Easy Anti-Cheat might trigger the Infinite loading screen problem. Normally, it links with specific games on your system. Yet, occasionally, when launching Apex Legends, it mistakenly selects a different game in the Anti-Cheat launcher, causing compatibility issues and the loading screen to freeze.

Here are the steps to repair anti-cheat:

Changing your computer’s DNS settings to use Google’s public DNS servers can potentially fix the Infinite Loading Screen error in Apex Legends for you as it’s a popular solution around players. DNS servers act as internet address books, translating web addresses into IP addresses.

Sometimes, issues with your default DNS settings from your internet provider can cause connectivity problems, leading to the Infinite Loading Screen in the game. By switching to Google’s DNS servers ( and, you opt for a more stable and faster connection, addressing potential connectivity issues and allowing smoother access to Apex Legends servers.

Remove the USB Flash Drive

I discovered a fix for the loading screen issue in Apex Legends that worked for me by removing a USB Flash Drive. After removing the drive, the game worked fine. Reinserting the USB recreated the problem. Many players have confirmed this fix also solved the issue for them.

Removing any extra storage devices, USB drives, or mobile adapters, and only connecting essentials, has been effective. While there’s no specific time frame, most players suggest closing the game before removing and reinserting the USB to launch it again.

Last Words

The “infinite loading screen” glitch has become widespread as proven by these forums (Steam, Reddit & EA) causing frustration among players, myself included, due to the lack of an easy fix. Twitter discussions reveal varied experiences, with some finding success in suggested remedies while others continue to struggle.

The official acknowledgment of the issue via Twitter lacks concrete action from the developers. Company reports touch on player complaints but lack a comprehensive solution.

It’s unclear if the problem is specific to certain platforms or countries. While recent patches might be implicated, evidence is scarce. Players remain hopeful for a prompt resolution to ensure a smooth gaming experience.
