Thought I would register to share this so we can have less issues. Maybe you could post a link to the steam thread from ingame temporarily?

From steam: Band-aid for crashes [Temp Fix for most crashes] :: Squad General Discussions | http://steamcommunity.com/app/393380/discussions/0/360672137532200436/

EDIT: another thing to try: Fatal Error fix (well it should help) | http://bigdgaming.net/threads/fatal-error-fix-well-it-should-help.10951/

---

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)

I played a lot yesterday and it fixed a lot of patches doing both these things but when everyone in the server started getting the fatal error I would eventually too.

Spono pointed out yesterday when the server starts to fatal crash players. leave your squad. Unassigned or dead players are unaffected by the fatal error purge

Trying the "FIX"

Yes if you are unassigned you will not crash it seems.
