Less than an hour ago, a title update for Call of Duty: WWII was rolled out by Sledgehammer Games. While we’re waiting for the official patch notes, some changes are plainly obvious; such as Headquarters mode now being optional, and having its own slot in the menus.
Unfortunately, there’s a drawback to this little feature; multiple users (and I’ve experienced it first-hand as well) have reported massive stuttering when entering Headquarters mode. If you’re experiencing the same, don’t fret! There’s a super quick fix! Reddit user CarterIsDad managed to find a workaround and it involves Theater mode!
If you can’t see the Reddit post, it reads:
Go to Theater, watch any video in theater, leave the theater, and frame rate should stabilize.
Note that you do NOT need to finish the video at all, and it should work. I’ve tested it, and it brings HQ frame-rates back to normal levels.
We’ll check COD: WWII more to see what else has changed, or what new bugs have been accidentally introduced. In the meantime, if you spot any, let us know down in the comments so your fellow soldiers can know, and knowing is half the battle.
