1) Best Graphics Settings for MORDHAU

These graphics settings are for low-end computers.

If you have a good pc or laptop, you can increase the settings slightly.

Go to in-game settings > Video > Graphics

Anti Aliasing: Off. Anti Aliasing removes jagged edges on geometry

Effects Quality: Low. Affects various visuals of the game, including Particle Effects density, Screen Space effects, Translucency and Shaders.

Shadow Quality: Low. Changes the visual quality and rendering distance of Dynamic Shadowmaps, as well as other types of shadows like Indirect Shadows and Volumetric Shadows.

Indirect Shadows: Uncheck.

View Distance: Low. Mostly affects the rendering distance of Foliage and Particle Effects.

Post Process Quality: Low.

Foliage Density: Low.

Character Quality: Low.

Character Cloth: No Cloth.
