Symptoms include slow or frozen character movement, long pauses between animations, and poor frame rates. Depending on how bad the problem is, it may even make the game unplayable.

To fix this issue, we recommend analyzing your graphics settings. Your in-game graphics settings might be set too high for your system, which is causing the problem. If so, you can adjust the graphics settings to a lower level in order to prevent any conflicts. Here is how you can do this:


  • Open your in-game Settings.
  • Go to the Graphics Settings.
  • Now, you can set your graphics according to your device.


If you have a low-end device, we recommend lowering your FPS and Fidelity FX Super Resolution. Try this solution first before attempting any further troubleshooting steps.


Close Background Apps

One possible reason for this issue might be background applications. RAM eater applications, such as Google Chrome, can be the reason for your game lag. Make sure to close all the background applications which are not in use before playing the game. To do so, follow the simple steps given below:


  • Open Task Manager by pressing the CTRL+SHIFT+ESC buttons
  • Select the application you want to remove.
  • Click on END TASK to remove it from the background.


Update Your Drivers


Update Drivers

If the above troubleshooting fails to resolve your issue, you may need to update your drivers. Outdated or incorrect drivers can cause performance issues, especially when playing games on PC. Updating all your drivers to the latest version can help resolve these problems. Below we have shared the steps on how you can update your drivers:

  • Press the Start Button.
  • Type Device Manager on the search bar.
  • Double-click on Display Adapters.
  •  Double-click on your driver.
  • Next, click the Driver option on the top, and tap Update Driver.

Doing so will update your drivers and may fix your lag and stuttering problems.
