Outriders – FPS Cap after Cutscenes – How to remove the FPS Lock

Is your in-game framerate getting locked or capped at 60 fps after every cutscene in Outriders? Here is how to fix it.

FPS is getting capped or locked at 60 fps after cutsenes in Outriders for a lot of players

One of the biggest titles of 2021, Outriders is finally out across all current gen and next gen platforms. The game is wonderful (Personal opinion) and fans of games like Destiny 2, Borderlands 3, The Division, etc, should definitely try it once.

Despite being a great title, Outriders has its fair share of problems. Players have been complaining about performance issues, bugs and errors constantly. Not to mention, the frequent disconnections and server problems. Let’s just say, the launch has not been the smoothest. People Can Fly still has a long way to go with this game.

But there is this one bug that keeps happening almost every time I play the game, and it is extremely annoying. The framerate of Outriders gets locked or capped at 60 fps after every cutscene. And the funny thing is, this happens even after turning off the FPS limit. This has been happening to me and many other players for a while now. Fortunately, I have managed to figure out a temporary fix for the time being.

How to remove the FPS Cap

I was almost about to give up on this game due to this bug. I mean, I am playing on a 240hz monitor and I have a RTX 3070. And the last thing I need is to remain stuck at 60 fps on my 240hz monitor.

In order to fix the bug, just press Esc and go to Options. Go the Display tab. Set your Windowed Mode to “Window” and apply the settings. Then set it back to “Fullscreen” and apply the settings again.

And that is all you need to. Before I found this fix, I was actually restarting the game every time to fix the issue. But this method is far better.
