Whenever I start up PUBG I can get into lobby with no issues and everything works fine. However when I click start, it puts me into a game but it goes to a loading screen (where it shows PLAYERUNKOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS) and stays on that screen for a very long time. While I am stuck at the loading screen I can hear everything and even control my character, but I can't see anything. Sometimes I will be stuck on the loading screen for up to 5 minutes or longer (meaning by the time I can see I have already been dropped from the plane). Once the screen goes away the game plays as normal. Any fix?

My specs are:
GPU: GTX 950 CPU: I5-4590 3.0GHz RAM: 8GB

    Do you meet the system requirements? What specs are your computer?

  • Does the loading screen problem happen every time, or just the first game you play each day?

This is a link to PUGB discussion form describing how to solve the stuck loading screen.

  1. Go to the file directory C:\Users{UserID}\AppData\Local\TslGame\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\ (Replace UserID with your ID)
  2. Remove GameUserSettings.ini file
  3. Restart Game

The loading screen is a very common problem that is linked mostly to bad game engine optimization.

In my case, it worked after I moved the game from the external drive to an internal SSD, using the SteamTool.

Also, the PC specs are at the minimum threshold. You should consider minimum 16gb RAM (OS takes 3.5 from that 8) and a SSD for fast loading if you don't have.
