary setting you can keep off
Film Grain Personal preference, but it's another setting that doesn't add anything of value
Bloom Turning this off will make the game clearer and improve visibility
Lens Flare This isn't a JJ Abrams film, turn it off for clearer visibility
Light Shafts Can help to illuminate players in shadowy areas, but it doesn't make a big performance impact either way

The above settings will give you a good starting point to test what works for you. We suggest playing a game with these first and then making any adjustments as necessary.

All PCs are different, and a one-size-fits-all approach doesn't really work, so keep experimenting until you are consistently reaching at least 60 frames per second. The game is also optimised fairly well, so you shouldn't struggle too much even on lower-end hardware.
