This is a config that i took from the esports website and tweaked some values to make the game look relatively "normal" and keeping the same vibe. Also adding some new lines in there i found digging trough UE4 forums.
After a while of tweaking and doing bunch of trial and error with what settings to keepe and disable think i found a good match. Given this to few people with performance issues and asked for feedback and its been overwhelmingly positive sofar!
So i figured i'd post it here in the steam guides for all to have go at and see if it works or not for them.
Finding the Folder and File
First off what you want to do is to get to the file directory. Hit the Windows key + R and then paste this within the run application:
Now look for Engine.ini and open it with Notepad.
The Config Paste
Now copypaste this under the existing text once done so feel free to make the file read only but with experimenting this has no impact of changing any of the settings on its own so its not needed.
Did some changes to the paste. Made the game look alot more like the original look but still giving a major performance boost.

Steam Launch Options
These are the launch options i've used and they seem to do something in terms of performance:
- -malloc=system -maxMem -refresh -USEALLAVAILABLECORES
I would not recommend using -sm4 as it adds shadow flickering.
