DOTA 2: How To Show FPS

dota 2 how to show fps

As with most eSports games, your FPS matters in DOTA 2. Your Frames Per Second can alter DOTA 2's response rates and have an impact on the game's smoothness. In high-level games, it can be a small FPS difference that determines whether a creep is last-hit or denied.

So how do you check your FPS in DOTA 2?

Fortunately, DOTA 2 has its own FPS counter that can be turned on. Here’s how:

Step 1: Launch DOTA 2 and open Settings

The settings bar is located at the top left of the screen. It’s the small gear icon.

Click the gear to open Settings.

Step 2: Open Options

When you open Settings, the first thing you see is the Hot Keys tab.

We’re looking for the “Options” tab, which you can open by clicking Options near the top of the Settings menu.

Step 3: Open Advanced Options

In the Options tab, there isn’t any option that says show FPS.

Instead, the feature is hidden away in Advanced Options. Click “To Advanced Options” at the bottom of the Options tab.

This should open up even more Options.

Step 4: Turn on the FPS counter

While the Advanced Settings tab has lots of cool settings, we’re interested in the Miscellaneous column to our right.

Here, turn on “Display Network Information”.

This option shows you lots of useful things: Your ping, packet loss, and most importantly, your FPS counter.

You can watch a video tutorial here.

And that’s it. With the setting on, DOTA 2 will show your FPS on the top right of your screen every time you’re in a match.
