Best In-Game Settings For PUBG (2023)

Besides the NVIDIA Control Settings, the in-game settings are probably the best way to improve the performance of your system without a hardware upgrade.

For me, it’s always about maximum performance, and I also accept quality losses as long as it doesn’t negatively affect my personal performance.

To that end, it’s important to note that these settings are the best for my system and therefore don’t automatically work equally well for everyone because you always have to consider the settings in combination with your monitor’s settings and the NVIDIA Control Settings.

I use a BenQ XL2546 with 240Hz. A monitor that is also used by many current pro gamers, as we could determine in our analysis in this article.

If you also have a BenQ XL2546 or want to get one, then maybe my Monitor Settings will help you, especially in combination with the following NVIDIA Control Settings.

If you are also interested in my NVIDIA Control Settings, you can find them in this article.

I have published all my settings in this article. I think it is clear that many settings are a matter of taste or habit, but there are certainly one or two you never thought about or looked deeper into.

With these settings, I have completed over 6,000 hours of play in PUBG and successfully competed in many national and international tournaments.

So I think my settings work very well as a starting point to find your personal best settings.

Let’s go!

Important explanations

Render Scale: This option artificially increases your resolution and can cost a lot of FPS. However, my system is strong enough to handle this, and I have found that this is the best way to see enemies in the landscape.

FPP Camera FOV: I also played with the value 103 for a long time, but in the meantime, I have settled on the value 90 because I can recognize enemies better and still have enough all-around visibility. Always remember that if you change this value, you also have to adjust the sensitivity.

Sensitivity: To be able to classify the sensitivity correctly, I’ll give you the following additional information. I use a Logitech G Pro X Superlight mouse with 800 DPI.

Key Input Method

Free LookHold
Hold BreathToggle
Canted SightsToggle

Important explanations

ADS: A lot of gamers use Hold, and that has its advantages. However, I have noticed that holding down the right button affects my aiming, so I use Toggle. If you use a heavier mouse than the Logitech G Pro X Superlight, it probably won’t affect your aiming as much.

Important explanations

Aim/Ads: If you assign the two functions separately, the ADS reacts faster.

Peek Left / Peek Right: This setting is very special to me. If you are used to the standard Peek settings, don’t change them. If you have problems with the default assignment Q / E like me, try my solution, this leads, of course, to the fact that one also needs various other assignments with me, e.g., Q = Jump.

Death CamDisable

Important explanations

Replay: The use of replays can (as far as I know) lead to stuttering, but it is usually mandatory if you play competitive PUBG and is absolutely necessary, especially for analyzing your own game. I never had any problems when recording replays.

Death Cam: However, the Death Cam is superfluous and can also lead to problems.


Network Debug StatisticsDisable

Important explanations

Network Debug Statistics: Showing the statistics can make sense, especially if you have problems with your internet connection and are trying to solve them. My system and fiber line are running fine, so I don’t need the statistics, and since everything always eats at least minimal resources, I usually turn this option off.

Honest recommendation: 
You have the skill, but your mouse doesn't support your aiming perfectly? Never struggle with your mouse grip again. Masakari and most pros rely on the Logitech G Pro X Superlight. See for yourself with this honest review written by Masakari or check out the technical details on Amazon right now.

A gaming mouse that fits you makes a significant difference!

Final Thoughts

For some settings, depending on your system, other options may, of course, be useful.

It took me a long time to find the perfect settings for me, and I hope that with my help, you will find your perfect settings significantly faster so that you can perform at your best.
