Run as administrator.
Open up your file explorer and look for the drive where your game is saved. Open up BattleState Games and then EFT. Right-click on Escape from Tarkov and select Properties. Under the compatibility tab, check the box next to Disable Fullscreen Optimizations and Run this program as an administrator. By doing so, we are eliminating the possibility of the game encountering permissions issues. Apply your changes and exit.
Verify the integrity of game files.
If the crashes persist, perform a file integrity check. Open up your launcher and click on your avatar. Select integrity check. This will automatically reinstall any and all corrupted or missing files on your device.
Run a speedtest.
Use Ookla’s speedtest to find out if your network connection is suffering for whatever reason. If your ping is above 100 ms, this could be a very real problem for you when you are gaming, since it means that any input you provide to the game is registered only that much time after you do so. Using an ethernet connection is always the way to go for the best connectivity. If you must use a Wi-fi connection, try and restart your router to see if that fixes the connection.
