GRAPHICS QUALITY

  • Quality Presets – Low (Since Fortnite is a heavily competitive game and I mostly play Online, I keep it low)
  • 3D Resolution – 100% (Clean graphics without much blur)
  • View Distance – Near (This is optional. I think near gives me a bit more performance)
  • Shadows – OFF ( I keep shadows off to put load off my system)
  • Anti-Aliasing – OFF ( If you are concerned with sharp textures, you can keep AA ON)
  • Textures – Low
  • Effects – Low
