What are your system specs? Water (heat) gun requires advanced PhysX option enabled, since the 1.1 patch that was integrated into Steam version due to popular demand was meant for high-end nVidia cards when it was released. Make sure that advanced PhysX is selected in the game options.
On the other hand, try to unzip this archive into your Cryostasis folder (it's located somewhere inside Steam\Steamapps folder), overwriting existing files, it may help.

Specs are
Phenom II 940 BE
Saphire N-Vidia 260 GTX
4 Gi Ram.

So, with the new files, the same error =(

I dont pick it up, at the scene, play without it.
But now i am in a room. After the Cutscene, where i must open a door with a crane.
I need to push a butten, but in front of it, is that watergun. I cant push the button, without picking up that weapon. Still the same crash :(

It's unclear what's wrong, please write to our tech support.
Another possible workaround is to switch physx calculations to CPU and then try to pick up the weapon.

With software physix the same... Can you give me a email add for the support, pls?

It's here:

Did anyone else encounter the same problem in the Steam version?

I have exactly the same problem (Steam version) , has this been solved in the meantime ?

Mikealpha 01-18-2011 08:55 PM

Hmmm, no one ? Also I got no answer from tech support. I have no idea how to continue the game.

Could anyone provide a Savegame ? Chapter 6 (Ties), right after pickup of the heat gun ?

I've got the same problem with STEAM version, when i want to pick up the water gun after the echo.
My config is Windows 7 x64, GTX 460 with last drivers, Intel core i5, 4go.

I'm very disapointed... Have you find any solution ?

(Sorry for language mistake, i'm french)

In case anyone else comes across this problem, just comment out this line: 'call mess_pickup_weapon_heater', in Steam/steamapps/common/Cryostasis/Data/Scripts/game/player.s

Apparently it's supposed to show some kind of message when you pick up the heat gun, but I guess someone forgot to include it.
