Edit: Previous video was pish. Made it at 3am, so I recorded a much better video the now: https://youtu.be/AW4wgC1f-10
Hitching when panning the camera: https://youtu.be/AW4wgC1f-10?t=83
Edit2: Recorded two more videos, elaborating on the stutter.
First half of this video is recorded with the fps limited in-game to 30, which shows the abrupt hitches and stutters. Second half is at 60fps: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpIqfKxKqsI
This video shows the stutter happening when moving back and forth across an NPC camp. When reaching specific parts of the scene, the stuttering occurs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIdXjLvfqLU

The first minute is footage of me panning the camera back and forth, which increases the likelihood of a stutter occurring. The next minute is where I just run and sprint normally.
As you can see, it’s horrid. The game will stutter every few seconds when in movement. But when not moving nor panning the camera? The game is smooth as silk The weirdest part, is that this behaviour is 100% the same on a fresh install of Windows 10 LTSC 2019, which I just installed in a vain hope a fresh OS install would clear this up. Unfortunately not.
This issue did not occur when I previously played, with the exact same hardware and OS install, back around November with a couple of friends. They have NVidia GPUs, and after asking them to join my server and see if there was any stutter for them, they didn’t suffer this frequent stuttering.
The GPU driver plays no role in the stuttering. When using a newer vs older driver, there’s no difference. Changing every setting to off, on, or default, also makes no difference. Using a clean install of Windows 10 LTSC 2019 also makes no difference.
I’ve tested modded multiplayer with my server, vanilla multiplayer, modded single player, and vanilla single player. The issue persists with the exact same severity.
Same thing with Battleeye vs no Battleeye. The issue is unaffected by the anti-cheat. So no luck there either.
Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
- Use an AMD Vega 56 GPU
- Get in-game, doesn’t matter if single player or multiplayer.
- Sprint across the game map, optionally panning the camera to look around
- The game will hitch for an instant every couple seconds if panning the camera, or after about 6-8 seconds when just sprinting without changing the camera
