How To IMPROVE FPS On Console Fortnite! (PS4 + Xbox Fortnite – Raise FPS)


Hey what is going on guys, in this video today
we’re gonna be testing some theories on how to increase FPS on console Fortnite. And when I say increase, I hope you guys would
know what that actually means by now. If you’re on ps4/xbox no matter what you’re
not gonna get over 60 unfortunately, but a lot of the time it’s a struggle to even stay
at or very near 60, and that’s hopefully what these methods will be able to help you with. It’s gonna be difficult, but I’m gonna do
my best to test the different theories and try to get as conclusive of evidence as possible
about whether or not they actually do anything. So, without further ado, let’s get right into
this. Alright, so the first thing we’re gonna be
testing in this video is actually something that I saw on Twitter a few days ago. A guy named “ByzicXBL, who as you may be able
by that name is a console player, and based on the fact that he has over 10k in earnings,
he seems to be a very good console player. So he tweeted “I uninstalled every game besides
fortnite on my xbox and my frames do not go below 60 at all not even end game, thank me
later.” Now when I read this at first I was incredibly
skeptical, to say the least. I thought alright this guy is probably just
trolling for exposure and interactions so that’s that. But as I started reading the replies to the
tweet, I saw him re-assure people many different times that he was being serious, like literally
10+ different times over a 3 day span because people were still replying to the tweet. But even after seeing that I was still thinking
“ya know it’s possible that he could still just be trolling, and even if he isn’t maybe
he just got really lucky and the day he uninstalled all the game was just a random good day for
high FPS.” But then as I scrolled through the comments
I definitely did see a few that said “I don’t think this would work or I doubt this would
do anything, but I also found about 5 different people saying they tried the method and it
had some kind of positive impact on their Fortnite experience. Here’s a tweet from a guy saying “I deleted
all of my Games, I went to a creative and threw down castles until the map maxed out
to 100,000 storage. My FPS (While Looking at the Castles) Was
a solid 45-60 whereas before it would’ve been 20. In pubs im getting 59-75 fps ON A REGULAR
XBOX (6YRS OLD).” And don’t be thrown off by that 59-75 part,
sometimes the game will show you’re getting over 60 FPS so it’s totally possible this
guy did see 75, but that’s more of a visual glitch then anything. Here’s another example of someone saying “it
worked for me, thank you byzic!” And finally “Bruh i just installed cod & my
input delay got 10x worse, this tweet saved my tourny on Wednesday lol.” So at this point I thought “okay, maybe this
is actually worth testing.” Since I have an external hardrive on my xbox
this wouldn’t really work, so I enlisted the help of one of my friend. He has the Xbox One S, so not the most advanced
model which is the one X, but also not the oldest model. So the test we decided to do is similar to
what was mentioned in one of those tweets, and also was the method I used in the video
I made a few months ago about FPS. He created a world and threw down a ton of
structures all right next to each other until the world was pretty much at max memory. This basically puts a ton of stress on the
world and really hurts FPS, similar to what would happen in a super chaotic end game situation. I know it isn’t a perfect test by any means
trust me I understand that, but it’s the only way to make sure no other outside variables
impact the FPS here. So once that world was setup I had him do
the test 2 different times. In the first one, his xbox storage was roughly
97% full, so pretty much max capacity. Then I told him to do the same test again
after deleting all the games that he didn’t really play. And after doing that he was down to just over
32%. So not as low as possible but definitely a
big enough difference from 97% to where if this actually affected something, it should
show up in the results. So now I’m just gonna play both of the tests,
97% one first then the 32% one after, and pay attention to the FPS here on the screen. So what you saw there is definitely interesting. In the first clip with the 97% full hard drive,
I would say the FPS was somewhere around 30, it seemed to flicker a lot between about 15
and maybe 45, but I’d say it was mostly in the high 20s low 30s. Then in the 2nd clip after he deleted a cleared
up a bunch of space on his hard drive, it would more towards the high 30s and even up
towards 40, plus it seemed to be just a lot more consistent, much less random kinda jumps
and falls with the number of FPS like in the first clip. Now I don’t wanna jump to any kind of indisputable
conclusion here because like I alluded to earlier, it’s just really hard to test FPS
on a console. However, when you combine what you just saw
with some of the testimonials from other people earlier, there is some proof that clearing
space on your console does something positive to your Fortnite experience. So my recommendation to all you console players
would basically be this: If you’re on xbox or PS4 and have digital games you don’t really
play or a ton of apps on your console because those also take up space, it’s probably at
least worth a try deleting them, especially if your hard drive is anywhere near full. Worst case scenario you don’t really see a
difference, and then you can just re-download the games you uninstalled, no harm no foul. The next little method I wanna talk about
in this video is another one I first saw on Twitter, this time coming from 60fpswithadream,
the top earning console player who I made a whole video talking about. He responded to actually one of the tweets
that I showed earlier saying “want to get even better gameplay remove all ur friends
(on your Fortnite friends list of course)” and then he followed that up immediately after
by saying “that’s y I only have like 6 people added.” Not this is an interesting one because I’ve
actually heard a few people mention this before. And a story I’ve heard a few people say is
that a while back Ceeday had so many friends/pending friend requests that it made his game lag
and he literally had to make a new account because it was so bad. Now unfortunately, I tried to the same FPS
test to test this but I didn’t notice any change in FPS at all. What I did was log onto my main account on
xbox where I have a few hundred friends, made another full memory map, and loaded up the
world. Then I made a brand new account which would
obviously have no friends and did the same thing, but unlike with the first experiment,
I didn’t notice any difference on the 2 accounts. But to be fair, I don’t think having a ton
of friends would be something that hurts your FPS, it would probably just make your game
feel more laggy and have more microstutter, but that’s something that you can’t really
test. So my advice for this would basically be,
if you have a ton of friends it’s probably worth removing a lot of the ones you no longer
play with, but I doubt this would make a huge impact if you have anything under maybe 1-2
hundred. And the final thing I just wanna quickly re-visit
is the method I showed you guys maybe 6-7 months to make your FPS more consistent, which
is turning off replays. It even says in the game when you hover over
these settings “When on, replays are recorded and stored after each match, recording replays
can reduce performance and take up hard drive space.” So just to re-test this I decided to hop back
on my account, make another full memory world, and do the exact same test that you saw earlier. I’ll just play the footage in the background
now, but spoiler alert, I got pretty much the same results as I got back when I made
the video the first time. There was definitely a noticeable difference
between the FPS I was getting when recording replays was turned on vs. when it was turned
off. Again, I doubt this is something that makes
a huge difference in regular games, but unless you’re someone that needs replays for something
like VOD review which I totally understand, I’d recommend turning them off. So I hope you guys enjoyed this video and

