Best monitor settings for Fortnite

Fortnite’s in-game settings offer customization options ranging from adjusting the game’s texture quality to changing its color scheme. These settings allow players to find the perfect mix that will enable them to spot enemies better while ensuring stable frames-per-second (FPS) and satisfying visual clarity.

Taking advantage of most in-game settings requires powerful hardware, but it would certainly be impossible to have the upper hand in a build fight without a decent monitor.

Load into a lobby and try out different brightness settings to identify what gives you the best advantage. 

Having a higher than average brightness level effectively makes it easier to spot enemies and loot. Keep in mind that your room’s lighting also plays an important role here, and excessive monitor brightness can also cause eye-strain…
