For those who meet the requirements but still getting the issues mentioned above, below are the fixes that you can try.

Update Your Drivers

Rainbow Six Extraction is released in a good condition. If you meet the minimum requirements of the game, it’s likely that your outdated graphics driver is the main reason why Rainbow Six Extraction is crashing. We highly recommend getting the latest update for your PC. You can visit your hardware manufacturer’s official website to get the latest update for your device.

Manually downloading and installing drivers for your PC is time-consuming. For some, updating drivers may be a little bit complicated. For those who want an easier method, we recommend trying IObit’s Driver Booster to automatically download and fetch the latest and needed driver update for your PC. In our case, we used Driver Booster to update and fix the crashing and performance issues in Rainbow Six Extraction.

Kill Resource-Hogging Applications

Chances are you have lots of applications installed on your PC. Some of these applications have been constantly using the resources that possibly trigger Rainbow Six Extraction crashing. We highly suggest closing the software that you are not using while playing Rainbow Six Extraction.

Some of the most popular software that eats lots of resources while in the background are Media Players, web browsers such as Firefox and Chrome,  and more. You can close these applications by closing them using the Task Manager.

Disable Antivirus

Another reason why Rainbow Six Extraction keeps on crashing on PC is your antivirus. Antivirus companies have been usually updating their software to enhance security. There’s a chance that Rainbow Six Extraction’s executable file (.exe) is being marked as a virus. Disable or temporarily disable your antivirus or any security programs on your computer. If you download the Rainbow Six Extraction from the official store, we’re 100% sure that the game files are safe. So, you have to exclude the .exe of Rainbow Six Extraction and see if the problem has been solved.

Contact the Official Support

If you’re still having some Rainbow Six Extraction issues after trying all the recommended fixes above, you can always reach the official support team of Rogue Legends. You can visit their official website or join the discussion on the Rainbow Six Extraction discussion community on Steam.
