The Cycle: Frontier isn’t just any first-person shooter. It’s a first-person shooter with competitive elements for a sweaty massive multiplayer environment.
Therefore, your frames per second (FPS) will be important. Higher FPS gives a lot of advantages to jerk shooters, especially against players losing frames during shootouts.
The following guide will attempt to modify your system settings to increase your FPS in The Cycle: Frontier.
Best setting for Max FPS in Cycle: Frontier
Various PC and game settings can be changed to increase the FPS of your game.
Low latency mode
Before starting the game, the best option to increase the total FPS of the game requires changing the computer settings. You can access your Nvidia control panel or your AMD software.
Here, go to the Settings tab and set the low latency mode to High or Ultra in the Nvidia control panel, then enable this mode in the AMD software. These will allow your GPU to reduce display latency and increase FPS.
High computer performance
Be sure to set your PC to High Performance before you begin to get the best performance.
Optimize your power setting for Windows 10. To do this, right-click the battery symbol in the notification bar and select Power Options. On desktop computers, you can open the power settings menu from Control Panel -> Power Options. Now click on “Show additional plans” and activate a high performance plan.
With those PC settings now set for the best FPS output, let’s now look at the game settings for increasing FPS.
This option determines the resolution at which The Cycle: Frontier will be rendered. Select a value between 85 and 100, depending on your GPU, to avoid getting a blurry view and get the best FPS output to go along with it.
Turn off your V-Sync. This will allow your game to render as much FPS as possible, regardless of your monitor’s refresh rate. If your device is having issues with V-Sync disabled, be sure to set V-Sync to match your monitor’s refresh rate.
DLSS is an option only for those who own the RTX 20 or RTX 30 series. If you are one of those who own an RTX 20 or 30 series GPU, be sure to set your DLSS to Quality mode to get the best exit.
Set your Anti-Aliasing to medium so as not to compromise the quality of your image as well as the FPS. Lower it if you are struggling with FPS or don’t mind the slightly lower image quality.
Quality of shadows and textures
Both options improve the image quality and overall aesthetics of the game and make it more enjoyable to watch. Both settings, although normally kept high, achieve a perfect balance between image quality and FPS at a medium setting. For The Cycle: Frontier, the high setting cannot justify the drop in FPS.
The drawing distance determines the distance at which an object can be rendered. For The Cycle: Frontier, we recommend this setting at Epic unless it strains your FOS too much. This setting will allow you to see enemies at a much greater distance, allowing for better engagements.
The setting is responsible for improving the visual quality of the game. This can also be kept on medium for optimal performance and the high setting cannot justify the drop in FPS.
Visual effects quality
This affects the quality of visual effects, such as the detail of various structures and elements. It is best to keep the setting on Low as it improves overall performance and increases your FPS.
This blurs the rest of the environment when your character is sprinting or moving quickly through the game. For a game like The Cycle: Frontier, this is the worst possible setting because it’s harder to see things when you’re moving. The setting is also very taxing on your performance, so we recommend that you don’t turn it off.
