Division 2 Performance Guide – Fix Lag, FPS Drops, Bugs and Stuttering

ABOUT THE GAME

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is an online action RPG title by Ubisoft. It is a direct sequel to the original Tom Clancy’s The Division which was released almost three years ago.

The game is a Third-person shooter which takes place in Washington D.C. 7 months after its predecessor, in which a civil war between survivors and villainous bands of marauders, who are also known as Hyenas, breaks out. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 features both PvE and PvP, players can squad up with each other to complete missions. The game will also feature raids, which can be completed by up to 8 players.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 runs quite smooth for most of the time but that cannot take away the fact that it is a pretty heavy game. And the reason for that is it’s massive and heavily detailed open world. Players are coming across a lot of situations where the frames are taking quite a dip. There might not be a lot of stuttering but the FPS lag is quite prominent.  Here is how you can fix any sort of lag, FPS drops, bugs and stuttering in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2:
