When Apex Legends crashes on PC, create an “apex_crash.txt” file in the Documents folder. A small text file that contains no individual or system information. Shows the number of active processes and dump files at the time of the crash. This file can help determine if Apex Legends is crashing or if a software conflict or hardware failure causes the problem.
You can check the below things.

Check Internet Connectivity
Since we are talking about Apex Legends as an online game that requires a persistent internet connection, the first thing to check before proceeding with the methods below is your internet connection. It is possible that your internet is down or your connection is too weak.
Here are a few things you can do to ensure your internet is working correctly:
Step 1. Try opening several websites and see if they open.
Step 2. Disconnect and then reconnect.
Step 3. Reboot your router.
Restoring The System’s Actual Clock Speed
Another thing users do is overclock the processor. This can be the central processor or GPU. In many cases, overclocking can cause your game to crash.
So it is recommended to keep the clock speed at the original frequency and then run the game.
Game File Recovery
There are temporary issues with the game files or minor file corruption when updating the game.
You can quickly solve all these little problems in this way:
Step 1. Set up the Origin client on your desktop.
Step 2. On the left, click My Games Library.
Step 3. Perceive Apex Legends and right-click on it.
Step 4. In the context menu, click on the “Restore” option.
Step 5. Wait for the process to complete before starting the game.
Easy Anti-Cheat Recovery
The common purpose of this app is to check if a mod or cheat engine for Apex Legends is installed. If you are still experiencing crashing issues, try restoring the anti-cheat service that comes with the game by default. Installing the game also installs the Easy Anti-Cheat service.
Step 1. Make sure neither the game nor the original client is running.
Step 2. Open This Computer and go to C:> Program Files (x86) > Origin.
Step 3. Once inside the folder, go to the Apex Legends > Easy AntiCheat folder
Step 4. You can see EasyAntiCheat_setup.exe. double click on it
Step 5. Now click on “Repair Service.”
Step 6. Launch the game when the process is complete.
Updating Graphics Drivers
If you are still experiencing crashing issues, it may be due to an outdated graphics driver.
Follow the steps below to update your graphics card driver to the latest version:
Step 1. Launch the NVIDIA Geforce Experience application.
Step 2. When it opens, click on the driver.
Step 3. Now click on “Check for Updates.”
Step 4. Update the pending updates; reboot your system, and start the game.
Reinstall The Origin Client
Even after trying the above methods and still having crashing issues, I recommend reinstalling the source client. The Origin client is error-prone and crash-prone, and Reinstalling should solve the problem. Also, don’t worry—no need to reinstall the game. Back up your game files, reinstall the client and restore your game files.
Step 1. Close the game and the source client and go to C:>Program Files (x86)>Origin.
Step 2. Once inside the folder, right-click on the Apex Legends folder.
Step 3. Move to another location.
Step 4. When the file copy is complete, go to Settings > Applications.
Step 5. Find the original client and click the Remove button.
Step 6. Reboot the system after uninstalling.
Step 7. After restarting, open your browser and follow ths link.
Step 8. After opening the link, download and install the client.
Step 9. After installation, returns the Apex Legends folder to its original location.
Step 10. Now try to start the client.
Reinstalling the Origin client software will ensure that players have the latest version of the software. Origin games will perform better with the latest client software installed.
Clean Boot Windows
Step 1. Open Run Accessories.
Step 2. Type MSConfig in Run and click OK to open the System Configuration window.
Step 3. Choose Selective Startup on the General tab.
Step 4. Select Load system services and then use original boot configuration settings.
Step 5. Uncheck the Load Startup Items box.
Step 6. Then select the Services tab shown just below.
Step 7. Select Hide all Microsoft services first to exclude more essential services from the list.
Step 8. Yes. Choose an Apply option. Time then select the Disable All option.
Step 9. Click OK to exit system configuration.
Step 10. In the dialog that opens, select the Restart option.
A Windows clean boot removes third-party programs and services at startup to avoid potential software conflicts with antivirus utilities and other programs. If Apex does not crash after a clean boot, the player must find the conflicting software (mostly an antivirus utility). You can then use the task manager to restore all other software on system startup. So even a clean boot can make a difference.
Set Limits On The Frame Rate Of The Game
Step 1. Open Origin.
Step 2. Click My Games Library to open the game library.
Step 3. Select Game Properties by Right-click on Apex Legends.
Step 4. Select the Advanced Run Options tab.
Step 5. Then type fps_max 100 in the Command Line Arguments text box.
Step 6. Click Save.
Follow the guide above, we hope that you can find the way to solve Apex Legends crashing issue completely in whatever devices.
