We will be listing down a number of the different causes of BattleBit Remastered crashing in this article. In addition, we will also provide several solutions to the problem in question that you can execute to fix the crashes. 

What causes Battlebit Remastered to crash? 

The exact cause of the crash can differ depending on various scenarios. However, usually insufficient permissions of the game result in the process crashing. There can be other elements that contribute to the game crash as well. Let us take a deep look at the different causes of the problem.

  • Insufficient Permissions:The most common cause of the problem in question is insufficient permissions. This situation allows third-party apps to conflict with the game process, which causes it to crash.
  • Malfunctioning Anticheat: Another cause of the issue at hand can be the Easy AntiCheat service which is used by the game as a middleware for detecting hacking in the game. A malfunctioning anti-cheat service will lead the game to crash during a match or in the main menu. 
  • Corrupted Steam Download Cache: If the Steam download cache on your system is damaged or corrupted, it can result in BattleBit Remastered crashing on your system. This occurs due to an anomaly of the Steam client and not because of the game itself.
  • Missing Visual C++ Redistributables: Missing Visual C++ Redistributables that are required by the game can also cause it to crash. In such an instance, you will need to install the proper runtime libraries on your system. 
  • Third-Party Interference: The involvement of a third-party app in the background of the game can cause it to crash. This can often occur when a third-party app is trying to provide an in-game overlay or other features. 
  • Missing/Corrupted Game Files: If the game files on your PC are damaged or you are missing certain game files from the installation folder, the game will experience crashes. This can be resolved by repairing the game files or reinstalling the game.

How to fix BattleBit Remastered Crashing? 

With the causes of the problem out of the way, we can start with the numerous solutions to the issue in question that will help you remedy the problem once and for all. 

  1. Run BattleBit Remastered as Administrator: Insufficient permissions for the BattleBit Remastered process within your Windows environment can result in game crashes. In such a scenario, you must run the game with administrative privileges to make sure it obtains the necessary permissions for proper execution. This will grant the game the required access to system resources, minimizing the likelihood of crashes and enhancing overall performance.
  2. Disable In-game Overlay: The presence of in-game overlays from other applications on your system can also contribute to game crashes. Discord and NVIDIA GeForce Experience, in particular, commonly implement their in-game overlays on all games on your computer, leading to potential crashes for some titles. In such an instance, you will have to disable third-party overlays to prevent any interference with the game files and ensure smoother gameplay.
  3. Repair Easy Anticheat Client: Battlebit Remastered uses the Easy Anticheat service to prevent cheating and hacking in their game. If the anti-cheat service is not running properly or encountering any issues, it will cause the game to crash to prevent one from sabotaging the anti-cheat client. As such, you will need to repair the anti-cheat service to resolve the issue. 
  4. Clear Steam Download Cache: The Steam Download Cache is used to store the relevant files of an ongoing update or installation process. In some instances, if the download cache is corrupted, it can lead to various Steam titles crashing on your system. To resolve this, you will have to clear the Steam Download Cache.
  5. Install Missing Visual C++ Redistributables: If Visual C++ Redistributables are missing on your computer, which are required by Battlebit Remastered, the game will not run smoothly and may encounter crashes. These runtime libraries play an important role as they facilitate the functioning of applications built on them. Therefore, you need to install all of the Visual C++ Redistributables runtime libraries to resolve the issue.
  6. Reinstall BattleBit Remastered: Lastly, if the BattleBit Remastered game files on your system are damaged, or you are missing specific files in your game installation, the game will constantly crash. If this case is applicable, you will need to reinstall the game via the Steam client to mitigate the crashes.
