Please attempt the following list of fixes before posting:

  1. Run PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS directly from your Steam games list, instead of a shortcut from your taskbar or elsewhere.
  2. Restart your computer.
  3. Right click on Steam and Run as administrator.
  4. Monitor your hardware temperature whilst in-game. If your computer components are running extremely hot, there may be an issue with your hardware. I personally check my temperatures with software from http://openhardwaremonitor.org
  5. Remove any overclocks. If your computer has any components which are overclocked, please reduce them back to their stock speeds and see if the crashing issues persist.
  6. Verify integrity of game files. Instructions here.
  7. Update your graphics drivers. Links for AMD & Nvidia.
  8. Clean/Fresh install of your graphics drivers. Instructions here. Links for AMD & NVIDIA.
  9. Ensure your page file size is sufficient. Some users have reported some memory crashes stop once they increase their page file size on their primary local drive to 16GB or higher. I personally have my page file set to 32000 initial and maximum size and no longer experience memory crashes. Instructions here.
  10. Complete All Windows Updates. Instructions here. The game is known to crash without some of the most recent Windows updates.
  11. Update/Reinstall Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015. Instructions here.
