Setting up Enlisted graphics for a weak PC

 How to increase FPS in a new online shooter in a WW2 setting


The new large-scale shooter Enlisted pleased with a juicy photorealistic picture and relatively good optimization. For maximum quality at 1080p, a mid-range graphics card from five years ago is sufficient. But it also requires a relatively powerful quad-core processor. At the same time, even at low settings, the game looks quite good.


However, we have made a detailed guide for weaker PC owners to help improve the smoothness of the gameplay while maintaining the visual beauty.


What computer do you need for Enlisted (system requirements)

We studied independent tests of the game on various hardware and came to the conclusion that the official information is close to the truth, but only if you focus on a resolution of no higher than 1080p (1920x1080). Therefore, based on the tests we studied, we have added recommendations for playing at 1440p (2560x1440) and 4K (3840x2160) at high graphics settings.

IMPORTANT: The game requires 64-bit Windows and does not officially support 32-bit (x86) versions of operating systems.

Official minimum system requirements (720p @ 60 FPS):

  • Operating system: Windows 7/8/10 x64.
  • Processor: Intel Core i3.
  • Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 / AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series.
  • RAM: 8 gigabytes.

Official Recommended System Requirements (1080p @ 60 FPS):

  • Operating system: Windows 7/8/10 x64.
  • Processor: Intel Core i5.
  • Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 / AMD Radeon RX 480.
  • RAM: 8 gigabytes.

  • Processor: Intel Core i5-7400 / AMD Ryzen 5 2400.
  • Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 / AMD Radeon RX 580.
  • RAM: 16 gigabytes.

Enlisted Optimization Tips



There are no ready-made quality presets in the game. Therefore, further we will analyze each graphical option separately.

  • "Mode". As always, it is better to choose full-screen mode so that the system allows maximum resources for the game itself, without maintaining the desktop.
  • "Resolution time scale". Set it to 100% so that the picture is as clear as possible, in full resolution. And it's better to lower other settings.
  • "Temporary smoothing quality". On older video cards, it is better to lower it, and on more modern video cards, leave it at the maximum. In general, this is not a very "gluttonous" parameter. A decrease will not give a tangible increase, only "ladders" will appear everywhere.
  • "Vertical sync". In online games, especially in first person, it is best to turn off V-sync. It evens out the frame time, which makes the video sequence smooth, but there is an input lag - the mouse starts to obey much worse.
  • "Quality of textures". High quality textures should not be installed on video cards with memory below 4 gigabytes. Better to downgrade to medium or below to avoid friezes. They arise if the missing gigabytes are taken from the RAM (which is always slower than VRAM) or even from the hard disk (if there was not enough RAM either).
  • "Anisotropic filtering". It is unlikely that today there are video cards that do not "pull" the maximum quality of texture filtering. Bet 16X.
  • "Improved filtering textures." Additional processing, more modern than anisotropy. In fact, there will be no time to look at the difference during the battle. Therefore, it is best to turn it off on most systems.
  • "Shadow Quality". The levels in Enlisted have a huge number of objects, including small ones. They all cast shadows. This loads not only the processor, but also the video card. Fortunately, even low quality shadows look acceptable - reduce.
  • Effects Shadows. It is better to turn it off so that less FPS sags during shooting or explosions.
  • "The quality of global illumination." All lighting options are pretty heavy. Global illumination is basic, so it is advisable to leave it at at least medium quality.
  • "The quality of scattering in the atmosphere." Additional light from the sky. If you lower it to the minimum, then the picture will become somewhat flatter, but you don't pay attention to it during the game.
  • "The quality of diffused lighting." More natural light behavior indoors and in complex decorations. Better to leave at least medium quality.
  • Improved reflections. Responsible for the visual difference between matte and glossy surfaces. If turned off, metal objects will stop shining. On outdated video cards it can greatly help with smooth FPS.
  • "Water quality". In the Early Access version, bodies of water are rare - usually just puddles or streams. You can lower it to a minimum so that the number of frames does not sag near the water.
  • "The quality of the relief tessellation." Makes the earth more voluminous and natural. If you lower it, then it will become flatter, but in the heat of battle this is not so important - lower it to a minimum.
  • "Dynamic deformation of the landscape." Wheel marks and more natural projectile marks. It is better to turn it off so that the FPS does not drop to a playable level during massive shelling.
  • "High Resolution Visual Effects." In dynamics, the resolution of the special effects is still difficult to see (except perhaps the smoke). Better to turn it off.
  • "Raindrops on the screen". FPS when turned on almost does not sag, since the effect is quite simple and old. Include.
  • "Image quality on the scopes". On weak or old video cards, it is better to lower it to a minimum - rendering inside an optical sight is a very resource-intensive task
