This bug has been listed as acknowledged from December last year, but despite being something that is acknowledged by the team, not a single thing has been done to resolve this problem. It’s not even listed as a known issue, so I’ll post it again since I would love to have the game look normal for the first time in my playtime at some point.
Mesh streaming does not work for certain users that have Ryzen CPUs. Objects including weapons, armor and characters appear in horribly low quality with broken geometry that in no way looks correct. The issue can be temporarily solved by disabling mesh streaming in the config file, but doing this makes the game completely unplayable due to low framerate. So the choices to users afflicted with this problem is to play with horrific framerate, or play with most of the models in the game looking broken.
If having low quality models isn’t a big enough issue to be even added into the known bugs section, some weapons even lose their ironsights/crosshairs entirely, making aiming difficult. This is a legitimate gameplay issue now, not just graphics.
