The FPS formula is back, with Rage 2, the game brought to us by Avalanche Studios and id Software.
The game picks up after 30 years from the original events of Rage, featuring a more open world, new abilities, a new roster of weapons and skills that can be tuned to fit your play style.
As we’ve learned across the years, no game launch can be deemed flawless, and Rage 2 is no exception. We covered some of the most common Rage 2 bugs, but we’ll expand the list as the new bugs show up.
What are the most common Rage 2 bugs?
1. Audio bugs
There are instances when the audio simply cuts out, or some NPC’s are unable to initiate dialogue with the protagonist.
Frequent audio dropouts. Cannot talk to certain NPC’s, the guy who sells maps at Gunbarrel and also Dr Kvasir which is a gamebreaker.
2. Game crashing
Being able to play for extended periods of time is a must, but some players have experienced the game crashing while going through the notes menu.
Here’s a couple of more I noticed: Game crashes when going through notes menu for extended time
3. Game stutter
There are reports in regards to the game stuttering at various points.
That stutter issue persists through all the zones no matter if I’ve traveled to them or not. Kinda kills the driving combat for me.
4. Graphical issues
Some users have had issues with the game’s temporal anti-aliasing, causing some problems along the way.
My biggest problem is the awful TAA, please Avalanche do something! The mouse seems a little screwy as well, people are reporting negative acceleration.

Manually updating the drivers might not get you the best results and it can be time consuming. You could be forced to look for the correct driver on the manufacturer’s website.
But if you want to get rid of all the headaches, you can quickly update all outdated drivers automatically, by using a third-party tool like the one recommended below.
