What Causes Low FPS On Content Warning?

Here’s what can degrade the FPS performance within Content Warning on PC:


  • An issue with the game lobby or connected players.
  • The “Max Framerate” feature is enabled and set low.
  • The graphic drivers of your PC’s GPU are outdated.
  • The graphic settings are too high for your computer.
  • Modded Content Warning files are causing problems.
  • There’s an issue with Content Warning’s game files.

This is what can potentially cause a significant reduction in Content Warning’s FPS performance. Keep reading further into the guide to explore expert solutions for the issue!

How to Fix the Content Warning Low FPS Issue?

Tip: Don’t forget to run Content Warning as administrator during each test launch!

1. Switch Up the In-Game Lobby

You should first determine whether the game itself causes the unusually low FPS, your PC, or the lobby you have entered. Some player servers are particularly more laggy and underperforming compared to others, due to overloading with mods or bad hosting.

So, exit the current Content Warning game you have accessed and head back to the lobby. You can either use the “JOIN RANDOM” button or enter a friends lobby to determine if the low FPS persists.

Note: You should keep away from random lobbies while testing Content Warning’s FPS performance!

2. Adjust Content Warning’s FPS Limiter

You may have accidentally reduced the “Max Framerate” limiter within the settings of Content Warning, preventing the game from performing properly. You must ensure Content Warning’s output FPS has not been limited prior to adjusting any of the other graphic settings of the game.


Here’s how to check if Content Warning’s FPS limiter is set to a low value:


  1. Navigate to the main menu of Content Warning on your PC.
  2. Access the “Settings” menu and click “Graphics” on the left.
  3. Go down and find the “Max Framerateslider downwards.
  4. Drag the slider towards the right to increase your FPS limit.
The image shows how to increase the in-game FPS limitation if you have the Content Warning low FPS issue.

The minimum framerate limit you can set within Content Warning is “30” and the highest is “480.” You should always adjust the framerate limiter according to your monitor’s refresh rate for optimal performance.

Noe: If your monitor has a 144Hz refresh rate, the game won’t make any visual difference after 144 FPS in-game!

3. Change Content Warning’s System Priority

While launched, you will be able to prioritize Content Warning’s process for your Windows to achieve better performance and increase the FPS. After specifying Content Warning as a priority process, your system will allow the CPU to work at a higher frequencies and provide it with more power while the game is launched.


Note: Ensure Content Warning is launched before specifying ait as a priority!


Here’s how to set Content Warning as a priority for Windows:


  1. Access the Task Manager on your Windows device (Ctrl + Shift + Esc).
  2. Then, from the left side go to the “Details” tab to reveal task/processes.
  3. Press “C” until Content Warning is highlighted within the task manager.
  4. Right-click on your game and hover over the “Set Priority” menu option.
  5. Set “High” from the new drop-down menu and close the task manager.

Alert: You have to set Content Warning as a priority after each launch!

4. Re-Adjust the Graphic Settings

The low Content Warning FPS could be a result of incorrectly configured in-game graphic settings.

Whether you’re on AMD, NVidia, or an Intel-powered GPU, you must always upload the latest version available for the graphic drivers. This is especially crucial for gaming, as the most recent video card updates often fix synchronization issues between the monitor’s refresh rate and the FPS of games.

5. Lower the PC’s Resource Occupation

If most of your PC’s memory or CPU resources are occupied by other programs or applications, Content Warning’s performance may reduce significantly in terms of FPS. So, the next step is to reduce the background utilization to increase Content Warning’s overall performance and FPS.


Follow these instructions to lower the resource occupation of your PC:


  1. Open the Task Manager on your PC (keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + Shift + Esc).
  2. Next, tap on the “CPU” header at the top part of the Task Manager prompt.
  3. Right-click on the most demanding process after Content Warning’s tile.
  4. Choose the “End Task” option from the drop-down menu of the process.
  5. Click on the “Memory” header on the right of “CPU” and repeat the steps.

While Content Warning is not RAM-demanding, it can be particularly overloading for your CPU if not managed properly. It is recommended to persistently track the performance of your CPU and RAM while gaming to avoid high utilization and potential PC overheating.

Tip: You may require an external service to track the CPU’s temperature such as HWInfo.

6. Update the System’s Graphic Drivers

Outdated GPU drivers are the primary reason why Content Warning is underperforming and produces low output FPS. The next step is to upload the latest graphic drivers available for your system and determine whether that will improve the performance of Content Warning on your PC.
