In this article, we will see the ways to fix Mouse lagging issues in Battlefront. Mouse lag is one of the input lagging issues that occur in video games. Input lag issues make it impossible to play games for the users. When an input lag occurs, the time between sending a signal to the computer and displaying the respective output increases. For example, if you press the left click of your mouse, you will see the response on your screen a few seconds later. If you face such a thing in the Battlefront game, use the solutions provided in this article to resolve the issue.
Fix Mouse lagging issues in Battlefront on Windows PC
If your Mouse is lagging or stuttering while playing Battlefront, here are some solutions to help you fix the mouse lag & stutter problem on your Windows 11/10 PC:
- Close other programs
- Disconnect and reconnect your mouse
- Check for interference issues
- Change your mouse DPI and Polling Rate
- Turn off In-game Overlay
- Update or reinstall your graphics card driver
- Uninstall and reinstall your mouse driver
- Troubleshoot in a Clean Boot state
- Turn off Enhance Pointer Precision
Let’s see all these fixes in detail.
1] Close other programs
The major cause of input latency is less RAM. Each program that you open on your system consumes some amount of RAM. When you open many programs, the amount of RAM consumption increases. This sometimes creates input latency issues on a PC. Hence, first, close all other programs and then launch the game.
2] Disconnect and reconnect your mouse
Disconnect and reconnect your mouse. Insert it into another USB port and then check if the issue occurs. If you have a wireless mouse, check its batteries. Replace the batteries of your Bluetooth mouse and then check if the problem persists.
3] Check for interference issues
If your computer has a USB 3.0 port and you have connected a USB device to it, the mouse lagging issue can be occurring due to the interference with radio waves. USB 3.0 cables have a tendency to emit radio signals that can interfere with other wireless signals with a frequency of 2.4 GHz, like Bluetooth. If you have placed your Bluetooth mouse near the USB 3.0 port or if you have connected the Bluetooth receiver to the port near the USB 3.0 port and a device is connected to the USB 3.0 port, you may experience issues with the Bluetooth mouse. To resolve this, move your Bluetooth mouse away from the USB 3.0 cable or port.
Another cause of this problem is interference with the WiFi signal. If you have connected your system to a 2.4 GHz frequency WiFi signal, you may experience interference issues with your Bluetooth devices. This is because Bluetooth devices also use 2.4 GHz frequency. Switch from the 2.4 GHz WiFI band to the 5 GHz WiFi band and see if it helps.
4] Change your mouse DPI and Polling Rate
DPI or Dots Per Inch is a standard to measure mouse sensitivity. You can change your mouse sensitivity by changing the DPI. Some gaming mice have dedicated buttons to change the DPI. If your mouse does not have such a button, you can still change its DPI by installing the manufacturer’s software to configure the gaming mouse. For example, Microsoft gaming mice can be configured by using the Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center, Logitech gaming mice can be configured by using the Logitech Gaming software, etc. You have to use the hit-and-trial method to see whether or not this method is working.
If this does not help, change the polling rate of your mouse. Polling Rate can also be changed by using the dedicated buttons provided on the gaming mouse or by using the software (if an option for the same is available).
According to the feedback provided by the affected users, decreasing the mouse DPI and polling rate fixed the issue.
5] Turn off In-game Overlay
In-game Overlay is the feature that lets you chat with your friends, broadcast your gameplay, etc., without leaving the game. By default, this feature is enabled in some gaming platforms. Check this. If it is enabled, disable it. We have described the method to disable In-game Overlay in some popular gaming platforms.

You should also reinstall your gaming mouse driver. Visit the official website of your gaming mouse manufacturer and download the latest version of your gaming mouse. Now, uninstall the currently installed gaming mouse driver via the Device Manager and install the latest version of the mouse driver.
8] Troubleshoot in a Clean Boot state
Sometimes problems occur due to third-party software conflicts. Such types of programs can be identified by troubleshooting in a Clean Boot state. When you start your system by disabling all the third-party services and startup apps, that state is called the Clean Boot state.
Launch the Battlefront game in the Clean Boot state and see if your mouse pointer lags. If not, your next step is to identify the problematic program or service. Now, launch the Task Manager and enable the disabled startup apps one by one and restart your system every time you enable a startup app. After starting your system, launch the game and see if the problem persists. Repeat the process until you find the problematic startup app. When you find the problematic app, uninstall it.
If your mouse does not lag after enabling all the startup apps, it means that a third-party service is a culprit. Now, open MSConfig and enable some of the third-party Services. After that, restart your computer. Launch the game and check if the issue persists. This process will help you identify the problematic third-party Service. When you find the problematic Service, disable it.
9] Turn off Enhance Pointer Precision
Enhance Pointer Precision is the feature that accelerates the mouse cursor based on how fast you move your mouse. For example, if you move your mouse quickly with Enhance Pointer Precision enabled, your cursor will cover a longer distance on the screen. While on the other hand, if you move your mouse very slowly with Enhance Pointer Precision enabled, the cursor will also move slowly and cover a minimum distance on the screen.
Disabling this feature on a Windows PC has worked for some users. Therefore, you should also try this. The steps to disable Enhance Pointer Precision option for your mouse are written below:
- Open the Control Panel.
- Type mouse in the Control Panel Search Bar.
- Click Mouse.
