VALORANT FPS Settings – A Better Gameplay Experience


Definition of FPS

FPS has a dual meaning. The term both refers to First Person Shooter and Frame per Second. VALORANT abides by both terms yet we will be discussing FPS as Frame per Second in this article. FPS indicates the measurement of the frame rate which is the number of frames your computer can output per second. Your hardware and software define this by the number of consecutive images that are displayed each second.

Us humankind can perceive 12 images per second. The higher FPS is, the smoother motion becomes. Most games limit frame rate up to 60, to sustain optimum performance and experience. However, lower and inconsistent rates are usually a nightmare for gamers.

Is FPS that important on VALORANT?

The answer is an absolute yes. FPS is one of the most important things when it comes to competitive games like VALORANT.

Riot games have 128-tick servers with a quite stable system overall for a game that is still on beta. However, this is not enough for individuals with different setups. You need to optimize your system to get higher stats for a smooth experience.

Benefits of Higher FPS

Having increased FPS increases your chances of hitting your opponent. It smooths out your gameplay, giving you an all-out experience. Having a higher FPS reduces input lag and gives you the best reaction time possible. By having almost no input lag, you can turn around faster, pick your enemies, and allows distinguishing moving objects from the environment better.
