Game crashing issues happen for various reasons. Players are likely to encounter the Remnant crash because of a faulty graphics driver, outdated game version, low RAM, program conflicts, and improper in-game settings.

Though it may seem complex, it isn’t. Here is a list of solutions that have proved useful for many players. You may not have to try them all; just work your way down the list until you find the one that works for you.

  1. Restart your computer
  2. Disable your antivirus temporarily
  3. Run your game as an administrator
  4. Update your graphics driver
  5. Install the latest game patch
  6. Verify the integrity of your game files
  7. Disable voice chat
  8. Run your game in compatibility mode
  9. Reinstall Remnant and/or Steam

Fix 1: Restart your computer

Running multiple programs at the same time takes up a lot of resources, undermining your game performance. Apart from that, some programs may conflict with your game and cause the crashing error. So, you should close unwanted programs during gameplay by restarting your computer.

If Remnant still crashes after the reboot, go ahead with the next fix.

Fix 2: Disable your antivirus temporarily

The Remnant crash is sometimes caused by interference from antivirus software. To see if that’s the problem for you, temporarily disable your antivirus program and check if the problem persists. (Consult your antivirus documentation for instructions on disabling it.)

If your game works properly after you disable the antivirus software, contact the vendor of your antivirus software and ask them for advice, or install a different antivirus solution.

Be extra careful about what sites you visit, what emails you open and what files you download when your antivirus is disabled.

Fix 3: Run your game as an administrator

Some players experience the Remnant crash when running Remnant under a stander user account. In this case, the quickest fix is granting your game launcher with admin credentials. Follow the instructions below to see how:

1) Exit Steam.

2) Right-click the Steam icon and select Properties.

3) Click the Compatibility tab and check the box next to Run this program as an administrator. Then, click OK.

4) Relaunch Steam and Remnant to test your issue.

You can hopefully run the game without errors now. If this didn’t work for you, try the fix below.

Fix 4: Update your graphics driver

Game issues, such as freezing, lagging, crashing and low FPS, often occur when your graphics driver is missing or corrupted. So, if Remant frequently crashes your computer, try updating your driver to see if it fixes your issue. There are two ways to do it:

Option 1 – Manually– You’ll need some computer skills and patience to update your drivers this way, because you need to find exactly the right the driver online, download it and install it step by step.


Option 2 – Automatically (Recommended)– This is the quickest and easiest option. It’s all done with just a couple of mouse clicks – easy even if you’re a computer newbie.

Option 1 – Download and install the driver manually

The manufacturer of your graphics card keeps updating drivers. To get the latest graphics driver, you need to go to the manufacturer’s website, find the drivers corresponding with your specific flavor of Windows version (for example, Windows 32 bit) and download the driver manually.

Once you’ve downloaded the correct drivers for your system, double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.

Option 2 – Automatically update your graphics driver

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update the graphics driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks:

1) Download and install Driver Easy.

2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

3) Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All). 

You can do it for free if you like, but it’s partly manual.

Fix 5: Install the latest game patch

The developers of Remnant release regular game patches to resolve bugs. It’s possible that a recent patch has stopped Remnant from launching correctly, and that a new patch is required to fix it.

To check if there is any update, go to the Remnant: From the Ashes website and search for the latest patchIf a patch is available, install it, then run your game again to check whether the crashing problem has been fixed. If it hasn’t, or there was no new game patch available, move on to the next fix.

Fix 6: Verify the integrity of your game files

If Remnant crashing issues persist, chances are that one or more outdated or corrupted game files is conflicting with the game. To fix it, follow the instructions below to validate your game files:

1) Run Steam.

2) Click LIBRARY.

3) Right-click Remnant: From the Ashes and select Properties.


5) Relaunch Remnant to see if this has fixed your problem. If not, move on to the fix below.

Fix 7: Disable voice chat

In some cases, the in-game voice chat feature in Remnant (which is enabled by default,) is the culprit of the crashing error. Try disabling voice chat to see if it fixes your issue. Here is how to do it:

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and E at the same time.

2) Paste %LOCALAPPDATA%\Remnant\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor on the address bar, then press the Enter key on your keyboard.

Fix 8: Run your game in compatibility mode

This fix only applies to Windows 10 and 8. If you’re on Window 7, check Fix 9, below.

If Remnant crashing issues occur after Windows updates, it could be a compatibility issue. But this doesn’t necessarily mean you should play Remnant on another PC! If you’re on Windows 8 or 10, try running your game in compatibility mode. Here is how to do it:

1) Right-click the Remnant icon, then select Properties.

2) Click the Compatibility tab. Then check the box next to Run this program in compatibility mode for.

3) Click the list box below to select Windows 7, then click OK. (If you’re on Windows 10, you can also try running your game in Windows 8 mode.)

If this didn’t work for you, repeat steps above to disable the compatibility mode.
