How to Fix Halo Infinite Crashing When Respawning

Is Halo Infinite crashing when you’re respawning in the game?

Xbox Game Studios and 343 Industries gave the best gift to their fans by releasing the highly anticipated Halo Infinite. After getting delayed several times, Halo die-hards can now finally enjoy this new title. 

Overall, Halo Infinite had a decent release gaining mostly positive reviews on Steam and Xbox in its first few weeks. 

However, things changed when new features were rolled out in the game. 

Since it was launched, many players have encountered numerous errors in Halo Infinite, and the number keeps adding up each day. 

One issue that you might face is the game suddenly crashing whenever you respawn. This means that if you die, the game will restart, which is painful to bear with. 

Based on what we know, this problem is due to a bug or glitch with the respawn animation of Halo Infinite. Whenever it loads, it triggers an error that causes the game to crash. On the other hand, it can also be due to improper settings and outdated systems. 

Today, we’ve decided to make a guide for fixing Halo Infinite if it’s crashing when respawning in the game. 

Let’s get right into it!

1. Restart Your Computer. 

Before changing your configurations, we suggest that you restart your system first. This should ensure that its resources are loaded correctly, and there are no temporary errors on your computer. 

Here’s how you can restart your Windows PC: 

  1. First, open the Start Menu on your Taskbar
  2. After that, go to the Power Options tab. 
  3. Lastly, click on Restart
Restart Windows

After restarting your computer, go back to Halo Infinite to check if the problem is solved. 

2. Disable Steam Overlay. 

One of the first things you can do if Halo Infinite is crashing is to disable Steam Overlay. This feature allows you to access Steam’s interface without leaving the game. While it can be helpful, it also puts an unnecessary load on your system. 

Check out the steps below to disable Steam Overlay: 

  1. First, click on the Steam tab in the upper left corner of the window. 
  2. After that, go to Settings and click on In-Game
  3. Lastly, uncheck the ‘Enable the Steam Overlay While In-Game’ option.

Restart Steam afterward and check if the problem is solved. 

3. Turn Off High-Res DLC.

If you’re using the high-res DLC for Halo Infinite, we recommend turning it off if you encounter random crashes in the game. While it brings more dynamic visuals to the game, it may not work properly on mid and low-end machines. 

Here’s how you can disable DLCs on Halo Infinite: 

  1. On Steam, go to your Library and right-click on Halo Infinite.
  2. Next, choose Properties and click on DLC on the side menu. 
  3. Finally, disable all the DLCs you’ve downloaded.

Relaunch the game afterward and check if it still crashes when respawning. 

4. Don’t Press Any Keys When Respawning.

After some digging, we’ve found out that some crashes occur on Halo Infinite if you’re pressing keys while respawning. While there’s no clear reason why this happens, you can try it on your side and see if it works. 

5. Remove Optimizations. 

Many manufacturers today offer software customizations to their hardware, which improves your overall gaming experience. However, these software could also cause issues with incompatible apps and games. 

If you’re using apps like Aura Sync, Armoury Crate, Razer Synapse, and other similar tools, we recommend turning them off or removing Halo Infinite from their customization and optimization list. 

Be sure to restart your system before launching Halo Infinite again to apply the changes. Go back to the game and see if it still crashes when respawning. 

6. Verify Your Game Files. 

Corrupted or missing game files could also be the reason Halo Infinite is crashing when you are respawning. Some resources for the respawn animation could be broken, which causes the game to crash when it accesses it. 

To fix this, see the steps below to use Steam’s scan tool: 

  1. First, open Steam and access your account. 
  2. After that, go to Steam Library
  3. Right-click on Halo Infinite and choose Properties.
  4. Go to the Local Files tab afterward and click on Verify Integrity of Game Files
Verify Game Files

Once done, go back to the game and check if the problem is solved. 

7. Reinstall Halo Infinite.

If repairing your game files does not work, the last option you have is to reinstall the game. This should ensure that there are no broken or missing files on your system and you have the latest working version of Halo Infinite. 

Check out the guide below to delete Halo Infinite: 

  1. On Steam, go to your Library and right-click on Halo Infinite
  2. Next, hover your cursor over the Manage tab. 
  3. Finally, click on Uninstall to delete the game.
