Anything with [IMPORTANT] has a big impact on FPS or visibility.


DISABLE V-SYNC – Even if you have a 60Hz Monitor, you should always be aiming for 120fps


  • Resolution Scale – Adjust this based on FPS. If you are getting enough FPS, you can turn this up to 1.1 or 1.2 for a sharper picture. Leave on 1 if not getting consistent frames or on Frontlines


  • Frame rate limit – 120 if on a 60Hz monitor, 143 on a 144hz monitor. Lower based on framerate (if you’re getting 54 FPS max, then make it 50, for example)


  • Field of View – 101.


  • Antia-aliasing – Off (especially if using higher than 1 screenscale) [IMPORTANT]


  • Texture quality – Adjust based on GPU VRAM size (6gb+ = Ultra) (4gb = High) etc.


  • Effects – Low


  • Shadow Quality – Low (Medium is fine, again I use for FPS)


  • Indirect Shadows – Off


  • View Distance – Low


  • Post-process – Low [IMPORTANT]


  • Foliage Density – Low [IMPORTANT]


  • Character Quality – Low


  • Character Cloth – No Cloth [IMPORTANT]

Removing Shadows

Make sure you have followed the above graphics settings;


  • Press windows key + R -> type %appdata% -> press OK


  • Exit /Roaming then into /AppData -> go to Local/Mordhau/Saved/Config/WindowsClient/ open GameUserSettings.ini


  • CNTRL + F and look for sg.ShadowQuality=1 change to sg.ShadowQuality=0


  • Save, go to .ini file -> right click -> properties -> set to “Read Only. “Using this method will not work with Mordhau open; make sure it is closed with the desired graphics settings already saved.




  • Under manage 3d settings -> program settings -> add mordhau, -> set virtually pre-rendered frames to 2 or 3 (higher = more FPS but also more input lag)


  • Power management mode – Prefer maximum performance


  • Texture Quality – Performance


  • V-Sync – Off


  • Anti-Aliasing – Off


  • Make sure drivers are up to dateONLY USE IF GETTING BAD FPS 


  • Open Console – type r.MipMapLodBias 4 (0-10, 10 being worst looking but best FPS)
