Call of Duty: Vanguard-Solving Technical Problems

Call of Duty: Vanguard-Solving Technical Problems

Error 6068, Dev Error 5573, crashes, freezes and other problems with the new CoD in the World War II setting

For more than 15 years, a new part of Call of Duty has been released every fall. The series started out as a groundbreaking World War II shooter, went through a crisis of ideas in a modern setting, experimented with science fiction, and now it's back to its roots. The issue with the subtitle Vanguard is again dedicated to the 40s of the XX century and the fight against fascists. But this time, all the best practices of recent years are used, and the scale of the network campaign can impress even Battlefield fans.

Unfortunately, as happens with most online games, the launch of the new Call of Duty was accompanied by numerous bugs. In this guide, we have collected solutions for all common technical problems with the game.

As for the official system requirements, they are designed only for 1080p (1920x1080) and 2K (2560x1440) resolutions. We reviewed independent tests of the game and added recommendations for playing in 4K (3840x2160).

The game is not designed to run on Microsoft operating systems older than Windows 10. In addition, a 64-bit version of the OS is required.

"Insufficient Memory" error in Call of Duty: Vanguard

Your PC doesn't have enough RAM. The best solution is to increase the amount of RAM to at least 8 gigabytes. Increasing the paging file probably won't help. Also, be sure to close your browser before starting any game. Especially if it has a large number of open tabs.

The problem may be that the graphics card is overheating. Check if the fans of its cooling system are blocked by adjacent wires. If this is all right, then try resetting the overclocking: go to the MSI Afterburner application and click Reset (if this program is not installed, then the video card probably did not overclock).
