How to see the real-time FPS of Fortnite battle royale game on PC & Android

Fortnite is undoubtedly one of the most popular titles when the discussion is limited to battle royale games. The animated 3D graphics with exciting elements make it different from most other battle royale games that are also popular among a domain of gamers. The ability to destroy several elements in the world, and build architecture from scratch adds more challenge to the overall gameplay, which is liked by several gamers. Fortnite is available both for PC, as well as selected handsets, and there are multiple game modes to suit your current mood. Just like most other games, there are a lot of settings that can be changed in Fortnite, to streamline the gameplay experience.

There are several graphics settings that you can change, to make the gameplay suitable for your system, and you can also change the controller and audio settings. All these settings can be configured on all the games that you can find online, however, there is one extra setting within Fortnite to help you understand, whether your system can handle Fortnite properly or not. At the end of the day, the smoothness of the gameplay is the final thing that you need. The FPS or Frames Per Second is a quantitative representation of how smooth the gameplay is, and to see the live FPS, you mostly need a third-party program. However, if you are playing Fortnite, there is an internal setting that will show you live FPS. I will discuss how you can enable the live FPS display on Fortnite.

So, without any further delay, let’s get started with, how you can see the live gameplay FPS on Fortnite.

With the FPS counter, you can have an idea of how the game is performing on your device, and if you want better performance, you can lower the resolution and the textures to make the gameplay experience smoother, and eventually increase the FPS. You can keep the FPS counter open all the time if you want to understand, whether frames are getting dropped in certain conditions. The up arrow is the maximum recorded FPS and the arrow pointing down is the minimum FPS recorded in the current session.
