In its new fight against PUBG cheaters, the developer is beginning to implement some new anti-cheat systems. Unfortunately, it seems that the battle against cheater scum will also affect the everyday gamer, with many now experiencing a PUBG dxgi.dll error.
Below you’ll find the most common solutions to this issue, and how to avoid the PUBG dxgi.dll error popping up in the future.

If you’ve followed the above advice, or never installed Reshade in the first place, then you’ll have to look at the other programs you have open. It’s possible that there’s a conflict which is preventing PUBG from working properly.
Close all programs, and then open the game. Continue to open programs one by one until the game stops working. That should help you identify which program is causing the issue.
Failing all of this, I’d advise uninstalling the game, and then manually deleting the game’s folders from the Steam directory. Once you’re sure everything is removed, reinstall PUBG and play!
