Deathloop Stuttering Issues Fix on PC
It was stated that many Deathloop players on PC via Steam experienced problems such as crashes to stuttering. It was predicted that the problem occurs because of the Denuvo anti-cheat software commonly used in PC games, however, that is not the case as explained below.
According to Digital Foundry, the stuttering issues of Deathloop on PC are not caused by the Denuvo anti-piracy DRM, as confirmed by Alexander Battaglia. Infact, the issue is actually occurring due to framerate and mouse input controls.
There is no direct evidence at the moment in all my testing that there is microstuttering/that denuvo is at fault for anything. There is an issue though with something that looks like stutters though, but is not actually performance related. I think it is best to report on that. https://t.co/8vCU0w7I0U

Here’s how to fix Deathloop Stuttering Issues on PC:
- First of all, you need to turn off Vsync in Deathloop by going into the game’s Settings.
- After turning it off, the frame limiter cannot be turned off. So try to set it to the highest value of 120 frame rates.
- After that, go to your desktop and open Nvidia Control Panel.
- In Nvidia Control Panel, add Deathloop’s application and go into its program settings and turn on Vsync.
- Lastly, also try to limit the frame rate to 60 FPS.
After performing the above fix, the stuttering issues of Deathloop on your PC should be resolved. However, if you are still facing the same problem, you will have to wait for an updated patch that will be released by Bethesda, as confirmed by one of the company’s representatives recently on Reddit:
“Hey all, I’m one of the DEATHLOOP Community Managers, and while those burgers do look great, regarding performance we are aware of reports that some PC users are experiencing stuttering issues in DEATHLOOP. We’re actively investigating the issue right now as a priority, and will update you with more specific information as soon as possible.”
