What does the ‘Low FPS on client’ message mean?
The ‘Low Client FPS’ message is a warning that has Valorant about the drop in frame rate per second (frames per second). The notice is a call to the user about the poor performance that the game is having on their computer given the configuration they have.
This message will continue to appear whenever a drop in performance is noticed. Unless certain aspects of the configuration related to the computer are changed and solved. Making the title work according to the machine you have.
How to fix ‘Low FPS on client’ issue?
To solve the drop in FPS in Valorant, first we will have to see what its minimum and recommended requirements are. This is to determine what state our computer is in and to know how the game will work.
- RAM: 4GB
- Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 or equivalent
- Graphics card: Intel HD 4000 or equivalent
- RAM: 4GB
- Processor: Intel i3-4150 or equivalent
- Graphics card: GeForce GT 730 or equivalent
- RAM: 8GB
- Processor: Intel i5-4460 3.2 GHZ or equivalent
- Graphics card: GTX 1050 Ti or equivalent
If your computer meets the minimum requirements, the game can run perfectly at 30 FPS. If it exceeds these and reaches the recommended ones, you can configure the section at 60 FPS. But if your equipment is much superior, you can reach 120 FPS.
So, to prevent this message from appearing again, you will have to limit the FPS of Valorant on your computer. To do this, you will have to enter the configuration section and depending on your machine and go to the video section. Here you will have to set the FPS limitation to the values mentioned above in two sections.
- Limit FPS in the background: Yeah
- Maximize FPS in the background: 60FPS
- Always limit FPS: Yeah
- Always maximize FPS: 60FPS
This will prevent the message from appearing again. Making the limit that the equipment has consistent with the ‘hardware’ it handles. Giving the player the possibility of playing and enjoying each of the games, without annoying messages.
How to configure Valorant on a work or study laptop?
In case you have a laptop for study or work and want to play Valorant, the optimal configuration is different. This is mainly because most of these devices have resources that are not designed for gaming. Something that Riot Games understands very well and knows how to cover.
Originally, the basic requirements for the game to work are to have a computer that has Windows 10|11, 4 GB of RAM and a 1 GB graphics card, which can be integrated.
Taking this into account and that some computers have mixed requirements between the minimum and recommended, it means that the experience can be met in certain aspects and not in others. Therefore, we will give you a suggested configuration that you can use:
- Limit FPS in background: Yes
- Maximize FPS in background: 45 FPS
- Always limit FPS: Yes
- Always maximize FPS: 45 FPS

You must keep in mind that these recommendations are not valid if your computer does not meet the minimum requirements or has performance problems. There are several players who have devices that exceed the minimum requirements, but the game does not work as it should due to lack of cleaning or high temperatures.
