Left 4 Dead 2 Performance Config

Left 4 Dead 2 FPS CFG

Welcome to Kaizen’s Left 4 Dead 2 Config!

This Left 4 Dead 2 performance config is designed to boost your frame rates (FPS) while maintaining the best possible graphics experience.

It also attempts to improve hit registration (i.e. the accuracy of your shots) by optimizing network settings, improve the visibility of the crosshair, and increase brightness so you can see enemies better.

Unfortunately, as was the case with the original L4D, L4D2 restricts most of the Source Engine’s console commands. Many of the best performance options can only accessed via the in game menu’s. Feel free to tweak any of the settings in this config to your liking, descriptions of what commands do are provided.

If you have any suggestions, questions or other feedback please post on our forums.

Enjoy!
