Warzone Game Crashing to Desktop at pre-game lobby or mid-game: How to Fix?

Call of Duty Warzone hit the 50 million player mark just a few days ago and the game is showing no signs of stopping. Recently, the game got a new update which replaced the Trio mode in the game with Quads, new weapons, and maps.

It often happens randomly, but some users are not able to play at all altogether. If you are facing the issue as well, read on to find out how to fix it:
