Just like any other PC game, Call of Duty: Vanguard is not exempted from encountering random crashes, freezing, stuttering, lagging, and other performance issues. While the developers have been constantly releasing new updates to fix these issues in Call of Duty: Vanguard, there are still players who are getting these annoying problems. So in this guide, we will be giving you the recommended methods to fix the issues in the game.
Fix Crashing Issues
Typically, Call of Duty: Vanguard crashes are usually caused by driver incompatibilities, antivirus, or even Steam client issues.
Check Call of Duty: Vanguard’s Minimum System Requirements
- This is the first thing that you need to do. Make sure that your PC is well-equipped to run Call of Duty: Vanguard smoothly. If your hardware meets the minimum requirements, then you’re good to go. You can head to the Call of Duty: Vanguard store page for the full system requirements.
Outdated Graphics Driver
- Call of Duty: Vanguard requires the latest driver to run. If your GPU driver is too old, it can wreak havoc on the game. You can visit your hardware manufacturer’s website and get the latest driver for your GPU. As for our recommendation, you can download and install IObit’s driver booster or Driver Easy. This software will automatically fetch all available driver updates. This also means that you will also get the latest updates for some drivers that have been unnoticed.
Perform Malware Scan
- Malware is one of the most notorious reasons why most of the newly installed games are crashing. If your computer is infected with malware, there’s a chance that your newly installed files for Call of Duty: Vanguard are being deleted by the malware. It is highly recommended to have malware security software installed on your PC. In our case, we have been using Malwarebytes for a long time now. So far, all malware attempting to infiltrate our PC is being blocked immediately.
Fix Performance Issues
Switch Between Fullscreen/Windowed Mode
- We’re not really sure why, but on some machines, Fullscreen mode is faster than Windowed mode. If the Fullscreen mode is not working to fix the lag and low FPS, switch back to Windowed mode.
- While disabling Vsync can cause some screen tearing, it can bring some smooth framerate on medium to low-end PC. This will help you boost your FPS while running the game. You can also disable Vsync using your graphics control panels such as Nvidia Control Panel and AMD Control Panel.
Prioritize Call of Duty: Vanguard
- Windows OS is usually balancing all the load works and programs running in the background. Setting the prioritization of Call of Duty: Vanguard to High will help boost the FPS of the game.
