How to fix Call of Duty: Vanguard ‘The application has unexpectedly stopped working’ error
If you’ve encountered this pesky error while playing Call of Duty: Vanguard, here’s what you should do:
- Firstly, try reopening the application from scratch.
- More often than not, errors like this are one-and-done bugs common in games after launch. As such, opening the game once more should take you back to where you were – though of course, you sadly won’t be able to get back into your previous match.
- Make sure your Call of Duty: Vanguard system software is fully updated.
- As it’s so soon after launch, you can bet that Activision will be dropping a lot of bug fixes in patches. The chances are the ‘application has unexpectedly stop working’ error will soon appear in one of these patches. Therefore, you’ll always want to be using the latest software version. Failing that, try checking your console or PC’s system software too, to make sure it’s fully updated.
Elsewhere, there are some other methods if the bug continues reoccurring. It’s a good idea to check the Activision Online Services page. This details any server problems that might cause the bug to reoccur. If the error isn’t showing there, then it’s likely an issue within the game, so it would be worth checking the Call of Duty Twitter for updates on when it’ll get fixed.
