Fortnite is a very famous and really good cross-platform multiplayer game. It is playable on a pc, a console, or even with your phone or tab. Earlier it was available only on the IOS platform however now it’s available on android also. Its owner’s epic games had made it free on all platforms including the PS4.

How To Fix Fortnite Keeps Crashing Error?
Depending on the pc on which you are playing there might be more than one ways to stop it from crashing a few of them are:
1. Lower the Graphics Settings
If you are playing on a pc that is not powerful enough then playing on high settings might be the reason that your game keeps crashing. For playing it on high or epic settings you are going to need a graphics driver of 4GB at least. Sometimes lower frames might be an indication before the game crashes.
2. Run Fortnite as an Administrator
Right-click on the Fortnite folder and select properties. Select the Security tab and edit. Select your account check if you have full control of the bottom window. Select advanced in the original window.
Check to see the owner at the top of the new window then select change and select change and click ok to restart your game. By running Fortnite as an administrator you instantly find out at which setting your game can run or in other words stop your game from crashing.
3. Regularly Update the Graphics Driver and the Game
Keeping the graphics driver and the game up to date is very important. The graphics drivers can be updated directly from the AMD or the NVIDIA website. A way to be reminded of regular updates of driver updates is by turning on the notifications of the official websites. Fortnite belongs completely to epic games.
So the safest and the most convenient way of updating the app is from the epic games store itself. Playing on the older version of an online game like Fortnite not only stops you from playing with the players having new versions but also affects your game files. If those game files are compromised you might have to reinstall the game to solve this problem.
4. Change the Screen Mode in Which You Are Playing Fortnite
Screen mode and resolution are assigned to a game by default depending upon your system. Changing the resolution just so that the game would look better might cause the game to crash every time you launch it.
Also, the screen settings are assigned as full screen windowed or borderless. It might also be something else on your pc. Changing this also causes frame stutter, lag, and the game crash.
5. Change Registry Settings
Changing some registry settings might prevent your Fortnite from crashing. For changing the registry settings follow these steps:
- Press Windows Key + R to open the Run Command.
- In the Run command, type Regedit and press Enter to open Registry Editor.
- Create a backup of the registry keys in case anything goes wrong.
- Click on File and then Export.
- Choose a location to save the backup.
- In case anything goes wrong after you modify registry keys, you can import the copy to undo the changes.
- In Registry Editor, go to the following path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers
- On the right hand, side pane right-clicks any empty space and select New > QWORD (64-bit) Value and name the new value as TdrLevel.
- Double click on the TdrLevel to modify it.
- Set the value data to 0 (Zero).
- Close Registry Editor and restart your computer.
6. Check For Corrupt or Missing Files
If the files are corrupt or missing then the game might fail to launch or might also crash a lot of times in between the games. A missing DLL file can cause the launch to fail or disappear. Files have their separate codec. If the file is typed or downloaded with a wrong coded it will show an error.
This problem can be easily solved by scanning for the missing file or corrupted file and just replacing the file with a new one that can be found on the internet for free. Or the option of fixing files will be present in the epic games store itself which will help in solving the problem of missing or corrupt files.
A powerful PC with minimum specs to provide at least 60 fps can easily run Fortnite without crashing. However, for some unlucky people, it will crash anyway no matter how powerful the system might be.
