Atomic Heart is the latest game from Mundfish, and it is absolutely amazing. Despite being on last-gen consoles, the game still looks amazing and has tons of beautiful detail in it. The best part about all this is that you can even play the game on the Steam Deck which is always a welcomed addition.

However, if you decide to use Very High or High settings, you will notice that there are a lot of FPS drops. This is especially true if you are exploring the open world or fighting tons of enemies at the same time. To counter this issue, we have mentioned the best Steam Deck settings for Atomic Heart so that you have a smooth experience.

Atomic Heart: Best Steam Deck Settings For Increased FPS

The only issue that you’ll face initially is the small text size but you’ll be adjusted to that easily. Also, while you are playing on Low-Medium graphics, the game still looks good thanks to the resolution being 1280×800 on the Steam Deck.
