After Valorant Patch 7.07 went live, many users reported a Valorant critical error crash dump that kicked them off the game.
As Valorant Episode 7 Act 2 enters its final month, Riot Games is delivering routine patches to keep gameplay at the highest possible level. Not only did Valorant Patch 7.07 reverse the unpopular rank restrictions from the previous patch, but it also implemented a long list of bug fixes for Agents, audio, gameplay, and Premier.
Unfortunately, Riot Games has still not found a permanent solution to the Valorant critical error bug that has plagued the game for months. Here's how to fix the frustrating error in Valorant Patch 7.07.
Valorant Critical Error Crash Dump
The Valorant critical error causes Valorant to unexpectedly close without much explanation. Then, the Windows error message asks if users want to create a crash dump to aid the developers in troubleshooting the issue.
The error stems from a whole list of possible causes, like corrupted game files, outdated graphics drivers, software issues, and more. Riot Games' FPS game cannot run smoothly (or at all) if something on your PC interferes with Valorant.
Valorant Critical Error Crash Dump: How to Fix
To fix the Valorant critical error crash dump issue, players can first restart their PC. Sometimes, a random game or PC error causes Valorant to crash, so restarting both your PC and the game can easily fix the problem in more minor cases.
Those who still continue experiencing the random crashes should try one of the following fixes:
- Install all PC updates.
- Disable third party programs.
- Update your graphics card drivers.
- Uninstall and then Reinstall Valorant.
Generally, as long as your PC and graphics card drivers are all updated and you minimize third party programs, you should experience minimal Valorant critical error issues.
