When Genshin Impact was released, it was one of the hottest games to play, and everyone was trying to get into it. Since then, the hype is much lower, but still, many people play the game, and many new players are jumping in it every day. Once you start playing the game, you will immediately notice the beautiful graphics, which comes with a cost that if your PC can’t handle that, you will have to lower the settings and probably won’t enjoy these graphics.
In this post, I will try to show you the best settings for Genshin Impact to try to balance performance and graphics quality to give you the best in-game experience possible. Because every pc is different, for some of the settings, instead of suggestions, you may find some tips, and you’ll have to choose on your own.
Best Genshin Impact Control Settings
In the control settings tab, there are only three settings that you can change. Two of them are about the sensitivity when moving the camera, and the other is to choose how you control the game—for example, Keyboard, Controller, etc.
- Control Type: Choose whatever you are playing with. (e.x Keyboard)
- Camera Sensitivity: 4
- Camera Sensitivity (Aimed Shot Mode): 4
You can test the above settings to find the perfect sensitivity for your self. This is my recommendation, which comes from personal experience and what works best for most of the players.
Best Genshin Impact Graphics Settings
The graphics settings in Genshin Impact are the most crucial settings that will determine the game’s performance and how it looks. I aim to achieve the best performance possible and keep the quality of the graphics on balance because it has such beautiful graphics that it would be such a pity to play it on the lowest settings for just a few extra FPS.
- Graphics Quality: Custom
- Display Mode: Choose your native resolution plus Full Screen for optimal performance and FPS.
- FPS: 60
- V-Sync: Off
- Render Resolution: For most of you, 1.1 is the best option, but you can go higher or lower depending on your hardware.
- Shadow Quality: Lowest
- Visual Effects: Medium to High depending on your pc.
- SFX Quality: Medium to High depending on your pc.
- Environment Detail: Medium to High depending on your pc.
- Anti-Aliasing: If your PC can handle this, then go for SMAA. If not, then turn it off. TAA is not worth it.
- Volumetric Fog: Off
- Reflections: On
- Motion Blur: Off
- Bloom: Off
- Crowd Density: Low
- Co-Op Teammate Effects: On
- Subsurface Scattering: Off
If you are really getting low FPS in this game, then the best thing you can do is turn every off and lower every single setting to the lowest value. Your game won’t look the same, but at least it will be playable for you. On the other hand, if your pc can easily handle medium to High settings, I highly recommend you play around with the above settings and try to get the best visuals. The game looks so beautiful on the highest graphics.
Best Genshin Impact Sound Settings
Only a few options available in the Sound settings of Genshin Impact, which won’t make any dramatic changes.
- Volume: 10
- Music Volume: 8
- Dialogue Volume: 3
- SFX Volume: 10
Best Genshin Impact Other Settings
- Mini-Map Settings: Try both Fix and Rotating mini-maps and see which one works better for you.
- Camera Y-Axis Resets Automatically: On
- Combat Camera Settings: On
- Default Camera Distance: 6
- Auto-Play Story: Off
- Verify File Integrity: If you are experiencing FPS drops, lags, crashes, or general issues with Genshin Impact, then a possible fix would be to verify the file’s integrity. Just press the button Start Verification.
How to change Genshin Impact voice and text Language
In Genshin Impact, unlike many other games, there is an option to change text and voice in-game Language. It can be easily achieved by navigating to the settings menu. Below you can find step by step how to change Genshin Impact Languages.
Navigate to the settings of Genshin Impact and click on Language.
On the right side now, you can see two settings. Game Language changes the text language that you’ll see in-game, and the Voice-Over Language, which changes the language that the in-game characters are speaking. The available languages for Voice-Over Language for Genshin Impact are Chinese, English, Japanese, and Korean.
You can unistall any Voice Over languages by clicking on Manage Voice-Over File, and choosing unistall.

Why is Genshin impact ping so high?
The first thing you should make sure of is that you are connected to the right server. By right server, I mean the game server that is closer to your location. If, for example, you live in Germany, the perfect server for you would be the European one.
Can I change my Genshin Impact server?
Changing Genshin Impact server is pretty easy. You can do so in the main menu of the game but keep in mind that you can not transfer your characters from one server to the other one.
