Increase download speed in Epic Games Launcher - 100% WORKING

As we know that GTA5 has been made free upto May 21st, 2020 in Epic Games Launcher exclusively so many people have been downloading the game via Epic Launcher but due to the higher number of requests to download the game, the team has slowed down the download speed in some of the regions. It as been a lot of pain to download the game due to its slow speed.

But there is a way you can use to  increase your download speed. I am going to tell you in detail about it. Follow the following steps:

Steps to increase download Speed:
1) Click Windows + R to open Run or search Run in search bar and open it.
2) Insert %appdata%  in the open field and click Enter to see a new window.
3) Go back to AppData folder on the new window and click on Local.
4) Go to EpicGamesLauncher folder inside the Local Directory.
5) Go to Saved -> Config -> Windows.
6) Click on View Tab at the top of window and press checkmark on Hidden items if not checked to view hidden items.
7) Engine.ini file appears on the window then open it.
8) Paste the following code in Engine.ini file:

[HTTP] HttpTimeout=10 HttpConnectionTimeout=10 HttpReceiveTimeout=10 HttpSendTimeout=10 [Portal.BuildPatch] ChunkDownloads=3 ChunkRetries=20 RetryTime=0.5

9) Click Save and close the file.
10) Close the running Epic Games Launcher and open again. Hurray! Your download speed has now increased.

This works on 95% of the cases but if there is any problem while increasing the speed then comment down, I will do my best to help you. Thank you!

  1. I have already done it does not help a lot my performance window shows the download speed is about 3.5 to 5 Mbps but the download window in Epic Game Launcher shows the speed of 0.00 B/s or 193 KB/s tell me a fix please.

    1. Your download speed is actually 3.5 to 5Mbps but epic launcher shows lower speed for some time but after certain period, epic launcher will begin to show the real speed.
