Method #1: Quick Fix

On the support, forums have been distributed some quick workaround that seemingly fixes this issue and works like a charm.

It is a quick fix because you only need to follow a simple process:

  1. Launch PUBG and start the game
  2. Now, when you are parachuting, press the Tab key to open the inventory
  3. After this, the game will start loading the textures correctly, and it maybe gets stuck for some time, don’t worry it is temporary

If this quick fix doesn’t help you to fix the buildings, not loading issues, you can try with the next ones.

Method #2: Disable NVIDIA ShadowPlay

If you have an NVIDIA GPU, you may have installed Geforce Experience to update your graphics cards periodically, and also you may use other features like game optimizations, etc.

The thing is that some users reported that this issue about the buildings not rendering correctly on PUBG could be happening because you have enabled ShadowPlay.

ShadowPlay is an NVIDIA feature that lets you record and also streaming your gameplays easily and without fps loose. If you are faced this issue, you can try to disable NVIDIA ShadowPlay following these simple steps:

  1. Launch Geforce Experience
  2. Click on the Settings button like in the image below
    geforce experience settings
  3. Finally, turn off the switch SHARE at the bottom of the settings window
    disable shadow play
  4. Close Geforce Experience and run PUBG; hopefully, all the textures will be loaded correctly this time

Method #3: Update Graphics Cards

PUBG requires a graphics card to render all the textures and models in the game. You can have installed the drivers that come in a CD with your GPU, and it should work without problems, but actually, when you faced these issues, it is time to update this hardware.

When you update your graphics cards, you will improve the performance and compatibility of your games. You update your GPU downloading the latest version from the manufacturer website or use a driver updater like I used to.

  1. Download Driver Booster
  2. Save the installer on your computer and double-click on it
  3. When the program is installed, you only need to click on the SCAN button
    scan driver booster
  4. Driver Booster will scan your devices and find your graphics card. Then it will search on your manufacturer website like NVIDIA, AMD or Intel for the latest available driver
  5. When finished, it will show you the update and the release date, to install it, click on the button Update Now
    update now driver booster
  6. Restart your computer to apply the update
  7. Finally, launch PUBG and verify if this time your buildings textures are loading correctly

Method #4: Increase View Distance

This is a little hack that could help you to fix your buildings textures, not rendering correctly. On your GameUserSettings.ini file, you can change the value of the view distance to let the game load your textures from far away.

To do that you will need to open the game files following these steps:

  1. Press the keys Win + R, in the window type the command %localappdata% and press Enter
  2. You will open the File Explorer, there go navigate to the following path:
  3. In there, right-click on the file GameUserSettings.ini and select Edit
  4. On the Notepad, search for this line ViewDistanceQuality
  5. There you will see the value 1. To increase the view distance change the value to 2 like this: ViewDistanceQuality=2
  6. Save the changes pressing the keys Ctrl + S and close the Notepad
  7. Now, when you launch PUBG, all the textures and models will be loaded correctly because it will start before

Method #5: Move PUBG to an SSD drive

This can be a hard method to do if you don’t have an SSD installed on your computer, but in recent times there are multiple offers on these drives.

Recall that these times, games need some new hardware to be able to run correctly, having an SSD on your computer will improve your gaming experience. Here you have a list of some budget SSD that you can buy.

If you have installed an SSD right now on your PC, follow these steps to move the game:

  1. Launch the Steam client
  2. Open the Steam menu and select the option Settings
    steam view settings
  3. There, on the left side menu, click on Downloads
  4. Now, on the right, click on the button STEAM LIBRARY FOLDERS
  5. There click on the button ADD LIBRARY FOLDER
    add new library
  6. In there, navigate to your SSD drive and create a new folder, may something like Games and click on SELECT
  7. Click on CLOSE to save the changes and also close the Settings window
