How To Increase FPS in Way of the Hunter

Disable Anti Aliasing which can’t be disabled in-game menu, but it can be in settings.jason file in “my documents” where hunter saves are.

Open it with the notepad app. Find a line with AA and change it from value 4 to 0. Boom, not too shabby, huh?

Check the System Requirements

The most common issue that occurs in most games is the technical specifications mismatch. You need to make sure that your gaming platform is compatible with the minimum requirements.

Here is the list of the minimum and recommended specifications for the Way of The Hunter game.

Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: 64bit OS – Windows 10
  • Processor: AMD Ryzen 3 3100 / Intel Core i3-8100
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: GeForce GTX 960 / Radeon R9 380

  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVidia GTX 2070 Super 8GB VRAM
  • DirectX: Version 11

Update your graphics card driver

Make sure to visit the official website of the company that makes your graphics card and downloads the most recent drivers. It sucks but it can do the trick. There are frequently optimized drivers created specifically for a given game.

If updating the most recent version of the driver does not resolve the issue, you can alternatively try installing an earlier version of the driver.

Don’t forget that installing the most recent version of DirectX, which can be accessed and downloaded from the official Microsoft website, are necessary for optimal game performance.

Switch to Auto Settings in Video

It’s another simple fix but worth trying out. Make sure to switch to auto settings in video mode by following the steps below.

  • Press the Esc button on your keyboard in the gameplay.
  • Now, go to the in-game Settings menu > Click on Video.
  • Select Auto Settings > Make sure to resume the gameplay to cross-check whether the frame drops or lags are still appearing or not.
  • If the in-game lag or frame drops are still there, select All and try lowering the video settings from the game menu.

Close Extra Background Applications

Simple, we know, but anything is worth trying. Installing updated video card drivers should be your first solution to this issue. This move can significantly increase game FPS.

Additionally, look at the Task Manager’s CPU and memory usage (accessed by pressing CTRL + SHIFT + ESCAPE). If you see that a process is using too many resources before the game even starts, either shut down the program or just delete it from Task Manager.

Disable Antivirus

If your game is still constantly crashing, there is a chance that the executable file for Way of The Hunter is being marked as a virus.

Not very likely but worth checking.

Switch Between Display Modes

You can switch between full-screen borderless and windowed bordered display modes, or vice versa, from the in-game settings menu to fix Way of The Hunter’s poor frame rate.

It will optimize the game files depending on the configuration and screen resolution of your PC. Simple, but has worked for some
