One may ask, why should one play Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon? My answer would be; the exhilarating action coupled with dragons, and other furious monsters isn’t something we see often. The game is fun to play, and many avid PC gamers are itching to get their hands dirty with it.

However, users have reported some issues creating problems not letting them to play the game properly. These issues can be resolved by simple fixes. So, if you are looking for a fix related to a certain problem, browse through the following troubleshooting listing.

#2 Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon – Game Crashes on Startup on Uplay
There are a few things you can do to avoid the crash:

  • Deleting the Appache folder in Steam folder and restarting Steam can also help to fix the issue.
  • If you are still getting the crash on startup, you can try to install this.

#3 Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon – Game Freezes During Campaign
First thin you need to do is repair your installation whether you are using Uplay or Steam. This should repair the damaged files. In case of Uplay, try re-installing the client or the game. I know that reinstalling the complete game can be hectic but there is no other work around for a bad installation.
