How to reduce lag in COD Mobile with new Preload Shader feature

With the release of Call of Duty: Mobile Season 10, entitled “Shadows Return”, comes new maps, weapons, modes and much more.

Reduce lag by enabling Preload Shader

Not all mobile devices are the same. Those with high-end mobile devices should not experience lag in COD Mobile, while those who barely meet the device requirements may experience a lot of lag, hang, and even input latency.

The official description simply reads: “A new Shader Preload setting is available in audio/graphics settings to help enhance player gaming experience.”

Follow 7 steps below to enable the Shader Preload setting, thereby reducing lag in Call of Duty: Mobile .

  • Update to the latest Call of Duty: Mobile version .
  • Run the game.
  • Head to the settings menu.
  • Tap on audio/graphics.
  • Head to graphics and enable Shader Preload.
  • Tap on “Start”.
  • Wait two to five minutes without attempting any other action in the game.

As the image above, you have to wait until your device is done with the Shader Preload workload; otherwise the process will restart.
