Lost Ark is a surprisingly gorgeous game that is held back by a capped framerate. Since a large part of this game is PvP-oriented with a competitive focus, there is no wonder why players want to achieve the highest FPS possible in order to potentially gain an upper hand. Luckily, there is a way for players to uncap their FPS.

How to remove the FPS cap in Lost Ark

Lost Ark actually has no in-game way of unlocking your framerate cap. Luckily, there is a simple two-step alternative that you can try out to unlock higher framerates. One of these steps is done within Lost Ark while the other is done by adjusting your GPU drivers. Follow the steps below to remove the FPS cap in Lost Ark.

Step 1

  • Open Lost Ark and head to the Settings.
  • Go to the Video tab and change the screen from Borderless Window to Fullscreen.
  • Apply the settings and close down the game. Move on to step two.

Step 2

Now we will alter some settings with our GPU in order to uncap the framerate. Follow the steps that correlate to your GPU.


  • Launch the AMD Radeon Software.
  • Under the Gaming tab, find and select Lost Ark.
  • Enable the Radeon Enhanced Sync.


  • Open the Nvidia Control Panel.
  • Navigate to Manage 3D Settings and select the Program Settings tab.
  • Select Lost Ark from the available executable files.
  • Players must then turn off the Vertical Sync.
  • Click on Apply to save the changes

After you have followed the correlating steps above, there should no longer be a cap on Lost Ark’s FPS. It will now shoot for the highest FPS that your hardware is capable of. AS a last reminder, it is always best practice to close down all background apps, as it can cause FPS dips and stutters.
