At times, the only thing that you can do is to keep the software updated.

Fix #3: Ensure that your PC meets  the system requirements.

f your PC is old, make sure that you double check if it meets the minimum system requirements. The game needs a decent set of hardware components in order to run properly.

  2. Type in “control panel” and select Control Panel.
  3. Change the View by dropdown to Small icons and click on Device Manager.
  4. Once the Device Manager is opened, click the dropdown for Network adapters.
  5. Find your network adapter and right-click on it.
  6. Select Update driver.
  7. Select Search automatically for drivers.

Fix #5: Close other heavy applications.

If everything is up-to-date but the game crashing issue continues, it may be caused by interference from other applications. It’s also possible that your PC may be struggling to run the game and is running out of resources. Try to see if Battlefield 2042 will work normally when there are no other apps running.

It’s been observed that some security software as well as popular apps such as Discord, Spotify, MSI Afterburner, overclocking software, among others can cause random crashes with certain games. 

If you’re running any of these apps, consider closing them via the Task Manager and check for crashing issues again. To do that, simply open Task Manager by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESC and right click > select End Task to close the apps from there. 

Fix #6: Do not overclock.
