Light-on-pedal modifier brake on 1.20 locking wheels
Reviewed, NormalPublic


During 1.19 using the light on pedal modifier (crtl + s) or even regular breaking did not lock your wheels meaning you could maintain the turning control over your vehicle while breaking.
On the 1.20 if you use light break, the momentum compared to heavy on pedal breaking is slower but after a moment the brake will still apply to maximum causing wheels to lock and being unable to maintain control while breaking.

In short before it seems that the light on pedal brake limited the brake not to hit 100% on last version, but now instead it slows it down the acceleration of breaking lightly but still applying the brake to 100%.


Operating System
Windows 10
Steps To Reproduce

Drive any car at higher speed and apply light on pedal brake (crtl + s). Compare results between 1.19 and 1.20.

  • can confirm: ANY vehicle since 1.20 is doing full break -> normal brake not possible, weels blocking (including symbol)

Yes I have experienced the same thing.

Sometimes I really asking myself if someone of the devs is testing anything they did or if it‘s like „I changed something -> case closed -> let the community test it“.
That are bugs I need only 2 minutes of playing to see it…

I will add my final note, which is based on my personal opinion. The design in 1.19 was better for both casual driving and aggressive driving situations. Having no control over breaking currently causing wheels to lock every time causes vehicle to lose ability to turn is no improvement. Only workaround for this currently is by tapping your brake button.

I don’t know what happening here, but they say the perfectly working function in1.19 is misunderstanded. What?

Hello everyone
the previous comment was based on incorrect information that has been forwarded to me. The team goes over this internally and I will let you know once I have more information.
apologies and thank you for understanding.

Hello again.
Apologies for any inconveniences. As it currently stands, Shift + S modifier affects the brakes and that is correct (Applies more force to the brakes). Ctrl + S modifier to slow brake has never been implemented into the game and the fact that it was announced in 1.19 as a feature was a mistake on our end and we apologise - this has never worked even on 1.19.
As for the vehicle behaviour, according to the devs there were no changes done to the vehicles between 1.19 version and 1.20 version so they should behave the same but of course, we will investigate based on your feedback.


As is experienced sometimes (1 out of 100) works the normal brake in gunter and brakes the car as before but after next time it blocks the wheels again.

„there were no changes done to the vehicles between 1.19 version and 1.20 version“

Nice joke… Every car is blocking the weels (since) 1.20 and devs „we changed nothing with car“. Maybe some devs should just play the game, would maybe bring the bug-fixing fast forward…
