Fix WWE 2K22 Screen Tearing Issue

WWE 2K22 is finally out as the game took a big leap forward as compared to its prequel, WWE 2K20. The last installment failed to achieve the player’s expectation and received a lot of negative reviews and resulting in the cancellation of the WWE 2K21 to further allow the team to focus more on the WWE 2K22 instead.

This year, with the new 2K22, it seems that the extra development for the game has been paid off. The game now has so much to offer rather than just a roster update that 2K used to do every year. This year they bought in the new game modes, simpler control scheme and much better visuals as compared to any other WWE game released so far. We are having a lot of fun playing it until we run into some issues which are pretty common in newly launched games nowadays.

There are certain complaints regarding the screen tearing issues which I experienced while playing the game. And since this game doesn’t have the V-sync option, so it is a bit confusing to understand how to fix the screen tearing issue. But oddly there is a V-Sync line in the Config file which is set to On by default. But it is not the case, because if it was on, then we wouldn’t have faced any screen tearing issues at all.

So in this article, we will guide you on how to fix the screen tearing issues in WWE 2K22. The only thing that you will be needing here is either an Nvidia Graphics Card or an AMD Graphics along with all the proper supported software for each of those GPUs that you need to download (or downloaded) from the brand’s website and install it properly.
