How to update graphics drivers

Fortnite Bloodsport Skin

To get the optimal performance from your system and make sure Fortnite runs as smoothly as possible, you need to make sure your graphics drivers are up-to-date.

Here’s how to update your graphics drivers on NVIDIA and AMD GPUs.

How to update NVIDIA graphics driver

If you have an NVIDIA graphics card, the GeForce experience app will handle this for you.

  1. Download GeForce experience through NVIDIA.com
  2. Open GeForce experience
  3. Select the ‘Drivers’ tab
  4. Click ‘check for updates’ in the upper right corner
  5. If an update is available, follow the steps

How to update AMD graphics driver

If you have an AMD GPU, you can use the Radeon Settings to update your drivers.

  1. Right-click on your desktop
  2. Select AMD Radeon Settings
  3. Click on the Home icon
  4. Click ‘New Updates’ on the bottom left
  5. Select ‘check for update’
  6. If an update is available, follow the steps

How to use NVIDIA DLSS in Fortnite Season 7

What is NVIDIA DLSS?

NIVIDA DLSS (or Deep Learning Super Sampling) is a clever technology that allows players with an NVIDIA RTX Series graphics card to run Fortnite at high resolution while still maintaining a solid frame rate.

DLSS sets your game to a lower resolution, giving a higher frame rate, but uses the technology to give the appearance of high resolution. It perfectly combines visuals and performance.

How to turn on NVIDIA DLSS in Fortnite

You can find the DLSS settings in the Advanced Graphics section of the Video tab, right at the very bottom.

From here, you can set DLSS as either Performance, Balanced, or Quality. You’d only need Performance if playing at 4K, otherwise Balanced or Quality would suit a 1440p resolution.

Best Fortnite graphics settings for low-end hardware

Fortnite Season 7 mothership

On a low-end system, you want to shoot for 60 FPS. This will give you smooth and stable performance, but you can take it higher by changing certain settings.

We’ve picked out the settings that will have the biggest impact on Fortnite’s performance, and given you the optimal options to select for high FPS.

Display

  • Window Mode: Fullscreen
  • Resolution: e.g 1920 x 1080 (it should match your monitor’s native display resolution)
  • Frame Rate Limit: Unlimited

Graphics Quality

  • 3D Resolution: 100%
  • View Distance: Epic
  • Shadows: Off
  • Anti-Aliasing: Off
  • Textures: Low
  • Effects: Low
  • Post-processing: Low

The only setting you want to have on High or Epic is View Distance. Seeing players, builds, and loot in the distance is vital and worth losing a few frames for.

If your PC is struggling with View Distance set to Epic, experiment with lowering it.

Advanced Graphics

  • V-Sync: Off
  • Motion Blur: Off
  • Rendering Mode: DIRECTX11
  • Nvidia Reflex Low Latency: On + Boost
  • Ray Tracing: Off

Ray Tracing can be found at the very bottom of the Settings tab, but you want to have it all turned off. It will make your game look great, but will absolutely tank your performance.

Best Fortnite graphics settings for high-end hardware

High-end systems can take advantage of a combination of stunning graphics and high FPS. We’ve got the best settings to take advantage of your high-end gaming rig.

Fortnite Season 7 spaceships

Display

  • Window Mode: Fullscreen
  • Resolution: e.g 2560 x 1440 (it should match your monitor’s native display resolution)
  • Frame Rate Limit: Shouldn’t be much higher than your monitor’s refresh rate as this can cause screen tearing

Graphics Quality

  • 3D Resolution: 100%
  • View Distance: Epic
  • Shadows: Off
  • Anti-Aliasing: Medium
  • Textures: Medium
  • Effects: Low
  • Post-processing: Medium

The only setting you want to have on Epic is View Distance. Seeing players, builds, and loot in the distance is vital and worth losing a few frames for. We’ve recommended medium settings for high-end hardware, but feel free to experiment if your system can handle it. 

Advanced Graphics

  • V-Sync: Off
  • Motion Blur: Off
  • Rendering Mode: DIRECTX11
  • Nvidia Reflex Low Latency: On + Boost
  • Ray Tracing: Off

Ray Tracing can be found at the very bottom of the Settings tab, but it’s unnecessary. Even if your rig can handle it, it’s not worth sacrificing frames for in multiplayer games like Fortnite.

How to use Fortnite Performance Mode

Fortnite performance mode

If you’re playing on an outdated PC or want to squeeze every last frame out of your system, perhaps performance mode is for you.

