Fix the Lag and Fps drop problem in your game.

1. ScabilityGroup Resolution

    1. Go to Run and search for “%appdata%”. Then click ok.
    2. You will find yourself in a folder name “Roaming”. Now go back and “AppData” folder.
    3. Now go open folder name Local.
    4. Now go to folder Valorant>SAVED>Config> enter the folder with random alphanumeric name something like “25bbd723-95cf-52d0-91ce-239” then open Windows folder.
    5. There you will find GamerUserSettings.ini. Open it and find “sg.ResolutionQuality=100.000000”
    6. Change it to something between 45 to 60. This will make a noticeable difference in your game display quality. Lower the number to increase performance and increase the number if you want to increase graphics.

2. Gamebooster

  • Gamebooster is a software designed to make your game your game performance better no matter what game it is. There are various of gamebooster available to use but I would recommend using Razer Cortex because it has some powerful features and it is free to use.
  • Once you are done setting up your gamebooster you will find a significant difference in your gaming performance. It is definitely worth a try. This will help you to fix your fps drop and lag in Valorant.

3. Update your drivers

Make sure you have all your drivers of your pc updated especially graphics driver if you have any because most probably an outdated driver can also make issues.


4. Restart your PC

Rebooting your system helps CPU and/or GPU from being overloaded and can speed up. It will flush all the memories being used and clear up some space for the processors to cope up with the best possible performance.

There is a common practice for most laptop users. We just close the lid and it will by default keep your system at sleep and that means your system is still running but at a slower pace to save your files. So when you open the lid you can access your files faster. This is also common with some desktop users to save time.

5. Clean Boot your system

Performing a Clean Boot is an important step to halt all unnecessary resources that eat your system performance.


Following all the steps for people who have tried to fix their Lag and fps drop in Valorant and didn’t work and this should work like charm.
