Random crashes to desktop in the course of regular gameplay

Issue Description:
Random crash to desktop in the middle of online games. Very few crashes in the past year, but in this past week have been occasionally crashing out of games to desktop. I load into the maps just fine and it’s usually fine on finishing them although I’ve had 2 instances of crashing out on progressing past the reward screen. Latest crash was in the finale of Screaming Bell, but it’s also happened on a few other campaign maps including some of the dlc leading me to believe it’s not a map-specific problem. I have installed a few new mods in the past week: Parry Indicator, Dodge Count UI and Weaves Helper (unsanctioned so not in unmodded realm anyway), but the random crashing is still happening even after re-disabling all these mods a few days back.

Hi @checking27,

Sorry to hear this.

Your crashes logs are truncated and unfortunately due to being cut off are missing data to help with troubleshooting.

I can see an Exit Code produced (0xC0000409), which can possibly indicate an issue with corrupted files. So, a couple of things worth trying first:

  • Verify Integrity of Game Files
  1. Right-click Vermintide 2 in your Steam library sidebar
  2. Select ‘Properties’
  3. Select the ‘Local Files’ tab
  4. Select the ‘Verify the Integrity of Game Files’ button
  5. When complete, close and reopen Steam

If the issue still persists, then I would also recommend to try disabling all mods to check if stability improves. If so, then please reintroduce your mods one-by-one to determine the culprit.

Please let me know how you get on!
