How to show the FPS in Battlefield 4 on PC

If you ask yourself if you can enable a Display of the FPS in Battlefield 4, then you will be happy if I tell you that it is possible. Actually I participate in the beta of Battlefield 4 and wanted to know how the measured performance of the game and my hardware is. You know you can feel if there is heavy graphic lag but if the lag is only sometimes noticeable, you might start to get nosy about the FPS. While it is still a beta, I wanted to adjust and tweak the game without the automatic settings. The mentioned things here will also work in the fully released game! So, here is how you can enable the FPS display in BF 4…

You need to type a command into the game console. You can open the console in Battlefield 4 with the tilde key (~). Once you opened the console, you need to type in:

perfoverlay.drawfps 1

After that you need to hit the return key to confirm your input. Then you just need to close the console with the tilde key again. You will now notice that the FPS display is enabled on the upper right corner of Battlefield 4 and now you have real frame rate data to adjust and tweak your game settings.

If you want to have the FPS display permanently then it is highly recommended to put the command into a config file, to load the function on each start of the game.

You might want to learn about some other useful BF4 console commands. I did put a list together with some useful commands. It might be that I will add some more console commands to the list in the future, if I did write an article about the other commands. Check the list out, it might be that there are other commands, you didn´t know.
