Bodycam system requirements: PC specifications, listed

It can ask a lot of your hardware.

Bodycam is currently in early access, and while almost all PC players can play the game, it all depends if you have the hardware to run the realistic first-person shooter (FPS). And because it’s not an indie-like game with simple graphics and mechanics, you’ll need a powerful machine.

What stands out about Bodycam from other FPS games is the attempt to make the graphics and gameplay as close to reality as possible, including a life-like movement, a limited number of bullets you can carry, and an aesthetic that mimics footage from a police bodycam.

The ultra-realistic graphics of Bodycam will ask a lot of your PC hardware even if you have the minimum system requirements so it’s expected you need to have a PC that can run AAA games. If you don’t check all the boxes to run Bodycam, the game will lag and not work properly even if you set all the graphic settings to low.

The most important specifications to run a game like Bodycam are the RAM and VRAM, which will dictate how well the game performs and looks. If you don’t have a graphics processing unit (GPU), you likely can’t run the game at all since it heavily depends on the graphics.
