Battlefield 4 Console CommandsFeatured

Here are some simple but useful tips to keep track of your game’s performance and also how to execute other Battlefield 4 Console Commands. We already have the following console commands posted in our BF3 section of the forums but thought i would update them for BF4.

Some of the following commands will come in handy for video editing.

First off, Battlefield 4 has a number of commands that can be entered into its console. To bring up the console, press the tilde key, which is just above the tab key.

Type in Code:
render.drawfps 1
and press enter to display your frame rate in the top right corner of the screen as shown below.


Type in
render.perfoverlayvisible 1
and press enter to view a graph with details on your CPU and GPU performance as shown at the top of this post. The higher the line, the longer the time to render. So, you want to see low lines here with minimal spikes. Long render times indicate a performance bottleneck.

As many have noticed, player pings are not displayed in the score display (tab key) in BF3. However, it’s possible to display your ping by pressing the following key combination:

Ctrl + Alt + S

This will make the text box shown below appear in the top right corner of your screen. The IGO Time indicates your ping to the server.

render.perfoverlayvisible 1

The first option is from the console. First, press the tilde ( ` ) key.
