NieR: Automata is a game that follows the story of three androids: 2B, 9S and A2. The game is set in a world where humanity has been driven away from the Earth by mechanical beings from another world. Humanity’s last hope is a force of android soldiers whose goal is to destroy the invaders. If the androids win the war, then humans can take back the planet. If not, they are doomed forever.

NieR: Automata is a fun and challenging game to play, but it’s also affected by quite a few technical issue, as players report. In order to avoid severe technical issues, don’t forget to check the system requirements before you buy the game.

NieR Automata: reported bugs

1. Low FPS rate

Players report that NieR: Automata is sometimes affected by FPS drops, especially during the cutscenes.

Is anyone else getting framerate drops during the cutscenes, i’m guessing they are loading game assets while the cutscene is playing

2. Camera issues

Gamers are also annoyed by the fact that the camera’s automatic adjustments won’t turn off.

It sucks. Idk, but every time I tried to turn the sight, that camera automatically adjusted itself. Any ideas to cancel this automatic adjustments? Need to know it badly, without it it’s a pain to use keyboards and mice.

3. White screen crashes

Many players report that NieR: Automata sometimes crashes to a white screen when they’re using various weapons. Troubleshooting actions, such as changing the graphics settings or using windowed mode don’t help at all.

I have an Rx 470 , updated drivers, AA off V sync off. White screen crash when using weapons. happens on all graphic settings, and also when in windowed or full screen, also tried using “borderless Gaming: app no luck. was super excited to play tonight…

4. Denuvo crashes

Denuvo is not very popular among gamers, as many strongly believe that the tool can cause various technical issues. According to recent gamer reports, it seems that Denuvo is to blame for a series of NieR Automata crashes.

So i start the game, it immediately crashes, I try to debug it and it says there is some problem with denuvo. Do we get some kind of CD key from Steam? I downloaded the game, unzipped it and then just ran it, and it just crashes…

5. Micro-stutters

It appears that NieR: Automata sometimes stutters for a few seconds even on stable 60 FPS.

I’m mostly having stable 60 FPS, but the game ‘stutters’ every ~5-7 seconds or so. Anyone else is getting this?

6. Game freezes

Players report that NieR: Automata often freezes on computers equipped with the GTX 780 Ti GPU, although the game continues to run in the background.

it seems me and many others with this graphics card are facing a problem where the game image will freeze or go white but the game will still run in the background. if anyone has found a solution this would be a good place to post it.

7. Game won’t save

Losing game progress is one of the worst nightmares among gamers. Unfortunately, NieR: Automata won’t always save your game progress due to save file issues.

I ♥♥♥♥ing played the game 6 hours turned it off and now when i turned it on again i dont have any save files […] I quick saved the game multiple times at least 10

8. Settings return to default

Customizing your game may prove to be more difficult than expected. Players report that when they start a new game, all their previous settings are reverted to default.

Title. Whenever I start the game, all the changes I’ve done in the options are reseted to default, like the custom controller mapping, the graphics and camera direction. Anyone else?

These are the most frequent NieR: Automata issues reported by gamers. If you’ve come across any workarounds to fix the bugs listed above, feel free to list the troubleshooting steps in the comment section below.
