While the game is said to be playable on the Steam Deck, some players may encounter performance issues. Thankfully, we have some tips that can help you get the best performance out of the game.

Let’s find out how all about the best way to play Shadows of Doubt steam deck.

Best settings and performance to play Shadows of Doubt on steam deck

First, let’s talk about the game’s frame rate. Shadows of Doubt can run up to 60 FPS when you are indoors, but when going outdoors, the frame rate may dip considerably. To achieve a smoother experience, we recommended capping the FPS at 45 with FSR at 0. This will not only improve the game’s performance but also enhance your overall gaming experience.

Another issue players may encounter is the difficulty in controlling the investigation board with the standard controller layout. To better control the game, we suggest switching to a community layout that includes the trackpad. This will make it easier for you to navigate the game and control your character.

In terms of graphics settings, it is best to lower the resolution to 800×500 and set FSR at sharpness 0. Additionally, setting all graphics settings to the lowest except for rain on medium can improve both performance and battery life. 

It is worth noting that players should expect around 2 1/2 to 3 hours of battery life from a full charge. Additionally, the game’s text may be hard to read due to handwriting, so pay close attention when reading important dialogue.

Lastly, the game defaults to a controller layout, but it can be configured to use a keyboard and mouse in the settings. You can either toggle it or set it to auto switch, but you need to be using a mouse layout before you can change it.
