Battlefield 2042 crash: try this quick fix first

For the past three days, Battlefield 2042 has been constantly crashing to the desktop for me. I thought I could do nothing but wait for the first patch, but there may have been a simple fix all along: If Battlefield 2042 crashes or freezes, please try the “Verify Integrity of Game Files” tool on Steam.

In Steam, you can find the “Verify Integrity” button by right-clicking on the game in the library, selecting “Properties” and navigating to the “Local Files” tab. The tool will check whether all your Battlefield 2042 files match the files you should have, and if they do not match, it will automatically replace the missing or damaged data.
