In Farming Simulator 22, where you can grow your virtual farm, it’s not just the produce that might pop up every time. Sometimes, it’s the unwanted bugs and glitches that can hinder the gameplay. Similarly, some players are facing a problem: their vehicles won’t go backward as they should. This issue is happening on PS, Xbox, and PC. It’s frustrating for those trying to manage their digital fields. So, how do you fix it? Well, as always, here we are with all the answers.
The landscape is vast in Farming Simulator 22, and vehicles are your essential companions, helping you cultivate fields, transport goods, and manage your farm efficiently. The ability to move forward and backward is crucial for these vehicles, especially when navigating tight spaces or aligning equipment. So, when the reverse function starts acting up in-game on your PS5, Xbox, or PC, it can disrupt the smooth flow of farm operations. That being said, continue reading to explore the workarounds that can get your vehicles working in reverse gear, ensuring your farming experience remains seamless.
Farming Simulator 22 reverse not working (PS5, Xbox, PC): How to fix it
First and foremost, this is not a bug or a glitch. It is the game mechanics that some players are having difficulty understanding. It is the Stop and Go braking system and Driving Direction system that might be misunderstood and overlooked by some players. Anyhow, we are here to explain all of it.
While you are in the game, all you have to do is pause and head to the settings menu on the left-hand side. In the Vehicle Settings section, you should be able to see the toggle for the Stop and Go braking feature. Chances are, it is set to off. So, what you need to do is simply turn it back on and then head back into the game. After that, in the General Settings section, look around for the option that reads “Direction Change”. You can try both the automatic and manual options to see what works for you. To check, just hop on a vehicle and try reversing. With Stop and Go braking enabled, your vehicle will automatically go in reverse after stopping when you hold down the brake button. For PC, this brake button should be designated as the “S” key. On the other hand, if the Stop and Go braking is turned off, you will first need to stop the vehicle with a single tap of “S” and press it again after a pause to start moving in reverse.
PS5 and Xbox
For consoles, the fix is still the same. Hop into the game and then follow the instructions given above to enable Stop and Go braking. What you need to be mindful of is the keybinding. On a PS5, the button/trigger to stop/reverse is L2. On the other hand, it is the LT that is assigned to stopping and reversing a vehicle on an Xbox Controller.
Well, if the issue persists even after tweaking these settings, you can try changing the keybind for reverse to a different button and trying again, or you can change the input device you are using. If you are using a keyboard, switch to controller input, and vice versa.
With that, you have reached the end of this guide. We hope that now you understand the Stop and Go braking system in the game. You should now be able to reverse your vehicle in any scenario, whether Stop and Go braking is enabled or disabled. Anyway, for more guides like this, stay tuned to DigiStatement.
