If XDefiant is stuttering while you’re trying to rush the objective, then we’ve got some solutions you can try to get things back to normal.

XDefiant just released, or maybe you sat down a while after launch with a long day behind you and a long night of gaming ahead. And then as soon as you join a match, XDefiant decides it has a stuttering issue with no end in sight.

Well, no matter what kind of rig you're rocking, we've got a solution for you to fix the problem.

Fixes for if XDefiant is stuttering

If your XDefiant is stuttering, there are certainly some things you can do to resolve it. You'll have to try a couple of fixes to determine exactly what the issue is, but one of the following should do the trick.

Close out background programs

This one is pretty obvious. If you have too much going on with your computer, then XDefiant doesn't have the necessary resources to run properly.

All of the background programs take away from what XDefiant needs to be a smooth game, thus causing the stuttering.

You can go to your Task Manager to force some things shut or simply try it by just closing any browsers or other windows that are open.

Adjust your graphics settings

XDefiant might launch with graphics settings it thinks your computer can handle. Sometimes, that isn't the case.

If XDefiant is stuttering as you try to play, then swapping to lower graphics can help prevent it. Go in and move things down one, such as from High to Medium or from Medium to Low.

Be sure to apply the new settings, close your game, and maybe even restart your computer. It doesn't hurt to have a fresh start with this solution.
