Apex Legends Crash on PC:
Apex Legends has been one of the most successful Battle Royale games among gamers since it was released back in February 2019. Since a month after its launch, Respawn has been very actively pushing out fresh updates for the game consistently and launching Combat Pass seasons. So, for its fifth season, the developers today dropped an update. While this update, along with the latest legend, Loba, brings a lot of new stuff to the table, it also came with one of the most irritating bugs of all time.
Now, as soon as the update arrived, I downloaded and installed it and waited eagerly to enjoy playing with Loba. So, I excitedly launched the game after downloading over 40 GB of data and installed it.
At first, it took more time for the game to load the game data than it normally does. However, the main problem started when I went to my friends list page. As soon as I entered the section, without any errors or something, the game crashed. Since then, every time I opened it, the game started to crash. Pretty crazy isn’t it?
So, right after the latest update, I did some digging and found that many players are having the same thing. There, too, I discovered some of the players complaining about this same thing going on Reddit. Nevertheless, going through the comments, I found the solution to this issue and it worked like a charm for me.
How to Repair Apex Legend’s PC Crash issue
So, here’s how this irritating crash bug can be repaired.
- On your desktop, open Origin.
- From the menu bar on the left, go to ‘My Game Library.’
- Right-click on Apex Legends.
- To start the process, find Repair and click on it.
Now, after you have clicked on the “Repair” button, the client will start testing the game files on your computer. As the software has to validate over 40 GB of data, this could take some time. In my case, the client began downloading an additional 16 GB of data after checking the game files, which took about 45 minutes to complete.
However, when I booted the game after this download, it worked exactly as it should without signs of crashing or any problems with loading data. The new patch does not appear to load the update correctly, leaving out over 16 GB of game info.
So, if you are having this very same issue, there is a high probability that, as it did for me, this fix will work for you. Go on and give it a shot and mention your review in the comments below if it works. Well, happy gaming!
