Unless you play DOTA 2 exclusively on a high-end gaming rig, chances are you’ve probably had a session that got derailed by performance issues, which usually happens when a new patch is released. To spare yourself the frustration, you have two realistic options: upgrade your PC – or optimizing settings for performance.

When tweaking your settings for maximum performance, it’s important to keep an eye on your FPS. While you can keep track of your FPS using third-party software like MSI Afterburner, it’s smarter to take advantage of the in-game monitor, which is easier to set up and doesn’t place an additional performance burden on your system.

Here is how to turn on and use the DOTA 2 FPS and ping monitor.
