Respawn Entertainment is well aware of the annoying stuttering that occurs online. Players using high levels of FPS will see massive drops at the worst time, causing the game to be unplayable. Or even worse, it will cause you to lose a gunfight. Most have fixed the problem by simply lowering the FPS for their game. The safe spot seems to be under 180.

But it looks like you don't have to compromise anymore.

In a Reddit post, Redditor BornToSowDeath asked how to get over 300 FPS. Another Redditor pointed out the cap is 300 but you didn't want to go over 180 because of the stuttering problem.

That's when Respawn’s Lead Software Engineer Samy Duc piped in, "Should be gone after next patch. Do not hesitate to let me know."

Now exactly when the next patch will appear is unknown, but if Duc was this confident in letting fans know of the fix, it's probably going to arrive in the next week or so.
