Why PUBG is crashing at the launch after updating latest PUBG version

Let’s discuss in detail why PUBG is crashing at launch after updating the app to the latest version. There is a bug in the latest version of PUBG which needs to fix by the development team. They might be well aware of this unknown issue. Let me explain you in detail what the bug actually is that needs to remove.

There is a set of files which need to get remove automatically with the install of the latest version of PUBG. But due to an error in the coding of the latest version, these files do not get deleted automatically. Moreover, these do not even have the compatibility with the latest framework known as Pakchunk.

As discussed above regarding the bug in PUBG 0.10.5 which makes the app crash at launch. We need to fix this bug manually till the next update from PUBG developers. Let’s discuss the points to fix PUBG crashing at launch: –

  1. You need to explore PUBG directory in your phone which was created at the time of installing PUBG app.
  2. Once you have opened the PUBG directory, navigate to navigating to PUBG/TslGame/Content/Paks/ folder.
  3. Search for the files which do not start with Pakchunk.
  4. Select and delete those files which do not start with Pakchunk, these are the files which are being carried forward from the previous version and should have deleted with the install of a new one. Unfortunately, due to a bug, these are not being removed automatically, so we need to delete manually.
  5. Once you have deleted these files, your game will start working fine.

This is all you need to do to fix the bug which makes PUBG crashing at launch.

There is another way out too which helps in fixing this. Let’s discuss that as well:-

  3. After that click on properties and select local files.
  4. Browse local files from there and navigate to the same folder as mentioned above ie. PUBG/TslGame/Content/Paks/ folder.
  5. After that, you have to follow the same process for searching and deleting the note-Pakchunk files.
