Valorant is a game of milliseconds. Every encounter a player has can be impacted by the slightest difference in skill, positioning, or even hardware. Game elements such as ping or FPS can influence gunfights, and unlike ping, there are a number of ways to get better FPS based on a player's PC.

Here are a few of the ways that players can increase FPS in Valorant.

How to Get More FPS in Valorant

1. Lower Graphical Settings

Playing on fancy graphics can be fun, especially in games where players are supposed to take in the scenery. However in a tactical shooter like Valorant, being able to compete at a even field with opponents is most important.

2. Play in Native Resolution

Some players enjoy playing in different resolutions that make them feel comfortable, but playing on other resolutions than the native one can lead to lower FPS and overall worse performance. Switching to the default resolution of a player's PC will lead to the most stable performance.

3. Turn Off V-Sync

This setting has to do with the refresh rate of the monitor and can lower performance quite a bit. Turning this setting off will almost surely lead to better performance on any player's PC.
