  • Update your game. Sometimes it’s not done automatically so if you’re not seeing it, you’ll have to check for an update manually. Make sure to turn automatic updates on for ease of access.
  • Hit Escape from the Overwatch 2 main menu, go to Options, then Video. Turn off Dynamic Render Scale there. Under Graphics Quality, you can toggle High-Quality Upsampling (from Default to AMD FSR 1.0 or vice versa).
  • Try turning off Anti-Aliasing, or pushing it to the highest.
  • Ultimately, if nothing works, delete and reinstall the game. Yes, it takes a while, especially when servers are overloaded, but it’s worth it if it solves the issue.
