I wish my Xbox didn’t give me a notification that a new update was ready because it ruined the experience for sure. This patch brings framerate stability issues or whatever it is to at least Xbox Series X and S.
Every few seconds, sometimes ten, sometimes longer it freezes for a second or two and then goes on again. You can imagine this being very annoying in the middle of a battle or just in general. I make this thread in the hope that the devs see this, because I would say it’s kinda unplayable this way.
Same here. Series X. My game froze twice now, and I’ve been getting really bad frame drops when fighting large mobs.
Original XB1 here, and I did have several hiccups with the Cartels event active. I think it’s the extra spawns and VFX that exacerbate existing problems - existing spawn points suddenly get denser mobs when the beacons go off. I’m not sure there’s any work-around on console other than adjusting mayhem modifiers - I remember the first time around, it was Cartels + Drones that gave me my first solid crash.
I’m channeling my gamer energy towards you guys, so that PC parts may become cheap enough for y’all to secure one.
Or you can use that energy for next gen consoles too.
Just don’t do anything nefarious with it!
Same on my series X. Almost like a loading stutter every now and again. My brother in law just messaged me saying the same thing on his series X too.
Every time we get a patch GBX just breaks things.
Well so much for the “get a newer console” argument that I have been told a few times on this forum but those were having issues as well long before this current patch. To my knowledge these things have to pass certification before they are released to the public unless I am mistaken and if that is true how did this manage to be okay? Just another baffling thing in a long line of baffling things regarding BL3.
And even on PC If I use the quit to desktop button, it hard crashes the game. UI with those weapon models still take their sweet time loading, and it’s absolutely disgusting trying to scroll through a full vault. And I got a damn good PC, granted I think it runs better on AMD gpus.
It’s just the game at this point.
It’s happening in non mayhem also.
I forgot to mention that I play solo, so no co-op, no other players, not online.
I noticed a change as soon as the main menu appears and things take longer to load and there I already see the hiccups.
I event went back to Pandora just to see if it was something with Promethea but nope, the freezes happen there too.
It’s at least good to know nothing is wrong with my XSX.
Never had any problems on my Series X until today. That has nothing to do with the consoles. It’s GB’s incompetence as usual. Seriously, after two years they haven’t figured out how to deliver a clean patch. I don’t get it.
Same here on Xbox series S
Same loading hiccup. Series X - happens every 20 or so seconds. Really messes up the flow of the action and it’s a brand new, update created issue.
Also, from start menu where you check mail, when you come back to the game, it throws a random grenade, lol. Completely repeatable error. Start, bumper over to mail, shift code area or whatever, return to game - unintentional grenade toss.
Strange. It’s almost as if GBX doesn’t test their work. Nah, can’t be.
Same issue yet, played better on one x than series x. Fix please
WOW, I mean just WOW, so this patch didn’t fix the Daily Challenges already showing as completed and not introduces me to a new bug, when I launch my echo menu it is half way off the top of the screen. Along the top can only see the lower half of the menu bar. Way to GearBox you are batting 0 for two patches now. Seriously fix the bugs first, then add some real content. I am even will to pay for a 3rd season pass but please give us some DLC and new characters to play. It is going to be another 4 years before BL4 will come out.
I’m running on pc and with the new update I’m suddenly getting lots of stuttering, sanctuary is terrible at the moment as the stuttering is so bad.
My pc can handle this game no problem it’s just after the update the stuttering started and it’s pretty annoying
I just bought bl3 for my series S. And it worked great before the patch this morning. Now I’m getting lag every few mins, during fight and even just trying to talk to an npc. Hopefully they fix it soon. I just just bought it 3 days ago. What a downer
Same issue here, patch made the game run really bad on my Series X now, had no stuttering issues before the patch.
Getting occasional stuttering as well (had no issues before patch). Fun fact I was playing around with some shields and found out that the stuttering may be affecting the super soldier.
I am glad they fixed the crazy stacking of buffs to the point I can’t control my char, but now it seems to inexplicably blink the shield while it’s up randomly allowing damage through. Guessing it has to do with the performance. I’m going to record some runs to see what is happening when the damage gets through while shielded is up later. Also, mayhem modifiers (lasers, chains, etc.) all get through the shield now.
Even on my PC is getting hard to finish some activities, I went to Slaughtermania 3000 and the difficulty was set to Mayhem 8… I don’t even have Mayhem on. Some kill missions, once you get the boss to 5% health, they go full health again completely bugged to say the least. and the lagging issue is so annoying, I’ll just wait for the game to stabilize.
