Playing Brawlhalla in windowed mode is charming, but sometimes you just have to duke it out in fullscreen, y’know?

Going fullscreen in Brawlhalla has its own advantages: better field vision, clearer view of weapon pickups, closer admiration of your cosmetic items, to name a few.

Brawlhalla currently does not have a true exclusive fullscreen mode, so we’ll be teaching you how to play Brawlhalla in borderless windowed mode and also how to reduce input lag. This is essentially windowed mode, but stretched to fill your screen as though it's displayed in fullscreen.

Here are 5 quick fullscreen tips you can use today for this beloved F2P platform fighter.

Solution 1: Use Alt-Enter or F11 to play fullscreen in Brawlhalla

These are universal keyboard shortcuts for players to toggle games to go full screen mode on Windows PC. If you tap [Alt] and [Enter] together, Brawlhalla should be able to go fullscreen. If that didn’t work originally, tap it twice.

You can also troubleshoot by using [F11] key. Go through the checklist below:

  • Press [Alt] [Enter] once or twice to go fullscreen.
  • Press [F11] key once to go fullscreen.
  • Hold [Fn] and press [F11] key once to go fullscreen.

If these troubleshoots did not work, let’s try adjusting your settings from within the game. Head to solution 2.

Solution 2: Change your Display mode through in-game preference settings in Brawlhalla

Inside the Brawlhalla preference menu, you can change display modes. If you set [Fullscreen], it will trigger Borderless Windowed mode. The game will automatically adjust to your monitor’s resolution.

To change your display mode, head to Brawlhalla’s options menu.

  1. At your home screen, bring your attention to the top right side.
  2. Under your account icon, click on an icon that looks like a wrench. 🔧
  3. Click on [System settings].
  4. Find the [Display mode] setting and choose [Fullscreen].

If this didn’t work:

  1. Select [Windowed] mode first, and apply settings.
  2. After going into Windowed mode, change display mode back to [Fullscreen].

As stated above, Brawlhalla should automatically adjust to your monitor’s resolution. However, if you do experience blurry visuals from this new setting, head to solution 4 and 5 for more details on how to fix it.

Solution 3: Play Brawlhalla using Borderless Gaming Application

Solution 4: Try launching Brawlhalla with Steam Launch Options

Steam launch options is a hidden gem only for users who installed Brawlhalla on Steam.

Through this feature, playerscan force almost any game in their steam library to open in either Windowed, Borderless Windowed, Fullscreen mode.

Sed height to -h [value]

As stated in Solution 2 (using in-game settings), if your game looks blurry while in fullscreen, you can set custom width & height resolutions with Steam Launch Options to resolve this.

Just make sure you know which dimensions to set for your monitor. Usually, -w 1920 and -h 1080 is enough, but you should make sure by checking your PC display settings.
