How to fix Destiny 2 getting stuck at the loading screen?

Here are the methods to solve the freezing problem:

GPU drivers

There may be an issue with the graphics driver. You should update your graphics card drivers.

Use the links below to check if you're running the latest graphics drivers on your PC:


Update - July 2022: The latest NVIDIA driver seems to be causing the game/PC to freeze. To fix this problem, uninstall your current GPU driver via DDU and roll back the driver. Then install the previous driver, version 516.40. Also, here is a guide on how to uninstall the graphics driver with DDU.

Verifying game cache files

Secondly, you should verify the integrity of Destiny 2 files.

  • Go to the Steam library
  • Right-click on the Destiny 2
  • Select Properties.
  • Go to the LOCAL FILES tab.

DLL files

Copy all DLL files inside the x64 folder and paste them into the Destiny 2 main folder, which also includes destiny2.exe. To do this, follow the steps below:

  • Go to the Steam library
  • Right-click on Destiny 2
  • Hover your mouse cursor over "Manage"
  • Click on Browse local files
  • Open the bin folder, then open the x64 folder
  • Copy all DLL files in the x64 folder. There should be four DLL files.
  • Go back to Destiny 2 main folder.
  • Paste the copied files into that folder.
  • Run and play the game now.

  • PC Spec = 12900k with 3080ti crashes during startup. gets past ” Press Eneter” screen then a few seconds later during circle animation, it freezes.

  • Worked for me !! ….but …
    1 Additional step was needed, I had to “verify the integrity of game files” in Steam itself, afterwards it worked perfectly!!
    Thanks !

    • Didn’t solve my problem, when I run the game it does say it is running in steam but no screen appears for the game, everything is updates including the updates for win 11 just today.

      • OK so I wanted to figure this out, for some reason if you install it on another drive (where you install all your games) in my case D: it will not open any screen only the anti cheat runs on the first run and then nothing happens which makes me think, it’s a problem with the anti cheat not liking to be installed on another drive. I had to make room on my C: drive booted it up and was playing the game in no time. This is the first game ever that I can think of that wouldn’t run properly from another drive.
