Depending on where you’re playing Zenless Zone Zero, it’s always a good idea to tweak the game based on the best graphic settings. That way, you might not even need to troubleshoot.  

Best ways to stop the crashing and lagging in ZZZ

The tips below are methods that have been tried by the community. So, by doing them, you may get the Zenless Zone Zero to work quickly.

Update your driver

Usually, a game can act up if it isn’t running on optimized software. This can come from the GPU not being up to date. Whenever a new game comes out on PC, AMD and Nvidia put new driver updates to help the game run smoothly. Check whichever manufacturer you’re using if they have any new drivers. 

Double-check your internet

Zenless Zone Zero is an online game. Stuttering and lagging can appear during peak hours or if you have a weak connection. To avoid this problem, try resetting your router. If you’re using wireless, opt to play with a wired connection instead. But if those solutions don’t work, you might be playing during peak hours. My advice would be to play later on in the day or even the night when fewer players are on.
