Stuttering unplayable input lag

Last few days I have severe stuttering in the game. I see characters jitter back and forth, sometimes it takes 4 or 5 button presses to get an input to go through, and some times my character stutters and takes repeated damage from sources that arent there(ie: getting shot once might go “brrrrrrrr” and drain all my health).

My drivers are up to date and overall run at 40-60 fps on my settings since i bought the game. The stuttering isnt every day, but when it starts it doesnt stop for days. I never had these issues in VT2.

Please help. This is unplayable.


Same… I had to change worker threads down to 8 or 12 from 22… to lower stuttering.

Sometimes the game will stutter less on DLSS Auto then on Ultra Performance. RTX 3080 Ryzen 9 5900x…3440x1440 and Heresy runs same map perfectly, Damnation can be impossible to aim!

It makes no sense, a joke.

It’s lag on the server side not a problem with your computer.

So… any better on Steam? just asking should be same $h1tsh0w…

I’m on Steam and yes, same ssstttuuuttteer

SEA Server here,
Rarely happened. Like if I played everyday, only 1 of the 7 day it happened. And yes, it’s Hi-Intensity

  • rt_checkerboard_reflections = false
  • rt_light_quality = false
  • rt_mixed_reflections = false
  • rt_particle_reflections_enabled = false
  • rt_reflections_enabled = false
  • rt_shadow_ray_multiplier = 0
  • rt_transparent_reflections_enabled = false
  • rtxgi_enabled = false
  • rtxgi_scale = 0

IT NO LONGER STUTTERS after the above changes in .config file. Not on DAMNATION, NOT ON HI INTENSITY ANYTHING!

DO IT, as FaRtShark has to be awarded the MEDAL OF INCOMPETENCE!

RTX is ON all the time, even if you disable it in settings - because why not, they just advertise RTX 4080 in a twisted way - with an engine that barely functions properly on RT!

FARTSHARK is LIKE FACEBOOK ADS - no matter what you opt out of they’ll still push their cr4p your way!

This. It’s stutering because of server lag. When this happens (rarely) i got disconnected with 2001 server error after stutters.

You’re right on such instances, but what I described is severe FPS drops in various places, especially Damnation Hi-Int when hordes and big mobs show up, causing FPS drops to unplayable levels.

There is NO GAME I cannot play on rtx 3080 12GB, 32GB 3200Mhz and ryzen 9 5900X at 3440x1440 - and by that I mean I always put everything ULTRA. With 90-144fps / gsync on.

And I play anything in 60-65C CPU & GPU.

In Darktide everything LOW or OFF, DLSS ULTRA PERFORMANCE and the described FPS drops - well, I reserve the right to rage at these muppets, and a simple google search / will show I’m not alone!

Funny enough, those without RTX cards have no issues when dropping details… because it can’t enable RT !

AND I call them incompetent as it would FPS drop like MAD with GPU usage of 40-60%… just idiotic approach to release an Alpha version as a final version and have us, the players, find solutions!
