Overwatch is one of the popular games developed by Blizzard Entertainment. This is a first-person shooter in which two teams of six players can work together to form a checkpoint or escort a load across the map. Although it is a reliable game, sometimes there can be problems. In this last part of our series of problem-solving articles, we look at what’s wrong with Overwatch.

Before following the recommended troubleshooting steps for this particular problem, I recommend that you first try restarting your computer. This way you can update your operating system, remove damaged temporary data and solve most software problems quite efficiently.

Please note that your computer must also meet certain requirements in order to start the game without any problems.

Different factors can cause this particular problem, from missed files to corrupted caches. The following steps need to be taken to solve this problem.

Game File Recovery Surveillance

One of the main reasons for this problem is the lack of a game file. You can easily check if he is guilty by scanning and recovering the game files.

  • Open the Blizzard client and click on the Games button.
  • Click on the icon with the picture of the supervisor on the right side of the window.
  • Click on the Options button in the top left corner.
  • Select Scan and Restore from the list of available options.
  • Click on the Start scanning button when prompted in a message
  • Depending on your PC, the boot process may take some time.
  • When you’re done, try to start the game.

Check if there is still a problem when monitoring is not in progress.

Clear the game cache

The game stores data in the cache, which improves overall performance and download time. However, these data are often corrupt and if they are, such problems can arise. If it’s the culprit, you need to remove the game cache.

  • Open Task Manager by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc.
  • Click on the Details button to open the detailed version of the program.
  • If you are using agent.exe or the Blizzard update client on the Process tab, select it and click the Stop Process button at the bottom of the program.
  • Press the Windows+R keys to open the Run Request window.
  • Enter %Program Data% and press Enter.
  • Delete the Blizzard Entertainment folder.
  • Restart the Blizzard client and start the game.

See if there’s a problem.

Disable DVR display

Windows 10 has a tool for saving and transferring games. Its use can lead to problems with frame breakage and even prevent the game from working. To find out if this is the cause of the problem, try turning it off.

  • Open the Start menu and click on the Settings icon.
  • Click on Games
  • Deactivate all options it contains.
  • Select the DVR game
  • Disable all options in this one
  • Select True Play and turn it off.
  • Start the game

Make sure the problem persists.

Remove tools from Battle.net

If the Battle.net application does not have any files or is corrupted on your desktop, this may be a problem. Try uninstalling the Battle.net files so that the Blizzard client reinstalls the latest version.

  • Open Task Manager by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc.
  • Click on the Details button to open the detailed version of the program.
  • If you are using agent.exe or the Blizzard update client on the Process tab, select it and click the Stop Process button at the bottom of the program.
  • Press the Windows+R keys to open the command prompt and type C:programData and press Enter.
  • Delete the Battle.net folder.
  • Start the Blizzard client and check if the problem persists.

Check if there is still a problem when monitoring is not in progress.
