One of the weirder performance-improving tips you may have heard for XCOM 2 [official site] is speeding up load times by hitting the Caps Lock key. It sounded unlikely, but it has worked for me. Others found it made them wait even longer, as XCOM 2 would crash and they’d need to relaunch it and reload and probably say some rude words on top I bet. What even is this trick? How does it work? Why don’t developers Firaxis make XCOM 2 automatically do… whatever this is? They’ve now explained.
