Cyberpunk 2077 just got the new patch and update “2.1” which drops off a whole new metro system, and some fabulous in-game changes. But, players are also suffering from performance issues including FPS Drop or Low FPS in Cyberpunk 2077 2.1 after updating the game.
Why is Cyberpunk 2077 dropping FPS after the latest update?
Whenever a massive update drops for any game, it causes issues with the game files, resulting in lower performance than usual.
Also, sometimes the game might reset your settings to default which might be overwhelming for the system.
Fix for FPS Drop and Low FPS in Cyberpunk 2077 2.1 after update
To fix the issue, you need to head over to your in-game settings and change all of those to default, saving them as well.
After they are saved, you need to restart the system and get back inside the game. Now, change the settings to the preset you had before the update.
Save the settings afterward and close the game. Now, it is time to verify game files, so that the new update files are known by the Steam Library and fix any corrupted or missing files. To do that, follow the steps below.
- Start Steam
- Go to Steam Library
- Right Click on Cyberpunk 2077
- Go to Properties
- Head over to the Files Tab
- Click on “Verify integrity of game files”
Wait for a while and Steam will fix all the issues related to the game files. Ultimately, it will also fix FPS Drop and Low FPS in Cyberpunk 2077 2.1 after the update.
