Your Performance Issues

Every single time I try to complete a level, the game just randomly crashes. This started happening after the bug fix, so it might be connected to that. I don’t use any mods, before the bug fix there were no problems with the game. I don’t think this is because of the computer, I can play every other game just fine.

THIS. I’ve found this happening to me at least a handful of times on different maps; I remember this happening on War Camp and lately I’ve noticed performance drops on Taal’s Keep when my camera is looking in the direction of all the potions (nearby all the dummies). I was trying to see if it had something to do with proximity to various pickups (like when I’m closer to the potions and looking at them it gives performance drops) but I know this isn’t the case. It really has something to do with what camera is looking at.

When I had this problem, I switched to DX11. That at least stops the screen stutters and freezes. But you will still drop down to 30-40fps during hordes. No idea why…

I’ve been having multiple issues since patch 3.3 released, none of the issues listed below I experienced before this patch was released.

The biggest issue I’m experiencing regards problems with character animations, as it is significantly altering my ability to play the game in some situations. I have noticed that reasonably frequently when enemies drop down from ledges, they pause (sometimes for up to a second or two) in their falling animation when they’ve already hit the floor before they start an attack or walk animation. I have had enemies freeze and just not do anything for multiple seconds (even ending up in a T-pose at one point). I have had my own character’s attack animations slow down at random (without taking a hit, so shouldn’t have been staggered). Most annoyingly, I have also experienced desynchronization of enemy attack animations and the physical damage the attack does; where I get hit by an attack that hasn’t visually happened yet (even as the host).

I have also had other issues with the game rendering correctly (without changing any in-game graphics settings) where starting the game multiple times drastically changes the appearance of the game in specific places. I have had issues with visual effects like the portal in the keep changing appearance between looking like just a hazy particle effect (without the globe portal shape), or appearing normally just as the globe portal shape as before the patch. Other things related to this I have experienced includes issues with culling of the environment, where the game was de-loading parts of the map that were actually still needed (that I was standing in very close proximity to and also looking straight at).

I have also experienced games where after finishing a map, the party gets taken back to the keep and it states “player X has left the game” but their character is still running around the keep and they are still talking in chat. When we went to play another game with the lobby in this state, the matchmaking system tried to make a 5th player join because the game simultaneously thought the lobby had both 3 and 4 players already in it; which caused issues.

I have even experienced all of these happening in a private game where I was playing with 3 bots because I was trying to fix my issues by changing the graphics settings at the time.

I always close all software that isn’t necessary before playing vermentide 2. While I’m playing, I normally have between 70 to 90 fps, which drops to ~60 fps in hordes (at worst). I try my best to play in games with less than 100 ping (if I am not hosting). I am having issues with all of the above both when I am both the host and client. Changing from DX12 to DX11 didn’t help. I have tried setting the pre-rendered frames manually to 1, which didn’t make a difference. Changing any other graphics settings hasn’t fixed my issue. I have verified the files through steam, tried disabling all my mods and even deleted and redownloaded the entire game to run it from an SSD. Nothing I have tried seems to help my problems, so I have reverted to my ‘normal’ settings.

I have uploaded multiple console logs where I was attempting to fix my issues by changing graphics settings; as this is where I was noticing the graphical glitches around the portal just in the case it may be useful.

Please do something about this, I want to play the game!

Switching from DX11 to 12 fixed the problem for me :slight_smile:

Since about a month ago I’ve been having some strange, seemingly random FPS drops.

I’ve read other replies about how they are having the drops and the reasoning doesn’t to apply to my case.
I don’t have FPS drops in Taal’s Keep, it so far only happens on missions.

The drops don’t appear to have any common cause. I’ve had large hordes where everything was fine and then my FPS would drop to sub-20 levels while I’m just walking around with no enemies in sight.
I’ve also had it occur at the beginning of The Enchanter’s Lair mission just walking towards the trap door. It’ll happen one time, but not another.
My system doesn’t look to be stressed when playing.

I don’t know if it has any relation, but it seemed to have started around the time I got the Grail Knight DLC near the end of October.
I’ll be doing some driver reinstalling and trying some other things to see if they help as well. If anyone had found any solution to similar situations please don’t hesitate to provide them.

p.s. I’m on DX12 and if I set it to DX11 I get a connection error when trying to load the game.

Started: I brought the game today and i’m having heavy FPS problems.


  • I start the game with 30 fps and when the horde comes i have 20/25 fps;
  • CPU is 70% and more busy because of Vermintide 2.

What I’ve tried to prevent this:

  • Lowered every single setting to Lowest;
  • switched from DX11 to DX12 (got higher fps but more painful stutters);
  • Increased the worker threads from 1 to 2 (and the number was red for some reason).

Hi there, new to the game! Have really been enjoying it aside from the frequent crashes I’ve been having. Hoping this can be fixed somehow because this has been one of my favorite games to play lately and would like to keep going.

@gumbylgm I’ve sent you a direct message regarding the crashes and your logs.
