Best Settings for Escape From Tarkov in 2023

Frames per second (FPS) and visibility are elements of gameplay that are impacted by changes made to the Graphics tab. To improve visibility performance, you'll want to keep everything as low as possible, so your computer doesn't need to work harder than is absolutely necessary. The only time this changes is when you need to look at things that are further away or are checking out the map, at which point you'll want to temporarily boost the visibility a bit to around 1500 instead of the recommended 400.

When improving FPS, the rule of thumb is to reduce texture and shadow quality. You should be able to play Escape From Tarkov with the texture quality set to medium or high, but you will want to reduce the shadows quality to low, especially if you are worried about your FPS rate.

Settings for things like anti-aliasing really depend on your individual graphics card. If your computer is struggling to keep up, turn off anti-aliasing or reduce it as much as possible to give it a bit of an easier time.
