Common Problems

  • Intermitent freezing in Overwatch 
  • Overwatch freezes when I alt-tab

If Overwatch freezes, this is usually due to incompatibility issues with other software.

  1. Some crashes are caused by Overlay Incompatibilities if they aren't fully updated. If updating doesn't help, try disabling or uninstalling these programs.
  2. Close all other applications to resolve software conflicts and free up resources.
  3. Update or temporarily uninstall any security programs, which may mistakenly identify the login module as a security threat.
  4. Update your drivers and operating system to resolve any compatibility issues.
  5. Reset your in-game options to resolve crashing and performance problems.
  6. Run the repair tool to repair any damaged game files.
