Apex Legends Infinite Loading Screen

There is a frustrating bug in Apex Legends which makes the game take longer to load or keeps it from loading altogether. Here’s how you can fix the Apex Legends infinite loading screen.

Apex Legends players have faced various error codes since the game launched, including code:leaf and code:truck. Season 8 has brought a new menu issue that doesn’t even provide an error code to report.

You’ll find yourself constantly landing back at the main menu screen, and the game will keep loading with no way to progress. This issue has been plaguing several players, so here’s how you can get around the Apex Legends infinite loading screen.

Apex Legends players were facing server disconnects way back when Season 8 went live, but Respawn stated it was working on fixing this problem. They even provided 25 free battle pass tiers to make up for this issue.

There is one way to get around this, and this method has worked well for other players. Here’s what you should do:

  1. Disconnect from the internet around four seconds after you get in the loading screen.
  2. If it works, then you’ll find yourself in the lobby screen, at which point you should reconnect to the Internet and spam to collect all rewards.
  3. If it doesn’t work, then keep repeating these steps until it does.

There’s a chance that this might not work while trying it out on Steam, so switch to the Origin client. If you still find yourself facing this bug, then you can just try playing on a second account.

The reason we recommend switching to another account is that players in the EA Help forums have confirmed that the bug is account-specific. It’s an issue being faced by fans on the PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.

So far, there’s no guaranteed fix for the Apex Legends infinite loading screen bug, but Respawn Entertainment will probably patch it up in the near future. Until then, you can keep using this workaround or switch accounts.

We’ll keep checking for any updates by the developers on this issue and keep you informed about anything new they announce regarding the Apex Legends infinite loading screen.
