Best PC Settings for Overwatch 2 to Boost FPS

Overwatch 2 is pretty much the same game as the first one. It uses the same engine, framework, and infrastructure. But it does have quite a few changes that make it look better everywhere. All of the old heroes and a lot of the maps have been made to look better.

Still, unlike many other problems at launch, the optimization of the game seems to be great so far, and the game runs quite smoothly. So, let’s look at what you can do to make it work better.

First, let’s set up some important Windows settings. Each of these settings can be changed by using the Windows search function. First, make sure that the Game Mode is on.

Second, make sure Xbox Game Bar is turned off. Last, look for “Graphics settings” and turn on “Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling.” Even though it should go without saying, make sure you have the most recent GPU drivers installed. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s look at the best PC settings for Overwatch 2:
