Wolfenstein: Youngblood has been released for nearly two weeks now, and the general consensus across various platforms has been a bit mixed – there’s been some praise given to its level design and how it’s decent when played with a friend, and on the other end of the spectrum criticism has been thrown with regards to its bugginess, its subpar single-player mode, the RPG-lite mechanics, bullet-sponge enemies, level-gating, and the ongoing issue of microtransactions. Despite this, it seems like MachineGames and Bethesda are still hard at work to try and continually improve the game’s standing, and to that end they have now released one of Wolfenstein: Youngblood’s first main patches.

At a glance, update v.1.0.3 for Wolfenstein: Youngblood looks to focus on a lot of the general crashing and bugginess issues, which is sure to improve the experience of players who are still enjoying MachineGames’ co-op shooter. Game-breaking progression issues were also targeted, which could give some further incentives for other players to see if any improvements have been made with this latest patch.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at the patch notes for v.1.0.3 for Wolfenstein: Youngblood and see what changes were brought about with this latest update. As of now, this update is now live only for PC, with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 to arrive at a later date.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood v1.0.3 Patch Notes

Patch Highlights

  • Crash fixes: This update fixes crash issues for multiple platforms, including crashes for Windows 7 users running at specific resolutions; and crashes caused by attempting specific in-game actions.
  • Audio fixes: Fixed issues causing sounds to suddenly “drop out.”
  • 100% Completion & Achievements: Fixed issues that could prevent players from reaching 100% completion of Wolfenstein: Youngblood. (Finding everything in the game.) This includes players being unable to previously complete the Partisan achievement.

Crash Fixes

All Platforms

  • Fixed a crash that could occur if the player used Crush in specific areas of Riverside.


  • Fixed an issue causing frequent crashes on Windows 7 machines with high-end video cards. Previously, the game would crash if the player attempted to use the following resolutions:
    • 3440x1440 borderless window
    • 2560x1080 borderless window
    • 2560x1080 fullscreen
  • This occurred primarily with Windows 7 users using GTX 1080 cards but may have affected other users as well.
  • AMD has released new drivers to resolve a crash that could occur on Radeon RX5700 series graphics products. Please update your drivers immediately.

For PC users experiencing the "Could not write crash dump" error:
“Could not write crash dump” is default messaging given when the game client crashes and could be caused by several reasons. If you are encountering this message, particularly when attempting to start the game, here are some things to look at:

  • Please verify that your PC meets the minimum specifications of the game, found here.
  • Frequently, this error occurs due to old drivers or drivers that did not have a clean installation. (For example, users who upgraded to a video card from a different manufacturer without uninstalling their previous drivers.) Make sure you have the latest drivers, and it is recommended that you perform a clean install using tools such as Display Driver Uninstaller.

If you still experiencing this issue and are using the latest drivers after a clean install with a PC that meets the minimum specs, please contact our support team at https://help.bethesda.net and provide your DXDiag and MSInfo. You can find instructions on how to create those here.

PlayStation 4

  • Fixed a multiplayer crash that would occur if the Client player pressed an elevator button while the Host player was in the Journal menu on the Weapons tab.

Audio Fixes

  • Reduced the frequency of an issue that caused a variety of audio issues (volume levels, dropouts, etc.) when killing multiple [censored] rapidly with the ElektroKraftWerk weapon.
  • Rebalanced several VO levels to bring them in line with the rest of the game.

Gameplay Fixes

All Platforms

  • Fixed an issue preventing Client players from picking up heavy weapon ammo from downed enemies if they had the Bigger Guns perk. All players with the Bigger Guns perk will now be able to pick up heavy weapon ammo dropped by enemies.
  • Resolved an issue that was causing Client players to do substantially more damage than higher-level Host players in co-op.
  • Fixed an issue where the “Lothar and Juju’s Trap” mission could become blocked if the player first completed the “Missing Partner” mission as a Client player.
  • Fixed an issue that could allow drones to spawn from drone towers even after players turned them off with the floppy disk code.

PlayStation 4

  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Ubergarde to fail to spawn in the Da'at Yichud Labs area. This enemy should now spawn correctly for all users.

Art, Graphics, and User Interface Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that could cause objective markers for the “Destroy the Machines” mission to display in-world and on the minimap when the mission was not active.

  • Fixed an issue where Lothar was missing teleport animations and visual FX for Client players.
  • Fixed some areas of missing fog that was affecting vistas.
  • Added a notification to warn players of poor network conditions.

Online Co-Op Fixes


  • Steam – Added the ability to use the Buddy Pass from the Escape menu while in-game, rather than having to be on the main menu to invite a Buddy.
  • Steam – Fixed an issue that could prevent Friends of a Host whose Steam profile is set to “Private” from seeing or joining their session.
  • Steam – Added additional notifications when a Steam user attempts to retrieve the friends list when their Steam profile is set to “Private.” Players will now be notified: “Could not retrieve your Steam Friends List. Please check the Privacy settings of your Steam Profile.”

Miscellaneous Fixes


  • We previously released a hotfix that prevents users from using a 3rd-party application to cheat and add unlimited Silver Coins, Wolfenstein: Youngblood’s in-game earnable currency. This note is intended to clarify this fix.
