A new bug in Valve’s Counter Strike Global Offensive has irritated many players who are now desperately looking for a viable option. Astralis pro player, Lucas “Bubzkji” Andersen has a temporary fix until Valve comes through with a patch.
CSGO new fps bug in low settings
Competitive players of the CSGO understand the value of high frame rates. Players often play at the lowest settings to get the most out of their PCs and sacrifice beauty to performance.
Tailoring settings is a reliable solution to maximize performance and achieve the highest frame rate possible. However, the competitive experience has been tarnished by the new bug.
CSGO fps bugs may arise from CPU and GPU bottlenecks, server issues, client issues, and sometimes other memory-saving programs. Lower graphic settings reduce the chances of noticeable frame drops. However, players complain that there is still a new glitch in low settings, too.
Even CSGO players with strong PCs lost FPS in the middle of the game. They would connect to the game and, after a few rounds, the frame rate would drop dramatically.
While players have found a fix to reset in-game resolution, this is not the most convenient option. The bug successfully squeezed the fun out of the shooter as Valve still didn’t identify the problem.
How to fix CSGO FPS drop bug – Bubzkji
Astralis’ professional player Bubzkji came forward with a quick CSGO fps bug fix to the issue.
The Danish pro explained that a simple console command could bypass the problem. Here’s how to fix the problem when a sudden CSGO fps drop bug occurs:
-Go to Options settings for Game.
-Activate console (~)
-Go back to the game and press the tilde key (~)
-A console command will appear on your screen.
-Type logadress add1 and click enter
This command should refresh the frame rate after a few minutes and ease the problem for a short time. This is not a long term fix and frame rates could still soar as a result of this bug, but these console commands can help players temporarily.
While most players are just finding out about the FPS issue, several players have confirmed that the issue has been around for years. This discussion comes at a good time, as Valve has been on a recent update, actively delivering new patches.
This bug needs immediate attention on the part of the developers, as framerates play a critical part in shooter games. For now, players can use the console command while Valve finds a fix.
