Of course, the settings for the best FPS in Fortnite also depend on the hardware in your PC, so check out the best settings for low-end/high-end machines and a few other tricks.

Using DLSS to get better FPS in Fortnite

NVIDIA’s DLSS is a technology that allows you to pull higher resolution from the game while internally rendering it lower and therefore getting better performance. If you have an NVIDIA RTX series graphics card, you can use this option for better FPS. It is located in the Advanced Graphics section of the video tab when you scroll to the bottom. There are several settings for DLSS – Performance, Balanced, or Quality, so you can experiment with them and the resolutions you want to have until you get the best balance of performance and graphics quality.

And that’s all the settings and tricks to get the best FPS out of Fortnite on any PC, but of course, as always try experimenting with these settings yourself until you get the best performance needed to chase that Victory Royale on the island.
