Here’s a Temporary Call of Duty: Warzone PC Crashing Fix

Share this:

For those playing Call of Duty: Warzone on PC, you’ve most likely ran into crashing issues since it launched earlier this week. While Infinity Ward hasn’t issued a Warzone PC crashing fix just yet, someone else managed to find a fix — albeit, temporarily.

Over on the Call of Duty: Warzone subreddit, user Slimshade16 posted that if PC players downgraded their NVIDIA graphics to a lower version, it does the trick! According to the user, once he’s done this, he managed to play the game for five hours, and it the crashing stopped.

If you have an Nvidia graphics card, downgrade your graphics drivers to version 440.97.

Simply download the drivers, run the express installation, and then restart your computer. When you load Warzone back up it will give you the typical “for best performance upgrade your drivers” message. Ignore that and just load up the game. It will take a couple of minutes for shaders to install and for everything to load up, but once it does, the crashing should stop.

I signed on this morning and crashed my first 2 games (I had version 442.59 installed). I got tired of it and decided to downgrade my drivers and since then I have played for about 5 hours and haven’t crashed one time.

Hopefully, IW or Nvidia will release a proper update to stop the crashing so we don’t have to continually find temporary fixes just to play the damn game.

Again, note that this is not an official solution, but one that’s very much needed. As for Infinity Ward, the studio is aware of the crashing issues, and is asking players who are experiencing this to fill out this form. The studio has also outlined a few troubleshooting tips that players need to do before filling out the form:

~Perform a clean install of graphics drivers

~Ensure your drivers are updated

~Ensure you have the latest version of Windows installed

~ Run a Scan and Repair through BattleNet

Hopefully, an official fix will be rolled out ASAP, so PC players can experience Warzone without worrying about crashing their game every other match.

In other Warzone news, Infinity Ward has confirmed that players who down enemies will get the kill credit and this will be changed in an upcoming update.
