How to fix Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Errors:

1) Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Crashes, for some players the game crashes randomly when they are playing or in menus before the gameplay part.

“When I enter the matchmaking screen where it showed every one’s character face that one or maybe that is the loading screen before the game, it crashes and I am unable to play the game.”

“The game just simply crashes and does not say anything else but just simply crash. It’s really  frustrating as I really quite like this game and I can’t play it. Someone knows any solutions?”

Solution: To fix your crashes follow our tutorial at the end of the post, in which we help you fix the major issues of the game.

2) Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Freezes, you might get random freezes during the game and you simply can do anything and you will need to restart your PC or force close the game.

“My game freezes at a random point in game every time. Please help me, I can’t even rank up and every time I need to force close the game.”

So me and multiple different people have the same problem, Every 15-20 min the game would just randomly freeze. After which i have to close down the game with the task manager. Kinda getting annoying, anyone found a fix for this ?”

Solution: We saw a lot of freezes on consoles. To fix them exit to the home screen, use the menu button and then quit the game on Xbox One.

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Performance Issues

3) Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Performance Issues, these issues are Lag, Stuttering and Low FPS or FPS Drops. A lot of users reported that these issues are the most common and they are making the game unplayable and annoying.

“This game is terrible optimized, I can only run on Medium Settings and I have a very good PC, if I try to run on high settings,it gets about 30 fps and every 10 minutes it freezes or crashes.”

“I really had high hopes for Treyarch this year. The beta actually ran well, but I just tried to do the first Campaign mission and Jesus Christ… Constant drops, 2 second mouse lag in some parts. So i dropped everything down to the bare bones and it ran a bit better, but looked like crap.”

“I have a mid range GPU (Nvidia Gtx 680) and a pretty good CPU (intel i7-3770) but My performance is all over the shop. I can’t maintain a constant frame rate at all. It dips in gunfights from 80 to 52, which I lose because of that and feels stuttery. Started with my settings of Ultra and worked my way down with no noticeable result. Currently on medium settings with a few settings off entirely and it still dips and stutters.”

Solution: Turn off Mouse Acceleration and Mouse Filtering in the settings. Turn Vsync off. If you’re using an Nvidia graphics card, be sure to install the GeForce hotfix driver 355.80. If this workarounds are not working for you, check our tutorial below.
