Call of Duty Warzone

The much-anticipated Call of Duty: Warzone is finally here and comes with two game modes – Battle Royale and Plunder. The Battle Royale pits a squad comprising three members against up to 49 other teams in a 'last squad standing' match with up to 150 players.

Plunder, on the other hand, tasks players with collecting the most in-match cash by looting across the map, stealing money from the enemies, and completing in-game contracts. Warzone takes place within Verdansk, an expansive city which has a number of named zones and more than 300 points of interest.

How to stop Call of Duty: Warzone from crashing?

Most GPU intensive games generally tend to crash or face other such issues on PCs during the launch attempts or while playing in public multiplayer matches.

Minimum system requirements to play Warzone: Call of Duty

  • Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit (SP1) or Windows 10 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i3-4340 or AMD FX-6300
  • Storage: 175 GB of hard drive space
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 / NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 or AMD Radeon HD 7950 - DirectX 12.0 compatible system

Do note that the above are the minimum system requirements, therefore, a higher configuration would be recommended for better gameplay experience. However, if everything seems to be in place, you may try these simple tricks:

  • Nvidia has recently released a new driver which has been tailored specifically to optimise the Call of Duty: Warzone performance. This is very essential for a stable experience.
  • Shut down all the extraneous programs that are running in the background.
  • Lastly, you may also try running Warzone on a lower setting. This mostly works for newer games as the odd ultra settings can sometimes be problematic to the graphics card. You can try turning all the settings down to a minimum, before gradually taking them back up one at a time.
