Bookmark this page if you’re interested in the best settings for Crucible. We’ll benchmark all the settings, look for potential FPS tweaks and for competitive advantages on specific settings.
Crucible Graphic Settings
Crucible’s Display Settings
Self-explaining – the resolution the game will render in. Crucible unfortunately does not offer a render resolution which changes the resolution independently from the UI, which means if you have to go lower in resolution for FPS reasons, you will also have a slightly blurry UI.
If you own a rather lower end system, you might want to start going lower to at least 1600×900 in Crucible already.
Amazon’s Crucible supports three classic display modes: Windowed, Borderless Windowed and Exclusive Fullscreen. For minimum input lag and maximum performance you’ll want to choose Exclusive Fullscreen in Crucible.
You don’t want to use V-Sync, because it introduces additional input lag. If your monitor and GPU support FreeSync (AMD) or G-Sync (Nvidia) you should use those frame-sync technologies. Just don’t use V-Sync.
Frame Rate Limit in Crucible
The frame rate limit in Crucible is kind of disappointing, because it only supports 30, 60 and unlimited FPS. Amazon really should add at least a 144 and 240 hz option or as an alternative, just a custom input!
Depends a bit on your monitor, but you usually want to go at least slightly higher on the Brightness. You should try values between 60 and 90.
If you use our soon to be released High FPS Config for Crucible, you want to use a higher value!
Similar to the brightness, you probably want to go slightly higher on the contrast option in Crucible.
More soon, including a custom config for an additional FPS boost in Crucible.
About this Guide
Crucible is using the Lumberyard Engine, which is Amazon’s game engine based on CryEngine. This makes it interesting, because it’s the first full game getting released using Lumberyard Engine and it will take us some time go find the best Crucible settings.
Crucible’s system requirements seem pretty low, but keep in mind those are the official system requirements and might be for pretty uncompetitive 60 or even 30 FPS gameplay. Our goal as always to reach at least somewhat stable 100+ FPS on low-end gaming PCs and stable 144+ FPS on everything above of that, like for every shooter.
