Borderlands 3 suffers from stuttering issues and here is how you can minimize/fix them

Two days ago, we informed you about the long loading times in DX12 and the ultrawide issues in Borderlands 3. However, it appears that this new first-person shooter also suffers from major stuttering issues. Therefore, you can find below some ways via which you can minimize them (or even fix them).

The first thing you need to do is close the Epic Games Store launcher after going in-game. A great number of gamers has reported that this has resolved their stuttering issues with Borderlands 3. Furthermore, online functionalities are working properly so we suggest doing so if you have any stutters.

Some other users claimed that they were able to reduce the stutters they were experiencing by setting Texture Streaming on Low or Medium. On the other hand, some other users stated that they were able to reduce the stuttering issues by using a previous version of the GeForce drivers. For what it’s worth, we were able to play the game smoothly with the latest 436.30 drivers. While there were some minor frame pacing issues, our G-Sync monitor was able to smooth out the experience. Still, we experienced less frame pacing spikes when we closed the Epic Games Store launcher.

After taking ages to install, we were able to run the game and we did not experience any stuttering issues on our Intel i9 9900K with our NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080Ti. As said, we did close Epic Games Store when we went in-game. So yeah, it appears that this solution can work on certain systems. It’s also worth mentioning that we’ve installed the game on an SSD and we’re using 16GB of RAM at 3600Mhz.

Our PC Performance Analysis for Borderlands 3 will go live later this weekend. Until then, and if you are having any stuttering issues, we suggest using one of the aforementioned workarounds!
