Starfield: Best Settings For Steam Deck

Well, playing Starfield on Steam deck is possible, but you cannot expect extreme visual and high-level graphics since Steam deck has its own limitations with AAA titles that are resource-intensive and CPU-focused. Fortunately, you can expect decent performance of anywhere around 20–30 FPS in the game with the settings mentioned below.

Using these settings, some areas will run smoother like indoor environments. But places with heavy graphics, multiple NPCs, or during combat you should expect the frames to drop.

Dynamic Resolution Off
Render Resolution Scale 0.5
Graphics Preset Custom
Indirect Lighting Medium
Particle Quality Low
Reflections Low
Sharpening 0.85
Depth of Field On
Upscaling FSR2
Film Grain Off

The most intensive graphics on Starfield are related to shadows, volumetric textures, and motion blur. Hence, you can toggle these settings to medium or low to achieve a significant increase in FPS.

GTAO Quality Medium
Shadow Quality Low
Contact Shadows Medium
Volumetric Lighting Medium
Motion Blur Off

Additionally, you can modify a few preferential settings like Crowd Density, Grass Quality, and Enable VRS to get the most out of Stream Deck’s CPU.
