All serious competitive players use the lowest video settings. This is done to improve frame rate and player visibility.
Here are some basic settings to get started with:
V-Sync Off - Caps your FPS at your display monitor refresh rate to prevent screen tearing, which for most is 60hz or 144hz. However this also increases input lag.
Motion Blur Off - Turn this off right away, it does nothing but bad. Blurs the outside of your scope when aimed in and also blurs your vision when looking around.
Distortion Off - It distorts your vision. not much more I can say.
Reflections Off - Kind of personal preference but can make things harder to see.
Field of View (FOV) 90 - This will let you see a wider image on the screen.
Some players change their aspect ratio from a 16:9 to a 4:3 stetched view. This makes characters look wider and therefore easier to see and shoot. However, the drawback is that everything moving on the horizontal/X-axis will feel faster such as mouse sensitivity and character movement. You will lose some field-of-view (FOV). A guide to change your aspect ratio is here. For a more in-depth guide on aspect ratios check this guide here.
WARNING: The following steps can corrupt your game files if done improperly. The Ironsight Wiki is not liable for any damage to your computer or game.
Ironsight currently allows players to make changes to their local ini file. This file changes game configurations such as key binds, video settings, mouse settings, etc. This also allows for even lower video settings that are not available to the game menu. You can set certain video variables to either "0" or "off"
The file name is called ironsight_local.ini which is located in your Ironsight installation directory.
1. Path: <Ironsight directory>/ini/ironsight_local.ini
2. Please make a copy of it before editing.
3. Under the Renderer section, change your variables to "off" or "0". Here is my set up:
4. At the very bottom under ResourceManager, set texture_quality=off as well.
