Bloodhunt settings

  • The first thing after getting access to the game should be to pay attention to the graphics settings. This is the easiest method to squeeze out a few extra FPS and performance.
  • The lag could be caused due to the high video setting of the game. Lowering the settings won’t make a huge difference. Aim for image clarity over quality.


  • Turn on AMD FSR 1.0 for the settings menu. It adds unnecessarily sharpening to the game which is troubling but if you are on really low-end hardware it helps always.
  • AMD FSR will give you a massive FPS boost at very minimal image quality loss.

Fix inconsistent framerate

  •  Turn on Frame Rate Smoothing. It will make the FPS jumps less visible at the cost of input lag.
  • You should keep it off unless you’re suffering from bad stutters or inconsistent framerate.
  • Try limiting your frame rate from the graphics menu to solve any high GPU usage issues

Switch between DX12 and DX11

  • Turn on DX12 by going to the graphics menu.
  • Play a match, and see how good the game is running on your system. Now, turn it off, and do the same thing.

Move the game to your SSD

  • Sharkmob has highly recommended the use of SSD for Bloodhunt.
  • Check out the system requirements section by going to the store page and scrolling down. Uninstall the game from your HDD and re-install it on SSD. It might work in some cases.

Extras requirements for better performance

  • Disable Nvidia Instant Replay or Windows Background Recording
  • Remove temporary junk files from your %temp% folder
  • Close all unnecessary applications running in the background
  • Turn off all sorts of overlays
