Battlefield V PC Player's Performance Guide

Prepare your best rig and reap the benefits of Battlefield on PC.

When it comes to PC gaming, the Battlefield™ series has always been about pushing the boundaries to give players as many options as needed to tune the graphics and performance experience to their liking. DICE will continue this tradition with the release of Battlefield™ V, showcasing the high-end gaming fidelity and performance at launch with continuing support.

Today, we’ll tell PC players just how far they can push their rig when playing Battlefield V. Whether you’ve built the dream desktop and want to run multiplayer on a 4K display or use an optimized mid-range machine to tackle single-player at a smooth frame rate – there are enough feature options for everyone.

Display Options

The large-scale battles of Battlefield V can be played at nearly any resolution. If you’ve got the gear to run 4K or maintain high frame rates during wild firefights, we’re not about to stop you.

  • 4K Resolution – We’re delivering support for nearly any screen resolution, including true 4K for graphics cards and monitors that can support it.
  • Field of Vision – One monitor or two, ultra-wide or regular, we have a FOV and aspect ratio to fit whatever monitor is used to play your games.
  • Uncapped Frame rates – With the right machine, this can result in shorter input delays and better performance at frame rates beyond 60 fps. Maximum frame rates are capped at 200 fps.
  • Scalable UI – The on-screen User Interface can be adjusted, making it bigger or smaller in view, depending on personal preference and available performance and/or memory.

Performance, Graphics, and Other Features

Part of the pleasure of a modest or high-end PC build is getting it to run just the way you like it. Battlefield V is built for tuning to yield optimal performance.

  • High-end graphic settings – Included support for the highest-end graphical and performance settings across numerous categories includes adjustable draw distance, texture quality, shadow quality, and more to give PC players the freedom to fine tune fidelity or performance.
  • DirectX Raytracing (DXR) – DXR enables realistic real-time ray traced reflections in Battlefield V for players with NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics cards including the GeForce RTX 2070, 2080, and 2080 Ti. An early release of DXR will be available in an upcoming patch, near the Battlefield V Deluxe Edition release window. EA, DICE, and NVIDIA will also continue to optimize this implementation and deliver regular updates after its release.
  • NVIDIA Ansel – Ansel is a photo mode that pushes the limitations of traditional screen capture and is integrated for use in the single-player War Stories. Ansel allows PC players to create custom, cinematic screenshots with free camera, custom filters, and more. Download GeForce Experience to access NVIDIA Ansel, or share your photos on Shot with GeForce.
  • NVIDIA Highlights – Battlefield V’s dynamic, massive multiplayer battles always create memorable one-of-a-kind moments and with Highlights, those moments will automatically be recorded and saved.  Once you’ve finished playing, recorded Highlights can be reviewed in-game, and your favorites quickly shared on social with the world.
  • Colorblind Mode – Full customization of color options for those affected by colorblindness.

More Control

The right mouse and keyboard settings can mean the difference between a flick shot or a whiffed shot. Play with confidence and comfort using Battlefield V’s deep key mapping options and various adjustable game settings.

  • Raw mouse support – Enabling raw mouse input allows 1-to-1 movement between your hand and the in-game mouse movement. There is no delay, smoothing, or any acceleration between hand movement and the screen movement.
  • In-game customization – Massive amounts of customization options gives players greater flexibility in adjusting gameplay settings according to their preferred playstyle. Examples include:
    • Show or disable HUD
    • Adjustable crosshair visibility
    • Parachute auto-deploy option
    • Soldier automatic peek-over and leaning
    • Hint system to help players navigate
  • Input remapping – Complete keyboard key mapping options are in place to suit a variety of player-specific preferences.
  • Logitech LEDLogitech G is the official Battlefield V PC gaming gear partner. Logitech's LIGHTSYNC RGB technology adds lighting cues and customization for their keyboards, mice, and headphones when using Logitech Gaming Software or Logitech G HUB.

PC-Specific Spectator Mode Options

  • Spectator mode exists across all platforms, however there are PC-specific features that users can take advantage of.
  • The mouse scroll wheel can be used for improved camera zoom.
  • Users can adjust the mouse sensitivity for all spectator cameras.
  • Improved keyboard input: After selecting a specific player in a squad, their squad mates will have a dedicated key bind to quickly jump between the members of the squad.
  • Users can save resolution scale specifically for Spectator Mode and separate from the base game video options.
  • More video options:
    • High level of detail
    • Render of distant objects
    • Scalable Resolution
  • Screenshotting ability:
    • Pressing the dedicated screenshot input/key bind will take a screenshot
