How To Fix FPS Drops and Other Issues in Minecraft Legends

The first thing that you can try to do is lower the overall graphical quality of the game, so while it may not look as beautiful as it could, it should at least run better. There are not many graphical options that you can customize, so we recommend turning down the following to help it run better than ever:

  • Fullscreen Resolution – Try a slightly lower resolution to see if it runs faster
  • Rendering Detail Level – Lower it a step to see if your FPS increases

While there are not many graphical options, one of the best bets overall is to wait for a new patch to drop into the game, which should tidy things up compared to where they are now. There is also a chance that they may add more graphical sliders in the future, but bumping down either the resolution or the rendering detail level should help you get up and running better.

The other answer is making sure that everything in the background is closed down. Shut down your internet browser, close out some of the other programs that are running, and see if that helps improve your overall game feel. If you’re a die-hard Minecraft fan and can’t fathom playing Minecraft Legends in anything less than the best, you could also upgrade some of the components of your PC to get the best experience possible.

But, as it stands, the best option for players playing on lower-end PCs, or even those on Higher End systems, is to wait for an official patch to come out and tidy things up. Until then, play around with graphical settings and find what works best for you overall. Even on Low, the game still looks stellar and plays great when its frame rate is buttery smooth.
