Game Crashes in GRB but only after i spawn in plane

I’m having the exact same issue. Updating graphic drivers doesn’t seem to solve it.


have you looked in your log?

Do you get the kernel-power 41 error?

Same. Often it is on plane crashes, but also just mid-game. Only once I got an error log, otherwise it is just an instant close. Last time it was the second I pressed “M” to look at the map. I could rejoin in the last minute and finish 1st place, but it is REALLY not fun.


I have same issue, my game crashes after getting killed in a plane or when flying a plane and pressing ‘M’(map) button. just straight to desktop. Annoing as hell, and gfx,windows drivers, settings nor reloading WT didn’t help. using 3070 and amx cpu.


Seems I’m having the same issue too,

No answer from Gaijin support I did log it with them.


no response here either. I havent had much of an issue here lately, but im sure as soon as i play next it will crash lol.

I am also getting the same crashing straight to desktop with no error, since the last update. I also noticed it is usually just after I died, this last time specifically while in a plane in Ground RB. Might have also previously been when dying in a plane.
I will try logging it with Gaijin too, surely when loads of people have reported similar issues and the circumstances it crashes it should be easier to fix?

Hi! Same issue here… Sometimes WT works for hours and other time it just… closes. Lately I have been seeing a crash report form and a “restart” option but it is very rare. No help in the event viewer… MSI 4090 works like a charm during stress tests and in all other games / applications (DaVinci Resolve, Furmar, 3dMark etc).
I thought that I nailed it down with nVidia Reflex - after disabling this frame buffer optimization tech, it felt like the game was fixed. Flying / end of battle stats / nothing caused an “immediate unexpected return to desktop”. Unfortunately when the evening came, so did the curse of return do desktop.
I have run out of ideas. Hope that someone will finally find out what is happening. It is also extremely nice of Gajin to encrypt logs… yeah…


Ah as for the setup: AMD 7950X 64GB RAM and MSI Gaming X Trio RTX 4090…

Having the same problem.

When i’m in RB and I’m in a plane and I open the map…

Instant crash to desktop. System 13900k + RTX 4090.

I’ve deleted cache… verified the game… updated drivers… twice each.


i think it is a 4090 issue

Same issue here, also running 4090 and 13900k. Only an issue in Ground battles (I only play Ground RB, no arcade or sim). If I don’t get in a plane, no issue. If I get in a plane and don’t look at the map, scorecard, or die; I’m fine.

Game will freeze sometimes ~20% when checking leaderboard in a plane in GRB
Game will freeze almost always when looking at map in plane in GRB, or after dying and when going back to the vehicle selection. Occurs maybe 95% of the time.

nah got same issues on a 3080, and my brother in law got this issue on an amd 7900xt

I’m having the same issue, the game will be fine for a little bit but will end up randomly sending me to the desktop with a 1080 TI,

Out of curiosity, are any of you with crashes running Razer Cortex software?

Very constructive feedback. Thank you for your time.

You are welcome.
