Outriders is the latest third-person shooter from People Can Fly, and Square Enix. Unlike Marvel’s Avengers, Outsiders is doing far better in the online co-op genre. It crossed the 100k concurrent player count on the day of launch and managed to retain its position as one of the best-selling games on Steam for days. This highly successful launch lead to a lot of server issues, and players couldn’t get into the game, at all. Apart from that, there are some technical problems as well. If you are on the PC version and want to fix the Outriders blurry visuals, here is how you can do that.

The user reviews are currently at Mixed on Steam, and that is due to the technical issues we mentioned above. Players are definitely enjoying the game itself, but server issues aren’t helpful and need fixing. The developers are hard at work to fix these, and we hope that it runs smoothly soon.

Disable Vsync

For some reason, turning off Vsync can potentially fix the visuals as well. There seems to be some dynamic rendering attached to both the frame limiter, and vsync setting. Follow the same steps as above, and set the value of Vsync to Off.

Delete the Madness folder and verify files

If the first method didn’t work for you, try the following. This is for players that had previously installed the demo as well.

  • Open Windows Run by either searching for it in the Windows Search bar or simply pressing Windows R keys together
  • After that, enter the following address in Windows Run. As shown below.


  • Here, delete the folder called Madness. This will delete all the configuration files that came with the demo as well.
  • Now, open Steam, and navigate to your library
  • Here, right-click on Outriders, and select Properties
