If Name of Responsibility: Warzone has been feeling sluggish over the previous couple of days, it’s most likely not your PC’s fault. Gamers far and vast have been reporting critical drops in efficiency because the Season 4 Reloaded patch launched yesterday, with many experiencing framerate drops between 20-30 fps on Warzone’s latest map, Vondel.

“I’ve solely performed Vondel up to now and I’m getting fps within the 40s and 30s, I used to be getting 70 fps earlier than the update,” wrote Cautious_Incident_46 on the Warzone subreddit. “I’ve set my game on the bottom graphical settings potential and nonetheless get horrid fps.”

It looks like the identical issues exist for gamers on high-end techniques, too. One redditor with a PC so extravagant it might cowl my lease for months (4090, i9 13900KS, 64GB DDR5) says they’ve been steadily experiencing worsening Warzone efficiency since January, with this week’s update being the worst degradation but.

“With this new patch, I’m right down to 100 fps with tons of variation between 90-120. That is lower than that of a present era console,” wrote consumer bupivacaine. “That is completely embarrassing … This most up-to-date patch has rendered the game borderline unplayable on PC.”

Whereas I don’t see how operating something at 100+ fps could possibly be thought of “unplayable,” it’s a actual downside. Of us are cranking down their graphics settings to the naked minimal and nonetheless seeing the identical drops, so this most likely falls extra below a bug than an optimization determination we’re caught with. 

Fortunately, Warzone lead studio Raven Software program is conscious of the efficiency points and is investigating options, in keeping with its offical Trello board. Vondel appears to be the worst perpetrator, so avoiding that map would possibly assist till there’s a correct repair.
