According to them, in case PC players are still experiencing any BFG-related crashes within DOOM Eternal, they need to submit a crash report by either going to the Bethesda Customer Support's Crash Dump Submission and follow the instructions from there.

They can also submit said Crash Report through Steam by right clicking the Doom Eternal icon, then they will go to Properties, and from under GENERAL, they need to enter the "+rgl_captureCrashes 1" under LAUNCH COMMANDS.

PC crash dumps will automatically write as a .zip file and it will be compiling in the "crashes" folder in their local disk's "Saved Games" folder.

Other Fixes
