Getting an SSD is life changing even for original Xbox.
Even this one is more than enough:

No I mean SSD. This is the exact one I have. I got it when it was $10 off. It works wonders. I wouldn’t have recommended and HDD as the speeds would be mostly the same, if not worse.
This game is a resource hog and will probably always crash. Honestly, I’m amazed it runs at all on the older consoles. I’ve found that this has a lot to do with which console you play on. My squad has a big mix of consoles, from the first gen Xbox One all the way up to the Series X. The older it is, the more it will crash. I’m lucky enough to have a Series X and I can’t remember the last time I crashed in a game. Sometimes I crash going into the lobby after a match but that’s about it.
The only tip I can give is to get an external SSD. This helps a great deal with loading back in to games if it does crash. You can get away with something small like this ($35) if you only play a few games often. The load times on these are way faster than the internal HDD. Been using one for a couple years now and I always load in to the game first, and if I did crash it was about one minute to get back in to the game from the dashboard. It also helps with rendering buildings faster when parachuting and driving. Of course with the Series X, it comes with the SSD so no need to buy one if you have the newest console.
I just snagged one of these babies. It’s like night and day.

get an inexpensive SSD. Adata makes inexpensive good SSD that I’ve been happy with. $35
Dang, seriously? Is it SSD? This is what I bought and it works great.
This is the one I ended up getting. It’s working well for me.
SSD external drive. Quicker loads, mermaids and it’ll give you quite an advantage. I recommend this one…
