How to Show FPS in Overwatch 2

First-person shooter Overwatch 2 was created and released by Blizzard Entertainment. The game, a follow-up to the 2016 hero shooter Overwatch, introduces persistent cooperative modes while aiming for a shared environment for player-versus-player games.

As of October 9, 2022, Overwatch 2 is available in early access for free on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S and offers full cross-platform play.

Whether you’re facing some PC frame drops/freezes, or just maybe you are performance testing a game, you’ll want to see the Frames you’re currently dealing with. Nevertheless, it’s always good to know how many Frames your PC can provide with different settings.

The higher the Frame rate, the smoother the gameplay is. In Overwatch 2, there’s a way to enable the in-game FPS counter, in this article by Frondtech we’ll cover how you can enable the in-game FPS counter in the game Overwatch 2.

  6. Turn on Show Framerate from there.

Additionally, there are other stats there that you could display when in-game, we suggest for you look around, see what you need, and enable it all. Apart, from FPS you can show:

  • GPU Temperature
  • VRAM Usage
  • Network Latency
  • Network Interpolation Delay

Enabling all the options you’ve chosen will display the stats on the top left. I personally have FPS and Network Latency enabled. It just helps to be in touch with your PC’s and Internet’s performance.

The Network Latency allows me to check my Ping in Overwatch 2 matches and is extremely useful. That way I get an idea, of which match I should tryhard in, and which match I should let go of.

If you’re in a game, you could just have a glance at the top left of your screen and get the information you’re looking for. That’ll help you determine your PC’s performance in terms of FPS or even help you know if there are any ping spikes/stability issues that you’re facing.

And that’s everything there was to know about how you can enable the FPS counter in Overwatch 2.
