Steps to Reproduce:
I thought the issue was that my SSD is plugged into my graphics amplifier so I plugged it into my laptop directly and still had the same issue. I thought the issue was the extreme graphics setting overloading the ram or vram so I lowered the graphics and resolution and it kept happening.

Hi Mackeviallean. Let’s start by making sure there isn’t some other program interfering with your input. A ‘Selective Startup’ can help diagnose whether a background application is resulting in your issue. This can be performed by:

  1. Press the Windows key
  2. Type ‘msconfig’ and select ‘System Configuration’
  3. On the ‘General’ tab, select ‘Selective Startup’
  4. Deselect ‘Load startup Items’
  5. Reboot your PC
  6. Launch Vermintide 2 as normal

Should you still lose control, then we know it isn’t another application at fault. However, if the issue no longer persists after having performed the Selective Startup, you will need to re-enable each of your usual background applications one-by-one until the problem reoccurs, to determine which is interfering with your character movement.
