With the Graphics Settings that I have suggested, you can easily maintain a stable 50-60 FPS in Remnant 2, even with a mid-range Gaming PC.
If you talk about the performance of Remnant 2, it is safe to say that the game is not well-optimized at all. I tested it on my RTX 3060Ti and the RTX 4070 Ti Graphics Card. Although I didn’t try the game on lower-end GPUs like the GTX 1050Ti, I did test it out on an older high-end GPU, the RTX 2060, and the game ran smoothly. But on the lower-end GPUs this game runs terrible!
So if you are getting Low FPS or Stuttering issues in Remnant 2, don’t worry. It is not you. The devs have actually acknowledged the issues. Take a look:
We’ve heard from a few folks about the game’s overall performance. We’re definitely going to roll out performance updates after the game’s launch. But for the sake of transparency, we designed the game with upscaling in mind (DLSS/FSR/XeSS). So, if you leave the Upscaling settings as they are (you can hit ‘reset defaults’ to get them back to normal), you should have the smoothest gameplay.
You’re free to tweak other settings for better performance – changes to Shadow Settings will make the biggest difference besides Upscaling.
Still having trouble with the game’s performance even after using our recommended settings? Just let us know. We’re here to help sort out any issues you’re facing.
So in this article, I have listed down the best Graphics Settings that I am currently using for Remnant 2 and will also state the reason for choosing those options so that you can achieve the best performance if you are using them for your mid-range graphics cards.
Remnant 2 Best Graphics Settings to Fix Low FPS and Stuttering
- Display Mode: Fullscreen (Always keep Full Screen Exclusive to prevent performance loss.)
- Resolution: 2560×1440 (Every setting mentioned here has been recommended with 1440p in mind. You will get more FPS on 1080p.)
- Motion Blur: Off (In a game like Remnant 2, where you have to track every single move of your enemies, Motion Blur can actually get you eliminated easily.)
- Vsync: Off (I would have turned this on if I was getting constant stuttering. But that didn’t happen. So enabling this setting and handicapping the framerate doesn’t make sense.)
- Framerate: 60 FPS (Lock it at 60 FPS to get reduced Stuttering.)
- Upscaler: NVIDIA DLSS/AMD FSR (DLSS is the best among all 3 options. It Gives a nice 20-25 FPS boost to performance. However, if you do not have DLSS then you can use AMD FSR.)
- Upscaler Quality: Balanced (Normally, I always go with “Quality” when I am using upscaling. But “Balanced” is the way to go here.)
- Graphics Quality Preset: Custom (Always choose custom so that you can change the variables.)
- Shadow Quality: Medium (Shadows always take up huge chunks of performance, so keep it Medium for Remnant 2.)
- Post Processing: High (‘High’ actually gives more fps than ‘Medium,’ at times.)
- Foliage Quality: Medium (This basically controls the quality of the wildlife around the map. High-detailed plants and leaves should be the least of your concern.)
- Effects Quality: (The effects can sometimes get overwhelming.)
- View Distance Quality: Low (This was gobbling up a ton of performance. “Low” is the best choice here.)
- FOV Modifier: 1 (Perfectly balanced!)
- Minimize Input Latency: Off (This would have made more sense on a PvP game. But for PvE games you can keep this disabled.)

Remnant 2 PC Performance Analysis
Instead of writing about the performance, I actually went ahead and made a detailed video talking about the settings and performance of Remnant 2. Check it out:
My Final Thoughts
At this moment, I, unfortunately, cannot recommend Remnant 2 to everybody. This game runs horribly on Low-End GPUs. I tested the game on the GTX 1650, but decided not to make a video on it because the game was dropping below 30 FPS, at Low Settings, with NVIDIA DLSS. That, too, on 1920×1080. Imagine if I had tried it on 1440p.
If you have something like the GTX 1660 or something better, and you are on 1920×1080 resolution, then you should definitely give Remnant a try. Because this is an awesome game and is extremely fun if you have a friend to play coop with.
But, if you have something like the GTX 1050 TI, GTX 1650, or even the 1650 Super, I would recommend that you skip this, as I don’t think you will feel that it is worth it. Instead, I would recommend that you track the Reddit page of Remnant 2, keep track of the updates, and buy the game once you see people confirming that the performance issues are fixed. Then again, it is completely up to you.
If you have a decent gaming rig but still facing fps drops and stuttering, contact Gearbox Support and send them a ticket. I will be on my toes for the next few days, looking for guaranteed fixes. And as soon as I find something, I will immediately update this article. If you want, you can bookmark this page.
That’s all, folks!
