Guide to Disabling Volumetric Fog in Cyberpunk 2077 for PC

is an open-world RPG developed and published by CD Projekt Red. It is a highly ambitious title that has already sold over 13 million copies since launch. Despite the turbulent launch, and poor performance on base consoles, Cyberpunk 2077 has managed to become one of the highest played games of all time on PC. If you want to disable the Cyberpunk 2077 volumetric fog effect on PC completely, here is how you can do that.

Ever since launch, there are already tons of mods and tweaks available for the title. These can not only add quality of life changes but improve performance as well.

Disable Cyberpunk 2077 Volumetric Fog

If you aren’t a fan of the volumetric fog effect on PC, or, simply want to gain some performance, then you can disable it using a tweak. By default, the in-game setting allows you to turn the value to Low, but it doesn’t turn the effect off entirely, instead gives a weird ugly look.

To turn it off manually, you can follow the steps below.

  • Head over to where the game is installed, and navigate to the following folders
  • Here, open the Rendering.ini file using a text editor like Notepad
  • Add the following lines in this file
VolumetricFog = False
  • Save and exit

Here are some comparison shots to show the game with and without Volumetric fog.
