# BEFORE YOU PLAY: REDFALL ON STEAM DECK
If you’re a gaming enthusiast, you’re probably familiar with the recent release of Redfall from Arkane. Unfortunately, after four hours of gameplay, the general consensus seems to be that Redfall is a miss from Arkane, unless there’s an undisclosed depth to the game that has yet to be discovered.
However, unlike another recent big release, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Redfall can still be playable on the Steam Deck with a few easy tweaks. Just keep in mind that it may not look as good, but it’s still better than the default setting!
# MAGIC FIX
Redfall seems to default to 800p medium specs on the Deck without AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR 2.1 Quality), which currently isn’t working on the Deck. Instead, run the game at 1280x720p, low spec, with FSR 2.1 Ultra Performance to make it playable. However, keep in mind that the motion may be a little muddy.
Here are the settings you can use.
Before playing, I also recommend pulling up the Deck’s quick settings menu and, under Performance, setting your Refresh Rate to 40Hz and Frame Limiter to 40fps. Doing so should improve both battery life and responsiveness. You may notice that my settings consume more energy, but I immediately saw a dip in wattage after locking the refresh rate and FPS at 40 each.
Until further fixes arrive from Bethesda and AMD, these are my recommendations for playing Redfall on Steam Deck. Make sure to use the above settings to improve your gameplay experience.
Addressing the audience directly, Steam Deck has revolutionized the way gaming enthusiasts play games on the go. Its ease of use, combined with its powerful components, make it a gaming console worth investing in.
In conclusion, if you’re looking for ways to improve your Redfall gameplay experience on Steam Deck, use the above settings and you’re good to go!
