How much data does Dungeon Fighter Online use?

How much data does Dungeon Fighter Online use


If you use a fixed mobile data or hotspot connection, an online game like Dungeon Fighter Online (DFO) can eat through your mobile data. Let’s take a closer look at the data it takes to download, update, and play DFO. Just keep in mind that switching to an unlimited mobile data plan with no limit or throttle is the easiest way to game on mobile data.


Dungeon Fighter Online file size

The game download usually uses much more mobile data than updating or playing the game does. DFO, which is only available on PC, is no exception. Keep in mind the game’s file size will be larger than its download size (which is compressed), and that the game’s file size increases over time as developers release patches and updates.

Platform File size
Microsoft Windows <18 GB

Dungeon Fighter Online updates and patches

Neople often releases updates and patches for DFO, which you can learn more about in the update news. If an update or patch might push you over your monthly data limit, turn off auto-updates and only manually install the updates when you have data available.


Dungeon Fighter Online data use

DFO uses less than 10 MB of data per hour, which is very little for a multiplayer online game. The exact amount of data you’ll end up using while playing DFO depends on the number of players in your game mode, the tick rate of your server, your frame rate, and whether or not you use a voice chat platform while you play:

  • The more players in a game, the more online data (e.g. chat logs, location, and stats) your local network has to share with other players’ networks. To use less data, avoid playing DFO in Party Play mode, which uses closer to 40 MB of data per hour or 4 times more than PvP Arenas.
  • A 128-tick server, which refreshes the game 128 times every second, uses about twice as much data as a 64-tick server, which refreshes the game 64 times every second. To use less data, play on a 64-tick server when possible.
  • A higher frame rate refreshes the game more often, which makes it run faster. A lower frame rate saves you data, but makes it harder for you to react quickly in the game. To use less data, lower your frame rate (measured in FPS) in your game settings. To change this setting, you’ll first need to disable vertical synch (V-Synch).
  • Voice chat uses a lot of data. If you’re connected to other players on Skype or another platform while you play DFO, you’ll use more than twice as much data during gameplay.