This offers “significant performance gains” by reducing the visual quality of the game. This will lighten the load on your GPU and CPU, making Fortnite run at much higher frames. Fortnite won’t look as pretty, but you’ll see a massive boost in FPS.

To set Fortnite to Performance Mode:

  1. Open settings in Fortnite
  2. Scroll down to ‘Rendering Mode’
  3. Select Performance (Alpha)
  4. Restart Fortnite

Try out these settings on Fortnite Battle Royale for PC, and you will see a marked improvement in the game’s performance.

When does Fortnite’s Green Goblin skin release? Leaks & rumors

A Green Goblin skin is seemingly on its way to Fortnite, and here’s everything we know about it, including the possible release date.

Green Goblin in Fortnite

Epic Games are reportedly bringing Spider-Man villain Green Goblin to Fortnite, and here’s everything we know about this crossover, including all leaks and rumors.

Fortnite players have been treated to a wide variety of crossovers over the seasons. Epic Games have added fictional characters like Naruto, as well as popular real-life figures like The Rock.

We’ve also seen the arrival of Marvel characters like Spider-Man, Venom, and Carnage. Now, some new leaks have revealed that Fortnite will be adding the classic Marvel villain Green Goblin.

Is Green Goblin confirmed for Fortnite?

Spider-Man skin in Fortnite Chapter 3

According to notable Fortnite data miners ‘HYPEX’ and ‘ralisdumb’ the classic Spider-Man villain will be flying into Fortnite as part of a new Marvel crossover. Players will unlock him as a new outfit.

Some leaks from ‘GMatrixGames’ have revealed the complete set of Green Goblin cosmetics that will be coming to Fortnite. These will presumably be part of a single bundle in the Item Store.

Here are all the leaked Green Goblin cosmetics:

  • Green Goblin outfit
  • Pumpkin Bomb Back Bling
  • Arm The Pumpkin emote
  • Goblin Glider
  • Attack Of The Goblin loading screen
  • Pumpkin Pickaxe

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and this information has yet to be verified by Epic Games. So, take this with a grain of salt until the developers officially confirm Goblin’s arrival.

This classic villain is Spidey’s arch-nemesis and has appeared in multiple films, including the recent Spider-Man: No Way Home. So, it makes sense that Epic Games might add him after his recent surge in popularity.

How to get the Green Goblin skin in Fortnite

Leaks have revealed that the Green Goblin outfit will be available for purchase in the Fortnite Item Shop. While we don’t know the exact cost, you’ll most likely have to spend around 1,500 V-Bucks.

At the time of writing, no release date has been confirmed for the Green Goblin skin in Fortnite. According to HYPEX, it will most likely arrive in the game at some point during the next two weeks.

We’ll keep checking for any more developments regarding the arrival of Green Goblin in Fortnite Chapter 3. As soon as we get some more information, we’ll be sure to update this article.

Klomberry in Fortnite

Klombo dinosaurs are now roaming around Fortnite Island and you can feed them a new consumable item called Klomberries. Here’s how you can find these in the game.

Fortnite’s 19.10 update added the Klombo dinosaurs that were teased in the Season 1 promo. These adorable creatures can now be found roaming around the Island, and you can interact with them.

If you come across a Klombo dinosaur then you can feed it a new consumable item known as Klomberries. You’ll need to find these in order to complete one of the Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 Quests.

Here’s how you can find Klomberries in Fortnite.

Klomberries locations in Fortnite

Klomberries locations on Fortnite map

Klomberries can be found in bushes near Klombos around Fortnite Island. The two locations where Klombos and Klomberries often spawn are near the Daily Bugle and the Tilted Towers POI.

You can land near any one of these spots and you’ll spot Klombos roaming around the area. Once you come across one of these bushes, simply approach it and use the interact button to pick up the Klomberry.

Alternatively, you can also purchase Klomberries from the Haven NPC for 25 Gold Bars. If you don’t have that amount saved up already then you can check out our guide on how to earn Gold Bars in Fortnite.

How to throw a Klomberry in Fortnite

Once you’ve added a Klomberry to your inventory, you can feed it to a nearby Klombos or even eat it yourself for some health regeneration. If you’ve not been able to get one of these consumable items, then you can try searching in other areas.

If you’ve upset a Klombo, you can feed it one of these treats to calm it down, then keep giving them to these adorable creatures to gain a reward in the form of items it will spit onto the ground for you.

You can throw down the item near a Klombo by aiming and pressing the ‘shoot’ button like with a grenade. You need to be standing within 10 meters of the Klombo before throwing the Klomberry.
