Why Do Graphical Bugs Occur in WWE 2K23?
Graphical bugs or visual artifacts in WWE 2K23 can occur due to several reasons. By identifying the cause of the problem, you can take the necessary steps to fix the issue and enjoy a smooth gaming experience. Here are some common causes of graphical glitches in the game.
Game files corruption: Corrupted game files can also cause graphical glitches in WWE 2K23. This can happen due to malware, system crashes, or other issues that can affect the game files.
Outdated or corrupted GPU drivers: If your GPU drivers are outdated or corrupted, it can lead to graphical bugs in the game.
Overclocked GPU: Overclocking your GPU can also cause graphical glitches in WWE 2K23. The game may not be able to handle the high clock speed, leading to visual artifacts.
Incompatible hardware: If your hardware is not compatible with the game's graphics requirements, you may experience graphical glitches.
Overheating: Overheating of the GPU or CPU can also cause graphical glitches. When your system gets too hot, it can affect the performance of your hardware, leading to visual artifacts in the game.
Another reason why graphical bugs can occur in WWE 2K23 is due to a problem with the game itself. The game may have bugs or glitches that cause visual artifacts or other graphical issues. This is not uncommon in video games, especially at launch when developers are still ironing out issues and releasing updates to fix them.
In such cases, players may need to wait for a patch or update from the game developer to resolve the issue. Or you can try the workarounds in this guide.
How to Fix Graphical Glitches in WWE 2K23
Graphical bugs in WWE 2K23 can occur due to various reasons such as outdated or corrupted GPU drivers, overclocked GPU, incompatible hardware, overheating, or corrupted game files.
The solutions/workarounds that I will focus on in this guide will be on reinstalling the GPU drivers, fixing the game files, and changing the in-game resolution after the necessary changes in the AMD control panel. Without any further delay, let's begin.
Verify Game Files in Steam
If you are playing WWE 2K23 on Steam, it is possible that some game files have become corrupted or are missing. You can use Steam's built-in file verification tool to fix this issue.
- Open Steam and go to your game library.
- Right-click on WWE 2K23
- Select Properties.
- Click on the Local Files tab
- Then click on Verify Integrity of Game Files.
- Wait for the verification process to complete.
- Launch the game and check if the graphical glitches have been fixed.
Reinstall GPU Drivers
If you are experiencing graphical glitches in WWE 2K23, your current GPU driver could be the culprit. To resolve this issue, it is recommended that you uninstall your existing driver completely using Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU), which ensures that no residual files are left behind.
Once you have uninstalled your graphics driver completely, you can install the latest driver for your GPU. If you are unsure how to uninstall drivers via DDU, you can refer to my guide on "How to Use DDU".
In case you require them, you can access the necessary graphics drivers from the following links:
From what I have observed, it experiences that the rainbow pixels/graphical bugs that appear on the screen are predominantly affecting users with AMD systems. It is not limited to any particular model or hardware, but it has been noted that AMD users have been reporting more cases of this issue. However, it is important to note that this does not necessarily mean that other users are exempt from experiencing this problem.
If you are an AMD user experiencing graphical glitches in WWE 2K23, changing the game's resolution may help resolve the issue. You can do this by using Radeon Super Resolution (RSR) technology to play the game at a resolution other than your native resolution.
To enable RSR and change the game's resolution, you need to follow these steps:
- Close WWE 2K23.
- Open your AMD Adrenalin Control Panel.
- Click on Settings (gear icon)
- Select Graphics from the sub-menu.
- In Global Graphics, find the RSR (Radeon Super Resolution) and enable it.
- Relaunch WWE 2K23 and go to the game's graphics settings to change your resolution to other than your native resolution.
By changing the resolution using RSR, you may be able to work around the graphical glitches and enjoy a smoother gameplay experience.
Lower Graphics Settings
In the event that NVIDIA or AMD users are still encountering this issue despite trying the other methods, they can experiment with adjusting the graphics settings in the game. It is possible that this could provide a temporary workaround until a fix is released.
By lowering the graphics settings, you may be able to mitigate the issue, though this could impact the overall visual quality of the game. Nonetheless, it's worth a shot if you're still grappling with the problem.
