Offworld Industries has implemented a bunch of under-the-hood improvements for Squad in Update v4.2.

One of the main highlights of Update v4.2 is that the game now supports AMD FSR2. This is AMD’s improved temporal upscaling technology that makes games like Squad appear as though it’s rendered at a higher resolution than it really is, while also boosting frame rates.

Aside from that, this patch has also updated the in-game graphics benchmark tool. This can be run by clicking the “Defaults” button on the graphics settings. The company recommends that players run this benchmark tool after updating to the latest version at least once. This is because some changes and optimizations have been made as part of the upgrade to Unreal Engine v4.27. Once the benchmark is finished, the recommended graphics settings will automatically be applied, giving players the best possible experience given their current hardware.
