Wonderlands Graphics Settings – Wonderlands is a fantasy prequel to the already famous title Borderlands while being a sequel to Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep, which was a Borderlands 2 Expansion released back in 2013. Packed with action and RPG elements, it is a first-person shooter game that features the classic borderlands feel but with a fresh new spin to it.
The world in Wonderlands is open-word and is quite huge. The locations are colourful and are filled with massive, majestic monuments. A couple of new features have made their way to Wonderlands, which will include a character creator, an RPG Styled Skill Tree, and a lot more.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is a pretty demanding and resource-hungry game. It is mainly because of all the particle effects, high-quality textures, character details and detailed shadows. Now the question is, how well does Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands game run on an average performing gaming PC. We were earlier facing issues with Wonderlands not launching and crashing at startup which we addressed here. It is a known fact that not everyone is sitting with a high-end gaming rig and the game is not the most optimized one that I have seen.
That is why I decided to make this graphics settings guide, catered towards the users who are experiencing problems like fps drops and stuttering in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands game. While chalking out the best settings, the video/image behind the Graphics settings box in the background will show the changes in real-time as you tweak the settings on the go. The Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands system requirements are here if you want to check this out first!
Wonderlands Graphics Settings Guide
- Graphics API: DirectX 12 (Direct X12 gave me better FPS than the DirectX 11)
- Display: LG QHD (This should display the name of your monitor)
- Display Mode: Full Screen Display (You lose out a lot of performance if you play in a windowed or a borderless windowed mode)
- Aspect Ratio: 16:9
- Resolution: 2560×1440 (If you have an FHD Monitor set to 1920×1080)
- Vertical Sync: Off
- Resolution Scale: 100% (I have kept mine at 100% as lowering the scale brings in blurriness to the image. Tone it down to 75% only if necessary)
- Limit Framerate: Unlimited (Keep it unlimited to get the maximum fps)
- Field of View: 100
- Graphics Quality: Medium
- Anti Aliasing: FXAA (Temporal makes the game look a bit blurry, and turning AA off makes the game look too jaggedy)
- Texture Streaming: Medium (Medium worked the best for me, but you can choose high if you want)
- Material Quality: Medium (Medium worked the best for me, but you can choose high if you want)
- Anisotropic Filtering: 16x
- Shadows: Low (always keep it at low for the best performance)
- Display Stats: All
- Draw Distance: Low (Keep Draw Distance at Lowz as higher draw distance impacts performance for older systems)
- Clutter: Low
- Terrain Detail: Medium (Keep the terrain medium to enjoy the rich environment of the game but don’t go higher, as it will impact performance)
- Foliage: Medium
- Volumetric Fog: Medium
- Screen Space Reflections: Medium
- Character Detail: High
- Ambient Occlusion: High
- Camera Motion Blur: Off
- Object Motion Blur: Off
- Fidelity FX Sharpening: On (Makes the game look more detailed)
Try out these settings and if it does not work out for you try lowering down the metrics more like Antialiasing, Terrain Detail, Volumetric Fog, Texture Streaming and check again. Continue tweaking those aspects until you get into a playable performance range (i.e. FPS 40-60).

Disable Nvidia Instant Replay or Windows Background Recording
I would suggest that you turn off features like Windows Background Recording and Nvidia Instant replay. The Xbox Game Bar and Game Mode should be disabled as well.
To turn off Nvidia Instant Replay:

- Click on the Instant Replay block

Select the correct GPU, if your system has 2 GPUs
You may also be running a computer with two video cards. Make sure the game is using your dedicated graphics card instead of the integrated one.
If you are using an Nvidia GPU, here is what you need to do:
- In Nvidia Control Panel
- Go to Manage 3D settings
- Select Global Settings
- Then under “Preferred graphics processor” select High-performance NVIDIA processor
