Escape From Tarkov FPS Command To Show FPS Counter In Raid
Displaying your FPS counter in Escape From Tarkov (EFT) raids can help you monitor game performance and importantly allow you to analyse the impact of changes to your graphic settings. With Tarkov being well known for stuttering gameplay and low FPS issues there are a number of optimisation guides created by the community to help give your FPS a boost.
Despite these best efforts there still seems to be no clear blanket recommendations for players with different settings having varied results based on individual hardware. It’s for this reason that being able to display your own Tarkov FPS counter through a console command in raid allows you to find the ideal settings for maximum performance with your setup.
If you’ve wondered what the EFT FPS command is and how to show FPS in Tarkov this quick guide will detail the necessary steps to activate the FPS counter.

Tarkov FPS Window – Meaning Of Each FPS 1 Number
Ever wondered what the meaning of all the numbers in the Tarkov FPS window? We break down what exactly each number means below for the basic (fps 1) mode as these are the most useful to debugging and optimisation.
The following numbers are available in basic (fps 1) mode:
- Limit: Displays your set FPS limit within the Tarkov graphic settings which can be set independently for menus and in raid.
- FPS: Shows the Tarkov FPS counter that will constantly update with your frames per second and is a useful optimisation tool. Improving your FPS in Tarkov often comes down to finding the right balance of graphic settings for your machine and preferences.
- RTT: Stands for Round Trip Time which is similar to ping in other games as it displays the time taken for your information to be sent and acknowledged by the server. This is impacted by things like server selection and your own internet service provider (ISP).
- Loss: Shows the amount of packet loss you have which can impact the information you are sending to the Tarkov server.
- PlayerRTT: Similar to RTT this number will show a higher number as it includes the time taken for the server to update for the information you have sent it (and thus making it available to other players sending their information).
When in advanced (fps 2) mode the following additional information is provided to the player in the Tarkov show FPS window:
- Average fuFPS (yellow)
- Average fuFPS (white)
- Single fuFPS:
- Render, ms
- Frame, ms
- Buffer count
- Cam Position
