8 Ghost Recon Wildlands Problems & Fixes

Online problems can ruin a massive online role-playing game like Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. Ghost Recon Wildlands problems were a huge deal in the days and weeks after the game’s March launch. Today, Ghost Recon Wildlands has a large group of users that play. Many of the serious bugs are gone, but dedicated players deal with some other problems daily.

Some report that they have a hard time getting their friends into Wildlands’ different missions without them being dropped. That’s a huge problem, enjoying the game’s story with other people is a big part of its appeal. Wildlands is the largest open-world game Ubisoft has ever made. Unfortunately, some users report Ghost Recon Wildlands has issues rendering that stunning world. Plants and wildlife sometimes appear out of nowhere because Xbox One and PS4 have a hard time loading them. Wildlands has saving problems and missing missions even today.

Ubisoft engineers continue to release updates that address any Ghost Recon Wildlands problems gamers have. Also, gamers that really enjoy the title are sharing workarounds and tips to get other players through the worst of the game’s issues. Here are the Ghost Recon Wildlands problems we know about so far. When possible, we’ve included any fixes that Ubisoft or the game’s community have come up with.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Problems: Add-On DLC Activation Delay on PS4 (Updated)

PC gamers should hear non-playable characters talking in the game now. Ubisoft fixed this issue with a recent patch.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Problems: Some Missions are Missing

Some players still say that Ghost Recon Wildlands won’t show them their next mission in its mission map. Ubisoft is aware of the problem but doesn’t have a fix yet. Instead, the company says that you should get yourself killed by enemy fire. Next, you should close the game and open it again.

Xbox One, PS4 and PC gamers report having this issue.

Ghost Recon Wildlands Problems: El Gato or DJ Perico Missing from Region

Ghost Recon Wildlands problems don’t get more serious than missing NPCs needed to finish objectives. Players working to free some regions from cartel control could find EL Gato or DJ Perico missing. It’s a huge problem since they are a requirement for freeing their regions.

There are some missing Intel in Ghost Recon Wildlands, Ubisoft says. The company recommends joining another player in co-operative mode and starting Missing Story Intel together. The mission should show up for you both correctly.

Ghost Recon Wildlands: Slow Driving on Xbox One

Xbox One owners using the Xbox Elite Controller should download the Xbox Accessories app from the Xbox Store to fix a slow driving problem that sometimes surfaces in Ghost Recon Wildlands. After installing the app, adjust the analog curve for triggers to go full speed.

    Xbox one. Installed game will not launch. Once ‘installed’ all actions on Xbox dashboard lag. No quick fix methods suggested on Xbox help page working. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times without success. Thought disk might be corrupted, just returned from exchanging for a new disk but same issues persist. Xbox will still launch bluray and other games without difficulties. Please advise.

    On the first mission where u are to interrogate the lieutenant, the yellow dot is there but the lieutenant is not. I’ve killed all the others but the guy in the white and black suit is not there. I watched YouTube and there is a guy on the phone u suppose to interrogate, but on mine he’s not there.

    Had a problem with the HQ app. I installed it and syn it as per instructions. However I could not get satellite tracking working just made a clicking sound and no map. Tried a number of fixes but none worked. I found by accident that rebooting my phone cured the problem. This was an Android device don’t know about Apple devices.
