Back 4 Blood Character movement choppy & stuttering: Fixes?
So, even if you have maxed out on FPS, your character movement still appears choppy in Back 4 Blood. Worry not, as it is not your system or hardware. The choppy character movement is one of the most heavily reported bugs in Back 4 Blood. The bug seems to affect only the character movement. According to players, the character movement seems very unnatural and stutters like the game is skipping frames. It looks like only the character movement is running at 30 fps while other parts of the game are running at high frame rates. This issue was also reported in the beta phase of the game. According to a report, the bug only affected the crouching movement in beta. However, now, the entire movement of the character appears choppy.
Makes it seem like the game is skipping frames, everything is smooth once you’re actually moving in a direction for a moment, it’s the intial movement / acceleration and change of direction that seems as though it shifts the camera around too much.
The developers haven’t acknowledged the issue yet. Unfortunately, there aren’t any workarounds/fixes to this issue. It is completely an internal problem with optimization. Back 4 Blood is a decent video game. But, the developers have to start addressing all the glaring issues if they don’t want the player base to die out.
