Crashing on Startup
Some people complain that the game crashes after they get the Epilepsy Warning. If you are also facing the same problem, the following steps can be used.

If this doesn’t resolve the issue, make sure your GPU drivers and Windows(or any OS you are using) are up to date. If not, check for new updates and download and install if you find any pending ones.
For a third option, you can move the game files to the same storage drive in which you have installed your Steam Client.

Error Finding Players
Few players have reported that they are having issues finding players to play Co-op with. For this, Make sure your internet connection is good and working. It’s preferred if you use a wire connection.
Make sure your NAT Type is Open and has optimal settings so you can easily join and invite other players.
Another reason for this is that most players select the Continue Run option at the menu. When this is selected, the game resumes from a random point you left it on and tends to find players who also started at this spot, making it harder to find players.
Simply select Quick Run or New Run to start new sessions, as this will allow you to easily find new players to play with.
The Continue Run option is more suited to players who are playing with their friends and want to hold off any session to complete with their friends later on.
