How to fix Sniper Elite 4 errors, crashes, bugs, performance issues, fps issues, sound issues and other related problems.

Sniper Elite 4 series has been there for a while now and has managed to gather a descent fan-base. Continuing the tradition, Rebellion Developments has released Sniper Elite 4 and I have to say, the game is more than just another iteration. The developer has added a lot of improvements from the predecessor and overall, Sniper Elite 4 is a solid 3rd person stealth shooter to have.

From the technical point of view, the game is not doing bad either however, since it’s a PC game too, there are some issues that have been reported by the users. I am sure that Rebellion will address those issues in time but in the meanwhile, if you are facing any issue, you can refer to the following guide.

Sniper Elite 4 Errors, Crashes, Bugs and Their Fixes

#1 Sniper Elite 4 Download Stuck
If restarting the download isn’t working, you should try to change the download region via Steam. Restart Steam and the problem should be resolved.

#2 Sniper Elite 4 Stuttering Issue, FPS Drop
First thing you should do is enable Vsync in the game settings. If that doesn’t help, make sure that your are using the latest GPU drivers.

#3 Sniper Elite 4 SLI Issues
You need to update your drivers to the version that were released recently by Nvidia. You could also use Sniper Elite 3 profile as it seems to be working fine with the game.

#4 Sniper Elite 4 DirectX Crash Issue
For the time being, there have been reports of SLI not working with DX 12. So if your game is crashing DX 12, try running the game in DX 11 with one card. However, if you update your drivers to the latest, the DX 12 version should work just fine.

#5 Sniper Elite Sound Jitters Issue
If you are experiencing sound issues in Sniper Elite 4, you should set audio reverb quality to off from the launcher. This should fix your sound issues.

#6 Sniper Elite 4 – Game Does Not Load
There are a couple of things you can try to fix the issue. First, make sure that you have sufficient free space on your hard drive. Also, you should try running the game as admin. You could also try running the game in different compatibility mode.

And yes, if DX 12 isn’t working, you can always try to run the game in DX 11 mode. If it’s a DX issue, you should update your drivers.

#7 Sniper Elite 4 – Directx 10 Compatibility
Well, the game does not support directx 10 officially so if your game is not running and you own a directx 10 limited card, it’s probably time to upgrade.
