Why Does Rainbow Six Siege Take So Long to Load

I'm new to Siege, and I really like this game. But why does it always take so long to load when I'm in the game? It takes me forever to load in. To the point they are saying kick him or SSD, not sure what that means. I have an I7 7700k processor, 1060GTX Geforce, 8GB of RAM, and a 500GB HDD. Can anyone tell me what I can do to speed R6S up? Thanks!

For many players who installed Rainbow Six Siege on HDDs, the loading time often takes longer than that of those who installed the game on SSDs. That's why when someone takes a long time to load and causes others to wait together, other players always say "SSD."

Compared with HDD (hard disk drive), SSD (solid-state drive) is better in many aspects. It uses flash-based memory to store data, which makes the read and write speed much faster than the traditional hard disks. Thus, you can install all the games on an SSD to get a better gaming experience.

If you don't want to upgrade to SSD yet, you can try these methods and see if they help:

If none of these help, try replacing the HDD with an SSD. You can use disk cloning software like EaseUS Partition Master Professional to clone everything on your HDD to the SSD, including Windows OS, so that you don't have to re-download and reinstall them again.
