Sniper Ghost Warrior 3

Sniper Ghost Warriors series is well known for its tactical gameplay. The first two iterations in the series were good enough apparently to justify Sniper Ghost Warrior 3.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, unlike its predecessors, is an open world game and players have the freedom to explore the world and do the side activities the world has to offer. However, the open world introduction hasn’t worked that well for the game as the game has only managed to secure average or below average reviews. But if you are a fan of the genre and series, then you should definitely get it.

From the technical point of view, the game also has its problems. In the open world areas, you will abundantly experience the frame-rate drops. These FPS drops are also there in dense gun fights. The game will feel smoother, however, when you are trying to snipe a target from afar. As far as errors and bugs are concerned, there aren’t many issues with the game in this regard. But if you are looking to troubleshoot something, you can check out the following fixes we have shortlisted for common problems in Sniper Ghost Warrior 3.

#1 Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Long Loading Time
Ghost Warrior 3’s loading times is being discussed on different platforms and almost every player has reported that they are experiencing a very long loading times (around 5 minutes mostly when you boot up the game from the menu). This issue is even acknowledged by CI games and they have told the community that it’s a design decision rather than a problem. Where does it benefit? Well, as compensation, you will get relatively shorter loading times during reloads and after deaths. I am not sure really if the trade-off is worth it but you will have to bear with that I guess.

#2 Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Keybindings Issues
Some gamers don’t follow the traditional WASD key style and always customize them before starting the game. That is why key bindings and customization has become an important feature in almost all the PC games. Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 has a key binding issue but luckily, the developer has acknowledged the issue and they are working on a fix so expect an update to come out soon.

#3 Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Performance Issues
There have been some reports, especially by AMD users about the poor performance of the game. If you experiencing a similar issue, then you should update your GPU drivers immediately as it seems to have fixed the performance related issues for many.

#4 Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 FOV Tweak
If you want to change FOV in the game, you will have to do some config file tweaking. The config file you are looking for can be found in \Sniper Ghost Warrior 3\GameSDK\ by the name of game.cfg. Open it using notepad and look for values that say have FOV in them. Change the values (two of them) and save the changes. Start the game again and the FOV will be changed.

#5 Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Steam Cloud Issue
If your steam cloud saving system is not working then it’s not the problem with as the feature hasn’t been patch yet into the game. CI games has assured that with future patches, the Steam cloud save system will also be introduced in the game.
