If you are a fan of exhilarating action and vehicular combat and a gamer, you must be a proud honor of Mad Max the video game. After scrapping the last gen ports, Avalanche Studios just focused on the current gen hardware to give fans the best possible experience visually.

The game has mostly managed to secure descent reviews and if we consider the PC version only, it’s a pretty stable and polished product. However, if you are experiencing any issues, you can refer to the following points for the possible fixes.

#1 Mad Max – Game Environments Not Loading Properly
You need to verify your game files to resolve the issue. Just make sure that you are using the latest version of GPU drivers.

#2 Mad Max – Game Stuck on Saving Screen
Try to exit any background applications you might be running. Also, try verifying your game files to resolve the issue.

#3 Mad Max – Harpoon Fix
If you are unable to use harpoon in the game, the issue could very well be related to nvidia surround or eyefinity. Try using the single screen and the game should work fine.

If you can’t save any setting (e.g refresh rate etc), you should manually alter that specific property in the config file that can be found in the game directory.

#5 Mad Max Graphics Issues Fix
First thing you need to make sure is that you are using the latest gpu drivers. If that’s not the issue, try installing the installers (redist, directx etc) manually from your game’s directory.

If your achievements aren’t being counted, you shouldn’t be worried as it can be an issue with the new releases. The issue should be auto fixed after some time (or days).

#7 Mad Max – Game Menu Not Working properly
Try verifying your game files and it will update or download some of the missing files. This should also resolve your issue.
