How to turn on Fortnite’s Performance Mode & increase framerate on PC

Fortnite’s Performance Mode gives players the ability to increase the framerate on PC in exchange for some lower-quality textures. Heres how you can turn it on for yourself and take advantage of the smoother gameplay.

Dexerto says “Fortnite’s Performance Mode has been around for a little bit now and it’s been swarming the community. Players who enable it will have their textures turned down to more poor quality ones but they’re are awarded with a much higher framerate, as the game doesn’t have to process any high-quality assets.If you’re new or you’re confused why some videos seem to be running at a better frame-rate, you may be wondering how to turn it on for yourself. Luckily, it’s pretty simple if you know where to look.”

Fortnite Performance Mode settings

The setting itself can be used on both high-end rigs, as well as low specs but the results will turn out the same either way. Regardless of what PC you run it on, the result will be a higher framerate.

To find the Performance mode option, you will need to find it in your settings but it shouldn’t take long.

  1. Open the Settings menu
  2. On the Video tab, scroll down until you find Rendering Mode in the Advanced Graphics section
  3. Select “Performance Mode (Alpha)”
  4. Apply/save your changes
  5. Restart your game
  6. Enjoy your faster framerate

Its also good to know that these setting will not save in Save the World so if you are a Save the World fan these settings will not work.

“That being said, the setting on PC is curiously labeled as “Alpha”, meaning the full version has yet to release. Once it does, we could see a similar feature on console but that’s pure speculation.”

Where to construct a Wooden Hatchery in Fortnite Season 7

Dexerto says “While most of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7’s weekly challenges have so far revolved around alien invaders, Week 7’s Legendary quests are a little more obscure, with players needing to find Records and collect Parenting Books from various locations. Another strange quest asks players to construct a Wooden Hatchery, which is used to hold eggs. Whether this is meant for the chickens that run wild around the Island or the recent Alien Parasite invaders, we’ll have to wait and see. We doubt players are going to spend too much time debating the purpose of this quest, though, so let’s get straight to the
