Halo has hit the top 10 list based on current number of players on Steam at the time of writing and that itself is proof of how iconic the franchise is. But if the game is crashing frequently despite having the minimum or even recommended system requirements, then it can be worrying. Don’t worry, because we’ve got your back. If you are trying to play Halo Infinite but the game is crashing on startup, one of the fixes that you are recommended to try is turning off Async Compute. Now, how does one do that? Here are the simple steps.
How to Turn off Async Compute in Halo Infinite?
This is one of the fixes suggested by the devs if you have an AMD graphics card.

To disable Async Compute, follow these steps:
- Head to the Settings of Halo Infinite by clicking on the option at the bottom right of the screen.

- Now close the game and relaunch it to check if it is crashing on your PC.
