ReShade Issues

PUBG ReShade has recently been facing some usage issues. ReShade is no longer allowed in PUBG; but this doesn’t mean if you use it, you’ll get banned, it just means you could now look into some other options to enhance your PUBG gaming sessions.

Besides, PUBG ReShade causes a slight drop in frame rates, so if you’re particular about Frame rates, you’ll definitely be better off with other options. The other options there are is to configure overall vibrancy in the graphics card directly.

For NVIDIA Graphics Card, you can use the NVIDIA Freestyle and Digital Vibranceto configure graphic enhancements; while for AMD graphics cards, you can use the tool VibranceGUIto configure and activate the settings once a PUBG gaming session is activated. These options improve things such as Hue and Saturation in the game while still keeping the Default frame rates, however, PUBG ReShade does a better job at graphic and visual enhancements, and if you’re willing to forgo some Frame rates, it is the best for visual and graphic enhancements.
