Stuck at the starting screen? Here are a couple of possible solutions for fixing the freezing bug in Mordhau.

There are two proven methods for getting rid of this annoying bug, and you can learn about both of them in our quick guide below.

Method 1: Reinstall the Drivers

For most players, the issue stems from old versions of GPU drivers and DirectX. Here’s what you can do to eliminate that issue:

  • Download and update your GPU drivers and DirectX
  • If that doesn’t help, then you will have to reinstall the whole game.
  • Finally, try to restart the game as many times as needed before it launches properly. 

In case neither of these tips help you start the game, then check out another method below.

Method 2: Remove the Unreal Engine Logo

Mordhau usually freezes on the Unreal Engine logo during the loading process. So here’s another solution that should help you get rid of the loading screen once and for all:

  1. Go to “SteamsteamappscommonMordhauMordhauContentMovies” folder
  2. Delete the following video files:
    • LogoSplash.mp4
    • UE4_Logo.mp4
  3. DO NOT delete Loading.mp4

It is also a good idea to copy the loading files somewhere else instead of deleting them indefinitely.

Hopefully, one of these tricks will help you get rid of the freezing bug in Mordhau before the official patch arrives.
