Problems with Sniper Rifle in Hitman 3

Hello! I’m looking for help on a problem. I have played the full trilogy of Hitman games and have had no issues until Hitman 3. I can’t even say when the problem really started, but I am having real problems using the sniper rifle in Hitman 3 that never happened in Hitman 1 or 2.

I can do everything else with no problems, but trying to aim, zoom, and fire a sniper rifle sometimes works, but normally doesn’t. Zooming or firing usually causes me to jump back as if I stopped aiming, i.e. simply hold the rifle. It is is consistent and annoying. As a test, I went back to my Steam version of Hitman 2 and now it has the same issue which it never had before.

I have a frame rate of around 50 to 60 fps that occasionally dips to the low 40’s, but never below 40 that I can see. I have an i7-7700HQ 4-Core 2.8GHz, GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB, 16GB RAM, and 1920x1080 display. I am running the graphics settings suggested by GeForce Experience.

I tried uninstalling all my games and game launchers (Epic and Steam), reinstalled only Epic and Hitman 3, but no improvement.

Any suggestions? Maybe you point me to the correct forum?

That’s a weird one. Did you get a new mouse? Change some kind of hotkey or macro settings? All I could think of off the top of my head. Make sure you post in the bug report thread.

I didn’t get a new mouse, but it turns out my current mouse is defective. I borrowed my wife’s mouse, and no glitches. Thanks for the thoughts!
