Apex Legends can crash without error codes due to driver issues, hardware problems and in some cases, overclocking.
Repairing game files should be the first step you take as an attempt to fix the issue.
If a game repair does not work, you need to check for outdated or corrupt drivers and other potential problems.

Apex Legends can sometimes crash without any warnings and it is nearly impossible to solve. The issue is often caused by driver issues, hardware problems and in some cases, overclocking. The game might run fine but then you may run into crashes without error codes with no solution in sight. I ran into the issue myself twice and it took weeks to figure out what was wrong. Here is a quick guide on how to fix Apex Legends' crashes without errors.

Repair Game Files

The best-case scenario is that the game files are corrupted and doing a quick repair on Steam or Origin should fix the issue for you.

  1. Open Steam or Origin, depending on which launcher, your game is located in.

  2. Find Apex Legends in your Library

  3. On Steam: Right Click on Apex Legends > Click on Properties > head to Local Files > Click on Verify Integrity of Game Files

    On Origin: Find the Gear icon next to the play button when clicking on Apex Legends in your Library and click on it. Click on the Repair button in the next popup.

  4. The game files will now be automatically verified and any corrupt files will be removed.

Disable XMP and Overclocks

If the above solution did not work, and if you have tried all common solutions already then you should try disabling Extreme Memory Profiles (XMP) on your RAM. While the feature is meant to give you a performance boost by overclocking your computer’s memory (RAM), Apex Legends can run into issues. You will need to look for solutions on how to disable XMP for your specific motherboard as the user interface and settings menus can vary drastically for different motherboards. When I faced the issue, a simple automatic overlock to 3666 Hz from 3600 Hz made the game unstable and it led to crashes without errors.

  1. In the Windows search bar, type in 'cmd' and hit enter.

  2. In Command Prompt, type in “wmic baseboard get product,Manufacturer.”

  3. The name of your motherboard will be displayed.

If you have a factory overclocked graphics card or if you manually overclocked your processor or graphics card, you need to disable it and that should resolve these Apex Legends crashes without errors.

Update Graphics Card Drivers

Update or reinstall your graphics card drivers if you are still facing the error.

AMD Users

  1. Visit the AMD Driver and Support page: https://www.amd.com/en/support

  2. Click the ‘DOWNLOAD NOW’ button to begin downloading the AMD Driver Auto-detect tool.

  3. Once the download is complete, run the file from the save location.

  4. When prompted, click Install to begin the setup process.

  5. Click Next until the update completes for your graphics driver.

NVIDIA Users

  1. Search for NVIDIA GeForce Experience in the Start menu.

  2. Click on the first result.

  3. Click on Drivers.

  4. Click on Check for Updates or Update.

  5. Wait for the download to complete and click on Install.

  6. Click on Next until the installation is complete.

Edit Registry Files

Apex Legends can sometimes crash without errors due to registry issues.

  • Right-click on your desktop

  • Hover on New and click on “Text Document”

  • Rename the file to fix.reg

  • Right-click and click on Edit

  • Add the following code to the file

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers] “TdrDelay”=hex(b):08,00,00,00,00,00,00,00

  • After you are done pasting the text, save the file and exit the text editor.

  • Double click on the saved file and click on “Yes”

  • Restart your computer

Check Your Storage Drives

Sometimes bad sectors in your storage drive can cause issues. You should use tools like CrystalDiskInfo to check for potential issues in your storage drives.

If you are still facing issues consider reaching out to EA Support.
