Warzone 2 is proving a popular sequel, but it isn’t without its fair share of technical issues. If you’re on a mission to increase your hardware’s performance, you certainly aren’t alone.

Warzone 2 Show FPS Option, Explained

Switching on the FPS stat so that you can measure your hardware’s performance is perfectly simple. Of course, you can only do this on PC given that consoles are locked to either 30, 60, or 120 FPS depending on which model of PlayStation/Xbox you have.

For those on PC, there are two different methods to show FPS, and choosing which you use more or less is determined by which client you used to download and install the game.

Steam FPS Counter

If you’re playing via Steam, then showing FPS is a generic setting you need to activate. This is as follows:

Settings > In-Game > In-Game FPS Counter.

This will show FPS on all of your Steam games once activated.

For everyone else, it is possible to toggle on the FPS counter through an in-game setting. This can be found in the Telemetry section of your Settings menu, as seen above.

To show FPS, simply toggle the FPS Counter to On.

How to Increase FPS in Warzone 2

Similar to the overview we provided in our recent guide detailing how to reduce lag in the game, increasing FPS in Warzone 2 boils down to reducing your graphical settings. Anything set to high should obviously be reduced, and you can increase FPS by switching off features like V-Sync, on-demand texture streaming, and many others. Here’s an example of low settings that would help bolster FPS in the game without compromising your graphics too much:

  • V-Sync: Off
  • Texture Resolution: Normal
  • Texture Filter Anisotropic: Normal
