Reduce strain on your PC/System

If you have too many programs or apps open on your PC/Console, you may have issues running a more intensive title like Sniper Elite 5. In some cases, too much strain on your system or PC can lead to crashes. Check if you have any other games or apps open that divert too much focus away from the game before trying to reload Sniper Elite 5.

Update your Drivers

PC players have a more complex series of issues they can run into. If you're playing Sniper Elite 5 with outdated drivers, your game could crash and run irregularly. Check your drivers to ensure they're updated with the latest version to avoid in-game crashes.

Enable Anti-Cheat

If you want to play any of Sniper Elite 5's multiplayer modes on PC, you'll have to install and enable Anti-Cheat. If you don't have Anti-Cheat installed on your PC already, Sniper Elite 5 will prompt players to install Anti-Cheat to access the game. You should be able to play online modes after you have this add-on, provided you don't interfere with the Anti-Cheat software.

Check Social Channels for Known Issues

Suppose you encounter an instant where you're consistently dealing with the same crashes or problems. In that case, we recommend visiting the official Rebellion Social Channels for the latest updates on the state of Sniper Elite 5. Make sure to check this page regularly if problems persist.
