its a crash dump from the game, I don't think the windows debugger can get much out of it.

What are specs of the PC?

try this:

Right click start
choose terminal (admin)
if it doesn't open as powershell, click the drop down arrow in title row and pick from list


copy/paste this command into window:

Repair-WindowsImage -Online -RestoreHealth

and press enter

Then type SFC /scannow

and press enter


Restart PC if SFC fixes any files as some fixes require a restart to be implemented

First command repairs the files SFC uses to clean files, and SFC fixes system files

SFC = System File Checker. First command runs DISM - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/desktop/what-is-dism?view=windows-11

not sure it will help
WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for XAudio2_7.dll
that is part of DirectX.

try updating gpu drivers.

can you look in System Information application
in the left column, click the + next to Software Environment
choose Windows error reporting
Don't click on the date header for the tight column as it will sort it strange

there are 2 types of errors that show here, Application errors & System errors.
can you see anything called a BEX Error or Pre Radar?

What PSU do you have?

that is a good thing.. although it still leaves me wondering.

I should have asked, what motherboard?
what temperatures are you getting?
I don't think its a driver as you would be getting errors.

what other games apart from valorant? One suggestion is reinstall game or change settings in game
have you changed page file size?

examples to show its not just you - valorant crash (no errors)

try running this on both your ssd
open command prompt (admin)
type chkdsk x: /f and press enter - NOTE: Replace X with drive letter of the ssd
2 paragraphs may pop up, agree to run chkdsk on startup and restart PC to let it run

this is just in case:
Can you follow option one on the following link - here - and then do this step below: Small memory dumps - Have Windows Create a Small Memory Dump (Minidump) on BSOD -

that creates a file in c windows/minidump after the next BSOD

  1. Open Windows File Explore
  2. Navigate to C:\Windows\Minidump
  3. Copy the mini-dump files out onto your Desktop
  4. Do not use Winzip, use the built in facility in Windows
  5. Select those files on your Desktop, right click them and choose 'Send to' - Compressed (zipped) folder
  6. Upload the zip file to the Cloud (OneDrive, DropBox . . . etc.)
  7. Then post a link here to the zip file, so we can take a look for you . . .
those game dumps mess up my driver listings as they add a bunch of things that aren't drivers. I am glad I remembered before it finished so I could run virtual machine in a shadow mode so it doesn't save changes. It did it again

Problem could be discord maybe?
note: its not blaming FortniteClient-Win64-Shipping.exe, its just there should be a driver name after the colon and before the Process brackets. But as dump isn't normal, the format doesn't work. Its not written for game dumps.

have you run anti virus or malwarebytes?

gone back to looking at the 1985 driver as it shouldn't be showing, makes me wonder. some searches of it seem to indicate its been used for some attacks this year. It seems it is used to send messages between sensors.

not sure if it means anything but I found the same Microsoft driver on 2 peoples PC today.
Mar 20 1985wtd.sys
Generally Microsoft drivers don't show in the 3rd party driver list, so it made me look... alas, I can't find a great deal about it. It appears to be a kernel driver.

try running the anti virus scans I suggested. Most of results online for that file are this month so makes me wonder if there is a virus pretending to be it or something.
It might not be anything.

is that a game dump or a mini dump?
the program I use really isn't any good for game dumps. The results don't tell me anything.

No I olny see Application errors & Windows errors reporting & Application Hang
maybe I didn't explain it well enough, BEX & Pre Radar will be showing as a windows error reporting line.
like for instance the 2nd one on my print out

so perhaps look again

it could be PSU. How old is it?

A BEX error is a “Buffer Overflow Exception”. This error is typically raised when Microsoft Windows detects that a program tries to put more data than possible in a region of memory. This is the computer equivalent of overfilling a glass with water until the water spills over

Pre Radar are memory leaks but in the games, not windows. Windows recognises the programs are trying to use more ram than they should be and closes them.

I believe that other people say they are signs of a bad PSU.

might not be...
I only suggested it as last person with those errors ended up with a bad psu.
that was a few days ago... so it was fresh in my mind. I didn't want to waste time looking for software solutions when it might be hardware.

goes looking for other reasons

this is for pre radar:
Try a clean boot and see if it changes anything - make sure to read instructions and make sure NOT to disable any microsoft services or windows won't load right - https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/help/929135/how-to-perform-a-clean-boot-in-windows

It doesn’t delete anything, it just stops non Microsoft programs running with start. Easy to reverse.

if clean boot fixes it, it shows its likely a startup program. You should, over a number of startups. restart the programs you stopped to isolate the one that is to blame.


BEX:
try running chkdsk on your c drive, it could be corrupted files.
i don't suppose they all steam games - https://windowsreport.com/steam-error-bex/

I suffered with this problem more than year ! I took this pc to the manufict he fixed it and when I asked him he told me it was a windows bug then I started playing games without any crashes and before 6 months I reseted windows then I got a lot of crashes as it was before !

i edited my last post... i do that, add to answers.

both of those are application errors. The BSOD are windows but programs just crashing isn't usual.

i don't think its ram but try running this overnight and see for sure
Try running memtest86 on each of your ram sticks, one stick at a time, up to 4 passes. Only error count you want is 0, any higher could be cause of the BSOD. Remove/replace ram sticks with errors.
Memtest is created as a bootable USB so that you don’t need windows to run it
 
heap corruption in the windows 32 bit subsystem.
I would suggest updating bios and reinstalling or updating sound drivers.

my last look into a similar issue turned out to be a outdated sound software for directional audio. the software came from the motherboard vendor and there was no vendor update. I ended up finding a copy that worked from the microsoft catalog.

symptom was I would start a game and it would just exit after a few minutes. (no error recorded)

googling gameinputsvc.exe and heap corruption (from error code)
Microsoft GameInput Application Reconfiguration Crashes Win 11 PC - Microsoft Community

note: hard to figure out since you need a Full memory dump to see into the 32bit subsystem with the kernel debugger.
best to update bios, update any sound drivers. remove any old add on sound drivers that you really do not require.

i might be looking at these two files as a source of the issue:
C:\Windows\System32\xaudio2_9.dll F9FA6D67 (This is a reproducible build file hash, not a timestamp)
C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Fortnite\Engine\Binaries\ThirdParty\Windows\XAudio2_9\x64\xaudio2_9redist.dll Wed Jan 15 14:35:21 2020

(just a guess, one look like a replacement for the other)

you might also uninstall and reinstall the microsoft audio compression driver.
msacm32.drv
and msacm32.dll
C:\Windows\System32\MSAudDecMFT.dll Fri Nov 5 07:12:05 2032

Media Foundation Audio Decoders file reporting a bad date.

I don't look at the 32bit subsystem very often these just be normal quirks that seem abnormal to me.

maybe go into windows control panel, find turn windows features on or off find the media features, uninstall windows media player then reinstall it to refresh the install.

note: looks like there were bios updates for audio devices and for the intel storage subsystem (if you are using it)
no real details on what was changed. audio bios update was in january of last year.
