FIXED: Camera Stuck in Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader

Key Takeaways
  • The "camera stuck" issue in Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader is a common glitch that makes the camera immovable, often accompanied by invisible text during dialogues or no audio.
  • Solutions include restarting the game, adjusting settings back to user preferences (like camera speed, font size, and audio volume), and for PC users, verifying the integrity of game files through Steam.
  • The cause of the camera stuck issue is not definitively known, but using optimization apps like NVIDIA's GeForce Experience has been linked to triggering this bug.

The latest game adaptation of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, Rogue Trader, was released just 2 months ago. While the developers at Owlcat Games have done a splendid job by delivering a faithful adaptation and great gameplay, the game does have a few glaring issues in the form of bugs and glitches.

While these bugs and glitches are nothing compared to the fiasco that was Cyberpunk 2077, they are, nonetheless, irritating. A common issue that many players have encountered is the stuck camera, which renders the camera immovable. Let’s look at how you can fix this issue and what exactly causes it.

Why Does The Camera Become Stuck?

So far, no definite cause has been identified as a source of the issue. The problem occurs randomly after you close the game and open it up the next time, across all platforms. Using optimization apps on PC, like NVIDIA‘s GeForce Experience, to launch the game has also been known to cause this bug.

While the problem is frustrating, what is more irritating is the fact that it usually occurs alongside another bug. Usually, the sidekick takes the 2 forms:

  1. No visible text during dialogue
  2. No audio at all

Either way, let’s take a look at how you can fix these issues altogether.

The ol’ tried-and-tested way to get any kind of software running like its usual self. Simply, close the game by quitting it from the title screen or by eliminate the process altogether. Either way, start the game back up again and hopefully, the problem should be resolved.

Solution 2: Changing Back the Settings

Completely resetting or changing back the setting to your preferences is the definitive fix to each of these problems. The bug actually sets the camera speed setting value at 0%. The same applies for the other issues we’ve mentioned above; the font size setting has been set to 0% and the audio volume has been set to 0%.

As you’d normally expect, change these values to your preferences, or reset all settings to default. Here’s how to change the settings in Rogue Trader:
