You may be trying to improve performance and FPS in League of Legends but can’t do it due to your low-end PC. We have you covered in this guide with the best low-end settings for League of Legends to increase performance and FPS for a smoother experience.

How to Increase FPS and Performance for League of Legends On a Low-End PC

Just because you’re PC isn’t one of the most expensive ones on the market and is considered “low-end” doesn’t mean you have to suffer from poor performance. Follow the steps we have laid out for you below to increase performance and FPS in League of Legends.

League of Legends Client General Settings

  1. Enable Low Spec Mode in the League Client Settings.
  2. Check “Close client during the game.”
  3. Uncheck “Automatically Send Crash Reports.”

Once completed, head to your folder where League of Legends is installed and go to the config folder to edit the “Game.CFG” file. Next, make sure the Game.CFG File is not write-protected by right-clicking the game file and selecting “Properties.” In the properties section, disable the write protected option. Once you have that out of the way, scroll down to [Performance] in the config folder. Move on to the next section.
