How to Increase FPS on DOTA 2

DOTA 2 is a great game, but choppy visuals from poor frame rates can blemish the experience. Fortunately, we have just the trick to give your FPS (frames per second) the boost they need for smooth gameplay.

How To Increase Frames Per Second On DOTA 2

Raising your FPS is a sure way to make DOTA 2 run smoother than ever and give you pleasing and seamless visuals during gameplay.

Here are some tips on how to increase your FPS and optimize your driver updates so that you won’t have to tinker with your frames per second again.

Checking System Performance

When experiencing lagging visuals, the first thing you should do is to check your system performance.

Run the performance details against DOTA 2’s recommended system requirements. Also, be sure to check the game files and make sure they are all accounted for and uncorrupted.

After seeing your current FPS level, you can start making improvements and keep checking it as the level goes up.

While you can certainly perform device driver updates manually, it is not particularly advisable. Manual updates are:

  • Tedious
  • Frustrating
  • Wasteful

The time involved in manually updating all of your device drivers can be enough to push someone over the edge when they have to keep track of multiple drivers and keep them all updated.

The time required to do this is also a factor that makes it impractical to do the updates manually. In today’s busy world you have much more important things to do.

For many, work days are getting longer which leaves even less time to do the things you enjoy like playing DOTA 2 and other video games that would require the same device driver updates to keep running smoothly without choppy gameplay or experiencing crashes.

Lower Your Settings

Even if you have an excellent computer, lowering your graphics settings can maintain a high framerate, even amidst plenty of spells and projectiles being displayed on your screen.

The Importance of Having a High FPS Level

The importance of having a high FPS level goes beyond fixing some fluidity issues in DOTA 2. The number of problems that can occur from having a low FPS level can drive a gamer mad.

DOTA 2 is, of course, not the only game affected by low FPS levels. Almost any other video game is going to be tough to play when you have a low FPS.
