Repeat after me - there is no such thing as too much FPS. That’s your church now which you should live by, especially when you are playing shooter titles as demanding of quick reactions and smooth flicks as VALORANT.

For that reason, you will want the best VALORANT video graphics settings and you probably want them preferably quick and easy? We've got you covered, especially for you folks with the gaming PCs that aren’t the absolute top of the line.

The Best VALORANT Video Graphics Settings - General

Make sure that your monitors are indeed running at their maximum refresh rate which you can enable in Windows, but also double-check in VALORANT under the general video settings in the Resolution bar. On top of the right resolution, the game will also give you a refresh rate number in brackets which you should set to the highest available numbers. With that out of the way, we can get into the best VALORANT video graphics settings to help you be a menace to VALORANT ranked play.

Resolution - (It depends)
Generally speaking, you want to stay on your native resolution. However, many great players play on lower resolution and even with a strange aspect ratio so heads appear bigger and are either to put the crosshair on (in theory). Turning the resolution down can improve your performance by a couple of frames per second.

Monitor - (Select Main Monitor)

Aspect Ratio Method - Letterbox

Limit FPS on Battery - (only matters on laptop)

Max FPS on Battery - (only matters on laptop)

Limit FPS in Menus - On

Max FPS in Menus - 144

Limit FPS in Background - On

Max FPS in Background - 30

None of these settings above are of any real importance, because they don’t impact in-game performance. Leaving them on default will generally not cause any issues.

Limit FPS Always - Off

This is where a lot of people might disagree, but not having an upper limit for your in-game FPS generally has few downsides. If you want to have a more consistent experience, limiting it to either the same amount of your refresh rate or twice of it can be a good idea. 

NVIDIA Reflex Low Latency - On + Boost 

This is a setting we recommend tinkering around with if you do have an NVIDIA graphics card. Which setting you should use here is contextual to your hardware but on+boost should be the right setting for most systems.

The Best VALORANT Video Graphics Settings - Graphics Quality

Here we get into the category with the most FPS to save. Choosing the right options here is crucial. Here are our recommendations.

best VALORANT video graphic settings

Multithreaded Rendering - On

Material Quality - Low

Texture Quality - Low

Detail Quality - Low

UI Quality - Low

Vignitte - Off

VSync - Off

Anti-Aliasing - None

Anisotropic Filtering - 1x (if possible)

Improve Clarity - On

Bloom - On

Enhanced Gun Skin Visuals - Off (as enticing it might be, it’s likely not worth it)

Distortion - Off

Shadows - Off

The only debatable settings here are whether or not Shadows and Clarity should be switched on or off. Shadows drain a significant amount of resources but seeing them can give you a competitive advantage in some edge cases.

The Best VALORANT Video Graphics Settings - Stats

This section has little to do with performance improvement but does allow you to tinker around with your settings and see which ones are giving you better numbers in real-time. 

Client FPS - Graph

Server Tick Rate - Text Only

Total Frame Time - Text Only

Idle time - Hide

CPU Game Time - Hide

CPU Render Time - Hide

Network Round Trip Time - Text Only

Packet Loss - Graph or Text Only (depending on what you prefer)

Game to Render Latency - Hide

Game Latency - Hide

Render Latency - Hide

And these are the best VALORANT video graphic settings. Hopefully you are able to get on the server in no time with these. As pointed out in some parts of the guide, you will want to try out what works best for your hardware and which specific graphic feature you think you can’t live without.
