When you come into a game that has the black screen...

Press Start
Select "Options"
In Options, select "Video"
In Video, turn "Weapon DOF" from On to Off

If you play with DOF off still turn it on and follow instructions, you can see in the videos.

Back out to deploy screen and you'll be good. Make sure to go back and turn it off afterwards. Works every time

Been meaning to add this for a while and always forget, a friend of a friend was kind enough to share this on his activity feed.

    Great catch! This should be a sticky.

    Learned this from a friend of a friend who figured it out. We've tried telling as many as possible. If I happen to get black screen tonight I'll record this and add video. The directions are very self explanatory though

    Write it down if you have to. Definitely nice not having to exit the game and reload it

    I used the back out and rejoin method but I'll try this if I get the black screen again (only gotten it twice)

    Inb4 someone crying about how broken the game is and that dice should fix this ASAP because they themselves can't be bothered to use simple quick fixes or even try and figure out a fix.

    Lol, much faster than backing out of game. Works as fast as going into your setting twice and it's solved. Hopefully not permanent. If people do this it will save them the time and headache of leaving games until it's fixed though

    Gonna bump this seeing as it's potentially useful and was first page for only like 20 minutes or so.

    Thanks and it is useful. I was wondering if it would disappear before someone who needed to see it got to lol

    Should copy your op and make another thread in the bug sections and platform sections.

    Bug section so the devs can see a little 'DIY' fix which would lead to the issue getting fixed and help out those that I having said issue

    And the platform sections to help them out

    I posted in an already going thread in Xbox section. My friend had posted about it and it got buried so I figured why not try general chat to get more eyes on it

    Yay! No more having to back out and rejoin, maybe (have yet to try it.) You sir, and your friend are the greatest!!

    Yep, it will work for you. All of us who know it on my friends list do it now and it's nice not having to dashboard or quit or anything like that

    Edit- Also like I said if I have happen to me tonight or whenever I'll record it so people can see. Very easy to do with the given instructions though.

    This needs a Sticky!
    I loaded into a black screen first thing last night. Tried this little tip and presto...right into the game with no more black screen. Way better than quitting and reloading into a different match.

    Sticky,Sticky for this little tricky,tricky!

    Thanks bro. It works perfectly. Also, I will never put back that horrible blur. I always hated that garbage but I did not know you could turn it off.

    What if my DOF was already set to "off" and I get the Black Screen Glitch?
