Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Crashing at Bullet Intro Screen Fix

Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Crashing at Bullet Intro Screen Fix

If your copy of Red Dead Redemption 2 is crashing at the bullet intro, we’ve got some solutions.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is out now for PC, though the launch has been less than smooth. Some players’ games have been crashing during the intro screen, where bullets drop onto the screen. We’ve found a fix for this which we’ll detail in this Red Dead Redemption Intro Crash Error Guide.

Red Dead 2 Crashing at Bullet Intro Fix

It seems that many PC players have been experiencing a game crash when the second bullet of the intro sequence drops. This is a bug, and will likely be patched out soon, though for now we recommend the following.

  1. Disable antivirus, especially if using Avast.
  2. Update drivers, and reload the Rockstar Games Launcher

Can You Get Past the Bullet Intro By Using Safe Mode?

From what we’re seeing online, the Safe Mode option offered after the game crashes is not fixing this issue. We recommend disabling your antivirus software for a temporary fix. Rockstar will likely address these issues, and if they do we’ll be sure to update this page.

That’s our fix for the RDR2 bullet intro crash bug. If you need more help with the game, why not check out our guides hub? It has everything, from a look at the best horse to guns and legendary animal locations.
