Wuthering Waves: Stuck on 99% download fix

There are a few steps one can take to fix Wuthering Waves stuck at 99% download. First, you can potentially fix the issue by excluding the Wuthering Waves root folder and then reinstalling the game through both the installer and launcher. Follow the steps below to complete this method.

  • Exclude the Wuthering Waves root folder (the folder is found where you installed it in the installer).
  • Reinstall the game through the installer.
  • Reinstall the game through the launcher.

Reddit users have mentioned that this is the best method to fix Wuthering Waves stuck at 99%. After completing the steps above, there is a chance that your download will still get stuck at 99%. That said, with a little patience (around 5 to 10 minutes) the download will finally make it over the blockade and reach 100% and fully install.

If Wuthering Waves still won’t fully download for you, then it may be your wifi that is acting up. I recommend heading to the Ookla website and making sure your download speed is decent enough to download games. A good download speed for gaming is around 25 Mbps.

If you have tried both methods and Wuthering Waves is still stuck at 99%, then your last bet is to be extremely patient. Maybe focus on other games at the moment while Wuthering Waves tries to complete its download. Players have reported on Reddit that even though their download says 99%, this isn’t necessarily the case. After closing the launcher, and reopening, it’s actually much lower than that. So in other words, the 99% may not be entirely accurate all the time.
