Method 1: Update your video card drivers

If your machine meets minimum specifications, you can check whether you have the latest video card driver. Outdated graphics drivers may cause the “Fallout 76 stuttering” issue. So you can try to update the video card driver to fix the problem.

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update the driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):

  2. Run Driver Easy and click Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).  
  4. Run Fallout 76 and check whether the problem is solved or not.

Method 2: Run Fallout 76 as administrator

The privilege issue might be the reason for this problem. With high integrity access, Fallout 76 can make full use of its features, so run the game as an administrator to see if this fixes your issue.

  1. Exit Fallout 76.
  2. Right-click on the Fallout 76 icon and click Properties
  3. Under the Compatibility tab, tick Run this program as an administrator. Then click OK.  
  4. Run Fallout 76 and check whether the problem is solved or not.

Method 3: Check your antivirus software

Sometimes your antivirus software may be the reason for the Fallout 76 stuttering issue. So, disable your antivirus software and try downloading again to check if the issue persists.

If this resolves your problem, you may need to replace your antivirus software or contact the vendor of the software for advice.

IMPORTANT: Be extra careful about what sites you visit, what emails you open and what files you download when your antivirus software is disabled.

Method 4: Edit configuration files

To fix the shuttering issue, you can edit the files to fix it. This method has been proved by many users. Follow the steps below.

  1. Navigate to the C:\Users\username\Documents\mygames\fallout 76.
  2. Open the fallout4Prefs file.
  3. Change the default value 1 to 0
    iPresentInterval=0
  4. Save the changes and relaunch the game.
