Could you please post a console log of the crash, as well as your user_settings.config file? These may be found in AppData\Roaming\Fatshark\Darktide

Edit: Also, when you get a crash, you should be able to copy the crash message to clip board. Please paste it here when you can.

I am getting this crash anytime i try to cast as well. Do you want my logs???

Clipboard copy below. This is happening to me as well. For help in tracking it down: I’m using a blue staff with “can not be interrupted during charging”, and it crashes instantly on hitting any enemy at all. Firing into the air? no problem. Hitting any enemy in a mission or the meat grinder: Instant Crash to desktop.

I’ve tried on High, Medium and Low graphics options as well, didn’t matter, all 3 had instant crashes before and after reboots.

Able to at least use light attack against the air, using heavy or the light attack making contact with a mob causes CTD.
