For PC players, achieving 120 FPS comes at a slight graphical trade-off. While the game might not look quite as stunning as at 60 FPS, the smoothness boost is undeniable. Here’s how to activate it:

  1. Launch XDefiant and head over to the Settings menu.
  2. Navigate to the “Video & Graphics” section.
  3. Locate the “Refresh Rate” option. This setting lets you switch between 30 FPS, 60 FPS, and the coveted 120 FPS.

Note: Ensure XDefiant is running in full-screen mode before attempting to change the Refresh Rate. This option will be locked otherwise.

To maintain a smooth 120 FPS experience, consider tweaking other settings within the “Video & Graphics” menu. Lowering graphics settings can significantly improve frame rate. Additionally, using a sensitivity converter alongside 120 FPS can further enhance your in-game performance.


Good news for console warriors! Both Xbox Series X and PS5 can achieve the coveted 120 FPS in XDefiant. However, Xbox Series S users might be limited to 60 FPS due to the console’s hardware limitations.

Here’s how to enable it on Xbox Series X/PS5 (note the slightly different menu names):

  1. Open XDefiant and navigate to the Settings menu.
  2. Locate the “Video Settings” section.
  3. Find the option labeled “120 Hz Refresh Rate.”
  4. Unlike PC, you’ll simply toggle this option on or off.

With 120 FPS at your fingertips, you’re well on your way to becoming a XDefiant force to be reckoned with! Remember, for PC players, achieving a sustained 120 FPS might require adjusting graphical settings. However, the unparalleled smoothness is undeniably worth the trade-off. Now go forth and dominate the arena!
