There are a few unskippable logos at the start of the game, and it can be a bit annoying to have to sit through all those. If you’re looking to get to the action right away, here’s how you can delete a few of these.

- Navigate to the following locations.
- Here, delete or rename the following files.
BootAMDLogo.mp4 BootLogo.mp4 BootLogo_4K.mp4 BootLoop.mp4 BootLoop_4k.mp4
- Now, head over to the following folder.
- Here, delete the following files as well.
After you’re done, you can launch the game, and it will boot much faster. These video files might be back if the game receives an update and the client verifies the files. In that case, you’ll have to follow the steps above again.
