Back 4 Blood Large Steam Friend List Causing Stuttering Fix

Over the course of the beta, the large Steam friend list problem was largely reported and a workaround emerged and while the fix did work a hundred percent at the time, it’s not the case in the final release. So, with some luck, the below fix may work for you. Here is what you need to do.

  1. While you are at the Camp in the game, disconnect the internet.
  2. When you are logged out and see the title screen, reconnect the internet
  3. You will be required to login again.
  4. Once you login the stuttering should be gone.

At the time of writing this is the only solution that you can try to fix the Back 4 Blood large Steam friend list causing the stutter. Your other options are to delete the majority of your friend, which most players will be unwilling to do.

The next best thing is to refund the game from your current account, create a new Steam account, buy the game from the new account and play without adding any new friends or fewer friends. Add the friends you know will be playing the game with you. Although this workaround is a bit of work, it does fix the stutter and offers a smooth gaming experience and you don’t have to lose your current friends.
