1. First up and most obvious, you’ll want to download ReShade and begin installing it.
  2. Locate the game on your computer. Most people will find it by following this default path: C-Drive > Program Files > Steam > SteamApps > common > PUBG > TslGame > Binaries > Win64 > Tslgame.exe
  3. Select your rendering API, in most cases you’ll wanna select Direct 3D 10+ or OpenGL.
  4. Once prompted “Do you wish to download a collection of standard effect from https://github.com/crosire/reshade-shaders?” — reply yes.
  5. Click “Uncheck All” on the list of shaders.
  6. From here you can select which settings you prefer, but I’ll list my recommended settings.
  7. AdaptiveSharpen.fx (This will essentially sharpen the games visuals and make them less blurry.)
  8. HDR.fx (This will make the game over all more bright and depending on your monitor, give you a better colour range.)
  9. Technicolor2.fx (This will give you a more vibrant less saturated colour pallet.)
 Other potential plugins you may want to use or try.
  • Vibrance.fx (Once again, this will give you a much brighter more vibrant color pallet)
  • LumaSharpen.fx (This will also sharpen the image, I only recommend using this or AdaptiveSharpen.fx, not both at the same time as too much sharpening may just ruin the image. Experiment with which you prefer)
  • Clarity.fx (This also aims to add sharper/clearer visuals, and once again, I’d only recommend using this and maybe LumaSharpen.fx or AdaptiveSharpen.fx)
Continuing on,
  1. Start up PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS.
  2. Open ReShade by pressing Shift + F2.
  3. If you wish, go through the quick user interface tutorial.
  4. Once that’s done, click the plus icon on the top right under Home to create a new profile and create a name for it.
  5. At the bottom collapse the Adaptive Sharpen window.
  6. Double click on Strength under Technicolor 2 and adjust to 0.500 (If you selected this setting earlier that is. You can also fiddle with the other plugins you selected earlier here as well.)
  7. You may also want to set up your toggle key options and assign keys to your plugins if you wish to enable or disable them on the fly, I would recommend just using the numpad keys.
  8. Next, go to the Settings Tab.
  9. You’ll wanna look for “Usage Mode” and then change this to “Performance” (You can adjust this later if you wanna experiment.)
  10. Press Reload and exit.
