Loadout Crashes, Errors, Freezes, FPS, Graphics, Tweaks and Fixes
Fast Paced shooters like Loadout are always fun to play. And if the game is F2P, the fun factor is doubled, and I am pretty sure that if you are a fan of shooting genre, Loadout isn’t going to disappoint you as a Free-to-play title.
Overall, the game looks stable but being a PC gamer, you would know that many games at launch face small issues, which are sorted out as the time passes. In the meanwhile, if you are looking for a workaround or a fix for any problem, you might be facing, you can browse through the following troubleshooting guide.
#1 Loadout – The game Crashes With C++ Runtime Error
If you are experiencing this error, I will recommend that you first uninstall Alienware Command Center (ACC). If you don’t have this tool, and you are still getting the crash, you should try re-installing directx and update your GFX drivers. Still not working? Try adding “-DX11:0” to Steam Launch options to make it work.
If the problem still persists, you can always open a support ticket by following this link.
#2 Loadout – Can’t Update the Game
If you can’t update the game or somehow your update is stuck, you should exit out of Steam and then log back in to start the update from the scratch. Sometimes, the update gets stuck due to the bad integrity of the game files so verifying the integrity of game files can also help you to solve the problem.
#3 Loadout – Game Crashes with an Error Message (300, 1000-1007)
These errors usually will pop-up if your PC is having difficulties in connecting with the Game servers. First, you need to make sure that the game’s “.exe” file is not being blocked by your firewall or any security tool.
If that doesn’t work, you can also try opening certain ports that can improve your connectivity:
9000 – 9040, inclusive (TCP/UDP)
#4 Loadout – Error While Connecting to Server/Connection Lost
If it’s not a permanent issue for you, it’s just that the servers are over loaded so if you try again a little later, you will be able to get in. If the problem is persistent, consult the workaround mentioned in #3.
#5 Loadout Framerate Issue
If you aren’t getting appropriate frames considering the specs of your PC (laptop), make sure that your latest version of drivers for your GPU. If you are on a Laptop, make sure that the game is using your dedicated video memory instead of integrated memory. You can use Nvidia Control Panel or Catalyst tool to select the preferred GPU.
#6 Loadout – Game Freeze Issues
If your game is getting frozen after some time into the game, make sure that your firewall or antivirus isn’t blocking the game, and also your GPU drivers are up to date. Furthermore, try to close down all the third party applications running the background as a conflict can also result into random crashes and very long loading times.
#7 Loadout – Can’t See Friends or Join Lobby
If you are experiencing this problem, worry not as it’s a bug, for the time being, developers are working to fix it. Make sure that you keep your game up to date so that the issue can be resolved once it gets fixed.
#8 Loadout – The Game Does Not Launch
If you don’t get a response once you try to launch Loadout, try the fixes mentioned in #3 and #1. The problem arises due to game files not properly being able to load. Adding an exception to your firewall/antivirus can help you make the problem go away.
#9 Loadout – If Nothing is Working Fine/Can’t Find the relevant Fix
As a last resort, you can always contact the official support and open a ticket. Guys behind Loadout are hardworking and their support isn’t less than impressive.
