Bayonetta is an action game that follows the story of the last survivor of an ancient witch clan who keeps the balance between light, dark and chaos. The main character of the game, Bayonetta is discovered and revived after 500 years. Her revival triggers a series of events with cataclysmic consequences.

The only problem is that she doesn’t remember anything about her past. With a single clue available, she goes on a quest to discover who she really is. This process also involves fighting off hordes of enemies.

Bayonetta players also report that the game is affected y various technical issues, limiting the gaming experience. In this article, we’re going to list the most common issues reported by players.

Bayonetta reported bugs

  • FPS drops 

I run this game at the lowest settings possible, and I get 5-10fps. My PC was high end when i bought it. Surely tech doesn’t advance that fast? I am lost really… please give advice. I played this game with “Family Sharing.”

  • Game minimizes itself

If you’re experiencing this issue, update your graphics drivers and this should fix the problem.

When I launch the game, it minimizes itself. If I click on it, it minimizes itself again after one second, so I’m not able to change any configuration. I already checked the integrity of the cache.

  • Bayonetta won’t save

What is going on with this game? I can’t save it. When I go to the save game menu it won’t let me select a save slot. When I exit the game, I have to start from the beginning again. I can’t even find the chapter menu to select the chapter I was up too. Can anyone help?

  • Game crashes

[…] upon launch i see a window open and close instantly, I have checked the game files and validated but no luck…. If anyone is willing to help that would be great […]

  • Double screen in cinematics

I have a problem in cinematics with fixed images, I see a small screen in the upper left part, any know any solution for this error

  • Controller doesn’t work

I’ve got a Logitech wireless gamepad (F710). It works fine in Windows and in other games, but Bayonetta apparently only wants to accept keyboard and mouse input. The controller won’t navigate menus, select options, control the character, or really do anything at all.

These are the most frequent Bayonetta issues reported by gamers. If you’ve come across other bugs, use this Steam discussion page to provide the game’s developers with more details about the issues that you’ve encountered.
