Remnant 2 – Settings / Recommended Specs

Settings I came up with, if your PC matches the recommended specs, resulting in 60@1080 FPS 90 – 95% of the times.

My Outdated Hardware

  • CPU – I7 8700k
  • GPU – Nvidia 1080 GTX – 8GB
  • RAM – 16GB GSkill
  • SSD – 1TB Samsung Evo

All the settings and configuration I recommend, after tinkering around for quiet some hours, relay on my hardware which kind of matches the recommendations for Remenant 2, which in my opinon is more like the minimum requirements.

In-Game Settings

Prefered Setting

  • Display Mode: Fullscreen
  • Motion Blur: Off
  • VSync: On
  • Framerate: 60
  • Upscaler: Intel XeSS
  • Upscaler Quality: Quality
  • Shadow Quality: Low
  • Post Processing: Low
  • Foliage Quality: Low
  • Effects Quality: Medium
  • View Distance Quality: Medium
  • FOV Modifier: 1
  • Minimize Input Latency: On

Potential Optimization

  1. View Distance Quality: Medium -> Low
  2. Effects Quality: Medium -> Low
  3. Upscaler Quality: Quality -> Balanced

NVIDIA Setting

  • Anisotropic filtering: Off
  • Antialiasing – FXAA: Off
  • Antialiasing – Mode: Override any application settings
  • Antialiasing – Setting: x2
  • Max Frame Rate: 60 FPS
  • Texture filtering – Anisotropic sample opti..: Off
  • Texture filtering – Negative LOD bias: Allow
  • Triple buffering: On
  • Verticle sync: On

I figured out, matching the in-game FPS limiter together with the NVIDIA Settings, reduced the overall load on my GPU my a lot. Otherwise if on of them was high than the other my GPU in terms of heat went up by more than 10 °C.

Windows 10

I don’t know it it makes any differences at all, but I did the following:

  • Steam -> steamapps -> common -> Remnant2 -> Remnant2 – Binaries -> Win64
  • Right-click Remnant2-Win64-Shipping.exe
  • Properties -> Compatibility -> Disable Fullscreen Optimization: checked


With this settings my CPU and GPU stay between 60 – 70 °C. In combat I have either no or very little drops in FPS.

I tried everything with setting my monitor to 100 FPS and hence the in-game and NVIDIA setting for FPS to 50. This way the game performs even better but 50 FPS is not really what you want if you may get 90 – 95% of the times 60 FPS.

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
