The culprit for the Baldur’s Gate 3 Steam Deck blurry graphics bug is a setting called AMD FSR 1.0. Applied incorrectly, it causes all textures to appear as if viewed with heavy depth of field. 

To fix the blurry Baldur’s Gate 3 bug do the following:

  • Open the game’s settings
  • Swap to the Video tab
  • Scroll down to find AMD FSR 1.0 under the Post Process header
  • Disable AMD FSR 1.0

Once disabled, you should be able to see again, though you may find that a lack of good anti-aliasing is causing some jagged edges. You can enable FidelityFX Sharpening to help with this if you don’t mind the visual effects of high sharpness on some textures. Keep an eye on patch notes as well, because there's every chance this issue will be fixed in a future update for the game.

All other settings can be left as default or adjusted as you like to improve framerate or visuals. Just be aware that if you pump the graphics up too high, you’ll seriously heat up the Steam Deck and drain its battery life even faster than Baldur’s Gate 3 normally does.

That’s the simple fix to the Baldur’s Gate 3 Steam Deck blurry graphics bug, so you can now get back to exploring the world and stumbling into battles. Be sure to read our beginner’s tips that are easily missed, and check out these useful early game items that’ll grant your party an advantage.
