How to fix Fortnite texture issues
If you drop into a game of Fortnite and the textures haven't loaded in, not only is it pretty bad to look at but it can also negatively impact your gameplay. Here are our tips on how to fix the Fortnite textures not loading issue.
Lower your graphics settings
If you don't use a high-end PC, you may encounter graphical issues if you set the graphics settings to High. If you go to the Video Settings, you can easily change your graphics settings to make them more suitable for your setup. Textures not loading in may be a result of these settings being too high, so setting the Quality to low or medium, and the View Distance to near or medium may solve this problem.
Within the Fortnite game settings themselves, it is also worth trying to set the display mode to fullscreen rather than windowed. Consider as well, capping the frame rate on the game. In many cases, this will be automatically set to have no cap. So putting in a cap of 120fps or 60fps may make a difference. Apply the settings, and then start a new game to see if it fixes the problem.
Additionally, in the Advanced Graphics tab, think about disabling features such as Vsync and Motion Blur. And finally, some players have found that disabling replays can help to reduce texture related problems.
Install Fortnite onto an SSD
You may find that saving Fortnite onto an HDD means you experience rendering issues and longer loading times. If you're on a console and use its internal storage to hold Fortnite, installing the game onto an external SSD storage device may solve your rendering issues, although they aren't cheap.
The same applies for PC players who still use HDDs to hold their games. Upgrading to an SSD will speed up those loading times and hopefully fix any texture issues you have.
