A guide to changing blur, sharpness and angle of view in Fallout 76

On November 13 in the evening, the open launch of Fallout 76 took place, which delighted a lot of fans. There is also a fly in the ointment in the ointment – there are some mandatory changes in the PC version of the game. Owners of the PC version of Fallout 76 cannot influence the basic things: the level of blur, camera angle, depth of field and mouse acceleration. The listed points bring some discomfort. The good thing is that the Criterion Engine is flexible and can be easily adjusted. With the help of a number of parameters set in the ini-files, it is possible to create conditions suitable for a comfortable game.

How do I change the graphics settings in Fallout 76?

To make adjustments to the ini files, you need to find the Fallout76prefs.ini file in the game directory. You can find it in / Documents / My Games / Fallout 76. It is recommended to pre-copy the file before making any adjustments, just in case.

Step-by-step algorithm of actions:

  1. Change the name of the found file in Fallout76Custom.ini.
  2. Right-click on the file, hover over “Open With” and select “Notepad”.
  3. Delete the entire contents of the file.
  4. Unsharpening can be accomplished by adding the following lines to the file:


fDOFBlendRatio = 0

fDOFMinFocalCoefDist = 999999

fDOFMaxFocalCoefDist = 99999999

fDOFDynamicFarRange = 99999999

fDOFCenterWeightInt = 0

fDOFFarDistance = 99999999


bDoDepthOfField = 0

bDoRadialBlur = 0

iRadialBlurLevel = 0

bMBEnable = 0

bLensFlare = 0

bScreenSpaceBokeh = 0

bDynamicDepthOfField = 0

  1. To change the viewing angle, add 2 lines to the file:

fDefault1stPersonFOV = 90.00

fDefaultWorldFOV = 90.00

  1. To enable anti-aliasing, insert sAntiAliasing = FXAA
  2. To disable mouse cursor acceleration, add the parameter to the configuration file:


bMouseAcceleration = 0

  1. Disabling the rendering of grass to increase fps in the game can be done using the lines:


iMinGrassSize = 1

bAllowCreateGrass = 0

  1. To set the correct mouse handling on screens with any aspect ratio, add to the file:


fMouseHeadingXScale = .021

fMouseHeadingYScale = X, where instead of X you need to specify the aspect ratio of the screen according to the following parameters:

  • for 16: 9 –.03738;
  • for 21: 9 – .042
  • for 4: 3 – .028
  • for 6:10 – .0336

A special utility has already appeared from one of the moderators, which allows you to change the basic graphics parameters. Its main advantage is that all actions do not have to be performed manually, the utility has a graphical interface. You can download a small Configuration Tool utility by link
