Ghostrunner PS4 Screen Tearing, Stutter, and Bad Graphics Fix

Ghostrunner is now available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, users of the Sony system are reporting bad screen tearing, stutter, and graphics all around. This is apparently the case for both the standard PS4 and the more powerful PS4 Pro. Here’s how to fix the Ghostrunner PS4 performance problems.

How to fix Ghostrunner PS4 screen tearing and stutter

Ghostrunner PS4 Screen Tearing

Ghostrunner is all about fast and fluid movement, as the player outflanks the enemy to take them down in a single hit. If the game isn’t running properly, as is reportedly the case for many PS4 players, then that experience is compromised. PS4 and PS4 Pro performance issues need a quick fix!

To fix Ghostrunner on PS4 and PS4 Pro, players can try the following:

  • Ensure the latest update has been installed.
    • Highlight the game at the PS4’s home screen.
    • Push the “Options” button on the controller.
    • Select “Check for update.”
  • If you’re on PS4 Pro, disable Supersampling.
    • Go to Settings > Video Output Settings > Supersampling Mode
    • Disable Supersampling Mode to see if that improves performance in Ghostrunner.

Those still experiencing screen tearing, low resolution, low frame-rates, and/or bad graphics will need to wait for developer intervention. Thankfully, the One More Level devs have confirmed that they “are working on a patch that will fix [the PS4] issue.”

There’s no confirmed release date for the new Ghostrunner update, but hopefully it is deployed sooner rather than later!

Those wondering just how many missions there are in Ghostrunner can find all level details (without spoilers) in this guide. It includes mission names and how long it should take players to beat the game.

Though performance is currently bad on PS4 and PS4 Pro, the Game Revolution review of the PC version praises the game for “responsive controls,” “incredible pacing,” and more.
