What to do when your World Of Tanks game keeps on crashing
One issue that you might encounter when playing World Of Tanks on your Xbox Series X is when it crashes or freezes. This can happen when loading or running the game. Here’s what you need to do to fix this.
- Make sure to update the Xbox software.
- Make sure to update World Of Tanks to eliminate the possibility of a game bug causing this problem.
Solution 1: Restart World of Tanks
The first troubleshooting step to do in this case is to restart the game while it is running. This removes any corrupted cached data that could be causing the freezing or crashing issue.
Time needed: 3 minutes.
Restart the game
- Press the Xbox button.
You can find this on your controller.

This will select the game.
- Press Menu.
This allows you to access the game system settings.
- Select Quit.
This will stop the game from running.
- Start World of Tanks.
This will start the game.
Try to check if the issue still occurs.
Solution 2: Restart the Xbox console
One common cause of a game crashing is corrupted cached data stored in the console’s RAM. You can fix this by performing a power cycle which will also refresh the system. Press the Xbox button on the console for 10 seconds or until it turns off. Unplug the power cord then wait for a minute before plugging it back in. Turn on the Xbox after a few seconds then try running World of Tanks again then check if it still crashes.
Solution 3: Try to use a different profile
If the Xbox user profile you are using is corrupted then this could be what’s causing the problem. You can check if this is the culprit by using a different profile.
- Press the Xbox button on the controller.
- Select Profile & System.
- Select Add or switch.
- Try using a different profile. If only one profile is available then select the Add new option to add another profile that you can use for checking.
If the problem does not occur when using this new profile then you will need to remove your original profile from the Xbox then add it again.
Solution 4: Delete the game save file
A corrupted game save file that you try to load can cause the game to crash. In order to fix this you will need to delete this file then resync with the cloud.
- Press the Xbox button on your controller.
- At the Home tab open My games & apps.
- Select See all.
- Highlight World of Tanks then press the menu button on the controller.
- Select Manage game and add-ons.
- Select Saved data.
- Select Delete all to remove the local save data.
After performing these steps try checking if the problem still occurs.
Solution 5: Reinstall World of Tanks
If after performing the troubleshooting steps we have provided the crashing problem still occurs then this could already be caused by a corrupted game installation. To fix this you should try to uninstall the game then reinstall it again.
