The world of Valorant is designed in a very unique way. With flashy colors and beautiful concept art, the game certainly is like no other. However, recently, a lot of users have been complaining about how the game has a lot of jagged edges and artifacts where there shouldn’t be. Here’s how you can fix all Jagged Edges in Valorant while also keeping your performance stable.
This particular fix is only meant for users who are certain that they have some Jagged Edges on their screen. You can check this by going to the Practice Range and looking at the Edge of any Object. If you notice any Shimmering / Un-Even lines, you can try to use this fix to alleviate your issue. Before you do so, make sure you are on optimal graphics settings.
How to Fix Jagged Issues / Shimmering
This entire fix is taken from this particular Reddit thread. We’ve tried it for ourselves, and we can confirm that it does make a ton of difference. However, it does impact your GPU’s overall performance quite a bit. So, if you have a low-end card and cannot give away more frames, then you should probably avoid this fix. If not, here are all the steps you need to follow:
Step 1 – Download Nvidia Profile Inspector from GitHub.
Step 2 – Open the Program and choose Valorant from the drop-down menu at the top. If you are unable to find the game, you can locate it here: Games\VALORANT\live\ShooterGame\Binaries\Win64
Step 3 – After you have selected Valorant, change the following settings:
- Antialiasing – Mode: Override any Application Settings.
- Antialiasing – Setting: 8xQ [8x Multisampling]
- Antialiasing – Transparency Supersampling: 8x Sparse Grid Supersampling
Step 4 – Click on Apply Changes at the top and exit the program after making sure you have changed all the settings.
Step 5– Go to: C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\Drs. Select two files called nvdrsdb0.bin and nvvdrsdb1.bin
Step 6 – Right click and open properties on both these files and set them to Read Only
Step 7 – Open Valorant and set Anti Aliasing to 4x MSAA if you have not done so already.
Congratulations! After doing all these steps, you should have much fewer jaggies and shimmering on your screen in Valorant. If you still suffer from the same issue, you might want to re-do all the tasks again as you might have missed a step.
