How to start the World of Tanks in safe mode without mods?

A number of mods, or in game modifications, are allowed for use at your own risk on the World of Tanks client.

However, mods may make the game unresponsive or cause crashes.

Game client malfunctions may be due to:

  • Outdated mods
  • Corrupted/conflicting mod files
  • Wrong game settings
  • Broken or missing game files.

The first steps to identify and potentially address this issue will require you to start up WoTLauncher and start WoT inSafe mode.


After this, WoT will start without mods.

Should the game run correctly in Safe mode, please delete all your mods and/or make sure you update them tomatch the current game version.

You might also want to try deleting the game settings by running the program found here.

However, if none of the previous steps were successful, please submit a ticket and attach a Wgcheck report.

The mods folder can be found at the default address: C:\games\World_of_Tanks\res_mods\X.X.X where X.X.X corresponds to the current game version.
