Marvel’s Avengers has had a rocky launch, and nowhere is that more evident than on the PC. The PC version of the game is riddled with bugs that cause the game to crash and freeze, perform poorly on high-end rigs, use every possible resources available to it and more. Some of these issues can be solved with simple tweaks, while others are beyond the reach of players and will have to be addressed by the developers. This guide will show you a list of known Avengers errors & problems, as well as how to fix or avoid them when possible.
Marvel’s Avengers crashes all the time
Crashing is the most common issue players have been experiencing. There are a bunch of things you could try, but not a single one of them guarantees success:
- Disable any overlays you might have (Steam, Discord, Nvidia Experience, etc.)
- Set the game’s priority to high in the Task Manager
- Close all background programs
- Turn on Debug Mode in the Nvidia Control Panel
- Disable Vsync
- Turn off dynamic resolution
How to get rid of blurry, hazy effect in Marvel’s Avengers
Even with motion blur turned off, people have been complaining about hazy visuals and a blurry effect persisting. The way to solve this is by setting antialiasing to SMAA, then turn off bloom, lens flare and depth of field. You’ll also have to turn volumetric lightning all the way down.
The way to stop getting this highly specific error message is by running the game in windowed mode. If you’re using the HD texture pack, set the textures to high instead of ultra. You could also try limiting your framerate to 30 in the GPU control panel.
Unlocked skins disappearing
A number of people have been complaining about the skins they’ve unlocked disappearing. They’ll show up as locked in the list, even though you may have already used them. This only happens when changing skins – the one you change out of disappears – so the only thing you can do is not change skins until the issue is resolved.
CPU 100% in Marvel’s Avengers
Unreasonably high CPU usage has been reported even on the beefiest processors. There seems to be nothing you can do about it – it might get better as the game is patched, but it also might not.
Avengers memory leak
Another one of the major issues are the memory leaks players have been reporting. The game just keeps gulping down as much RAM as there is, until there’s no more to take, which is when it starts acting up. Restarting it from time to time is a good temporary solution, until a patch adressing the issue appears.
