There is a long list of proposed causes including: earthquakes, famine, introduction of iron age bladed weapons, new chariot designs, rise of a social class of mercenaries, class warfare, overturn of the city-state social model, pirates, Sea Peoples, and even World War 0.

The rise of the mercenary class is particularly interesting to me as the "Hibaru" are numbered among them and the Hebrews/Israelites appear on the scene about this time along with the Joshua legend claiming to have conquered cities including some thought to have actually been conquered by the Hittites or Egyptians with the help of mercenaries.
