Halo Infinite: How To Fix Crash On Startup Issue
Startup Crash Hotfixes
Here's a list of what players can do to stop this Halo Infinite crash from happening again:
- Verify File Integrity of Halo Infinite. On the Steam client, this option can be found after right-clicking the game and under the "Manage tab"
- Update DirectX Drivers. The drivers can be found on the official Microsoft site
- Clear Download Cache. On the Steam Client, find the Settings menus and click on the Downloads tab to find this option
- Check if your PC really meets the minimum requirements for the game
- Update your Graphics Card
- On AMD, disable the Async Compute feature
If those solutions don't work, try redownloading Halo Infinite if you've exhausted those options. Those solutions can work differently depending on your setup, so redownload is a last resort option.
Why It Crashes
