Improve performance in Overwatch

If you want that Overwatch is better, you will have to take into account some aspects, but above all lower the graphics quality of the game.

Lower graphics quality

Undoubtedly, the first thing you should do for improve performance in Overwatch is to lower the graphics quality. This may seem like a complicated task, but it certainly isn't. Despite the multiple graphics settings, there are some criteria you can take into consideration.



First of all, please note that the display mode is set to "Screen whole ". Full screen mode is generally more efficient in terms of performance. The vertical sync option can help you get smoother performance, but with a slight input lag (delay between what you do and what is displayed on the screen).

The best thing to do if you don't want to get too complicated with Overwatch settings is to go to the "Graphics Quality" tab and select "Low". Undoubtedly, this quick setup can be very helpful in improving our performance.

Of course you can make configurations to your liking, the most advisable thing is to analyze the performance and draw your own conclusions. By evaluating the performance of the game, you can come to the conclusion whether it is possible to improve the graphics or opt for a better performance.

Reduce the resolution

The resolution section is also among the graphics options, being something you need to take into consideration. This is one of the options that the greater impact on performance, especially on simpler graphics cards.

It would be best to use your monitor's native resolution. Even so, if after having lowered the graphics quality you still have problems, you will have to make changes. Lowering the resolution is the last thing you want, but if your computer isn't up to par, you may need to.



There is a very useful tool that can help you check how your components perform with a game. We refer to MSI Afterburner which allows you to monitor the temperature and the use of FPS, CPU, GPU and RAM. Undoubtedly this will be useful to check if a component is not up to par, in which case it may be necessary to change it

Change some components

Changing a component of our computer is perhaps the last thing we want to achieve to improve performance. Unfortunately, if yours equipment is very old, of usually is the only resolution.

Fortunately, today it is possible to build an inexpensive gaming computer, which will undoubtedly allow you to play Overwatch correctly. It is something recommended so that you stop getting frustrated. Just collect a few months and make sure you buy something that allows you to play comfortably.

Enhance the sensitivity of Overwatch

Sensitivity is a determining factor for play Overwatch correctly. Not having adequate sensitivity can make us play worse. For the reasons mentioned above, it is undoubtedly something you should consider.


Even so, it is often difficult for newbies to find the right sensitivity, but with a few tips it will be easier.

First of all, you need to know that there is no perfect sensitivity and that it's about adaptation. For this reason, little by little, you are looking for sensitivities that go better with you, although surely the most advisable thing is to get used to low sensitivities, which is the same principle as when aiming in Fortnite and other similar games.

Certainly as a starting point we recommend looking at the sensitivity settings of Overwatch pros. Luckily we have Overwatch's professional Prosetting site, a space where you can see the major players of the game and their settings.


Just search for your favorite player and look at the settings, there is sensitivity too. Test the sensitivity of an expert and see if you fit. Remember, it's all one a matter of practice and adaptation.