  1. Who's been a HUGE fan of gronky before 2020??
    😍
    👇

    👇I'm gifting my next 79 loyal subs 🎁
                       Must have notïs🔔

  2. Gronky idk of you know about this, but my ps4 freezes like every 20-30 second idk if you know how to fix this😭
    Can you pin this to see if anyone can help me😭

  3. I dunno what problems you guys have with your consoles. My Xbox One S doesn't go lower than 58 fps and my storage is nearly full.

  4. Monitor help I’m stuck on 40 fps even though it’s a 60hz monitor and I have an all in one pc I have to buy a new pc which I cant.

  5. Why would I delete all the other games I actually payed for? Why can’t fortnite just provide some console updates and take off forced cross play I should be able to play against my own platform

  6. 60-65 on the one s, but sometimes during shotgun fights where im editing, my frames drop tp below 30 instantly, so im going to try these two methods and hop into a few games, thank you bro. ❤️

  7. Can you focus on some tips for Nintendo switch too please we exist too gronky I’m trynna be one of the few switch pros in the Fortnite community 💯💪🏽

  8. I must be lucky. My FPS is always around 60. Sometimes drops to 50 but is soon back up. I only bought a ps4 to play fortnite so no other games loaded and I have 2 friends only. Maybe this further proves the point.

  9. I think its because when the RAM is being maxed out, it then uses the hard drive as a swap for data that couldn't be stored in the ram. It takes more operations to store files onto a harddrive that has data stored all over the drivs already.

  10. For ps4 pro the best thing to do is remove the upper body of the console, with this method I got 55-60 fps in end game
