DNF Duel is a fighting game from Arc System Works and Nexon. The studio has been on a roll, and they previously released Guilty Gear Strive back in 2021, which was a huge hit on PC and consoles. Now that the title is out, it’s being played by thousands of PC players, and it’s nice to see a fighting game getting so much attention on this platform. Though, if you are running into DNF Duel Blurry Visuals issue, especially on a 4K monitor, here is how you can fix it.

Fixing the DNF Duel Blurry Visuals issue

Multiple users on a display setup with a resolution higher than 1080p have complained that they aren’t exactly getting a sharp image. It feels as if the game is being rendered on a lower resolution. This is mostly due to Windows’ DPI settings overriding the particular game. You can fix this easily by following the steps below.

  • Open Steam and then your library
  • Here, right-click on DNF Duel
  • Click Manage
  • Then select Browse local files

Now, launch the game again, and you’ll notice how everything looks sharp and is rendered properly.

Make sure to double-check if you have set the resolution to 4K in your game settings as well. You can further enhance the visual quality by turning on MSAA if you can afford it. Guilty Gear Strive had similar issues at launch, and we covered that as well.
