Band-aid for crashes [Temp Fix for most crashes]
This comes from one of our discord users who has been tinkering with optimization with files etc. He has tested this and gotten a few other discord members to test it as well and he played 10 games in a row without any crashes.

open steam, right click "Squad" and click "Properties"
go to the "Local Files" tab
Click "Browse Local Files"
go to Squad\Config

open DefaultEngine.ini with notepad
look for: bSubstepping=True
change True to False
Save.

If you notice no difference it may be safer to revert the changes.
doing this may have a negative affect on how smooth vehicles drive for you (make look jittery)

Temp fix seemed to work for me, just played for almost 3 hours straight and no crashes.

3 games, no fatal errors. Fix seems legit.

Worked for me as well, even increased my fps a little from 30-35 to unstable 45-60 (75 before v7), but I haven't tried vehicles yet.

it fixes some fatal errors but not all fatal errors.
a fatal error is anything that causes the engine to crash.

I mentioned that if I play fullscreen instead of borderless I get more fps.Don't know why, because usually I get more fps with borderless)

does this increase fps mate?

Tried this. My game still crashes, without fail, after every round.
