How to disable the Redout 2 Chromatic Aberration Effect on PC

Redout 2 is an arcade racing game by 34BigThings and Saber Interactive. The title is now available on PC and multiple consoles after a delay. The Switch version has been delayed a little further, but is available everywhere else. Redout 2 runs very well on PC on a variety of systems, but lacks some visual settings. If you want to disable the Redout 2 Chromatic Aberration Effect, do the following.

Disable the Redout 2 Chromatic Aberration effect

Unfortunately, like many other Unreal Engine titles, Redout 2 doesn’t give you the option to disable post-processing effects, one of which is Chromatic Aberration. In a game like Redout 2 it makes a lot more sense to use this for the visual changes it can bring, but many players prefer to leave it out. To do this, follow the steps below to do it manually.

  • Open Run windows either by pressing Windows + R key together, or by searching for it in Windows search
  • Enter the following address and press OK
%LOCALAPPDATA%Redout2SavedConfigWindowsNoEditor
You can access Redout 2's configuration file with Run and disable Redout 2's chromatic aberration effect
Location of Redout 2 in Windows Run
  • Open the here Engine.ini file with a text editor such as notepador Notepad++
  • Now add the following lines at the end of the file
[SystemSettings]
r.SceneColorFringeQuality=0
  • Now save the file (Ctrl+S) and exit

After the file is saved, Chromatic Aberration will be completely removed from the game the next time you launch Redout 2.

However, if you want to enable it, just follow the steps above and remove the lines. Since this is a game with a number of effects, you may prefer to keep it activated.

The PC version of Redout 2 currently has mostly positive reviews from Steam users. While this doesn’t happen often, we really hope the developers add an in-game option that allows players to disable certain post-processing effects.
