Metro 2033 Redux: Checkpoints Crashing

Metro Redux has been out for more than six years now, and apart from the usual errors that players might face with any game, Metro has some other questionable issues. One of the most notable ones are the ones where the game crashes when loading checkpoints or selecting them. This issue has been around for the whole Metro 2033 Redux lifetime, and there don’t seem to be any fixes for it.

Unfortunately, this issue hasn’t been addressed by the developers, and there haven’t been any statements acknowledging it or offering to fix it in the future.

Checkpoints Crashing – Metro 2033 Redux

Unfortunately, we’re just going to come out and say it. There are no fixes on the planet that would fix this issue. It has been around since 2014, and it hasn’t been fixed.

There are certain workarounds though, that players can use in order to not lose as much progress. 

The only way to start relatively close to your checkpoint in Metro 2033 Redux is to restart the whole level.

Yes, we know that this isn’t optimal and considered a fix, but unfortunately, there is nothing else that can be done. In order to prevent this from happening in the future though, there might be some things players can do:

  • Verify integrity of game files. This is self-explanatory, there might be some corrupted files in your install that might be causing the checkpoint crashing issue.
  • A fresh reinstall. Even though verification might do the job, some can try a reinstall if they choose to do so.
  • Run as administrator.
  • Controlled folder access. Make sure to add an exception in controlled folder access for this game, because that might be stopping the game from accessing the checkpoints’ files.
  • Make regular saves.
  • Update GPU drivers and operating system.

None of the methods above are verified to be working, but this is to ensure that the game and your system are optimized in a way to prevent any issues. 

Whether this issue gets fixed in the future is highly unlikely, since the game is quite old now, and the developers have other projects on the horizon. The player base isn’t big enough to consider a fix or a new update.
