CSGO has evolved to CS2 with most of its players migrating to the newer version of the game.

One of the most frustrating problems players of CS2 have been facing is the crashing of CS2 mid game. In this guide, we will show you everything you can do to solve the issue.

Why does CS2 keep crashing mid game?

If you are frustrated by your game abruptly getting closed down while you are taking an intense duel in the game, you are not the only one. Many players have already reported similar experiences. The main reason behind this issue is yet to be identified as there have been no official messages from the developers regarding this matter. However, the community has found out some of the probable reasons, which are as follows.

  • Hardware incompatibility: This issue can be seen if your hardware is not compatible with CS2. Many times, players try to run the game with specs below the minimum system requirements of CS2. If yours is one such case, it is very likely that your game is closing down mid-match due to hardware incompatibility.
  • Pending driver updates: Many players have reported that they have been facing the error after updating their drivers, mainly the Nvidia Graphics Driver. This might happen due to the lack of compatibility of CS2 with Nvidia’s latest driver.
  • Overheating and background apps: Sometimes, if your PC gets overheated, several applications will keep freezing and crashing automatically. Additionally, in case of a lack of RAM or enough storage, the background apps can also cause your game to crash.
