Ghost Recon Wildlands Performance, Errors, Low FPS, Stuttering, SLI, Crashes and Related Problems

If it’d be up to Ubisoft only, they would make every game an open world game. With multiple open world IPs from Ubisoft already available, we now have Ghost Recon Wildlands to the list. The game had the biggest beta in company’s history and upon release, Ghost Recon Wildlands has managed to secure decent reviews.

However, Ubisoft doesn’t has a good reputation when it comes to game optimization, specially for PC. Ghost Recon Wildlands seems to be doing well so far with lesser players reporting performance related and other issues. Although the PC port is looking good, there are some issues that Ubisoft will need to address in the future.

In the meanwhile, you can browse trough the following troubleshooting listing to find the possible fixes for the common problems being faced by the game.

How to fix Ghost Recon Wildlands Performance, FPS, Errors and Crashes

#1 Ghost Recon Wildlands Performance Issues
Nvidia users mostly are facing low fps/performance issues. The problem can be associated with the availability of game ready drivers for Ghost Recon Wildlands. The Drivers should be out soon so keep any eye out for that. AMD however, has already released the drivers optimized for the game.

In the meanwhile, since Ghost Recon Wildlands is a graphics intensive game, make sure your PC is good enough to handle the high settings you are using. Sometimes, third party applications, including antivirus/firewalls/recording tools/ interfare withe game’s normal performance so make sure you try to disable them if you are encountering performance issues.

#2 Ghost Recon Wildlands Rewards Issue
If you have pre-ordered the game and having issue in getting the allotted rewards, you should try logging out and then logging back in as it seems to have worked for some.

#3 Ghost Recon Wildlands, Game Stuck at 99%
There are a few things you can try if your download is stuck at 99%. First, you need to restart your Steam and if the issue still persists, try deleting clientregisty.blob from your Steam client.

Sometimes, changing the download region from Steam can also help to fix the issue.

#4 Ghost Recon Wildlands SLI Issue
For now, there have been multiple reports of SLI being not working properly for Ghost Recon Wildlands. So if you are using, disable one GPU and you will get the optimum performance.

#5 Ghost Recon Wildlands Outdated Version error
This means that you don’t have the latest patch installed for the game. First thing you should do is restart Steam/Ubisoft. If that doesn’t work, try verifying your game files. Still no luck? If you have beta still installed, uninstall it and verify the game files again.

#6 Ghost Recon Wildlands Cover System Bug
The game doesn’t use the traditional shooter cover system so you might want to look into that. However, if it’s still not working, you should restart your game as it seems to have resolved the issue for some.

#7 Ghost Recon Wildlands Stuttering Fix
If you are experiencing stuttering issue during gameplay, you can try out the following:

  • Make sure that your screen’s refresh rate/resolution is same as that of game.
  • Some users have reported that unplugging the controller fixes the issue. Weird, I know but the reports are there.
  • Also, if you are running the game in border-less windowed mode, try using the full screen mode.
