Deathloop: Best Graphics Settings for Performance

If you’ve recently started playing Deathloop and are facing low fps, freezing, and various performance issues, don’t blame your gaming rig just yet. We have gathered the optimal Graphics Settings which may get you a consistent frame rate and make your experience more bearable. Check them out below:

  • Change your Ambient Occlusion setting by opening Options – Visuals – Advanced Settings and set FidelityFX CACAO to Balanced. You can go even lower with setting for better performance at the cost of image quality.
  • Turn off Depth of Field as it usually occurs during during battle scenes when perfoamnce is already lowest. Its reccommended to turn if off if you’re facing less than 50 frames per second.
  • Turning V-sync off from Options – Visuals – Video Settings will give a boost to your frame rate but some users have experienced screen tearing, making it difficult to play. If you want to avoid that, you can always go to your GFX card’s own settings and turn it on there. NVidia’s Control Panel has the option under Manage 3D settings.
