Fortnite Battle Royale is one of the most played games at the moment and more people are joining the battle bus each month. While the default settings provide a good starting point, but there are still many things you can do to increase the performance by huge margins.

Here is our Fortnite optimization guide! We hope this guide will help you with this as well.


These are the minimum system requirements for Fortnite as well as the recommended minimum PC specs. Please note that on the minimum requirements, you will only be able to play on a very low resolution with all settings on low.

As we also mentioned in Windows 10 optimization guide, you need to optimize your PC a bit before you play around with the game settings.

FIX 1. Update Graphics Drivers

Make sure that you have the latest Windows version as well as the latest GPU drivers.

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update Graphics drivers manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy. Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it, and your variant of Windows 10, and it will download and install it correctly:

Do you have a GPU from NVIDIA? Then follow these steps below.

1. Open the NVIDIA Control Panel and navigate to Manage 3D Settings

2 Go to the Program Settings tab and locate Fortnite. If you have trouble finding it, click on Add button and search for it there (try launching the game first and close it down again before doing this)

3. Change Maximum pre-rendered frames to 1.

4. Change Preferred refresh rate to “Highest available”.

5. Change Power Management Mode to “Prefer maximum performance”.

6. Change Threaded optimization to ON.

7. Change Vertical sync to OFF.

8. Click Apply and you can now close the control panel again.
