PC video games are no strangers to in-game crashes and performance issues and Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate Daemonhunters is no exception. PC Players are reporting that they are experiencing crash at launch, in-game crash, and performance issues with the game despite that game being not that demanding. Here I will help you with how to fix Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate Daemonhunters in-game crash, performance issues, and how to get 60 FPS.
Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate Daemonhunters Crash Fix
A lot of PC players are reporting crashes and performance issues. Here I have compiled the fixes and workarounds to these crashes so you can play Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate Daemonhunters without any issues.
How To Get 60 FPS, Performance Fix
Despite having very reasonable system requirements, Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate Daemonhunters PC players are experiencing terrible performance and here is how to fix it and get 60 FPS experience.
First, make sure you have installed the latest GPU drivers and there are no background processes running using PC resources.
One way to fix Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate Daemonhunters Performance issue and get 60 FPS is by forcing the game to use DirectX 12. The game doesn’t officially support it but, there is a workaround. Go to this link and download vkd3d-proton-2.6.tar.zst file. Unzip the file and copy the dll file into the game’s folder.
In case you don’t know where the game is installed, right-click Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate Daemonhunters in Steam > Manage > Browse Local Files. A new window will open showing all the game files. Paste the dll here. After that, right-click Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate Daemonhunters again in Steam library > properties > type -force-d3d12 and press Ok. Launch the game and players will notice a significant boost in the game’s performance.
Another reason why Chaos Gate Daemonhunters is experiencing low FPS could be that your system has both integrated and dedicated GPU and the game is only running on the iGPU. All you have to do is force the game to use the dedicated Nvidia or AMD GPU.
Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select the game > select “High-performance Nvidia processor” under preferred graphics option. Apply the changes.
For AMD GPUs, open Radeon Settings > Preferences > Additional Settings > Power > Switchable Graphics Application Settings. Select the game and select the “High-Performance profile” to the game under Graphics Settings. This will fix the low FPS issue with Chaos Gate Daemonhunters.
Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select Chaos Gate Daemonhunters and make the following changes.
Anti-aliasing-Gamma Correction – Off
Antialiasing Mode – Application Controlled
Antialiasing Transparency – Off
CUDA GPUs – All
Low Latency Mode – Ultra
Power Management – Prefer Maximum Performance
Shader Cache – On
Texture filtering – Quality – High Performance
Threaded Optimization – Off
Triple Buffering – Off
Apply these settings and you’ll see a significant boost in Chaos Gate Daemonhunters’ performance.
Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate Daemonhunters PC players are experiencing in-game crashes and here is how to fix them. Using third-party tools like MSI Afterburner, Discord, RGB software, RTSS, or more can cause in-game crashes. Disable these third-party tools and the game will stop crashing.

Game Not Starting, Crash At Startup Fix
Warhammer 40,000 Chaos Gate Daemonhunters PC players are reporting that the game is crashing at launch or not starting at all. Here is how to fix these in-game crashes.
Before we start with the fixes, make sure you are using a 64-Bit operating system as the game doesn’t support 32-Bit OS. Furthermore, your Windows 7 have to be at least updated to SP1+. If your Win7 OS isn’t updated, install this Update and this update. This will fix the game not starting issue with Chaos Gate Daemonhunters.
Your anti-virus is another possibility why Chaos Gate Daemonhunters is crashing at launch. The anti-virus is probably blocking the game’s executable. Players can fix this by disabling real-time protection or excluding the game folder from the anti-virus, I recommend the latter. After that, verify game files and Chaos Gate Daemonhunters won’t crash at launch.
Still facing the Chaos Gate Daemonhunters crash at launch, right-click the game in Steam > Manage > browse local files. A new window will open and launch the game directly from the executable. Players might get an error similar to vcruntime140_1.dll missing or MSVCP140.dll was not found. Fix it by installing the latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables both x64 and x86 versions.
