Fix 1: Verify the integrity of game files

Follow these steps:
- Open your Epic Games launcher. From the left pane, select Library. At the bottom right corner of the Rogue Company box, click the ellipse icon.
- Select Verify. Then wait for the process to complete.
- Once done, launch your game and check if the problem persists.

Fix 2: Update your graphics driver
More often than not, especially in new titles, the constant crashes are graphics-related. Aside from misconfigurations, one of the common causes is that you’re using a broken or outdated graphics driver. You should always keep your driver up to date and don’t wait until an issue occurs. New drivers can, sometimes, bring your game performance to a whole new level.
There’re generally 2 ways you can update your graphics driver: manually or automatically.
Option 1: Update your graphics driver manually
If you’re familiar with computer hardware, you can try to update your GPU driver manually. To do so, first visit your graphics card manufacturer’s website:
Then search for your exact graphics card model. Be sure to download the latest correct installer according to your operating system. Once downloaded, open the wizard and follow the instructions to update.
Option 2: Update your graphics driver automatically (Recommended)
If you’re not comfortable playing with device drivers, we recommend using Driver Easy. It’s a tool that detects, downloads and installs any driver updates your computer needs.
- Download and install Driver Easy.
- Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
- Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system.(This requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All. If you don’t want to pay for the Pro version, you can still download and install all the drivers you need with the free version; you just have to download them one at a time, and manually install them, the normal Windows way.)
After updating all your drivers, restart your PC for the changes to apply. Then check the gameplay in Rogue Company.
If the latest GPU driver doesn’t stop the game crash, you can check out the next solution.
Fix 3: Install all Windows updates
Windows 10 receives continuous support in the form of updates. These patches and feature updates address major compatibility issues and could be a potential fix to your crashing issue. Usually Windows will schedule updates for you, but you can make it happen manually:
- On your keyboard, press Win+I (the Windows logo key and the i key) to open the Windows Settings app. Click Update & Security.
- Click Check for updates. Windows will then download and install the available patches. It might take some time (up to 30 mins).
Once completed, restart your PC and check if Rogue Company crashes again.

Fix 4: Disable in-game overlays
Overlay allows you to chat, place orders and interact with friends on another platform during game. This feature is included in apps like Steam, Discord and NVIDIA GeForce Experience and is usually turned on by default.
Normally it’s just a handy function, but there’re also reports that it may trigger performance issues and sometimes even game crashes. So if you’re using any programs mentioned above, try turning them off or disabling the in-game overlay inside them and see how it goes.
