How to Disable the Chromatic Aberration Effect in Wuthering Waves

Improve image quality, and reduce headaches!

Wuthering Waves is built on Unreal Engine 4 and has a decent amount of settings for players to adjust on PC. While it’s nice to see support for upscaling technologies like DLSS, and FSR it’s missing a few post-processing toggles that get in the way of image quality. If you want to disable the dreaded chromatic aberration effect in Wuthering Waves, here’s how you can easily do that.

Disable the Chromatic Aberration Effect in Wuthering Waves

To remove the chromatic aberration effect, you need to add a few lines to the game’s Engine.ini file.

  • Head over to where Wuthering Waves is installed on your PC, and navigate to the following location.
Wuthering Waves\Wuthering Waves Game\Client\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor
  • Here, open the Engine.ini file using a text editor like Notepad, or Notepad++
  • Add the following lines at the bottom of the file, like this:
  • Save the file (Ctrl + S), and exit out

That’s all you need to do, and the next time you launch Wuthering Waves, the chromatic aberration effect will be completely disabled.

Comparison Screenshots

Here are a few screenshots that showcase how sharper the game looks without chromatic aberration enabled. The effect is almost always applied at the edge of different objects, and the overall screen, and it’s a bit aggressive in the case of Wuthering Waves.

To give an even closer look, I’ve specifically focused on the bush on the left, and the rocks on the right.

Restoring the Effects

If you wish to turn chromatic aberration back on, you can simply follow the steps from above, and remove the lines you added to the Engine.ini file.

It’s pretty common for a lot of modern PC releases to have in-game toggles for post-processing effects like chromatic aberration, film grain, and depth of field. We’re hopeful that the developers add it to Wuthering Waves in a future update.
