In almost any game, players can experience a lot of input lag. This can happen due to a number of reasons, buy generally, there are quite a few things you can do to mitigate this issue.
Usually, the in-game settings need to be tweaked a bit in order to lower input lag as much as possible. This will vary from game to game, but the basic premise is usually the same.
In addition to that, there are a few settings that can be tweaked outside the game on PC. Most of the time, this aren’t as impactful as the in-game settings, but it is still worth to do.
How to Fix Input Lag for Mouse & Controller – Cyberpunk 2077
For controllers, navigate to your Cyberpunk 2077 settings and then go to controls. Scroll-down until you see First-Person Camera (Controller).
Make sure to turn on Advanced Options. Then, lower Horizontal and Vertical Turning Bonus to 0!
Next, in your settings, navigate to the Video Tab. Turn off V-Sync here. Also, it is very important to make sure that the resolution you’re using is the native resolution that your monitor supports, or lower.
From Video, go to the Graphics Tab. Scroll-down to Resolution Scaling and turn Static FidelityFX CAS.
Generally, the more FPS you have, the less input lag you will have. So, in order to lower that as much as possible, make sure to lower graphics settings and resolution if you are getting below 50 FPS.
It will be far better to play the game on less quality, but more FPS.
PC Mouse Settings
- Open your Start Menu and search for “Mouse Settings”.
- Click on Additional Mouse Options on the right of the window.
- Navigate to Pointer Options and make sure that “Enhance Pointer Precision” is disabled!
Frankly, that’s all that you can do to decrease input lag in Cyberpunk 2077. However, I cannot stress enough how higher framerates equal less input lag.
With that said, the fixes above only decrease input lag by a small bit. If you truly want to decrease it, then lowering your graphics settings is the way to go.
