It’s not a long-term solution, but one Cyberpunk 2077 player has found a way to deal with game performance on the console.

Although it was an undeniable financial success, the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 has been plagued by all sorts of problems, which is the most notorious of all. Performance on the console, more specifically the base PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Among broken graphics, inconsistent frame rates, and other technical issues, CD Projekt must apologize for releasing the game in such a state and even offers refunds.

Dissatisfied PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners may already be using this offer, but one player has discovered a trick that may be useful to anyone who wants to continue playing the game for the foreseeable future. did.

Redditor joshmaaaaaaans was first outlined on the Cyberpunk 2077 Reddit page, but I’ve found that shooting in the air in crowded areas can improve the frame rate of the console version.

When this happens, nearby characters are clearly scattered in horror and panic, but when the player looks away from them and immediately looks back, those characters disappear altogether.

Also, if fewer characters are displayed on the screen at one time, the frame rate will be significantly smoother. At least, it’s much closer to the expected 30 frames per second.

Useful, but it’s not a permanent solution to the problem and doesn’t fix the myriad other problems that plague the game.

CD Projekt guarantees fans that it will release patches over the next few months to fix these issues, but whether these are enough to get the player back is a completely different matter.

The studio will also release games for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S. We hope these versions are relatively bug-free and run smoothly, as the console runs on more powerful hardware.

Cyberpunk 2077 is available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Stadia. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S versions are planned for 2021.
