Description


Backtrace offers first-class support for the native crash reporting format of the Unreal Engine. Whether you’re an established enterprise studio or building your first project on UE4, Backtrace will help ensure your project is supported through every stage of development—from testing, beta, to production—with end-to-end error analysis and crash management.


Our Unreal Editor plugin simplifies the integration steps so studios can quickly:

  • See, explore, and retain crash reports
  • Analyze crash trends and view customized reports
  • Increase user retention rates


There are three common scenarios we see Backtrace being used with UE4:

  • Testing: Reduce the time to identify root cause with Backtrace’s web debugger and no-hassle symbol management.
  • Before rolling out production changes: Release engineers review trends in crash occurrences to ensure stability of the proposed release version.
  • Production: Development teams quickly and accurately capture crashes in the field, and help engineering managers prioritize those that impact the most users.


This plugin automatically enrolls you into a free plan of Backtrace services. For more details, check out our blog or documentation.
