A good frame rate is essential when you play an online game, especially when it’s Valorant since it’s what makes the game good and eliminates lag. In Valorant, it is important to improve FPS rates.
The frame rate (FPS) of a shooting game, like Valorant is required to enable you to spot your enemies more quickly and accurately, which helps you win trades or score headshots, while also providing a smoother gameplay experience.
It is a competitive, tactical multiplayer online FPS. The success of Counter-Strike has been surpassed by this game in years. Valorant, CS:GO, and other tactical shooters require a constant stream of FPS to function. The more frames you get, the better experience you will feel.
In competitive games, 120 frames per second is recommended, which might not be possible on low-end hardware. But Valorant’s FPS can be increased with some adjustments to the game settings.
How to improve FPS in Valorant
When it comes to improving your framerate in valorant or any other game, you must look at two areas, And that 2 areas or two ways are to change your game settings and optimize your computer the way your computer runs it. Valorant’s performance can be increased by optimizing this both ways which will increase your frames per second.
It is also extremely important to have a good monitor when playing shooting games. Even if Valorant is a game, designed to require the least amount of hardware, hardcore FPS players often choose a monitor with over 240hz. Lag can also be minimized by having a reliable internet connection.
Note: Press “Windows Key” then type something to search.
Now, Let’s start by checking your Windows that it’s up to date or not. To check this, search setting or go to Setting then “Update & Security”.
Game Mode helps to get a higher and stable frame when you turn it on which is really great.
Search “Power & sleep settings” on the search bar then it will open on Setting then click the “additional power setting” at the right-hand side then it will open the Control Panel or simply go to control panel and replace the URL with this “Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options” and press enter. Both ways, you will reach this/above page. Now select the High Performance power plan.
Always try to open Valorant as an administrator. Or right-click the Valorant desktop icon and you will see the property option on the bottom, then click that and you will see the popup, Now go to compatibility mode and mark/enable it as run as an administrator.
The last thing, When you’ll play Valorant, always try to close your background app, this way other applications won’t able to use resources, and chances will be high to get better fps and you will be able to play smoothly.
Search “Adjust the appearance and performance of Windows” on the Search bar and you will able to see this page, this way you can get better performance but the experience of windows will be so bad because this way you are disabling the animation of Windows. So it’s up to you either you change or not.
Open Valorant, go to your Task manager then go to the Details tab. While Valorant opened in the background, then you will able to see Valorant on this Details tab. Right on it and change the priority to high.
Optimizing In-Game Settings
Now, let’s optimize the game settings for better fps. So go to the Video tab in the Settings.
Things are you have to change in your Valorant general setting to improve FPS:
Tips: make sure you set OFF to Limit FPS Always and turn On the NVIDIA Reflex Low Latency too (if your GPU support it).
The changes include reducing Material Quality, Texture Quality, Detail Quality, UI Quality, and Anisotropic Filtering & everything. Try to follow those above settings.
Optimizing GPU Settings
Note: If you already have a driver, make sure it’s up to date.

Open your Nvidia Control panel then go to the tab called Manage 3D settings, Then click to Program Settings. And now Add settings for Valorant
I have added 3 images in one image, so you guys will have to scroll in the Nvidia control panel for all of these settings. Try to follow these settings or if you have a better idea, feel free to apply.

Optimizing AMD Radeon Settings
These settings are just for AMD GPU users, so if you don’t have AMD GPU, feel free to skip this section.
Open your AMD Radeon Settings then go to the tab called Gaming, Then click to Valorant. And now add these settings for Valorant.
As Intel GPU is integrated GPU, So there aren’t many optimizations.
