The new patch 0.12.5 of Escape from Tarkov introduced postfx settings to the game. It helps you to fine-tune the graphics & visuals of the game to better your game’s processing and experience. It can provide with huge PvP visibility advantage and an edge in fights while making the game even prettier. So here is the guide to give you that edge in both gameplay and game look.
- Brightness – The balance of black and white.
- Saturation – The strength of colours. Don’t put it too high as the colours will just pop like a sun on your screen. Low would give you a mingle of colours.
- Clarity – Adds distinction and highlights to the objects.
- Colourfulness – As far as I can see, this one does the same thing as saturation.
- Luma Sharpen – Strength of lighting without mixing it with other fx.
- Adaptive Sharpen – Sharpens the textures, kind of like the effect you get when you take painkillers in the game.
- Colour Grading – Applies various filters to the entire image. Extensive testing will show whether any of these provides any advantage.
- Colourblind mode – Each of these makes the game easier to read for people with particular types of colour blindness. As far as an advantage to others, the same applies as above.
Best PostFX Settings
First set your postfx to default to undo any changes that might have been done by you prior to this guide. Also, these changes best take effect if you are not using colour grading or colour blind mode.
- Brightness – 20 on daytime maps, as high as you can handle on night maps
- Saturation – Between 15 and 25
- Clarity – Around 50
- Colourfulness – Around 30
- Luma Sharpen – Between 40 and 50
- Adaptive Sharpen – Between 30 and 40
There is no perfect setting, so according to your preference tweak this accordingly and get the perfection you want.
Nvidia game filter settings
The gamma sliders are much better than any PostFx settings you can manage. The game filter has an overall sustain and is a better choice than the above settings.
- Tint Color – 0%
- Tint Intensity – 0%
- Temperature – 0
- Vibrance – 70
- Sharpen – 70%
- Ignore Film Grain – 15%
- Exposure – 0%
