Warhammer: Vermintide 2: Chaos Wastes Known Issues

Mods are currently causing problems, so you'll want to run the game without them for now.

Chaos Wastes is the latest expansion for Warhammer: Vermintide 2, and there are a few known issues players should be aware of. The majority are tied to mod support in Vermintide 2, so if players are using mods to augment their game they’ll want to disable them until the mod authors update their mods and render them compatible with the Chaos Wastes expansion. Other known issues with Chaos Wastes include Windows 7 users being unable to launch Vermintide 2, and the selected difficulty not properly applying for gamepad users. Here are all the known issues in Vermintide 2: Chaos Wastes.

Fatshark should hotfix the crashes soon, but those out there running Vermintide 2 with mods will want to disable them for the time being. Once the mods have been updated to support Chaos Wastes the known issues above should no longer apply. If you simply can’t play Vermintide 2 without mods you may want to hold off on Chaos Wastes for now, unless you can live with the known issues listed above.
