Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands is now out, immersing players into a world dominated by a ruthless drug cartel. Your mission as a Ghost is to stop the cartel by any means necessary. As a player, you can create and fully customize your Ghost, weapons, and gear. You can lead your team and take down the cartel, solo or with up to three friends.

Apart from the challenging gameplay, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands will also challenge your patience and troubleshooting skills. Players report that the game is affected by a series of technical issues, and some of them can severely limit your gaming experience.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands bugs

Players can’t customize characters

Being able to add your own personal touch on your game character is very important. Theoretically, Ghost Recon: Wildlands allows players to fully customize their Ghost, weapons, and gear, but this is not always possible in practice. Many players report they can’t customize their characters.

The character is appearing underneath the menus on the left where we are supposed to customize them, making customizing them impossible. This has happened on both my computers while attempting to make a second character. Please Fix Asap.

No AI voice

Players also report that sometimes they can’t hear the voices of their AI colleagues. Strangely enough, they can hear their enemies’ voices. If you’re experiencing the same issues, try plugging in your headphones. If the AI voices work with your headphones plugged in, but not on your speakers, try  changing your audio back to stereo on your PC and this should fix your problem.

Ok so i got no AI voices for the npcs that are helping me in solo play, i get the npc voice from the enemy no probs, anyone else got this or a fix, tried the restart and all that stuff

Low FPS rate

Gamers report that the FPS rate sometimes drops to as low as 20 even on high-end rigs. If you’re experiencing low FPS issues while playing Ghost Recon: Wildlands, follow the suggestions listed below:

  • Don’t use ultra preset, instead go very high and you should be able to reach a decent FPS rate.
  • Disable HBAO+2.
  • The game constantly searches for a controller and this reduces framerates. Go to Options and turn off Use Controller.

Game won’t start

Some players can’t even launch Ghost Recon: Wildlands. The game briefly appears on the screen, quickly flashes and then the window simply closes.

I click play and uplay come up and does it’s thing and then I get a flash of the ghost recon icon on my task bar and it closes out. I’ve restarted steam and pc multiple times. How do I fix this?

Ghost Recon: Wildlands freezes

Apart from the long loading times, players also report that the game often freezes. Although the game itself freezes, users can move the camera around. After a while, Ghost Recon: Wildlands unfreezes and gamers can then resume playing.

It literally took me an hour to even get into the game because of load times (which are beyond ♥♥♥♥ed) but when I finally got in i drove 20 metres down the road for the terrain to turn into playdough and the game freezes but I can still move my camera around. It just gets stuck there for 5 mins until it unfreezes and does it again another 5 metres down the road.

Other frequent Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands issues:

  • Audio quality issues
  • Blue screen during gameplay
  • Key rebinding issues.
