Apex Legends crashing without error on PC? Fix it by setting 80 FPS as maximum

Apex Legends has been crashing for many users since day 1 of its launch. While Respawn devs have fixed some of the common crash issues in the game with patches releasing every then & now, users on the PC are still having the game crash in the middle of a match.

Thankfully, there’s a quick workaround suggested by the community to lower the maximum FPS the game can reach so it doesn’t crash. Several users have reported that setting a +fps_max 80 command in the launch options of Apex Legends in Origin completely stops crashes in the game.
